“Paradise!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Thank you for providing such a relaxing beautiful get away! We were blown away as soon as we drove in the drive. Arriving after hours was not an issue as our keys were waiting there for us. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, all facilities were brilliant. We will certainly be back and next time for longer!

Having grown up in Warrnambool we usually stay with family over Christmas and so we didn't quite know what to expect when booking this apartment. So, I'm very pleased to be able to report that we were very impressed and it exceeded all expectations. Warrnambool sure has come a long way in accommodation quality and service in the last few years. Sure the tired old motels are still there but the modern well appointed apartments and houses are now as good as you would find anywhere. The property is on a quiet street one down from the highway just outside the main city shopping blocks. Ten minutes and 3 blocks walk to the centre of town. Probably 30 minutes walk down to the beach. The apartment we had was compact but nicely appointed with the 2 bedrooms upstairs. The location was quiet with a small but nice poolside area. The free WiFi was a bonus. The keys were waiting for us when we arrived late. Christmas prices were high as you would expect from a resort town but were comparable with other available options. We wish we could have got more than 2 nights here, will remember next year to book earlier!

Tastefully furnished villa with outside jacuzzi in central location of Warrnambool. We chose the Gallery based on Wotif voucher we were given for a birthday, and at short notice chose to use it for a weekend away. We are so glad on our choice to stay at the Gallery.

The villa were furnished in Bali interiors but classy, with huge king size bed and full 42" TV in the bedroom. As the villa face a Main Street, noise could have been issue but double glazed windows ensured we were not disturbed. Bathroom has double spa, with oversized shower and excellent complimentary MOR amenities. Apartments feature full kitchen with dinng table, lounge and another 55" TV. The small courtyard provided outdoor seating and the jacuzzi, which was excellent to use!

Villa was very clean, and we enjoyed our visit so much we didn't leave after check in, deciding to eat in!

Excellent accommodation that would suit couples for romantic weekend. Highly recommended.

We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment. We arrived after reception hours, but, as mentioned in the confirmation email, the keys were ready for us.

We found everything to our satisfaction. The price of the room was a bit higher than others we've booked along the way from Melbourne to Adelaide, but considering the quality of the room, free wifi, and quiet location, yet near town centre, it's worth every penny. It's also located just opposite a supermarket, very convenient.

Just a note that Gallery Apartments is a self-catered, i.e. non-serviced, accomodation. It's only serviced once in 7-days, if u stay that long. So it may not be for everyone.

My new wife and I stayed for just one night as we were touring country Victoria on our honeymoon.
The room was fantastic. More than we could ask for.
Fantastic spa for two.
Close to lots of shops and great cafes.
Highly recommended.
We wished we had booked two nights it was that cosy.

We will be back.

The initial description given to us was wrong : it's not a 2-bedroom apartment. It's actually a 2-storey townhouse !! With excellent furnishings, fully-equipped and a small backyard.

From the moment you drive or walk through the entrance, it's like you've gone into an old English courtyard. The design was used to maximize the land area, so that even though the actual land space isn't that large, it was enough to have the pool and spa area, parking lots and the apartments themselves.

Our apartment (townhouse!) had 2 floors, with 2 bedrooms, each with its own attached bathroom and shower. This was bigger than the apartment I used to stay in ! The beds were firm and comforable, with 1 room having a queen-sized bed and the other 2 single beds. The dining area was large and the kitchen cupboards also held the washing machine and clothes dryer.

A supermarket (Aldi) was directly across the road and the CBD was a few blocks away to the east. There should have been wi-fi access but there was apparently some damage to the phone lines from a fire recently.

Thank you for telling us about your experience at the Gallery Apartments and we are glad you decided to stay with us.

We were delighted to read that you thought your stay with us was "Better Than Home", our Two Bedroom Apartments (townhouse) do have plenty of space for you to feel at home and totally enjoy your stay.

The Wi-Fi outage, was due to a large fire at our local Telstra Exchange, causing disruption to phone and internet lines for a few weeks, they have been madly working to restore the area and currently we have everything back to normal, we thank you for your understanding with this matter.

We do hope you enjoyed your trip to Australia and if you ever return we would love to welcome you back.

After spending six nights in a villa we heartily agree with previous reviews. Beautifully appointed, very comfortable, spacious and spotless, convenient CBD. Courtyard delightful, gardens and pool area immaculately maintained. The entire complex had an ambience of quality and is a credit to our three hosts. Lawton & Denise.
