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.

Accommodation is situated ideally to visit various scenic spots along Great Ocean Road such as London Bridge and Grotto. Within a few minutes drive you will reach Port Campbell. Twelve Apostles Motel is also quiet and offers decent amenities. There's pay to use wifi but however our personal wifi router had a bad satellite signal inside the room. Best to...

Thank you for staying at our motel. We are sorry to hear you had problems with your own personal router. If it was Telstra dongle it should have worked as the Telstra tower is only 600 metres away. We are currently working through a new system at the moment but due to our rural location it is not a simple...

Loved this little motel and wished we had more time to make the most of it. The lady who runs it is welcoming and funny. As described by others it's not luxury, but is clean and has everything you need. We had breakfast which wasn't cheap, but then is anywhere is Australia? I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it...

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed you stay at our motel. Sorry to hear you missed the kangaroos which are a regular sighting on our road from about 7pm to 7am in the morning when they cross the road from the National Park opposite.

The upside this motel is close to Port Campbell and the visitors centre. The downside, the rooms are very tired, the linen is old, it was quite a shock to walk into a motel at $170 for the night and find a room dates the 60's and a loud air-conditioner. Dinner in the common room was very ordinary.

Clean and well maintained ... This place exceeded my expectations. Owner was friendly and we had a lovely one night stay here when visiting the great ocean road! It's near 12 apostles and a short drive to port campbell...I would definitely come and stay here again.

Just 3 kilometres from the Twelve Apostles we enjoyed the sunset on the sea and then drove along the good solid track to the motel at a steady speed watching kangaroos bound across the road ahead of us. The property is in a rural location and all the better for it but you need to have provisions with you or...

We stayed at the Twelve Apostles Motel for one night in a family cottage on our way from Melbourne to Kangaroo-Island. It has a supreme location, nearer to the Twelve Apostles than anything else. The dirt road to the Motel is full of crossing Kangaroos at night, which are very fun to watch. The cottages are very basic and old,...
