“Disappointing and smelly”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

I stayed at the Bridport Bay Inn for one night while attending a friend's wedding. I paid approx $120 for a studio room. I wasn't expecting much for this price but was pretty disappointed all the same. The room smelt, the sheets had stains on them, the walls were paper thin (you could hearing people talking, quite clearly, in the next room) and the bathroom sink smelt like something had crawled down it and died. The TV was miniscule. It also took about 20 mins to check in because no one served me, and when they did they could not find my booking.

Positives? It is in a very convenient location, close to shops and beach. But that's about it.

We had two great meals here - one on a quiet Sunday, the other on a very busy Saturday night - and both were top notch. There's lots to choose from, including an extensive entree menu, counter meal faves like scotch fillet and beer battered fish (flathead in this case - yum!), and also a specials board with other seafood alternatives, a pasta dish etc. The meals were beautifully presented and tasted just as good. The steaks were lovely cuts and cooked just as ordered. The service was friendly and quick, even with several large tables on the Saturday. We also grabbed some takeaway pizzas one evening and they were a great meal too.

Three of us enjoyed lunch here on a warm and sunny day. We each chose from the lunch specials menu, with a curried scallops, open steak sandwich and chicken kiev. Each meal was A$15-$16, which is good value price these days. The non-specials menu showed prices ranging between A$20-A$35, including fresh local scallops at the higher end. We were more than happy with the cheaper lunch menu.

The scallops weren't local or fresh, but nice and firm in a tasty mango curry sauce over rice. Each meal was ordered with salad and chips, instead of optional vegetables. The salad was fresh and tasty and the chips cooked well. The steak sandwich had nice caramelized onions on top steak, bacon, cheese and salad.

The hotel sits atop the hill in the main street overlooking parts of the town and out to Bass Strait.

Anytime I'm in Bridport, I'd be very happy to eat here again.
