“Wonderful place, and great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2011

We spent one night at Banyan Place at the end of our drive on the Great Ocean Road last month.

We booked unit 4, which was very nice. The unit consists a very new kitchen, big living space, queen size bed, 2 balconies and a large bathroom consists of corner spa, shower, toilet, washing machine, and cloth dryer. Pretty much everything listed on their website.

Since there is no staff on site, the check in was done according to the instructions of the text message we received from them in the afternoon. It was very easy. The contact person of the place was very responsive to our queries relating the usage of the facilities on the property. eg. the power switch for the spa is the middle one on the powerboard under the mirror in the bathroom, and the the power switch for the microwave is the middle one on the power board in the kitchen. Also there are heaps of information of the property and nearby attractions in the kitchen drawers. And there is free internet connection in the room!

The location of the place is very good. A 5 minute walk would take you to where restaurants are. We had Thai for dinner, and bakery for breakfast. The maritime museum is very nice, and locates just all round the corner.

Overall we are very impressed by the standard and location of this place. We wished we had stayed longer to check out more of the attractions that Warrnambool have to offer. We would love to stay at Banyan Place again next time.

Having stayed in Warrnambool a few times, Banyan Place is by far the place to stay for comfort and value for money. Spacious and clean, with off street parking and great facilities, and the most comfortable beds. It is in a great location close to all that Liebig St has to offer. Great service from Glenda, who accommodated our later than expected arrival. Recommended.

I booked Banyan Place a bit last minute for a trip from Melbourne down the GOR to Warnambool with my fiance and parents. The two bedroom setup was great and the recliners in the lounge were fantastic for putting our feet up after a long drive and yummy dinner (Proudfoots on the River is great!). It's close to the town centre and a short walk from the beach. Would make a great spot to cozy up for a romantic weekend with the spa bath and double recliner set up. We didn't run into the noise issues some others seemed to have. Free internet was nice for my parents to catch up emailing home about their trip.

Thanks for Booking Unit 6a - our only 2 bedroom. Glad you were able to recline those sore feet. Proudfoots on the River is great! your right, sometimes hard to find but worth it when you are there, they also let you fish of there whilst enjoying a meal. Thanks your comment about "romantic weekend with the spa bath and double recliner set up". And glad to hear you slept well in 6a and didn't have any noise issues one other guest had. Thanks again, Glenda.

Loved it. Nicely furnished, yet cosy. Felt like staying in a B & B without the hassle of staying in someone's house. Glenda was lovely. Planning on staying here next trip as finally found somewhere comfortable in WARRNAMBOOL.

Thanks for your comment - you are just as lovely. And good news we have just refurbished units 3 and 4, they are now themed. So Unit 3 has taken on the Parisian Theme - so all about Paris in there. And unit 4 has taken on an Asian Theme, l rub the Buddha's belly when l go in, :-0)

Don't forget the Kids Festival "Fun 4 Kids" is on every year 1st week of the school holidays in June.

See you soon - Glenda

Booked via wotif.com at short notice in the holiday period when all good hotels in Lorne and Apollo Bay were full. Warnambool is a nice town with some restuarants we recomend Brown Rice for nice Thai food. The apartments had good facilities with a washing machine and dryer, big tv, balconies and comfy charis. Our only problems were the load music from the nearby hotel that stop[ed at 10pm but more frustrating was the family in the apartment next door who were stomping around at 7.30am and due to the paper thin walls we could hear every word they said.. We did wash and dry our clothes at 9.30pm the next evening ourselves though.....

Thanks for your review, and yes Warrnambool is a nice town with great restaurants and you are right Brown Grain is the best Thai food l have ever tasted, highly recommend the Laksa.

Again you are right the Whalers hotel which has meals, TAB, Plasmas for Footy and bands every Friday and Saturday night, is within walking distance only one short block away as you could hear. Glad the abided by the 10pm rule and turned music down so you could sleep. Sorry the guests were noisy next door. Cheers Glenda.

The room was nice and clean.

However the walls were paper thin and we spent most of the night, not to mention the early morning awake, tearing our hair out! I would have thought for that amount of money peace and quiet (especially in terms of other guests) would be a priority. Also the water pressure in the shower was non existent.

The experience was disappointing.

The room you booked was an interconnecting room - which occasionally cause a problem if noisy guests are below - maybe you could try apartments 3 and 4 which were selected by Prime TV " Coxy's Big Break in 2009 and again in 2010" These apartments are not interconnecting.

Also the hot water service has been replaced with a bigger thumper system.

We appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we can serve our guests better.
