The Dolphin Apartments - Apollo Bay

by Lorraine A (follow)
Apollo Bay is a lovely beachside town located along the Great Ocean Road. It's the perfect place for a family getaway, and at just under 3 hours' drive from Melbourne's CBD (if you take the inland route through Winchelsea), you can easily escape for a weekend away.



I recently spent a night in Apollo Bay at The Dolphin Apartments after being recommended to stay there by a colleague.

As luck would have it, I managed to secure the very last apartment available - a one bedroom, ground floor apartment.

As you can see by the photos, the apartment is very spacious and has everything and more that you could possibly need for a few nights away.



The bedroom had a comfortable king size bed, plenty of storage space in the mirror fronted wardrobe, a flat screen T.V, bedside lamps and a view out onto the little outdoor terrace area.

The kitchen is well appointed with a full size fridge, oven, hot plates, microwave, dishwasher, lots of storage space and all the pots, pans and utensils needed to cook simple meals.



The lounge area has a good sized couch, a flat screen LCD T.V with Austar and free in-house movies, a radio with iPod dock (I couldn't find a radio station other than talkback radio though), and a large coffee table with a visitor information folder on it.



In the bathroom there is a spa bath, a huge shower, soft - fluffy white towels, a hair dryer and the usual complimentary hotel toiletries.



There is a front loader washing machine, clothes dryer, iron, ironing board, outdoor clothes drying stand, outdoor dining table, reverse cycle heating and cooling and a safe.

Pros:
Friendly and informative staff.
Walking distance to everything - shops, information centre, playground, pier, beach and golf course.
It's very quiet at night and the room was dark once the lights were out.
Big room, comfortable bed and pillows.
Clean and well appointed.
Herald Sun newspaper delivered to the front door in the morning.
Family friendly 2 bedroom apartments.
Good onsite carparking.



Cons:
Very slow Wi-Fi (although free).
Toaster was broken.

Cost:
Varies depending on season and the type of apartment. The Dolphin Apartments website has a best rate guaranteed icon if you book direct.

Overall: The Dolphin Apartments get the big tick of approval from me. I will definitely be going back with the family for a relaxing seaside weekend away.
