The 3 most important assets for a hotel are : 1) location 2) location and 3) location. If it wasn't for its location close to the magnificent 12 apostles this place wouldn't see any guests. On the parking lot of the 12 apostles starts a dirt road leading to this motel. It's well indicated with signs. Since it was already...

We booked this motel for one night because it was literally the only place we could find that still had a room available in the area which is crazy because I would think this place would book up before any of the others. Its the perfect location to visit the 12 Apostles because you are only a few minutes from...

This is the best place to stay if you want to see the apostles in different weather / light conditions .Its only 3K away up a good dirt road.,so you can revisit say afternoon /evening and following morning for just 1 nights stay! The accommodation is average but ok.The swimming pool is cold but nice if the weather is hot...

If you fancy to be away from hysterical mobs of selfie-obsessed tourists and close to the twelve apostles unique site, this place is a must-stay. After a hearty welcome of the owner, you'll enjoy the peace and quiet amid twittering birds. You may even watch some kangaroos grazing at dusk. Last but not least, the food was really tasty.

We thank you for your feed back. We are in natural surrounds and are only 3 kilometres from the Twelve Apostles and away from the madding crowds. Guests can often see Kangaroos, bird life and the very frequent sighting of Fred the Koala when staying here. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Very flexible owners and welcoming even after we reached late in the evening. Nice functional rooms for the night. We were driving from Melbourne to Adelaide. This was one of our stops enroute. It had air conditioning and good showers. The location is right as well.

To have your own well appointed cabin, literally 'off the beaten track', with absolute peace and tranquility yet 4kms from one of the busiest tourist attractions of the GOR was brilliant. Very clean, thoughtfully supplied with kitchenware and cooking gear. Linen spotless. Tremendous value, a gem for those who want and are of course he mind to do their own...

Position amazing, 3 Km strait from the 12 Apostles, convenient to jump to the Apostles early in the morning. we booked the appartment, it was a small cottage, with kitchen and BBQ on the balcony. I am sorry we did not go there with some steaks! Country view, during the night you can enjoy the stars, Very nice. Sorry, Madam,...

Our family of 4 stayed in one of the cabins for an extended family function. The cabin was clean and comfortable and while a little dated in decor was perfect for our needs (who needs modern all the time). The hosts were friendly and generous - nothing too much trouble. The location was perfect - not just for our event...

My friends and I stayed here for the weekend. My room was comfy and provided the basic amenities. The road to the place can be confusing as you have to enter the car park for the 12 Apostles and then have to drive down a dirt road. It has bbq facilities which we used.

Location is excellent if you like to explore 12 Apostles. But other than that, it is not worth the money as we paid too much for what we got. Bed is quite comfortable eventhough we found hair on it as well as on hairdryer. Kettle provided didn't work but the staff had to exchange it later. Cottage was small and...
