Fantastic Sunset Friendly staff who brought our meal over on a tray and the breakfast too. Lovely Café on site. Great tour guides in Lighthouse Ideal for a one night stopover
Room felt quite damp. We were locked in at 6pm until someone told us how to get out! Miles away from anywhere if you want to go out for a meal etc.
Scenic views, coalas and kangooros on the way to the lighthouse. In plane nature. Tulas scones are delicouse.
Not really equipped for self catering. Restaurant closed in evening. Plates, glasses, mugs everything missing. No hairdryer, no plate to cook only a microwave and very small fridge. Too expensive for what you get.
The Attention of the Staff, The feeling of we want you here, and the location is outstanding.
There was nothing to not like.
the view the lighthouse gorgeous accomodation
location was terrific
fridge didnt work bed in 2nd bedroom was not made up despite booking 2 bedroom suite Someone came through door at one o'clock in the morning and turned on light waking us claiming to have booked our accommodation and claiming to have been looking for it for three hours
My family was amazed with the location of our accommodation. We could see the Otway Lighthouse through our bedroom window. The air was so fresh and my parents were always eager to rush out of the room to take a stroll in the surroundings.
The accommodation is quite pricey for 4 person. There is no sink in the room so we had to do our washing of plates in the restroom.
The location is stunning and it's great to have it almost to yourself once the park closes
Size of the room - very small 2 adults and one case fiilled it. Not being able to get in the room until 16.00 when check in advertised from 14.30 and then finding only 1 cup,no teabags or milk .Fortunately the discovery was made minutes before the cafe closed for the night.
Loved the location and the history of the place, people were helpful and friendly
Booked to stay for 2 nights, were not given what was stated in advertisement and stated on receipt, nobody seemed to really care even though i was told people had complained about this previously
I loved the silence at night. You get to experience a tiny piece of the isolation of the original lighthouse keeper. A good place for walkers and people loving a quiet time.The staff were all lovely genuinely friendly people who made us feel a part of their unique home and or workplace. The breakfast was fantastic as were the scones and cream.
The kitchenette in the Lighthouse keepers room was just a microwave and the fridge was tiny.
Location, history and privacy
The lighthouse and the remote location - everything was great once we got access. Comfy bed. Waking up and eating breakfast by lighthouse
Not enough info re arrival - no phone signal so didn't get msg. More info cd be on email. No window - no seaview - no cream tea on arrival - no breakfast :(
Piece and quiet, the wonderful views, great breakfast
Once the gate was closed at 5pm we had the grounds to ourself, and could enjoy the whole park. A member of staff stayed on site overnight.
When we booked we had confirmation of a room with a sofa and ocean view, when we arrived we were given a small room with one chair and a table and no view. The whole point of being at the lighthouse was to see the sea.
The staff are what really make Cape Otway special. From the moment you arrive, they are there to help & are so incredibly friendly. They are like a big happy family & you get to be apart of that. The food at the cafe was exceptional! Couldn't get enough!
The accommodation was maybe a little dated but was still cosy & comfortable.
The location was wonderful! We felt like we were at the other end of the earth, and I guess we were. We stayed in July (winter), but the heating worked well and the beds and bath were warm. I highly recommend a stay at this romantic location on the shipwreck coast! My only regret is that we should have realised how long it takes to drive along the winding Great Ocean Road. In hindsight, we should have stayed the previous night much closer (than Mt. Gambier) in order to get to Cape Otway in good time before it got dark at 5 p.m. Stay two nights if you can.
The floors had just been varnished, and the strong smell ended up giving us a headache by the following day.
Comfortable accommodation in a fantastic and historic location.
If ever in the way south or if friends are traveling, this was quite unique. Not for all, as it is very remote and after 5:30, it is just overnight guests and the groundskeeper. For us that was most amazing. They will fix dinner and bring to your cottage before they leave the tea house for the night. Food was quite good and great servioce to have it delivered and set up in room as we watched sunset from the lighthouse. The groundkeeper took us up the lighthouse at sunrise… wow. They have great breakfast and afternoon tea with the stay also. One of most unique, awesome places we have traveled.
being there, the wild weather and the walks
didn't get the type of room that we booked
Wonderful place, everything clean, conformation of the reservation recieved by keeper of the accomodation
A little bit confusing navigation concerning arrival details- gate clossed after 5 p.m.,difficulties with finding responsible personal. Breakfast announced in the conformation send per e-mail, but not served. Bit othervise - really beautiful place to stay!
to be able to stay overnight at a light house in such nice accommodations
Location Location Location, lovely surroundings.
A bit expensive.
You get the lighthouse without tourists in the evening. That's amazing especially with a nice sunset! People were very friendly!
The cottages show their age. It's pricey for the quality of the cottages but you don't pay for that only.
Having the chance to wander around after 5pm without anyone else around
Location was great. Staff were friendly and being able to wander around the lighthouse after dark and get some nice photos was good.
The rooms smelt musty and air conditioning would have been a bonus in the hot weather. Breakfast was lovely but could have been available earlier so we could get on the move to see the sights on the Great Ocean Road.
Having the chance to wander the precinct in virtual solitude in the evening and in the morning before breakfast was wonderful. We had a glorious sunset.
In spite of telephoned arrangements, we were locked out of the grounds upon arrival at 6.45pm. For 45 minutes we tried various means of accessing the site. There was no phone reception at the gate. when I got reception from a nearby hill and telephoned, my call went to an answer phone. Finally, my husband climbed a six foot gate to find the keeper. We were meant to have the King suite: "This house features a patio offering views over the southern ocean…" That is not what we were given. Our room was nice and clean, but our small porch faced backwards and had no views, of the ocean or otherwise. The supplier forgot to arrive with the eggs in the morning - we had a very nice frittata for breakfast, but clearly the management need to work on their communication systems! We had a pleasant stay, but we did NOT get what we payed for.
