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.

Our first day ended in Warrnambool. It was dark when we arrived. It seems like it was a port town in its peak. It is now a nice little city. We didn't explore much beyond the main road. We got take-away and checked into a nice hotel. We were both exhausted and had a great sleep on the King sized bed.
The next morning, we started the day with a drive to Port Fairy which is the next town along. It was ...
... take them to lunch in Terang and have a look around.
Have had a very enjoyable day very nice lunch with Cheryl and Joe, then went for a walk to see the old SEC building beautiful architecture which originally had shops in front but unfortunately all empty like so many other country towns said goodbye to Cheryl and Joe now getting ready to return to reality tomorrow and out of holiday mode looking forward to our next getaway sometime in the New Year.
... Great Ocean Road.
Mount Gambier is about a 3 hour drive from Meningie – and a fairly boring drive! This part of South Australia is quite flat and you can see land for miles and miles – mostly brown and dry, with the odd field of cows and many signs warning of kangaroos – but no live ones! I find it amazing that you drive for about an hour or so before you see another house or small town (by town I mean about 10 houses ...
... br> We then proceeded to Princetown where we had a great breckie in a local cafe. Princetown only has about 4 properties one is the cafe, there is a campsite and a couple of farm type buildings. Makes Princetown on Dartmoor, Devon , UK look pretty glamorous.
Afterwards we went to look at the Bay of Martyrs and then the Bay of Islands. ...
... that decision was made so I didn't have to think about it anymore. Hopefully I'd be fully recovered tomorrow and be in a better position to plan. (And looking back on it, there was no way at all I could have ridden that day!) I spent the rest of the afternoon lying in the tent trying to rest. Tents are not the best places to be when you're feeling ill, they are not well insulated so the temperature goes all over the place. I spent time either being very hot in the ...
