“Lovely apartment, great location, walk to adventure playground.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

These apartments are very roomy, modern, and spacious. Service is great, and owners are happy to help. We stayed with our 2 children and young baby. All beds and cots were supplied with linen.
It's in a great location, short walk to the shops, and also to the adventure playground which is great for the kids. Loved it, will definately recommend, and we will be returning !

Recently stayed for six nights in merri one, a great choice to make your base and explore this beautiful part of Australia. Excellent accomodation from the bedrooms to the bathrooms and kitchen with all the essentials included so you can cook if you wish to take a break from dining out.
If staying at Merri one be prepared for stairs but hey, who cares when you have palatial bedrooms at the top and all you can need in the rest of the apartments.Sarah the manager is an absolute delight providing warms nd friendly advice. Stay here at least for one or two nights to get a taste of practical luxury without the excessive cost of a Sydney hotel.

Room Tip: Merri one or merri two are my picks

My wife & I recently stayed here for 3 nights & greatly enjoyed the experience. Our 2-storey apartment faced Gibson rather than Merri Street, & was very modern, spacious & clean. The lower floor was one large dining/kitchen/living room, with a balcony connected by sliding doors at each end. Furnishings are very modern & the 2- & 3-seater red leather couches, in particular, are very comfortable

The kitchen is quite luxurious with a large breakfast bench, dark stone bench tops & glossy white doors & drawers. It was well equipped with bar stools, dishwasher, microwave, gas oven & hot plates & plenty of crockery & cutlery. The dining room boasts a large table with seating for 6

Upstairs, there is a very large master bedroom with ensuite, complete with large spa bath, & a door opening onto a tiny balcony. The second bathroom, which contains a clothes dryer, is directly accessible from both the hallway & from the second bedroom. The latter is also quite spacious & both bedrooms have sufficient wardrobe hanging & storage space

The king size master bed & pillow combination is very comfortable & the bed has both a doona & electric blanket although the doona alone is sufficiently warm so as to use the latter merely to take the chill off the bedding

There are 3 flatscreen TVs in the apartment; a large one in the living room, a smaller one in the master bedroom & a smaller one again in the ensuite. Heating, which is sufficient for the apartment, is by way of a reverse cycle unit on the wall opposite the kitchen & a smaller unit on the wall of the master bedroom

The units are well-placed being across the road from Flagstaff Hill & a 5-10 minute walk to the main shopping area of Warrnambool. The units were very quiet, although there may have been several vacant units during our stay. Parking, as others have noted, is a bit challenging but not unacceptably so

The staff we saw during our stay were all friendly & helpful, especially Sarah

We had 4 issues with the apartment, which in no way detracted from our stay, viz.
1. when going down to the lower level at night in the dark, the light switch for the stairs is scarily close to the top stair. A switch immediately outside each bedroom door would be a safer option;
2. each apartment has its own entrance from the garage which, in the case of our apartment, was a right-angle set of stairs to the rear door opening into the dining area. Halfway up the stairs is a locked, metal-framed glass door that looks out on a narrow strip between the rear deck of the apartment & the dividing fence with the neighbouring property. This strip was totally overgrown with what seemed to be largely knee-high grass & weeds. With some work & minor ongoing maintenance it would become a much more pleasant introduction to the apartment;
3. the kitchen was missing any sort of microwaveable crockery, which would have been very useful, &
4. the only toliets are upstairs.

Room Tip: Apartments facing Gibson Street receive less street noise than those on Merri Road but are above the...

We stayed for three nights in this gorgeous spacious apartment. Very clean, very well equipped with everything. Washing machine in car park but dryer in bathroom. Yes it's true the car park is tight if you have a 4WD but backing in works well and made life a lot easier. Location is fairly quiet although the refuse trucks did wake us up on Sunday night as we were in bed at 10pm and they came after that and made a fair old noise but that's not the fault of the accommodation just an odd time for rubbish collection. The apartment is huge downstairs so we needed to keep the aircon on to keep the place warm as it was a cold spell. The king bed is heavenly a BIG BIG plus, there is nothing quite as wonderful as a good nights sleep and this place gets top marks for the bed. Overall a great place to stay and we would definitely stay here again. I would have given 5 stars if the TV in the main room had been a little bigger it was lost in the room and hard to hear without turning right up which we wouldn't do in case of disturbing neighbours. It's a fairly small TV so we had to pull a couple of dinner chairs up closer to watch. However there are three TV's and one in the bathroom which the kids thought was wonderful whilst having a bath.

Stayed here for one night as part of our Great Ocean Road trip, and I wish we had stayed longer. The apartment is clean, light, modern and spacious and has everything you need. The king size bed is extremely comfortable. Location is ideal, only being a short walk to the restaurant/cafe strip and about as close to the water as you can get (although it's still a fair walk). Definitely consider this property, especially if you have a larger group as there is plenty of space.

3 Adults and 2 kids, we stayed here for 3 nights and I picked this stay from the reviews from TripAdvisor. The apartment was great, unit 1, 3 levels, top level is the main bedroom with king size bed and spa and a sitting area to watch tv or read a book, other rooms are on the ground floor, with shower and toilets. The third bed was a sofa bed, not very comfortable had to swap beds to make it fair on everyone staying.

Very modern looking apartment, with TV's in all the bedrooms, wi-fi internet but not very fast, nice kitchen, across the road from Flagstaff Hill, short drive to the beach and Lake Pertobe (actually short walking distance but the walk back up the hill can be tiresome).

The only downfall was the cutlery smelt or maybe I should say the sponges used to wash and wipe down the cutlery and tables smelt, I had to buy my own chux wipes :) If you are after a view of the ocean, apartment 1 is not it, as there is no balcony facing the front of the apartment, apartment 2 has a balcony but still i do not know if you would have a good view of the ocean. The underground parking is very tight, if you have a 4WD it is going to be difficult to park.

Besides those small issues, we absolutely enjoyed our stay and definitely would recommend.

Ann B, Manager at 104 on Merri Apartments, responded to this review, January 29, 2013
Thank you for taking the time to give your considered appraisal for ‘Merri 1’. We too think that the apartments are great. We don’t advertise sea views, as we are not directly adjacent, although we can catch a glimpse from various points. The balcony in ‘Merri 2’ does provide an outdoor vantage point to catch views of the coast, but other glimpses are more from particular windows facing the east.

We are actually really disappointed for you that you had the issue with the cutlery/chux etc. Thankyou for your feedback with this, as we had particularly appointed one cleaner to specialize with the kitchens/pantry/cutlery & crockery drawers etc.

Some of your other issues are not so easily remedied, e.g. the tight fit in the carpark, however we acknowledge them and also thank you for your review which would be helpful for future guests.

And last, but not least, we’re glad that you would choose to stay with us again.

Our kindest regards,

What can I say? 104 on Merri appartments are stunning! I have stayed at several appartments and hotels in Warrnambool as we are often visiting family and this would have to be my favourite for a number of reasons. First off the appartment was stylish, spacious and very modern. There is plenty of room to fit two couples with kids if needs be. The master bedroom has a gorgeous spa and massive walk in wardrobe. The second bedroom and bathroom are also spacious. Downstairs the kitchen is massive and well equipeed as well is the lounge. The location is perfect too, opposite Flagstaff Hill, around a 5 minute walk to town and 10 minutes to the beach and Lake Pertobe. Honestly, I didn't want to leave this place and look forward to my next stay! However, be warned they are quite pricey but a good option for a family or 2 families travelling together who still want a bit of privacy and not get underneath eachothers toes.

Room Tip: An extra $50 per night will get you an ocean view apprtment, well worth it if you are only staying f...
