The resort looks beautiful on the outside but dont let that fool you. There is no security or staff around after business hours. We got our "continental breakfast" from coles express and was delivered about 9am, literally was left on our doorstep. No room service and the onsite restaurant was closed on monday and tuesday. We had to drive for... More

Great Ocean Road Resort Lovely position at Anglesea and a quiet area to have a down-time escape. We actually enjoyed our stay in Anglesea but it would have been so much better if the resort paid more attention to details – especially the cleanliness of the rooms and tidiness of outdoor areas. We were booked in on a 2 day... More

Oh boy, where do I start? Positives: guy at reception on the first day was wonderfully friendly and helpful. Free wifi (we didn't have trouble like in some reviews). Couch was comfy. Place looked clean and tidy, and was spacious. Negatives: the bed is uncomfortable, the pillows (all two of them, no extras to be found) were terrible. Breakfast was... More

Don't waste your money. Our room was small and furnished cheaply and basic. Vanity unit was small domestic type with nowhere to put your toiletries out to use. Towel rail only big enough for 1 towel. No spare toilet roll and only 1 face-cloth. All tissues nearly gone. No glasses for water. Bed very basic and uncomfortable and cheap doona... More

My partner booked this resort for 2 nights through ourdeal.com as a romantic getaway for my birthday. First of all, the deal was meant to be for a spa suite but they had none available. We thought oh well, there's a spa on the premises so no biggie. Wrong. It was the middle of winter and the spa was only... More

Worst hotel I've ever been to! Looks nice from the outside but don't be fooled. You Have to pay $20 each for 15 minutes on the trampoline. Their rackets for tennis apparently got stolen so there's no way to play tennis. The so called HEATED pool isn't even heated. Heaps of things in the hotel are broken, including lamps, door... More

We booked this hotel through groupon and according to them this place was beautiful and very well located. The thing is that the location is not bad and the place from outside looks nice and beautiful but is a big trap. First according to groupon the hotel offers a continental breakfast for every day. We went to the reception the... More

Stayed two nights in a standard room after purchasing a voucher off a deals website! The two nights were not great from the moment we arrived! Parking was absolutely horrible and when you arrive in the dark it didn't make it any easier. The room was very basic which is fine but definitely needed an upgrade and general maintenance and...
