The accommodation is well located on the Great Ocean Road with the rooms having fantastic views of the ocean. You are a short hop to Apollo Bay, so not far from any services you may need. There is a nearby (non-swimming) beach which is a walkable distance away, but it would be safer to use a car to go to it. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was especially clean. Even places people do not often clean were spotless! The furniture was good, though the mattress did sink slightly to the centre. It was a cold weekend and the heating was exceptionally good. There were some negatives, however. We had issues on our journey and arrived later than planned, after the staff had gone home. We picked-up our key but found that most of the electricals in the room were not working (almost all power points were dead). An electrician came out the next day and spent some time fixing things. This happened again before we left. We woke on our final morning to find the fridge dead and everything in it was warm and had to be thrown out. The location is a mobile phone black spot, so we often had no signal or at least a very poor signal. The resort offers Wi-Fi, but it seems to be set-up for a normal home rather than shared by a series of apartments. It was OK when all the other guests had left (we stayed on one day longer than everyone else), but when more people were around it took several minutes so so much as load a single email.

Firstly, the rooms were great. But I felt deceived by the management booking here. We booked 3 nights in a 2 BR Apartment despite only needing 1 BR, purely because the website photos (including those shown on Booking.com and Agoda for the room we booked) showed living areas with sweeping ocean views on two external walls. What we got (and what most of the two Bedroom Apartments have) is one wall in the living room with windows, exactly the same as the photo on the website shown for the 1 BR Apartment. Admittedly, there was also ocean views from one of the Bedrooms, although not as good. The three criteria we had for booking here in the middle of Winter was ocean views, log fire or coonara heater (tick) and wifi. We knew we couldn't enjoy the outdoors (given the climate) so we brought books and intended to stream movies. They do have wifi - but it doesn't work. When I was lucky, I could click on a website, but I could never get enough wifi to skip through news articles, let alone stream a movie. Even my own mobile phone, which is with Telstra, didn't work most of the time , because the location seems to be in a black spot. However, the design of the Apartment was very good, it was spacious, the fire was great, the view was still very good, and it was comfortable. I just feel that customers try to make informed decisions investing our money on a holiday, and the website for this resort is misleading.

We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment for one night. The views were just great from the small balcony while we cooked using the BBQ. Very relaxing stay, warm and cozy inside, good heating and easy going staff. It is in a quiet location up the hill slightly from the main Great Ocean Road. If you come expecting to use Internet, then lower your expectations. The WiFi is almost non-existent and the mobile coverage to get data isn't available because of the mountain shadowing the resort. Not a major problem for us, but I did have to go outside and down to the main road to send a few emails from my phone.

15 minutes outside Apollo Bay, these apartments are small but very well equipped. Ours was more like a studio, with the bed on a mezzanine. Well equipped kitchen but the washer drier was not very effective. BBQ on balcony which was perfect after a week eating in restaurants. No restaurants within walking distance. Great to hear the crashing waves whilst lying in bed! Gas log burning effect stove was a very nice touch, as it was quite chilly late in the evening in mid March. Decent WiFi.

We booked this resort for a weekend away for our anniversary. It was a bit disappointing. On the plus side, it’s quiet and the view over the ocean is spectacular. The apartment was spacious and the kitchen was well equipped, the bed was very comfortable. On the minus side, it’s very dated, the tourist information was last updated in June 2011, the wifi was hopeless and there was almost no phone coverage, it’s a long way from Apollo Bay and a long way from a beach you can swim at.
