Comfort at Apollo Bay
Very friendly welcome to the Sandpiper and a receptionist who was full of information and advice on the local area. Very good for visitors and nice to have time devoted to us. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We got an upgrade and the small balcony was a nice touch. Good place for a quiet stay.

Easter break at Sandpiper Motel
The PROS the motel was close to the city centre and was an easy check in progress HOWEVER there were more CONS then Pros. CONS: - the room had a musky old smell like there had not been any airflow in the room for months. - the quality of the room was outdated. The room needed a new make-over with stains on the wall with touch ups but could been seen in the light. - the state of the bathroom was disgusting with the shower pressure so light couldn't even feel it and had to wait for 5 minutes for the hot water to come on. - the noise of the couple staying in the room above could be heard as the floor creaked and you could hear them talking. - the room looked completely different when I booked online in compared to seeing it in the flesh. I would quite embarrassed and disappointed and would not stay at Sandpiper Motel again.
