Advertised WiFi, but there wasn't any

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Apr 2024
We needed a 1 night stopover for 2 people. We wanted 2 rooms but had to settle for 1 with a double bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was rock hard.
The motel style room was dated but adequate. The catch/ lock on the bathroom door did not work.
The WiFi did not work! Which meant we had to travel into town to connect to the Internet to arrange ongoing travel arrangements.
The manager said he could get a signal in his house next door but it did not work in the rooms.
There was no apology or discount.
It's just as well it was too cold to go in the pool as it was dirty.

This was one of my favorite places to stay during our 3 week vacation in Australia. EVERYTHING was clean, accessible and exactly what anyone could want for a short or long stay. Bed was comfortable, linens fresh and good quality. Nice seating area inside and also on balcony. The balcony view across the field was spectacular at sunset, including kangaroos sightings evening & morning.
Thank you Dale we thoroughly enjoyed

Very basic accommodation. Rooms seen better days. Ok value for money. Pool and tennis courts good but didn't get to use them.
Located on busy road, noisy overnight. Not 2 bedroom chalet as advertised but 1 bedroom with QS bed, other beds in lounge room. Ensuite to master implies ensuite plus main bathroom. No, only one bathroom. Some newer furniture, some old furniture. Curtains in lounge/bedroom old and ill fitting. Needs a refurbish and redecorate. Definitely not 4 star, 3 star at best.

Had a wonderful stay at the View on Grossmans. We arrived later in the evening without a booking. The owners were super eager to accommodate us. The room was spacious and extremely clean, with a GORGEOUS view of the vivid green fields beyond the property. The beds were comfy and the blankets warm (perfect for the approaching winter temperatures!) The owners were incredibly kind to us. I would definitely stay again and will continue to recommend people to stay at this beautiful place!

Booked the room thru booking.com and I agree with previous reviews, it wasn’t easy to find even with Navman! It’s about a 3 to 5 min drive to restaurants and the main beach. The room is functional and the bed comfy with a good sized bathroom. There was no breakfast facility but I don’t think that was part of my booking anyway. The host was certainly not friendly but accommodating I guess. Not sure if I would stay here again given te other choices we saw closer in town.

Having booked a room at 'The View on Grossmans' at Torquay through Booking.com, we experienced some difficulty in locating the site even though our GPS device stated that "you have reached your destination" as we drove past slowly. A phone call to the host soon had us checking in but perhaps a more conspicuous sign at the front of the premises would be helpful, especially if arriving at night. Everything else we experienced at this place was good and we thoroughly enjoyed receiving good advice from host Dale, followed by a very pleasant evening. The facilities were generally superior to 'average', particularly the large bathroom, which I covet! The continental breakfast -from the fridge - was generous and enjoyed. The view of the surrounding rural countryside from our upstairs window was also valued. Highly recommended.
