Before leaving the US, we booked a room here for the Great Ocean Road stopover for one evening. We enjoyed this place so much that we ended up staying an extra night. It was the most relaxing part of our entire trip.
Booked the Penthouse and had no idea what to do with all the room. It was HUGE (and just the two of us), but felt great to have so much space after the smaller hotel rooms we had stayed in. A family (or two, even) would be very comfortable here. There are two large levels. The view is beautiful. It is worth it to wake up early and catch the sunrise.
There is a grocery nearby, and we picked up salami, stuffed peppers, olives, cheese, and wine and enjoyed it on the very large and private rooftop deck. Imagine our surprise when wild cockatoos suddenly surrounded us.... We broke off some of our bread to feed them, and eventually they were even landing right on our arm! This made for some fun photos and memories. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, etc. It was nice to cook our own breakfast after all the dining out. This is not a kitchenette, but a decent sized full kitchen. There were also a washer and dryer. Handy to do our vacation laundry and have fresh things mid trip. A soak in the jacuzzi while looking at the ocean was most relaxing; sleeping with the doors open made for a very good sleep.
We enjoyed walking around the small town and browsing all of the neat shops. A few miles away at Aireys Inlet there are horseback rides on the beach for rent. So much too do nearby, and so charming. If we ever go back we will plan a much longer stay here.
