Positive Reviews


Superb location

Many guests appreciate the easy access to Melbourne's central business district, as well as to the Great Ocean Road, which features activities such as koala watching, parachuting and surfing.

Well-equipped kitchens

Several guests say that the kitchens have plenty of cookware, dishware and utensils, and note that the dishwashers and fridges have a large capacity. Others add that the countertops are large, the sinks are deep, and there is ample space to prepare a feast for a large family.


Helpful and friendly service

Noisy and crowded

Others add that the barbecue area is often busy, and dislike that prior booking is required to reserve space.


Slow and intermittent Internet connection

A handful of guests dislike that the Internet connection is not high-speed, and note that the connection often drops. Others add that there is no Wi-Fi in the common areas, and the router is often offline.


Limited parking
