We searched plenty of hotels for our romantic one year anniversary and ray ville on the Internet seemed the best. Penthouse suite and ocean views. When we arrived, the lady was friendly. But shocked when she told us where to put our rubbish in common area when leaving. There was no way we were paying 250 a night to empty... More

We stayed in a delux room over night and made the booking with Steve who was very helpful and nice. However it was a different story when I got to the reception it was unattended. And then this unfriendly woman (Rondha) comes along after I rang a mobile number which was on the sign on the door. She had no... More

This place looks a lot better on the website than it is, which can only leave guests disappointed. It may have been luxury when they were first built but not any more. I had the impression we would be next to the sea and had all facilities we needed in the studio like a washing machine. But that is not... More

This place is clean and well equipped with all we needed. The bathroom taps need a little maintenance as they don't turn off completely. Everything is find and the couple in reception were very friendly and helpful. It was good to get some recommendations of what is near by for food, sight seeing and golf.

These cottages are rather attractive but if you have a lot of luggage you may not want to carry it up the stairs. The cottages themselves were charming and comfortable. We were there in the cold of winter and it took a while to warm the cottage. The reception was not open the whole day we were there and there... More

Rooms were fairly clean but we found food stains in microwave. Lit our very own real fireplace with firewood for heating. That's a nice experience for city dwellers like myself. Quiet neighborhood and close proximity to beach. Probably lacks good options for dinner if you're not cooking.

I'll start with the positive. The bed was comfortable and I slept okay although the pillows were a little uncomfortable (I reverted to using my travel pillow). This apartment could be excellent if only it gets a proper clean and some maintenance done. The bathroom looks disgusting. The shower leaks everywhere and this has caused the tiles to become water...

Very knowledgeable and welcoming! Lovely people! Rayville is located only a short walk from the main street - perfect walk after a nice meal in one of the... More

Stayed two nights in this nice spot along the great ocean road and was totally satisfied. Due to some bad reviews I was a little wary but in my experience Rayville was great! Clean, spacious and friendly staff and on top of it all: a fireplace!
