"Comfortable for a short stop"

09/06/2018

We stayed here for just the night on our drive through the great ocean road. The staff were friendly and polite and the room was comfortable although the bathroom seemed a little cramped. Everything is within walking distance so the location is good. They serve breakfast in your room at your desired time which is a bonus. The reason we were not happy was that we were informed by the staff that restaurants don't shut till very late and hence went out just before 9 to find that every place had stopped serving dinner. The mini bar was our saviour!

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear Praveen K, Thank you for your feedback. I am glad the room was comfortable, and our location convenient for your stay. I do apologise for the mis-communication regarding the local restaurants serving time. We try to provide current and relevant information to guests on arrival. During the quieter times, restaurants may close earlier than 9pm, without prior notice. On the upside, I do hope you enjoyed snacking on our locally produced goodies in the mini-bar - Kooka's cookies, Go Nuts and Prickley Moses Otway Cider and Beer. Hope to see you again soon! Kind regards Robyn (owner / operator)

"Great choice"

03/06/2018

Stayed here for 2 nights during “winter season” with 2 teenagers. We were met by a lovely lady on check in, and offered us the best prices for a family room. The location is in the center of Apollo bay, close to everything. The rooms were clean and spacious with 2 separate bedrooms. There was a small kitchen that was great for making breakfast and supper. Good selection from the mini bar and could also offer room service for breakfast. Free WiFi was a plus for the teenagers. Had a pleasant stay, and would recommend this place to others.

Dear Ehatlestad, Thank you so much for your great feedback. It is a great time to travel the Great Ocean Road and Great Otway National Park during winter with the same spectacular scenery and walks and waterfalls all year round! We look forward to seeing you again very soon! Kind regards Robyn (owner / operator)

"Would stay again"

22/05/2018

We were in town for the great ocean road running festival - and the hotel is located right on the finish line which was perfect for us. It's also right next to the pub which could be too noisey for some - we had earplugs and slept great! Staff were lovely and very accommodating. Easy to park, Italian restaurant across the road is awesome, would stay again.

Dear Ascott962609, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay here through the marathon weekend and found our location convenient for you. Looking forward to seeing you for the race next year. Kind Regards, Rebekah

"The Best Hotel on the Great Ocean Road"

16/05/2018

This was the only hotel in Apollo Bay willing to check us in after 9PM! We were stranded when our vehicle broke down, they came to pick us up, and even gave us a complimentary upgrade to a bigger room since we had a lot of luggage. The bed as so comfortable and the room was huge! The hotel was spotlessly clean, and you couldn't ask for better management. Both Robyn and David were so kind and friendly, and they were very knowledgeable providing lots of tips for local spots. We cannot thank them enough for their flexibility and their help getting us back on the road! Our original itinerary didn't plan to stop in Apollo Bay, but if we return to the Great Ocean Road, we will be planning to sleep here!

"Great for stopover"

12/05/2018

Room was recently renovated bathroom looked brand new. Great value for money and staff were super friendly. Check in and check out were simple and no fuss. Stay gave us lots of tips on where to go and what we should see which was great also. Highly recommended

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear hungrysumo, Thank you so much for the fantastic feedback. You are correct - we do have some great deals during the quieter months from May to August. We have also completely renovated some bathrooms, with more to commence in June. Glad you enjoyed the great sights around Apollo Bay including not only the amazing coastline but also the Great Otway National Park. We look forward to welcoming you back to Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments very soon. Kind regards Robyn (owner/operator)

"Awesome accomodation"

04/05/2018

We stopped at BW Apollo Bay on our Great Ocean rd drive. The premises are just off the main road so really quiet but still very close. Roomeas very clean and neat with a great king size bed that was suprr comfortable. We met Rebekah in reception who was especially helpful and made us feel like valued guest. Loved the freebies if you forgot toiletries like toothbrush or shaving stuff, reception had free supply. And FRESH local milk! Loved it!

"Good for a couple of nights, everything close by"

03/05/2018

We wanted to spend three days on the Great Ocean Road, dropping by some of the various seaside attractions and parks, and taking in the Twelve Apostles. Apollo Bay looked like a good half-way point for ending our first day, and heading out from and returning to on our second day. The Best Western Apollo Bay provided us with a perfect base of operations, easy check-in, parking, close to a number of bars and restaurants but quietly tucked around the corner from the noise of the businesses along the highway. Friendly and helpful owners/managers

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear Don_G_Wright, Thank you for choosing to stay with us for a few nights. As you explained, there is so much to see and do along the Great Ocean Road, the Great Otway National Park and the main Apollo Bay beach area. I am so glad you enjoyed our location, just walking distance to the nearby restaurants and beach. Great to have your feedback! We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind Regards Robyn (owner / operator)

It was a great 1 night stay for our Great Ocean Road trip! Friendly and informative reception/owner! The motel room is basic, yet clean and comfortable with good room amenities and toiletries. The bed comes with electric blanket to keep you warm. Great location! slightly away from the main street. Definitely recommended!

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Hi Sylvia L, Thank you for your feedback and recommendation. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have traditional motel rooms, all with King beds with pillowtop mattresses for great comfort. We also have apartments with a bit more space if that is what you are looking for. They too have King beds! Look forward to welcoming you back to Apollo Bay again very soon. Kind Regards Robyn (owner / operator)

"Ok for a nights stay on the great ocean road"

02/04/2018

What can I say a pretty basic motel in one of the larger towns on the great ocean road. Room was pretty basic but clean, pool was tiny but WiFi in rooms good and it is in an easy to find location and at a reasonable price.

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear Stevep1450, Thank you for your feedback regarding our 3.5 star property. I appreciate that you found our rooms clean, with good WiFi, convenient location, at a reasonable price. Kind regards Robyn

"Charmless"

01/04/2018

Bed was comfortable. And location good. However 1970s brick and primary school design was never that endearing. Completely without charm. Avoid if you can find somewhere else. Unfortunately we couldn't.

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear Geoff B, I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us despite the location and king bed with pillow top mattress and gave us the very worst score. Fortunately most guests on this site are positive about our friendly service and comfortable accommodation in beautiful Apollo bay. Regards, Robyn (owner / operator)

"1st overnight stop along the Great Ocean Rd."

31/03/2018

A very nice motel slightly spoilt by noisy fellow guests. Just the 1 night spent here on our 1st stop along the Great Ocean Rd. Our room was adjacent to the laundry room which fortunately was not highly used. The room itself was clean with all the expected amenities. A good choice of restaurants nearby. Very helpful receptionist who told us not to miss the mariners lookout who's advise we took. The view was magnificent.

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear Marlin4952, Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your stay overall, particularly the view from Marriner's Lookout - a close by favorite spot. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon. Kind Regards Robyn

Excellent motel in an ideal location for the resort yet off the busy main road. Reception staff/owner absolutely brilliant. Room very good - large, roomy, well equipped and clean with parking directly outside. Would recommend anyone to stay there.

"Great Location and Very Comfortable Room"

5
17/03/2018

Very Comfortable King sized bed, small kitchen with cooking facilities and a TV with great reception and quite a few Foxtel Channels. We were given a small apartment for the price of a normal motel room. It was very clean and quite cosy. The only thing is the actual shower recess was tiny and you had to step up into it which was a little scary, otherwise the bathroom was quite roomy and airy. We would definitely stay here again, the staff were very friendly and helpful and an easy walk to the Main Street. Also had free WiFi for unlimited devices. A very short walk to the beautiful foreshore and beach. The motel is near the mountains and they looked amazing

ApolloBayMotel, Manager at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear Catbar57, Thank you for your very lovely review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for highlighting our staffs attitude and that we offer free WiFi. We are continuing to renovate all of our bathrooms and have walk in showers. Looking forward to you staying again with us soon. Kind Regards, Matthew (Manager)

"Oh Gosh!"

11/03/2018

We paid $300 for a night - better to say: we paid that much for a nightmare. There was a terrible smell in the bathroom (somewhere around the toilet seat) because of which we had to have the doors open over the night to get at least some fresh air. For that amount of money we were expecting everything extremely clean, staff to be very welcoming and caring... less to say that we were expecting to sleep with closed doors!

ApolloBayMotel, Manager at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear MattandMaja, We are sorry to read in March 2018 that your stay with us last year in April 2017 wasn't what you expected. We would hope that you would contact reception about your concerns, especially as you noted our staff were very welcoming and caring. Your review is in stark contrast to the vast majority of reviews praising our cleanliness. Kind regards, Matthew (Manager)

05/02/2018

Though the rooms are a tad spartan (just concrete boxes), we felt at home here. Separate bedroom and living room and kitchenette. Near to Apollo Bay shops. No breakfast but the reception gave us some milk if we wanted tea or coffee. As with other motels, some guests leave their doors open and are a bit noisy, but not the motel's fault. Would have happily stayed longer.

21/01/2018

Great guy on reception welcomes you, but the rooms are basic. Bed was comfy enough and walk in shower worked fine. Rooms was clean too, but this is a motel and a one night was about enough for us on this. we knew what we were getting and got it, but did hope for slightly more. would we stay again? probably not, but that isn't to say it wouldn't do the job again if needed.

01/01/2018

We stayed here for one night during our Great Ocean Road trip. We didn't expect much since it was only one night at a fairly low key place but it was pretty enjoyable. The room was nice and clean and one of the few places we've stayed at with USB chargers so we didn't have to share our one adapter when we wanted to charge our phone. The person at the front desk was very friendly and provided us with a map and list of places we should check out during our trip. She also provided some good dinner recommendations which did not disappoint. I'd recommend staying here for anyone passing through Apollo Bay.

ApolloBayMotel, Manager at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear anceball, Thank you for taking the time to give advice on from your trip.

"Well beyond expectations"

29/12/2017

The friendly and diligent work of the entire management and staff is what makes this motel one not to be bypassed. We stayed here for six weeks and had the opportunity to see it busy and not so busy, to see the longer term service and maintenance programs. If it could reasonably be done all we had to do was ask. My wife was working night shift necessitating sleeping in the unit during the day. We were provided with a fan to provide some white noise and breeze in the bedroom. Nearby noisy maintenance was rescheduled, unasked, so she was not disturbed. The bed was fabulously comfortable. When we moved out I left behind a pair of expensive sunglasses and not only were they found (usually stuff left behind seems to be strangely not found) but happy posted onto me at no charge. I would fight to get into this accommodation next time we are in Apollo Bay.

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear BarryH474, Thank you so very much for your feedback. It is not often we have guests who see the on-going work we do to maintain and continuously improve our property, little by little. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us for the extended time, and that our self-contained apartment was suitable to you. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon to Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments. Kindest regards Robyn and the Best Western Apollo Bay team.

24/11/2017

Stopped for a night here while travelling along The Great Ocean Road. A very friendly welcome from Matthew along with some good local knowledge of dinner options in town. Our motel room was spotless and well appointed. Extremely comfortable bed, excellent bedside reading lights (so often not given much thought) and fresh milk for our tea and coffee. There is a nice pool if you want to cool off after a day on the road. Guest laundry available should you need it. No hesitation in recommending a stay here.

A perfect motel to start the Great Ocean Road and the surrounding forrest.

This was perfect as a stop over on our leisurely trip along the Great Ocean Road. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very clean - great shower and extremely comfortable bed. Room was a good size and the location was excellent. Literally no more than a minute or so from everything you could need. It's not a luxury hotel, but it does exactly what it sets out to do - provide an extremely comfortable, clean and convenient place to stay.

Stayed here for two nights for business and I must say it was a very comfortable bed. The linen was very fresh and smooth, the room was clean and tidy.

Dear Ashley L, Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you found the bed to be comfortable. We are progressively replacing the beds, with another shipment due at the end of this month.

"Motels and memories"

05/07/2017

I haven't stayed in a motel for over 20 years, and I didn't know how much I missed them. Living in europe, you get used to checking in to a hotel, asking if there is parking anywhere in the area and then spending 30 minutes trying to find somewhere to leave the car where it won't get burned by rioters. Compared to that, the motel experience is pure heaven. We checked in, we parked in front of our room, no hassle with our bags. We didn't use the pool (because winter) and I skipped the room service breakfast (because local bakery) but everything else about this motel is exactly the way I remember the experience to be. I like motels! We also got the advice to drive up to Mariner's Lookout, great view. Thanks for the tip.

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at Best Western Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear Fxhero, Thank you for your reflection and sharing your trip down memory lane. I am glad our convenient parking was helpful for your stay. There are many options for breakfast at the bakery and cafes just a few minutes walk from us. For future reference, we source our breads including the fruit and nut loaf for our breakfasts from the local Apollo Bay Bakery. We also source our milk from a local dairy - Apostle Whey Cheese. It is great you had time to fit in a drive up to Mariner's Lookout. We look forward to welcoming you on your next visit to Apollo Bay. Kind regards Robyn

The hotel is very conveniently located in Apollo Bay for the shops and amenities. You can park right outside the ground floor rooms so you can easily unload your baggage. The only negative comments are that the soundproofing is poor and you can hear your neighbours. There was also the noise from several lorries delivering goods to nearby shops in the early morning. Otherwise, well-serviced, immaculate rooms.

The rooms are good but the surroundings are not exciting although it is relatively centrally located and there are several good restaurants withing easy walking distance. As always during our six weeks in Australia, we only met very friendly and helpful staff. The room was well equipped.

"Old formula motel"

2
08/03/2017

Agree with other reviewer that this is a very average old style motel. This is really grim if your surroundings are important to you. Clean. Tiny rooms but well equipped. Shower had to be seen to be believed, was it really a 1950s relic? Do not believe the photo shown, goodness knows how they got it to look Iike that. The "swimming pool" is in the middle of the car park and looks very much like something associated with electricity production DO NOT HAVE BREAKFAST HERE. Our breakfast was just like an airplane meal, everything was prepackaged even the cutlery and the bread to make toast! Has guest laundry which is useful. The hugely redeeming feature was the amazing guy on reception, who was efficient and helpful in practical ways as well as suggesting we visit Red Rock near Colac. Which is beautiful, 360 degree views over lakes and countryside and well worth a small detour but we didn't want to continue along the coast road to the 12 apostles anyway.

My husband and I arrived for an overnight stay for our anniversary, we were in room 216 right under the stairs, next to the laundry room (10am-6pm) and only metres from the pub next door so had a small amount of noise but nothing too concerning and we had the best nights sleep we've had in a long time. The beds are so comfortable, very clean and top quality linen made for one luxurious sleep! The towels are very soft and absorbent too. Everything was clean and in order. Check in and out was friendly and efficient. Will recommend! Thank you for the lovely stay.

This motel is easygoing and simple. Our room was clean, functional and has everything you need. Bathroom a bit too small and shower box too. Bed quality is good. Internet can be a little slow but otherwise works. Parking is available. All in all a fine place for stopover.

We spent 2 nights here. It is central to everything. The room was clean. However it would be the smallest room I have ever stayed or seen. It had a king bed which we wanted but that was pretty much it. It was tight all round. The shower was big but the ensuite again small. A little to squishy for us.

Bed comfortable, breakfast ... massive! We had a bowl of fruit each, which was a meal in itself - and then a cooked breakfast which was equally massive. Full marks to David and Robyn who arranged to deliver the fruit early, while the cooked meal was being prepared, so it wouldn't be cold by the time we got to it. We left an item behind, and had a call from Robyn around midday to alert us. Returning, there it was. That's customer care. Thanks.

Dear BPinOz, Thank you so much for staying with us and providing this great feedback. Glad you enjoyed your breakfast. It helps us when guests provide their travel contact details on check-in for circumstances such as this! Thank you for choosing to stay with us. kind regards Robyn

Starting from the receptionist this place is very cozy. She gave us a bottle of fresh milk to be used with tea in the room. Our room is actually an apartment and we find it very comfortable and clean, exceptionally clean. Unfortunately we will just stop here for a night so the relax lasts a few hours. We advise this place for everything, location, politeness and comfort. There is also a wonderful restaurant in front of the Motel called Casalingo, a must! We are Italian and the italian food they propose is far better than some food I eat in Italy. And the price in line with the others.

We had a night here on our trip along Great Ocean Road. The owners were very friendly, the bed was super comfy and they stock locally brewed beer, Prickly Moses, in the mini bar that was very tasty. The room was quiet and it's just around the corner from the main street.

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at BEST WESTERN Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Dear Prairie P, We really appreciate your feedback. Since taking over the property in February, we have been progressively updating the beds.

"Great place for a getaway!"

15/08/2016

I stayed here for 2 nights with a couple of friends just a few weeks ago, and we were amazed at how great the stay was. First off, the staff were super friendly, both when booking the room and upon arrival (shout out to Matt at reception who gave us a heap of information about what to do around the area while we were visiting!). As we arrived quite late into the afternoon, we were given some recommendations on places to eat (The pub next door was a top recommendation). As we needed to check in on Facebook and let everybody know we'd arrived safely, there was no hesitation in supplying us each with wifi codes which we could use for our visit. Fast internet too, which I've learned is not always so common in Australian motels... The room/apartment that we were given was great. Double bed in one room, and two singles in the other. All very comfortable, with extra pillows and blankets provided. It felt like it would be very easy to stay a few extra nights, and it was super cosy. We'll definitely be coming back in Summer for a longer period no doubt! Being winter, it was going to be cold but thankfully the apartment had a fast-working heater which warmed the place up for us so when we got back from dinner we were nice and toasty. One of my friends was stoked that they provided Peppermint tea as well as other varieties haha. This place is in a great location, right near the shorefront and near all the shops and restaraunts. Although Great Ocean Road isn't a huge destination during the colder months, I can guarantee that this would be a great place to spend a few nights if you plan on ever doing the Great Ocean Road. Apollo Bay is a beautiful seaside town, and it's easily accessible to all the highlights the GOR has to offer. If you're going to treat yourself to the beauty of the coast, you may as well treat yourself to some good accommodation too. Thank you Apollo Bay Best Western! We'll be sure to return soon!

Very impressed by the way the staff made us feel very welcome and went 'way and above' what would be expected to make our stay comfortable. The rooms were immaculately clean, they turned the heaters on to pre-warm our rooms (which was great seeing it was some of the coldest weather in years - snow fell on the Otways), Bed linen and towels were very fresh and new feeling-and adding to the recently refreshed looking rooms - very comfortable for sleeping (big sized beds and bath sheets!!) Looking forward to my next visit to the Apollo bay region and experiencing more of what is on offer and suggestions recommended by the staff David, Robyn and Matt at Best Western Apollo Bay. Recommend a stay there to anyone.

I could not believe the charge 400 dollars for a run down apartment style room, we did the great ocean road and stayed at four places this was by far the most expensive and the most run down and we had to lug our cases up stairs, save your time and money and go to the comfort inn international, you won't be sorry, I have stayed there before and it s..ts all over this joint.

Stayed here with family on our way to Adelaide (great ocean road). no need to mention the lication its amazingly beautiful, the hotel itself is simple, quiet and clean, the staff at the reception was friendly and helpfull. we paid AUS345 for a studio and one bedroom apartment, which is not very cheap nor expensive either.

The property is alongside the plethora of other properties in Apollo Bay Area. The room was decent , with necessary equipment in kitchen and amenities in bathroom. However the rooms have a worn down old look, the bathroom seemed renovated though compared to the kitchen / living room and bedroom. Overall convenient stay for a day.

Very clean with everything you need. Lovely walks and views not far from the motel. Parking right outside your rooms which was great. Only problem we encountered with the town was that everything was shut by the time we got there around 6pm, but managed to eat in a hotel nearby. Could have been low season? Would certainly recommend.

04/11/2015

We stayed in a two bedroom unit for one night - very noisy, banging sounds all through the night - situated next to the stairs so heard everyone going up and down all night and situated right behind the pub so heard pub sounds all night. Our stay was not enhanced by the loud swearing echoing through the night from pub leavers at about 1AM and then the stomping on stairs which followed. Furniture very well used and unit very dated. Would not recommend this place if you wanted a good night's sleep. Wi-Fi very slow. At $320 for a night very expensive.

ApolloBayMotel, Owner at BEST WESTERN Apollo Bay Motel and Apartments, responded to this review
Thank you for writing the review. As you are aware it was a very busy weekend in the town and yes it was noisy. Unfortunately we cannot monitor the whole town only people that stay at our motel. Rowdy party goers came onto the property and caused the noise and we immediately called the police. We now apologise for this and I would have done so personally with explanation when you checked out had we seen you. This is a lovely town with great holiday makers usually – having been here 6 years this is the first disturbance that we have had. Please plan to come back again and enjoy the beautiful area and the great attractions we have to offer. Heather Brown

Maybe the standard is different? The price is higher than elsewhere. Units are small with tight bathrooms in need of a spruce and a better clean.

Rooms are clean and comfortable with everything you need for a short stay. Shower was roomy and lots of hot water. Beds have heating blankets and there's a heater/air con which works efficiently. Limited space in the room , but plenty for a week end stay. Friendly staff on reception. clean towels and bed linen each day and toiletries, tea, coffee biscuits and milk provided. We got a two night offer and the price was reasonable. a small pool in the middle of the car park area, a god send if its really hot or you have kids who need tiring out!

Our unit was clean and very well set up with all the facilities to meet our requirements. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and were happy to provide us with brochures, maps and their local knowledge information about the area. There was an Italian restaurant just across the road where we enjoyed an excellent meal. The breakfast which was delivered to our room the next morning with a friendly smile was first class. We certainly felt refreshed after a good night's rest at this relaxing location and ready to continue on our journey.
