Reception staff very welcoming and helpful, the cleaning staff are friendly and unobtrusive.The Room was clean and well fitted out. Being close to shops and opposite the beach, makes for some great walks. Our stay was very restfull and enjoyable.

Ideal location for a break before or after visiting 12 apostles. Near eateries and bakeries for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Staff was awesome, informed us immediately when my wife left her phone in the room. Enjoyed the indoor jacuzzi spa as well.

The inn is clean and the property is convenient. Great view for sunrise and sunset. The thing I like most is their hospitality. The front desk staff was great and guided us to what we needed to see. Koalas! Thank you again.

This was our last stop on the road before hitting the big city again and we were impressed. The lady at reception was very welcoming and gave us good advice on dining options in the town and where to visit. We got Room 7 at the rear, large airy and quiet and right next to the laundry.

Loved the Waterfront. We were there for the Great Ocean rd half marathon and could not have stayed in a better place in terms of location. Was great value for money, staff were very friendly. LOVED the shower (great pressure) and the beds were comfy. Cute beach side furnishings and overall a 5/5!! Will be back :-)
