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! less
