Room & Suite (17)
Pool & Beach (2)


Under New Management July 2015! Skenes Creek Lodge Motel is situated on Victoria's iconic Great Ocean Road, just on the outskirts of Apollo Bay - only six minutes drive from the town centre, or just over two hours south-west of Melbourne's CBD. Our Great Ocean Road accommodation is conveniently positioned on the Otway Coast (between the legendary Surf Coast and the stunning Shipwreck Coast), and has spectacular panoramic views of the Southern Ocean and nearby Apollo Bay. Skenes Creek Lodge Motel features a peaceful garden setting by the beach, on a spacious property that lies between the rugged coastline of the Great Ocean Road, and the green foothills of the Otway Ranges. Joyce, your host at Skenes Creek Lodge Motel, takes pride in offering you clean and comfortable Great Ocean Road accommodation, along with excellent service, and a friendly welcoming atmosphere that makes you feel like a valued guest, not just another nameless traveller.

A beautiful place to stay. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff went above and beyond to ensure our 2 day stay was comfortable. Awesome front door views of the ocean. Will definitely be returning in the near future. 😀

25 members and partners of our Soft Tennis Group gathered at Skenes Creek Lodge for our fourth annual Christmas celebration. The sparkling sea on a summer's day matched the setting, the table decorations, pre-dinner drinks and the courteous attention. The pork and turkey roasts

There is always a choice We don’t force people to stay .. I don’t think we were advertising any bargin prices nor do we have a rating ... we are also less expensive than many other hotels in the area .. That being said .. We are not just about the rooms here it’s the property ... and the service.. you have space You have views The animals and birds And it’s peaceful & quiet We have a restaurant And it’s licensed Please next time don’t just take the first room you find look around for a room that suits your needs. Venture out during the week prices are cheaper!! All the other guests that weekend had an enjoyable stay Too bad you didn’t enjoy your stay .. Don’t forget to mention that most Melbourne hotels charge extra for parking and have no view to enjoy .. compare us with similar places for the same night .. in our area ... Thanks for your review....

Very friendly hosts, comfortable warm bed, great hot and powerful shower and the meals WOW! The best lamb chops ever. Falling asleep to the gentle sounds of the ocean with no traffic noise. Also plenty of parking for caravans, buses and trucks etc.
