The room was ok but there was just bits that weren’t. There was some sort of liquid or something all Over the wall in front of the bed. The couch was absolutely filthy and the bathroom was too. The bathroom door handle was held on by a screw. The bathroom wasn’t cleaned properly either. The tv remote would work for half an hour and then stop working. Checked out a day early.

We are very happy with our stay. The apartment is actually big and clean. And the beds are very comfortable. Wish we were staying longer.

The location was terrific - close to the beach and local shops and cafes. It is a very quiet spot, wonderful for a relaxing break. We'll be back!

I have stayed at this property twice before and have been happy. It's in a great location, walking distance to town and a hop, step and jump from the beautiful Apollo Bay beach. This time I was put in a 'garden room' (Room 11), on the ground floor, which I found to be not as nice as rooms at the front of the motel. It had a comfy king size bed, but there were no drawers or cupboards to store anything much. The bathroom had no cupboards. One of the reasons I had booked the motel was because I had wanted to watch an AFL game on Foxtel. The website advertised that the rooms had Foxtel. Unfortunately this was not the case - very disappointing. Also, when it rained, there was a very annoying dripping sound coming from the ceiling.

Was only there for the night but this place totally exceeded my expectations. Two minute walk to beach, five minute walk to restaurants and pubs. Really spacious and clean room. Would definitely come back.
