The place is really really nice. Perfect for anyone! The only thing I’d say is that our windows to our balcony were rattling really loudly al night but only because of the strong winds we had while we were here

Great place to stay close to town. Just disappointed that we couldn’t get a 1 hour extension on our check out. After running the half marathon I’m sure the staff could understand that being able to head back to the hotel and have a shower would be great. 11am check out is not unreasonable and I was disappointed that it wasn’t even a consideration to say yes just a straight up no....

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time to leave a comment.Your feedback are very valuable to us. We are apologise that you are disappointed about the early check out time. As you know the standard check out time is 10 am ( it is clear on our website) and given you an 1 hour spare time of 11 am is favourable on you. On busy times like Great Ocean Marathon 95% of the guests want to check in on the earlier s time etc . On the other hand, the housekeeping staffs are need to clean the rooms and need to finished on certain time frame in order to accommodate those guests who want to check- in on or before 2 pm. Again , thank you for your understanding and consideration. We tried our best to make our guests happy all the time. Still look forward to see you again next year.
