Agreed, the only great thing about this motel is the view, as the whole premises needs refurbishment.
Repairs to the ceiling in the bathroom was laughable. Light didn't work above the area where the fridge/kettle/toaster was kept. Toaster provided but no knives and plates. Wine glasses and corkscrew were provided on the table next to the window - where you can enjoy a glass whilst looking at the great view. The glasses were full of dust and the corkscrew was of such poor quality we broke two trying to open our bottle. The dirt/dust/crumbs under the lounge cusions was horrific (I removed to retrieve something dropped between the cushions). No sink plug provided in bathroom.
We were moved from a downstairs room to first floor. This was due to an air-conditioner being installed in the room we booked. We were not charged the extra $30 night for the 'better' room - just as well, as it wasn't much better. Staff were helpful but didn't speak much English.
I would not recommend or stay at this motel again.

Run down, inconvenient, TV and....
The only great thing about this motel is the view! We arrived to an ice cold room where the aircon didn't work and took ages to get moved to a room where the aircon worked - well kind of - it warmed the room but rattled, wheezed and clattered it's way through the night making sleep very hard - it also has such a bright blue light that the room was always lit. Add to this no picture on the TV, no microwave, a constantly dripping tap, an uncomfortable double bed, bedside lights not working, it was not the place to be prior to running the Great Ocean Road Marathon. The staff tried to be helpful but had no knowledge of how things worked and couldn't speak English. The whole premises is very run down and the steep stairs up to the unit are open to the elements so we got wet climbing the stairs.Although the motel is only one kilometer from town, there are no street lights, so walking back after dark was pretty dangerous.We spent as little time there as possible - and certainly not worth the AUD$760 it cost us for the weekend! A big disappointment and we won't be going back ever!

Needs refurbishment. Friendly ....
The staff / management couple in charge were extremely friendly and even carried our suitcases up to the room.
We stayed in room no.1 with the highest balcony. The room had a stunning view on the waterfront but needs much attention on the inside.
The most noticeable of which were:
- No bedlamps in second room.
- Bedside table busted.
- When the air con in the main room is turned on it is very noisy in the second room.
- Half the lights not working in the bathroom.
- One of the shower knobs loose and prone to falling off.
- Cheap brand toilet paper and toiletries (no body lotion).

Gorgeous view, clean and tidy
I stayed here on Monday the 9th April. Was a little concerned after I booked by the reviews here but I was pleasantly surprised. We had a ground floor room with a lovely view. Clean, comfortable beds, bathroom clean and fresh linen. It’s older and very basic but that is all we required for a one night stop over. We walked into town to swim at the beach and later for dinner. Great location, could hear the waves at night so ticked all the boxes for me. Thank you.

Nice Little Stay in Apollo Bay
I would recommend this place to anyone and I would stay here again. Yes It's very outdated, but it has amazing views and the staff are really friendly. And for good prices. It's about a 2 minute drive from the center of town
