    Great Stay


    We booked this hotel without knowing anything about the area or the Motel other than some info we found on Trip Advisor. We went on a lark and chose this as our first night's stay on our trip across the Great Ocean Road. We were preasantly surprised at what we found. The location was great; right on the main road and across the sterat from the beach(we hear the crashing of the waves as we slept). The location allowed us to park our car and explore the town and food options on foot. The motel was very clean and the front desk clerk was incredibly friendly.

    Our room was a basic motel room with bed, TV, dresser, bathroom and kitchenette. In particular I liked that we had a kitchenette, it was nice to be able to keep drinks cold in the fridge as well as some brekafast items/snacks. The bed was very comfy and we had a wonderful night's sleep. The shower was a little small but it had good water pressure. The room had a ceiling fan and seperate heater/ac unit in the wall. We actually needed the heat on at night since the temperatures drop dramatically once the sun went down and in the morning since the air was still a bit cold from the night.

    All in all it was a good stay and if we are evry in the area again, we will use this motel.

    Unique Quality: I liked the kitchenette that had a nice sized mini fridge, stove and a full set of dishes/glassware. The location was perfect; shops/restuarants in walking distance and the beach right across the street.

Travel Tips for Apollo Bay

Skenes Creek

by leffe3

I suppose nothing is really 'off the beaten track' when it comes to the Great Ocean Rd, but a few kilometres before you come to Apollo Bay from Lorne/the east is Skenes Creek. Its little more than a centre for holiday homes, climbing away from the beach up the hillside. But the beach is one of the nicest in the area and seems to be the most popular with surfers.

It's also the spot where the Otway Ranges are fairly 'gentle', rolling down to meet the sea, providing undulating verdant fields and exposed hillsides, providing great (but arduous) walking tracks into the interior.

Apollo Bay, in the Otways and Great Ocean Road

"Under construction"

Apollo Bay is a favorite seaside town for many people living in my city of Ballarat. Many holidaymakers go back there year after year for their Christmas Holidays. It used to be more basic than now (many people took their caravans to the local caravan parks and oval). Now it's more of a trendy resort, with many more cafes and restaurants than ever before, but is still a pretty spot, especially with the green rolling hills behind the township and beach.
