I booked this room at the last minute through a second party! I had not stayed at the Apollo International before thinking it would be noisey. However it wasn't! Quiet the contrary and an enjoyable quiet night was had. Clean, comfortable, modern and roomy. I'll be back!

Check in took a little while but the room was large, roomy and had a small balcony over looking a nice garden area. The bed was comfortable and...

Stayed here overnight on a business trip. From the start the staff were welcoming and friendly. Room was clean, nicely renovated bathroom and a big balcony. So nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the evening breeze. Room service was prompt and the food was delicious and well priced. The tandoori chicken with spiced chickpea and yogurt salad...

We stayed as a family of 4 adults and a 3 month old baby. Lovely surprise to find a spacious 2 bedroom family room, with a cot supplied for the baby. The room also has a small nook for coffee making and bathroom with bath. The motel looks to have been recently refurbished and the decor was simple but nicely...

We last stayed in 2015 and were very disappointed by the attitude of this hotel, post check-out . We are happy to say that this time our overnight Bed & Breakfast was great. The rooms are large, well appointed and well maintained. We ordered Room Service and had an early night in the comfy bed. Breakfast was a leisurely affair...

Very conveniently located to shopping centres, pleasant drive to foreshore. Good sized room and very comfy beds. Restaurant meal was excellent, breakfast variety good. Staff were fabulous!! Could use some bench space in bathroom for putting down items and no toilet lid - gross! (Maybe because of handicapped access??) Drinking glasses were not clean and we needed to wash them...

Pretty good value for money, Foods great, rooms are clean and large and I had a great view over the adjoining bushland, very relaxing having a glass of wine on the balcony. Restaurant has good food, and not your normal hotel style food. Bed comfortable, and although the gym is a little small, its ok .
