Lovely hosts, they met us at our car when we pulled in with an umbrella because it was raining ... so thoughtful! They also gave us ideas for our day in the area and our onward trip on the Great Ocean Road. The room itself was huge and had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious.

As the title says very good stay, nice and clean, hosts were excellent and breakfast fab. Would have been five stars but for the cost would have expected a free bottle of water not having to pay $3 nor having to contribute towards DVD's. Small picky things I accept but for me a '5' is perfect.

While traveling the Great Ocean Road we stopped in Apollo Bay. Captain's is ideal in that it's not on the main road, it's on a quiet street, and easy/short walking distance to restaurants, the beach and shops. The Inn is immaculately clean, modern rooms and spacious baths. Staff is very friendly, they helped us with securing a dinner reservation at...
