Nice place. Stayed here with our Bunyip tour group as we travelled Great Ocean Road and Philip Island on 2 day tour. We were assigned to a recently renovated room which was really nice. This resort is in very close proximity to beach where we went to watch sunset

Stayed just one night, with a friend in a one-bedroom apartment. We were a little unsure about staying in what was obviously a family-oriented holiday park, but we shouldn't have been. Our experience was great - we would happily stay again. Our apartment was modern, clean (very clean), well equipped and quite spacious. It appeared to be very well maintained... More

We visited & stayed at the Beacon Resort in Queenscliff last weekend (23/10/2016) for 3 nights, 2 A, 2 C. Admittedly it was quiet, so we basically had the pool & facilities all to ourselves.

We had a very comfortable stay in one of the well equipped deluxe cabins. Decent gas cooking facilities, but the rooms weren't serviced so you need to go up and ask for new towels and toiletries.
