Spent a few days after New Year at this wonderfull resort. Shared a 2 bedroom apartment with friends and it had everything. Great staff, amenities, views and well priced. Would recommend to couples and families any time of the year as there is lots to see and do in Warrnambool.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the open sea.

Really nice location and we had a great view off our balcony. The check in was good and the breakfast is recommended...$20 for full brekkie at a help yourself buffet is good! The room was clean and comfy. We enjoyed our stay and liked the handy location too.

Room Tip: We had room 204B, it was good :)

We stayed in a lovely 3 bedroom appartment overlooking breakwater at this resort, which was lovely allot of stairs to the top bedroom (30) but once you were at top views of ocean were nice. Very clean appartment. The pool was a nice alternative to the beach. Their restuarant has great food and service. Would definately stay here again.

We booked here as a walk-in after our other accommodation was pitifully poor. The service was faultless, the price reasonable, and the location perfect. Two bedroom town house, well maintained, and very suitable for a family. The only negative was that it was the searing hot week of 40 plus temperatures, and there is not cooling/heating upstairs with the bedrooms. The split system downstairs would be perfectly fine in normal Victorian weather - this was just an aberration. Consequently, we spent the first night all sleeping downstairs on mattresses near the cooling. The following night was cooler, and we were all back in our own beds. Easy walk to beach and fantastic pool. Staff incredibly helpful and will definitely stay here again

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lady Bay Resort. It is in a great location - an easy walk to the beach and Lake Pertobe Park. Most people I think would drive into the central shopping area but it is possible to walk it for a fit person that likes a walk. Lake Pertobe Park is great for kids, lots of room to run around and play in with a mix of playground equipment, barbecues, a small maze, lake with ped-lo boats to hire and a flying fox.

We tried to hire bikes for all of us but there were no children's bikes to hire so if you're bringing your small people pack their bike/scooter as there's plenty of spots to ride around the resort, including a skate park adjacent that was very popular!

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment (number 10) overlooking the front carpark. Don't be put off by this because the view you get is mostly of Thunder Point across the road. I got lots of great sunset photos from our balcony. We found the apartment suited us well. The bed was comfortable and both rooms had large inbuilt wardrobes. Good quality doonas. Pleased to find a laundry and clothes horse! The kitchen had all the usual things you would need.

Note though that this apartment (as would some others I imagine) is accessed by a flight of stairs from the entry and then has another flight of stairs to the bedrooms and bathroom (there is a laundry and separate toilet downstairs). So if stairs would be worrying to you ask for an apartment on the ground floor.

Our daughter made good use of the pool, which was clean and well maintained. It's wasn't as large and luxurious as the resort webpage makes it look but no complaints. One addition that would be welcomed is some sort of a rail to make entry easier for older or more unstable guests. Some conditions make stepping down into a pool with no rail to grip on to impossible and for this reason my Mum was unable to take a swim, which was very disappointing. Apparently they are constructing a gym, which is due to be completed in February and this will be a great addition.

We ate mostly at the resort. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner (although breakfast isn't mentioned on their webpage which is a bit of an oversight I think). Breakfast buffet was ok, not huge but satisfactory with all the usual things. Lunch could do with some light and simple additions, perhaps just a good sandwich or simple salad buffet? This is particularly important because the resort is not so close to the main shopping area of Warrnambool so if you're just wanting something basic but not wanting to go into central area or make it yourself then there's nothing much available close by that's reasonably healthy. Dinners were things like crispy skinned salmon, risotto, Angus steak, lamb shoulder etc. The desserts seemed to us to be needing a revamp for Summer as a few of them seemed pretty heavy. We thought the dinner menu could do with the addition of a couple of good but simple choices; sometimes you just want a good hamburger, not a 'fancy' dish. All were done well and presented nicely. I must give credit to whoever is recruiting the restaurant staff - without exception they were efficient, friendly and extremely well presented.

I think Foxtel is becoming something generally expected, so that might be worth Lady Bay considering. Also, a second small TV in the main bedroom would be welcomed by many guests.

Overall we found the resort friendly, quiet and no fuss.

Room Tip: If stairs bother you, ask for a ground floor apartment. Don't be afraid to book a room that face...

This resort could not have done more to make us more welcome! From the moment we walked in, everyone went out of their way to welcome us. The room was stunning with a great view and very spacious. The food was superb!

The resort is VERY well situated - we loved it.

Thank you Lady Bay Resort for making our stay in Warrnambool such a memorable stay.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have beautiful views.

We were very spoilt prior to arriving at Lady Bay Resort as we had stayed at a five star country club resort in Victor Harbor. We travelled all day, so after seven hours plus in a very laden vehicle we were looking for utopia.
We didn't find it at Lady Bay Resort.
We had booked a 3 bedroom apartment, and were advised that it had a ground floor entrance layout and that the bedrooms were on the other two floors. This wasn't so and we had to trudge upstairs at 7.00pm at night to access our room.
Upon arrival at reception we must have 'disturbed' the receptionist as there was some disinterest in finishing up the phone call being taken.
WiFi was weak and not worth the trouble.
The balcony door lock was faulty, but it was too late to worry about, so we put up with it.
The apartments are lovely and I guess we had been spoilt by our previous nights accommodation, but we just weren't feeling anything special.
Close by there are possibly two function centres that were hosting events and we had the aftermath in the way of loud vehicles and rowdy guests coming and going. A little bit of alcohol and every one wanting to fight each other..... After they had gone, a couple of hours later another lot of well imbibed patrons were heard outside.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far away from venues conducting functions.
