This hotel is in a good location, about 300m from the sea. There's a lovely boardwalk along the beachfront.
The staff at the hotel were fantastic, we could ask anything and not feel like we were annoying them! Without exception they were all very friendly.
Our room was nice and spacious. I think the marketing that states that all rooms have sea-views is a bit of an exaggeration. In our room, if we stood on the balcony, we could see just a little bit of sea over top of the trees out on one corner. I'm sure there are other rooms though, that have just spectacular views.
There are geothermal mineral pools at the hotel, as they are situated on top of a geothermal acquifer. The pools are great but once again the marketing lacks a bit, as there is a cost involved of using the spa pools, which is $25 per person. If you were taking a family there, and didn't realise this, it could be an unexpectant big cost.
On the whole, the staff make this hotel... The rooms are fine, but just be aware of those couple of little things and you'll love it.

... Anyway, when we got to the Information Centre, we were told about a Show they put on every night which is described as a world class sound and laser show which tells the tale of the ship, the Loch Ard's demise and the miraculous survival of just two passengers, Tom Pearce and Eva Carmichael - AND if we give them more money, we will get a 2 course dinner beforehand! How could we resist?!!! I was quite excited as I thought I would take lots of photos ...
... turning out to be beautiful and sunny. I'm currently at Warrnambool again and this time I'm heading to Robe and staying the night. I have a casual 300 odd km's to go. Keen to get to Robe at a decent hour and have a good look around. The Sena headset is working a treat. Awesome value for money there ( think it was around $130 from memory) and I'm enjoying listening to music and also taking calls here and there. A subwoofer option would be good, but hey ya can't have ...
... being Sunday morning, so we went to the point and watched the surfers. Some of the waves here were massive. It was scary just watching them.
To save some time, we drove back along the highway in land. We stopped in a little town for lunch and watched some of the local cricket clubs game. It was sort of how I would picture baseball in small town USA.
We could not have asked for better weather all weekend. I had huge expectations ...
A big thank you goes out to the lovely lady at the Vue Grande Inn at Queenscliff who helpfully allowed me to offload a little parcel of things which won’t be needed until the next plane flight. With much gratitude, I left Queenscliff a little lighter. After brekky at Barwan Heads, it was onto Torquay and the G.O.R., (that’s Great Ocean Road for all you untraveled ones). Great weather and coastal ...
... are free to do whatever, in the wild. There were supposed to be koalas here but we couldn't see any on the first part of our walk. Back at the visitor centre we bought a coffee and sat out in the open to just watch and listen when we heard a ranger say that there was a koala in the trees in the picnic area. It took us a while but then we saw it. Oh so cute. We wandered around the picnic area and saw some more. I was really pleased with the shots from camera. I tried done with the ...
