    The location and aspect were excellent. All of the facilities were top notch. It was just a little unclear where the external bins were as they had been put out by the caretaker and the bbq was only a sunbeam electric with a damaged lid. This did not impact negatively on our stay and we would definitely choose to stay again.

    Good location across the road from the beach

    This is an excellent place to stay with a young family. There is a huge green lawn to play on and some of the cottages have play structures. It is fairly dated inside, with a pine cottage feel, but therefore no worries about having kids running about. The washing machine and drier worked well. It was pretty peaceful and quiet. The main downsides were it needs a really thorough clean, not the sort of ‘lick & polish’ it is currently getting. The fridge was old with the plastic yellowing and the door shelves missing. There were lots of decent frypans and saucepans but not a single baking tray for the oven. There was no dishwasher which was a bit surprising for the cost of this accommodation. Apollo Bay itself is a lovely town, close to bushwalks in the Otways and the rock pools just across the road, at the end of the beach, are rich with sea life.

    Pros: The location was great

    Cons: It needs refurbishing, the appliances are old and dated, the floor is in poor condition and it needs serious cleaning in the cupboards and drawers.
