“A bit of luxury at the end of a long day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2006

Based in Melbourne, we did a two day round trip to Port Fairy - out via Halls Gap, and back via the Great Ocean Road. We should have taken four days to do it justice, probably staying in Ararat/Halls Gap and Apollo Bay on the extra days.
We arrived at Merton Manor around 6pm; it was almost dark in August. The B&B is in a quiet residential part of Warrnambool, and a five minute taxi ride from the town centre. We were welcomed by Pamela, the owner, and shown to our suite which is in a purpose-built block across the small car park from the main house. It had three rooms one behind the other; a lounge with easy chairs, a TV and a fridge; leading through to a bedroom with large and very comfortable king-size bed; and finally an enormous bathroom including a large shower and a double spa. The accommodation is all to a high standard, including heating/air conditioning, port, and chocolates.
After a long day's driving, we were tempted to send out for a takeaway but, at Pamela's recommendation, we went to the Beach Babylon restaurant, which was also very good (run by a Frenchman and his Australian wife).
A cooked breakfast was served in the main house the following morning, with a good selection of help-yourself cold items and limitless coffee and toast.
