This B & B is I think probably the best on the GOR. The rooms are large,very comfortable ( two armchairs-often overlooked item),large clean,well equipped bathroom. Furnished beautifully and a little quirky touches in places. The hosts and staff are helpful and knowledgeable about the local area,travelling times,distances etc. Included in the price is a very good breakfast:- cereals,juices,coffee,tea,fresh fruit,bacon...

They served a scrumptious breakfast that filled us up. Our first night on the Great Ocean Road ended here and we loved it. If we ever return to Australia this place...

We travelled from Adelaide to Melbourne and stayed in a variety of places. This was the best! Wonderful room with bath in the bedroom - delightful after no bath in most places. Immaculate bedroom and great breakfast too.

We were welcomed in the car park by Duncan, the Motel's owner. Duncan and his wife, were both very friendly. The room was very modern and spotlessly clean. In the morning we enjoyed a very nice breakfast. We highly recommend this motel.

Stayed one night in the Bridges (North East) Room which has views towards the bay and along the coast. Would agree with the positive reviews of the accommodation. One block away from the main street with restaurants and shops. An easy walk when the weather is good or a short drive if it isn't. Friendly and helpful hosts Anna and...

Our party (2 couples) stayed here for two nights in April as part of our journey along the Great Ocean Road. We had two terrace rooms and were very impressed indeed. The rooms were spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and were very well equipped, including large flat screen TVs, satellite tv and a DVD player. There were also some board...

Excellent stop over at Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road. Great help from Duncan and staff, offering suggestions of things to do in the area while we were there. Good full breakfast. Modern boutique style room. More money wouldn't buy more comfort!
