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.

... in the morning drizzle. After escaping the city roughly and hour and a half we reached Torquay the beginning of what we thought was the great ocean road. As usual it wasn't very well sign posted so we just headed for the sea. Which being that it was the great OCEAN road it seemed logical. Turns out we was wrong and a dead end proved that. A few more u turns and wrong ways and we finally made it to the arch way sign over the ...
... and London Bridge. The cliffs along this section are made of yellow and white sandstone, which has been weathered by the tide and wind to make caves, gorges and pillars. All very pretty, especially with the white surfs around the bases. The Twelve Apostles (OK only 7 stacks are visible!), are such a big drawn, that the parks people have built an enormous car park and a reasonably impressive, but largely superfluous, visitors centre, ...
... It is amazing how many people can be squeezed into such a tiny space, with everyone being so uncomfortable and no one complains. I guess everyone is just really looking forward to getting to where they are going and just puts up with it. Geoff thought it interesting that we have so many people in such a small space and then isolate them with everyone glued to their individual screens with 100s of movies, music, games etc to choose ...
... it has an aluminium smelter employing 550, producing 350.000
tonnes of aluminium a year, most going to south Asia from the port in
Portland. There is also a large fishing industry with abalone,
crayfish, squid and trawling.
We walk up to the Lighthouse and along the coast a bit. The
lighthouse stands 32 metres and dates back to 1883.
... beautiful home. 2 floors, they live on the top floor and use the bottom for spare rooms. And you can see why, they have panoramic views of the coast and the surrounding hills, all the houses in this area just seem to poke out from the top of the bushes that engulf the hillsides. It turns out there had been a fire about 30 years ago that had wiped out most of the homes in this area, which is why all the houses look so new and all had been purpose built to take in the views.
