Stayed one night only but everything was great. We were lucky to get the last ocean view available. The motel was full and the receptionist was very helpful. Would readily stay there again given its close proximity to all the restaurants.

We recommend the Apollo Bay Waterfront Motor Inn when staying along the Great Ocean Road. The rooms are very clean, are fully equipped with all that you need, and the staff friendly and helpful; except the WiFi was bad. The first day we could not connect at all, and the second day, it connected but no page would load, which...

We stayed here on our trip between the Mornington peninsular and Port Fairy. We had a room on the top floor with a spa bath and balcony. Good choice. The laundry facilities were useful and we were able to make a light breakfast in the morning before a walk along the beach. The supermarket and restaurants are all within a...

If you have been travelling all day, there are three things that make a tiring day better, and it's: 1. A nice welcome that fills us in on what's local 2. A great shower 3. A comfortable bed On both occasions, we were greeted by the nicest people in town. They made sure had a run down of the places...

This motel is on the Great Ocean Road and seems to be fully booked quite often. We got the last apartment and this isn't even the real holiday season. It's location is quite handy for the wonderful beach and at approximately half way along the Great Ocean Road, it's a good place to stop for the night. Apollo Bay has...

We were driving on the great ocean road toward the 12 Apostles and spent a night here in the Apollo bay waterfront inn. All I can say is the front of house lady (Ania) was extremely welcoming and this made our stay that much more enjoyable. She was so helpful and went above and beyond to make us feel at...

We stayed at the Waterfront Motor Inn for one night on our way along the Great Ocean Road. The room was very clean and well equipped. Staff was lovely and very helpful. The only comment I would suggest is that if you want a little privacy, ask for a room on the second floor. We had a room on the...

We have just spent two nights at Waterfront, Apollo Bay. Our cabin was very clean and well equipped. It is very well located, within walking distance to everything. Anya was very helpful with information and gave us some wonderful tips as far as where to eat and the best sight seeing. We loved our stay at Waterfront. Thank you.
