“Good location, ordinary views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

We booked an apartment through The Moorings website. There was only one two bedroom apartment left available, which probably should have been a clue. When we arrived the rather glum apartment manager greeted me with the words 'this apartment has the worst views in the whole complex'.....not a great start! The apartment itself was quite nice and roomy, but the only views were of the shops across the road. Not the water views we had hoped for.
There was a small courtyard at the back of the apartment which backed onto the tennis court. It had an electric barbecue.
The complex provided towels for the pools (indoor and outdoor) and provided tennis racquets and balls for the tennis court. It is located in the centre of the little town, so very convenient.
We did enjoy staying here but I would look more closely in future at the location of our apartment in the complex. Out of 39 apartments I counted only about 10 with water views, and the others had pool or road views.
There was a direct path to the mooring area for boats and we went on a two hour boat trip which was enjoyable.

Room Tip: Check on the views that the room has before confirming your booking.

Thank you kellypippin for your review and we are pleased that you enjoyed staying at The Moorings. Our preference is not to respond to reviews but we do so in this instance to correct factual error contained therein.

Ot the 39 apartments at The Moorings 28 are either waterfront or excellent waterview. The apartment chosen by kellypippin was at the lower end of the scale, near the village shops and priced acordingly.

A location schematic is provided on the website to assist guests making online bookings and a photograph of actual view is provided as view #1 in each accommodation category.

We stayed at the Moorings on 19th & 20th December 2011, in a Lake King - 1 bedroom spa suite.

The apartment itself was as described on their website - Open plan lounge & well equiped diner with plenty of space, opening out onto a private balcony over looking the lake. Lounge area had sofas and coffe table and modern flat screen TV, with separate dining table and chairs. Separate bedroom with Queen bed, ample wardrobe space, dresser, flat screen TV, and complimentary dressing robes. The bed and duvet were very comfortable. The modern on-suite bathroom, had wc, shower, sink and large spa bath (with plenty of room for 2!). The apartment in general was very clean and well maintained, with modern decor.

The pool area was great, and all facilities were available as listed on their website. The staff were very helpful and recommended some nice places to eat, and places to visit during our short stay.

A short drive from the Princes Highway, meant Metung was a great place to stop off on our travels down the coast from Sydney on our way South to Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road.

I'd definately recommend the Moorings at Metung.

We stayed here in July of this year and couldn't fault it. The resort was undergoing renovations of its pool area so we were able to get an incredible rate - and we certainly didnt need the pool in the middle of winter! Our room looked directly out over the water and was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The manager was super friendly and helpful and Metung itself is a superb little town. Once you are at the Moorings you are within walking distance to some fantastic restaurants and cafes. We were there when the market was held on the village green and were lucky enough to get some great locally made chocolates and fudge.
The Moorings at Metung is a really lovely place to stay, we will definately return.

Room Tip: Get the water view - you won't be disappointed!

We stayed again at The Moorings last weekend in a Superior (fully renovated) Bancroft Bay apartment. The apartment was fantasic but the renovated pool area was the unexpected highlight of the trip. The kids loved the new indoor and out-door pool area.
In addition to the undercover parking, tennis court, marina and location it was a place for the whole family.
At The Moorings you can walk to all amenaties in Metung,I think making the resort the best place to stay in town.

The staff where all friendly and helpful no matter what our request.

I have stayed at other places in Metung that have sub-standard or not equivelent faciliies as well as being not in the centre of town so for me The Moorings and my family is the only place to stay.

Room Tip: Chose a fully renovated 2 or 3 bedroom apartment facing Bancroft Bay, Great views......
