My wife and I were looking for somewhere nice to stay in the Queenscliff area and stumbled on Ruby’s. Great location. Host Noelle was very welcoming, and as we needed 3 nights she put us up for 1 night in the lower apartment then moved us upstairs to the larger apartment for the next 2 nights when it became available.
Both were excellent, and happy to recommend. (Understand she has another place called Ruby Red on the other side of town - we were a little confused at first).
Breakfast is not included although all facilities are there - we went to Cafe Gusto one morning and it was pretty good.
Queenscliff is an absolutely fabulous base to explore the Bellarine Peninsula and is the ferry terminal to go across to the Mornington Peninsula on the other side of Port Phillip Bay. It has lots of attractions in summer, and is a good place to start a trek along the Great Ocean Road.
However, in winter it is fairly quiet, and a number of restaurants and shops are closed in the early part of the week so we missed out on most of our initial choices, including 360Q and Oakdene winery - out of town. One we would definitely recommend was the Couta Boat Cafe, which seemed to be the only place that was genuinely open 7 nights, although others claimed to be. For example, there is a reasonable Chinese at the lower end of the main street where after we had walked down we found the ‘Open 7 days’ sign we had noted from the car had a small addition - “Closed Mondays”. We went back on Tuesday and it was pretty good.
