The Bed Report 3: Quest Warrnambool Accommodation Review


As Warrnambool is a decent-sized regional city at the western end of Victoria's Great Ocean Road, it makes a good base for sampling both urban and scenic pleasures.

The modern Quest Warrnambool apartment complex is well sited to take advantage of both, being placed neatly between the ocean and a shopping strip.

In one direction, past Lake Pertobe, is the excellent sandy swimming beach of Lady Bay and the refreshments available at its surf lifesaving club.

In the other, Liebig Street is lined by a variety of restaurants and shops, along with a theatre and art gallery.

Our one-bedroom apartment centres on a spacious living room, with a long sofa and TV at one side and a dining table at the other.

Behind the table, the kitchen area is equipped with oven, stovetop and dishwasher (with just enough utensils for some light self-catering).

The living room opens onto a long, broad balcony which overlooks the small communal swimming pool below.

The bedroom and bathroom are both a reasonable size, with a large wardrobe and washing machine respectively.

The decor, like that of the living room, emphasises unprovocative neutral tones with a tinge of natural colours.

Given its size and location, this accommodation would be a great place for a week-long getaway by the sea.
