We booked the two bedroom apartment number 5 and were very happy.We were provided with the car parking, full kitchen supplies and amenities. The apartment is spacious and very bright because of the nature light (many glass holes in the rooftop) The receptionist - John is very friendly and helpful! I forgot the USB flash drive and he replied via e mail that he will post it to me (Sydney).
I did not notice any cons
great location,helpful staff,basic but good value
That it had a spa in the bathroom and breakfast was included.
Just we couldnt see the ocean but thats not the lodges fault
good location, lots of room, big communal area.
I t was private and manager was friendly. The room was clean and breakfast was good as you can help yourself. Very reasonably priced.
We had difficulty getting access to the office even though we arrived within the time limit.
Great value for money.
The couch - we couldn't really get comfortable on it.
very pleasant appearance, well kept, very clean, easy to find bed quite comfortable, all over we were very impressed with every thing. shower was fabulous, didn't have time for tv. but it was nicely appointed. heating was on when we came in late, and very efficient system.
very picky but kitchen cutlery draw needs a wipe out or new one. deal included breakfast but no instructions in unit as to how to get this deal???? as we checked in very late office was closed and key left in unit as given so no way of finding out by talking to anyone. manager needs to leave note in travel info package.
Very thin toilet roll
size of key ring. Ruined the look of my pleather spray on leggings
the location....Apollo Bay is amazing
as i work in housekeeping in a 4 star hotel i found the backpackers lodge to be lacking profoundly on the cleanliness of my room...as i walked on floors i stuck to them....hair on spare pillows in wardrobe....no guest towels in room....i found the manager to be arrogant.....guests should always be treated with respect.....i would not reccomend staying here to anyone
I liked the spacious unit we were provided with. It was very quiet with no traffic noises.Close to shops and eating outlets.
A very cute place good comfort quiet clean good bathroom:perfect
No reception! Hard To find it, no good answer with the phone no indication just nobody To present the place!
The location - it is handy to the CBD
The room that we were staying in needs a bit of done up. The kitchen is dirty - juice and sauce beside the rubbish bin and in the cupboard, which we have to clean up ourselves and nuts and crumb in the drawer - yuck! The information sheet in the room is out of date and filthy. It wasn't a pleasant stay for us at all.
We enjoyed the one bed room apartment and its facilities. Location was easy to find and close to beach, and grocery store which was lovely.
Poor customer service from the word go. We were given attitude when we arrived at 7pm, telling us that we were late when the check in times clearly state between 1430-2030. Very rude when we mistakenly thought check out was at 1030am and we were told to "Hurry up and get out". Then we were rudely accused of smoking in the room which was not the case. Before all this, I was considering becoming a return customer as I live and work in Melbourne - very disappointed.
Room was good for the price, big bath nice to share a bath with your partner after a long day of driving and sight seeing!
The guy servicing the hotel was a real tool, he expected us to know what he wanted and he was not even there during office hours! Had to call the number for him to come down, not impressed standing in the cold waiting for him to come, when he finally did come he was very rude about it all staring at us like we were dumb, not like i've ever stayed here before I don't know the routine. Laughable service.
