Bought a travelzoo voucher and had a weekend stay at Lady Bay.

The positives:
The staff were friendly, in particular when we had to change our booking. The continental breakfast was nice/sufficient too.

The negatives:
Our room felt like it was not all that clean, there was food stuck to the couch, worms inside, spiders and bugs galore, in particular the screen door leading from the lounge room to outside - I did not want to open the door as it freaked me out and I felt a bit uncomfortable lying on the couch feeling a bit dirty.

It was raining heavy on the first night and there was a big puddle outside our front door all the way from the entry point - this was undercover so not sure how it was so wet but in any case dangerous and not cleaned up.

Not the hotels fault however not ideal to have 2 adults and 2 kids staying in the apartment above, knick knocking on your door and very loud in the mornings when trying to sleep in. The adults were just as bad at 6.30-7am yelling out to their kids and opening and closing the front door. I felt like they were in our room so there is sound proofing (or respect from apartment 38).

The bedroom was bright - lights coming in at night and very light in the morning.

We had a room directly next to the skate park and I think this is not ideal. Maybe it is because we had a voucher???

There was no heating - either that or it did not work.

The stay was ok however I would not chose to stay again at Lady Bay.

First visit via groupon. Certainly value for money base. Warmth and helpful staffs. We arrived pretty late, hassle free check in. We had a 1 bedroom spa unit, clean and nice with view across the lake. Highly recommended resort. There is also a playground just by the lake which apparently has the highest ratings in trip advisor.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom luxury spa apartment for two nights in July. From the moment we arrived it was clear we'd made the right choice. Our apartment was clean, spacious and well-appointed - you could easily set up camp here for a week or two, as I'm sure many families do in the summer months. Being on the fourth floor gave us stunning views over the river and ocean. There were many places to eat in town, a short drive away, but on our second night we ate at the on-site restaurant. We were served a wonderful meal by a fantastic waitress - a very pleasant night and we didn't have to drive anywhere! All up the service, apartment and location were excellent - it's not cheap but it's certainly worth it. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Request a room on a higher floor to take advantage of the views.

We spent 1 week at Lady Bay Resort, was great experience from start to finish. Reception extremely friendly and helpful at check in + rest of week and always a smile. Handy having the restaurant on-site but heaps to choose from in town also.
Plenty of things to do in the area, nice walks right at the front door
We had 1 bedroom with nice ocean view, very clean and well fitted out, would rate this accommodation better that the 4 star, we will definitely return here.

Room Tip: we had 1 bedroom with ocean view

Stayed there for 2 nights in July. Lovely town with lots of restaurants.

Lady Bay resort is opposite Quality Suites Deep Blue which I believe has hotel rooms compared to the serviced apartments at Lady Bay. We got a one bedroom 'luxury' apartment which was very clean, tastefully furnished and overall was trouble free.

The furniture and decor was not luxury but was entirely adequate. The living area was separate with a mid size LCD TV, sofa and dining table. The kitchen was well equipped. The separate sleeping area had a queen bed and a couple of chairs.

It was very clean and quite new. The reception was closed Sunday evening and we had to drop the keys off when we left. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a second or third level room with a view of the bay!

We stayed two nights here in an apartment which was very well fitted out, clean and comfortable. It is almost on the beach with wonderful walking trails and a great base for exploring the Great Ocean Rd. Meals were very good and staff excellent. Two problems in the apartment (which I pointed out to the reception staff when we left) were:
the dryer was so high on the wall I had to throw the clothes in because I could not reach it then I had to drag a chair in and stand on it to get the clothes out:
the microwave was even higher, my fingers just touched the base of it so we did not use it.
We enjoyed out visit and would stay again if in the area.

great oceanfront resort, rooms with great ocean view incl. balcony, bit windy though. Beachwalk starts right in front of the hotel and you can walk as far as you want, reception was very nice, as well as restaurant personnel and bartenders. Food was good, breakfast could have been of more variety but we left at 6am, so I assume they were just starting brekky only for us. Borrowing a Switch for european plug-ins at the reception was no issue. Great stay, anytime again!

Room Tip: book ocean view room! :-)
