We purchased Sandpiper Motel as an interesting, but very worn out, property in 2005. For the next year we almost completely rebuilt the motel, completely redesigning interiors and adding balconies and boardwalks with magnificent recycled timbers.
The architect on the project has a long standing passion for this coast and its history, so much of that is reflected in the use of large timbers for external structures and the combination of timbers with metal brackets, chains and ironwork may remind you of an era of sail.
Inside you will find entirely modern decor and services, including large flat screen TVs and free internet connection. The guest laundry is free.
Our commitment to the environment is everywhere, usually unseen. Storm water is captured and recycled to toilets and laundry. Water fittings are rated for maximum efficiency. All walls and roofs are effectively insulated, external surfaces shaded and our power supply uses variable metering to use electricity efficiently.
The motel is rated 4 Stars by AAA Tourism. Over 100 reviews from past guests on Tripadvisor also ranks Sandpiper 4 out of a possible 5 and ranks us in the top 3 hotels in Apollo Bay. All of Apollo Bay’s restaurants and pubs are within a 5 minute walk, and the beach is 100 metres.Tweet
