Stayed 2 nights and it was clean and quiet. However there needs to be improvement made on especially the items made available for continental breakfast and also some hygiene standards to be met (not having pre-opened coffee bags/having a basket for used towels etc). We stayed at the Riverside Unit, which was probably the last unit. The units sit in... More

We stayed here as two couples as we were after a base from which to do the Great Ocean Walk. We chose this property as it was ideally situated mid way along the walk and for this purpose we couldn't have done better. We stayed in the Riverview apartment which was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. There is a... More

We spent a whole week at the Great Ocean Walk Retreat and loved every minute! It was the perfect base for doing the whole walk as it is right in the middle. With Castle Cove a short stroll away, it is the perfect end point for one day of walking, and start for the next. The apartments are beautiful with... More

Fantastic well appointed luxury accommodation positioned to take in all that the Otways bushland has to offer, idyllic country vistas with the spectacular rugged coastline enticing you to get out and enjoy.

We stayed two wonderful nights in the Riverview Apartment and will definitely be back. The apartment is very well designed and appointed, extremely comfortable and the location is a perfect base from which to experience again the amazing beauty of the Otways. The beaches are spectacular, Castle Cove is a short walk and Johanna, surely one of the most beautiful... More

We enjoyed our four nights in the Riverview apartment which was our base whilst we walked several western sectors of the Great Ocean Walk. The apartment was very comfortable, warm and cosy despite the gale force winds and driving rain outside on several nights. A great place for groups with clever design allowing a variety of combinations of bedrooms and... More
