      Very happy with our stay. We arrived late and arranged were made to collect our key safely.. The room was tidy, clean linen, toiletries and even a small carton of fresh milk was in the mini fridge (we all know how annoying that it when you have a rack of tea bags and coffee but no milk)... Great service at front desk. Price was reasonable for 2 nights. Would stay here again for sure.. Thanks Bluff Resort Apartments for a great stay... K&D Beech

      Lovely please but just the little details”

      The accommodation is well laid out, the facilities are nice. We couldn't enjoy dinner at the restaurant downstairs as they do not open for dinner on Wednesday night, the wifi didn't quite reach out room and the entrance light didn't work so we had to make sure the outer door was open so we could see the inner door to our studio to open it. During lunchtime, getting food was fine but dinner time was a bit of a pain in the butt as we had to leave Encounter Bay and drive 10 mins up to Victor Harbor. The view was amazing, the bed was pretty comfortable and the studio was spacious. The TV isn't a crappy cheap TV either. It wasn't great but it was pleasant enough to cuddle up in front of to enjoy a film. Parking was easy and allocated per room and if you have a boat, the boat ramp is within a stone throw from the facility. Aircon was a little noisy but I think it was coming due for a service anyway.

      We stayed for 3 nights for our wedding anniversary - booked into a motel suite and was thrilled we were booked into the end room with a small view over the water and victor harbour - just lovely The room was large , very clean and beautifully decorated - with all we needed , staff great and location out by the bluff is perfect for those whom like it a bit quieter , but still able to walk to lovely eating places. The views across the water of town and granite island are just wonderful !!

      Space in the suit, cleanliness, clarity of information

      Had a wedding in Victor so we weren't really in the room much. We stayed in a suit, which we were well aware wouldn't have a view when we booked it, but the views from the studios and apartments would have been amazing. Room was really clean, spacious, well set out, well appointed. Admin were really lovely and friendly and accommodated us happily when we said that we would need to check in slightly early - they made sure our room was the first to be cleaned so that it was ready. Would go back.

      If you have everything with you, then the Bluff resort has all the other amenities, BBQ, Pool, Excellent views and sunshine! It's 20 mins from town and there's a deli and fish shop 10 min away. There's a separately owned restaurant near the premises, but it has restricted opening hours, so I never went there, can't comment.

      The best 3 things about the hotel are WIFI, the swimming pool, and the stunning views

      As a cleaner myself, I couldnt help but notice a cpuple small things around the hotel that wasn't clean, such as water on the shower floor, and dust on the windowsills. One of the globes by the bed had been replaced with a globe that wasn't compatible with the dimmer. The hotel facilities like the WiFi, laundry and swimming pool were fantastic. I thought it was great that the hotel used local produce in their breakfast baskets. The reception staff were really helpful and made us feel appreciated. It was good to see the pool boy cleaning the pool Wednesday morning. I loved the design of the pool, having the water from the large pool fall into the children's pool, creating a waterfall effect. The water pressure in the shower wasn't great, and unfortunately, the spa bath was a little underwhelming. I was excited to see what 8 Foxtel channels we had and it was disappointing that we only had 7 of the 8 channels, and they weren't configured to get a better quality picture to suit the tv in the room. The picture wasn't fitted to the tv screen, regardless of the settings. All in all, it was a great hotel with a few small things that can be fixed that would have made it grand.
