Some improvements needed for safety

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Oct 2022
We stayed in Unit 2, one of the front units.
I agree with all the positive aspects of the reviews I read, that it was well maintained, clean, well furnished and felt very homey and welcoming.
However the stairs that led from upstairs to downstairs had a sharp turn from bedroom to the top of the stairs while also going down a step or two and the problem was not that, it was that the handrail didn't reach all the way to the first step, it was short by quite a bit. This meant that you had to step down and turn down the stairs without a rail to hang onto - the rail didn't appear until the 3rd or so step, and I had to bend down to reach it, while descending. A small additional handrail on the stair bend would solve this problem.
We also failed to pay attention to the reviews about the noise at the front of the apartments, so failed to ask for an apartment at the back.
Big mistake. Double glazing would fix this problem easily.
We saw the owner/manager present on the property doing some sweeping etc from time to time but they didn't care to make eye contact or say good morning on any of the occasions, so it felt quite unfriendly which was at odds with the cosiness of the apartments.
I'd stay again if I could be assured of a rear apartment with safe handrails on the stairs.
Date of stay: August 2022
Room Tip: Don't ignore the advice to stay at a rear unit. Don't stay in Unit 2 if descending stairs...

Reviewed 24 March 2021 via mobile

We visited Warrnambool twice on a recent road trip-once each way ex Melbourne. The first stay was in a smaller “deluxe” one bed apartment and the 2nd stay was in a one bed “villa”. Both rooms had renovated bathrooms and comfortable facilities with kitchens adequate for cooking a small meal for 2 and washing machine and dryer. The villa had its own private courtyard, which was really lovely and a protected corner to dry washing outside. The complex is across the road from an Aldi and a coffee shop, around the corner from a Woolworths, some takeaways and a short walk to Coles and further eating options. It was lovely to hear the bells of the local church on Sunday morning (not too early, fortunately!)We were impressed at how quiet the rooms were as they are in solid historic facades with modern insides. There is air con/heating-neither of which we needed in March. My only caution to fellow travellers is the on-site parking. It is very “tight”. If you have a larger vehicle street parking out the front would be recommended.

We stayed 3 nights at The Gallery Apartments with daughter and fiance. It was exceptionally clean and provided all the amenities we needed. Comfy bed and lounge suite. Perfect quiet location to access restaurants and pubs. Audi just over road and good coffee shop within 50 metres.
Heated pool and BBQ area the also very well maintained and clean.
Defineately will stay again and will recommend to friends. Due to covid we needed to cancel one of our booked rooms which the owner, Brett was most helpful and refunded with no issues.

Gallery Apartments is Ultra Modern very clean and comfortable, the Spa is great to relax in we were in Unit 9 TV in the lounge and a smart TV in the bedroom. Great cooking facilities very easy to prepare your own food. Only drawback was that to get to the pool you had to go down the driveway into the street and then down the street to the rest of the units to get in.

When we called Gallery Apartments yesterday explaining that once again Melbourne was in lockdown and we would not be able to use our booking we fully expected to be told there could be no refund. After all, when we booked that was made clear on the website. However we were told we could have a full refund and are very grateful. We are now looking forward to being able to stay soon...🤞

Stayed here as part of our Ocean Road trip. We booked in the UK which was easily achieved. We were a little late so no receptionist but our key was by the reception. We had been allocated parking. We had a two bed apartment that was spacious, clean and well laid out. The bed was comfortable and the outdoor terrace a nice touch. All local amenities are within an easy walk. We would stay there again.
