My friends and I stayed here for the weekend. My room was comfy and provided the basic amenities. The road to the place can be confusing as you have to enter the car park for the 12 Apostles and then have to drive down a dirt road. It has bbq facilities which we used.

Location is excellent if you like to explore 12 Apostles. But other than that, it is not worth the money as we paid too much for what we got. Bed is quite comfortable eventhough we found hair on it as well as on hairdryer. Kettle provided didn't work but the staff had to exchange it later. Cottage was small and...

We are a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids) and rented the 3 bedroom house for 2 nights. It is separate to the rest of the complex, about a 1.5km nearer the 12 apostles. The house has lovely gardens, with cows roaming the fields behind the garden. It's important to be aware of what you are booking though...

The rooms are clean and comfortable and has all the basic amenities required for a country stay that has easy access to all the sights of the area. The cottages overlook farmland and the lavender bushes and smell of cut grass give you that authentic country feel. We were here during a heatwave and the small air conditioners coped well...

Booked the room for a night. The host was really friendly and inviting. The rooms were comfortable and cosy! Cleanliness was on point as well! Will definitely book a room here again if I were to go for another road trip along GOR in the future!

I stayed here with my wife and 6 month old baby whilst travelling along the Great Ocean Road. The best part of it is that it's only 3 kms from the 12 Apostles. So we could easily attend them for sunset and then sunrise the next day which was lovely. The motel itself has good sized rooms which are clean...

Stayed in a self-contained cottage for a night stop over while doing great ocean road and it was fabulous. The cottages overlook an empty paddock and hills which are fabulous to watch the sunrise over & contain everything you could ever need. The local IGA, a 10 minute drive up the road, has food necessities so you can cook your...

Given its slightly isolated location, it would be hard for any hotel to succeed fully and please everyone, but the Twelve Apostles Motel has done everything you could ask to give guests a pleasant stay. Comfortable rooms, an indoor pool (albeit unheated) meals brought to your room, a lovely countryside/farm style setting, and a friendly welcome from the lady who...

The room was neat & very close to 12 apostles & other attractions around it. Just right for a night's good sleep after the scenic ocean drive. one need's to drive to port campbell to find a good restaurant.

Very comfortable accommodation. Beautiful and quiet. Lovely countryside and Di was a most engaging host. Seen some of the locals (koalas, kangaroos and lots of birdlife). Would recommend as a change from the normal run of motels.

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay at our motel. We are happy you got to see the regular locals especially the Koala who turns up in one of our trees about every couple of days. Because we are set on acres in the country it promotes a peaceful setting with nature coming to our door.
