Ocean view room was absolutely lovely and the service was impeccable. Very friendly, accomodating and comforting. The views were lovely and will definitely revisit in the near future. Our stay didn't finish when we checked out, once arriving home, we received a phone call to let us know we left a wallet there, not only were the staff ringing to...

The bluff resort is in a perfect location overlooking encounter bay. My friend and I stayed at the Bluf to celebrate our birthdays. We had a 2 storey bedroom apartment with a balcony which had fantastic panoramic views of Victor Harbour and granite island. The views are what makes this place attractive. Our apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. The...

Three bedroom apartment overlooking the harbor. Clean with comfortable beds. They offered coffee for one morning only and to get more we had to pay. Pretty balcony overlooking the water and quiet rooms.

Occupying the prime real estate overlooking Encounter Bay, a stay here can be a pleasant experience – so long as you opt for a room with a view. Otherwise it’s going to be a very ordinary experience. Hailing from the 1970s or so the property looks better from afar than it does on close inspection. It’s clean, tidy and in...

Fantastic apartment, lovely receptionist, very functional kitchen, clean, comfortable and has a lovely view of the harbour. No breakfast supplied, although you can purchase a hamper for $49 from reception. We would definitely visit again, although a little expensive.

We stayed 2 nights in one of the Apartments. The view is excellent, we looked out over the Harbour and Granite Island in the distance. The people were very friendly and helpful with any information or request we had. Had the weather been a bit warmer we would have been in the pool, which was very clean and well maintained....

We stayed share for 2 nights over a long weekend. Clean, tidy and large spacious room. Private balconies with a gorgeous view of the water. Walking distance to the bluff and plenty of attractions and hikes to do in the area. Better if you have your own car if you're wanting to get into the victor town centre etc. But...

The room itself was ok. A bit dated, but clean enough. The biggest problem with the room was that the only windows overlooked the backdoor of the next block of hotel rooms. It seems that the original hotel probably had a beautiful view of the bay, but then they (bizarrely) decided to build a new block right in front of...

If you really must then pay extra and get on the top floor so you can see more than a wall. Really noisey if you have a floor above you and the acoustics of the place mean you hear everything from all around you. Dreadful but it is clean if that helps make your mind up.
