Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
reasonably sized property; bit of drama with keys for rooms and the property. However, someone was always around to help us out
Stayed 4 nights in Dec 2019

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Our key card didnt work for the majority of our stay. We spent quite a bit of time having to call the main desk to get someone out to open the door for us. The key card would not unlock the internal rooms, so at one point we were locked out of our bedroom. Could nt close the door if noone was in the room. There was a very strong disgusting smell coming from one of the toilets, so we avoided using this and kept the door closed. Stove top lights didnt indicate the right element being used. No spare blankets. No face cloths, no shampoo or conditioner, very minimal kitchenware eg 1x pot, so there wasnt actually much benefit of having a kitchen. If we hadnt of encounted all of the above this would have been a nice place to stay. We chose to stay here over a motel because of the oven/stove top which we didnt benefit from.

We loved the location and ease of access to the freeway and nearby shops. The rooms were overly spacious and the living area more than big enough for all of us. The separate ensuites were great for the older kids and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking

Great self-contained units on Deakin Uni campus
The apartment was nice and clean, self contained unit with kitchen, and laundry facilities. I booked a 2 bedroom apartment was upgraded to a 3 bedroom. The living area was air conditioned, with ceiling fans in the bedroom. We propped the bedroom doors open all day so the bedrooms did not get too hot. The apartments are not serviced daily but that was not a problem for us. Parking was paid for by app or daily by machine by the residential services but you can only get the app with an Australian mobile number. Ideal if you want a space that you can cook in/ do your own laundry and be left to your own devices. I booked this accommodation as I had people to visit at the university but it is very close to all the sights along the Great Ocean Road.
