loved the wood fire loved the easy of getting around loved the entertaining deck out front
Frequent visitors to Apollo Bay (approx. 4 times a year) Probably the worst bed/mattress I have ever slept on. Solely on that we will not book there again
Great location, comfortable unit, wonderful staff, an ideal place for a romantic getaway. Will definitely be back again and for a little longer than an overnight stay next time.
The wood heater needed a little work and cleaning.
The location and aspect of this property is brilliant. Beds were great and we havent had an electric blanket since we were kids.
Unattended reception. Managers were in Melbourne.Did not see them at all. Penthouse needs some work eg blinds not working, peeling paint, needs a good and thorough clean. Some cleaning aspects eg crumbs still around toaster need addressing. The whole property needs a bit of a spit and polish with some attention paid to the little details
Tiles in bathroom lose and grout discoloured. Fireplace smokes as chimney needed cleaning out.
Self check out was a good system
-staff were really helpful and lovely - use of golf clubs for free
-value for money -high winds the whole building moves and shakes -very cold in the bedrooms
Being able to walk to the Main Street and restaurants.
The shower was terrible. Half the lights didn't work. The decor is very dated.
Superb location whilst travelling the Great Ocean Road and excellent value. To sit on the balcony in the morning with a clear view of the ocean was a real treat. Very caring owners who take great pride in their property and provide a friendly and professional service.
Very comfortable and very clean , loved the fireplace had mash mellows ;)
It was all good ;)
Great place to stay. Stuff very friendly. We booked a penthouse and this was just perfect.
Lovely location with a good view of partial sea/coast from our deck. Nice living area upstairs.
We were asked to sign a form saying we had emptied our rubbish bins outside, washed the dishes and cleaned the tub if the bath was used - never have we been asked to do the housekeeping in a hotel type accommodation before! The tea towels smelled bad and felt greasy. Could not get the heaters to work at all. We later found much better accommodation where we did not have to do the cleaning and at a lower cost! The management was changing the next day after we left so maybe that has something to do with it. Don't think I would choose to stay here again as the welcome could have been much better without forms to sign about cleaning!
Boat house design
No toilet on second floor in house number 4.
We were travelling with our Queensland friends and we had two one bedroom units. Both units were nice and roomy with everything we required for our stay. We had a cold, wet windy day and our Queensland friends were warm and cosy by the wood heater, as were we. The area was quiet, no passing traffic, And only a stones throw from the beach.
The bathroom was looking tired. Broken tiles on the floor and a broken towel rail. The wifi in our room (unit facing street) was ok but proved very slow in the rear unit.
Just used the Rayville Boat House as an overnight stop whilst travelling the Great Ocean Road. Fab property - really quaint but had everything we needed for our short stay. Very comfortable beds, a great bathroom and overall spacious.
I must admit that with a name like "Boat House", I was expecting a property with a sea view, however this was not the case but all facilities were all on the doorstep including the sea-front. Some furniture in the upper twin bedded room would have been a bonus - a wardrobe / dressing table or even a desk!
Location, wifi, electric blanket
Lack of information about local restaurants.
The penthouse could be great but it needed a decent springclean. every surface was dusty and the drawers also needed cleaning. through bathroom needs tiles replacing, the shower leaks everywhere.
Just one bathroom for six guests
The staff was helpful and responsive to a problem with a window. The unit was attractive and cozy on rainy night.
We felt it was expensive for only two people. The units was intended for at least four. We booked at the last minute. Availability elsewhere was limited, so we took the room. There was no view to speak of.
Nice and helpful hosts, comfy room and fairly good value
Needs fly screens. The flys were to much to bear
Nice villa with every thing there. Located relatively close to the sea and the village.Very quiet location.
Not having a balcony that had a sea view when most of the units were empty.
Location was excellect. Great friendly service
My girlfriend and I stayed at Rayville Boat Houses for a weekend and wished it could have been longer! Very clean, friendly staff and so close to the shops/beach.
Excellent proximity to town and golf course. Pleasant staff/managers.
The cracks in the tiles, a massive leak from the shower through the tiles onto the floor. I also think it needs a second bathroom with 3 adult couples. There was a huge drain leak outside which appeared a health hazard to us.
Sandra & Oliver were tireless workers on call to customers 24/7. I had stayed previously and noticed the difference they had made- all positive! I recommend this place as one of my Great Ocean Road favourites! Congrats guys on running a great place.
the fire, the location, the original concept of the boat houses was quite charming
the place is unloved, no external maintenance done, garden full of weeds & dying plants, cobwebs everywhere, dirty windows, poor quality tea towels & towels, oven did not work, no heating in bathroom - no globe fitted, blown light globe in living area
