Overlooking the spectacular beaches of Victoria’s Surf Coast, this Wyndham property makes for an excellent destination all year round. Wyndham Resort Torquay is just opposite the beach at Zeally Bay, while the beaches of Bells and Jan Juc, popular with surfers, are a short ride away. From here, Surfworld Museum is a short ride away and should definitely be on the itinerary. Recreational facilities at the hotel include an indoor and an outdoor pool, a fitness center, and the Breathe Day Spa. The guestrooms are stylish and spacious while the apartments feature patios or private balconies, many overlooking the swimming pool, or the beach. Dining options managed by the Surf Coast Hotel include 100 The Esplanade Restaurant & Bar which overlooks Zeally Bay and serves world-class cuisine in an alfresco setting, while the The Pool Bar is the perfect place to relax for pre or post dinner drinks.
"Staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating."

Best Torquay option”
Best location, big rooms, reasonable price with great beach access. We were there end of winter, so the whole central pool thing did not work so much. Summer? Probably great within the resort, but then again I would probably rather head to the beach, so close! Cafe looked OK, but there are so many really great options just a few minutes walk away in central Torquay. Seemed to have lots of family friendly options, like a games room, table tennis, bikes etc, but that was not us, this time anyway.
Gateway to the Great Ocean Road!”
Located in Torquay, the hotel is a perfect place from which you can organise your day trip along the Great Ocean Road. The hotel boasts great sea views too. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance as well.
Not far from Melbourne, this resort is situated in the heart of Torquay! You can walk to the beach in less than 5 minutes, you get beautiful views and there is always something to do. I will mention that the hotel facilities (indoor pool, gym etc.) are outdated and the amenities are limited within the rooms but nothing that can't be worked around. I would visit again, my partner and I had a wonderful time!
Spacious room clean nice bathroom. Short car ride from commercial area of Torquay. Didn’t use the resort facilities.
We stayed for 2 nights. Everything is as nice as it looks in the photos on the website. I was worried when I saw the spa prices on line, but it turned out to be a lot cheaper with specials and discounts there. A "top-to-toe" package" (foot soak, full massage and facial was an affordable $140. You are given a book of discount vouchers to use in the hotel which had some real savings, including family meal for 4 for $50, free bottle of wine with 2 mains, 2-for-one buffet breakfast for $30, free drink vouchers and more. The day-spa and heated pool are great if the weather turns bad. Fantastic location across the road from the beach. I will definately return.
Great location, great pool”
Quick visit to Torquay, would stay longer if we had more time. Great place to relax. Expensive to use internet in the hotel.
Great 1-night stay over”
Was a stopover night after the drive from Great Ocean Road, and arrived after usual dinner time. Staff was very helpful in suggesting food places and even helped to call up the restaurant to make sure that they were still open! Pity that we didnt had time to explore and enjoy the facilities of the hotel.
Lovely resort but issues”
Room was very small and looked out over the car park entrance. Recommend pay the extra for the pool facing rooms as far nicer outlook. The pools and grounds are lovely although on edge of town so not huge amount around. There is a cafe on the beach about 5 mins walk and another 5 mins takes you to bowls club which has good food and all welcome. The town is maybe 15 mins walk from the resort along sea front so pleasant enough but not huge choice of restaurants close by and the main strip is maybe 25 mins walk. TV in room very old fashioned and confusing and not in keeping with the modern feel of the place. And no wifi seems crazy when these days even the smallest motels are offering it for free. Parking is also a bit cramped underground and when busy may not be enough spaces. In a town without a great deal of higher end hotels this place is an option. But its expensive for what you get in relation to other locations i feel.
Great location, great room, great resort”
excellent greets, excellent location, great room. only parking was full on the arrival day, but did not bother us a bit since the public carpark is right at the doorstep anyway. next to the beach. excellent resort facilities. definitely will recommend.
Excellent resort right across the road from the beach. The facilities are 2nd to none, the kids loved the outdoor pool and us adults enjoyed the bar/cafe and the tranquility of nighttime once the kids were asleep!
beautiful resort in a great location”
had a wonderful relaxing time. kids absolutely loved the pool, spa & park. staff were extremely helpul & service was excellent. nicely located opposite the beach & within a few minunte drive to shops/restaurants etc. rooms were very nice clean & modern. i would & will reccomend this resort to anyone and everyone. we will definately be back.
Average resort ”
We stayed in Torquay for a wedding. Location of resort was good, short walk to town and beach. The resort and rooms were old and tired. The restaurant is permanently closed and there is no breakfast available during the week. Was ok for our trip, but wouldn’t stay here for a holiday.
Fantastic resort all around”
We only stayed for a night, but everything was amazing. Staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The 1-bedroom apartment was huge and very well appointed. The hotel itself is not in the middle of town (which is nice), and it's across the road from the beach (although I can't comment on how good this section of the beach is, as we did not go swimming due to the time of year we visited).
Overseas-style pool in our own backyard”
Missing the luxury pools of our usual overseas adventures, we decided to do an overnight staycation close to home. We definitely scratched that itch with our stay here. The pool is gorgeous, happily spent an afternoon floating around in it. The rooms are well appointed and modern. The location is excellent - right on the beach and a short walk to the main esplanade. The Ben & Jerry's Fridge and coffee machine in reception was great for late night snacking and early morning kick-starting. The only down-side (if there is one) is re-aligning our own expectations on what bang for buck gets you at home. For a per-night stay we would have expected inclusive things such as breakfast - but this is a very minor gripe and is perhaps not tenable anyway with the onsite restaurant now permanently closed. There is an poolside cafe next to the games area but it wasn't open during our stay. We will definitely be back when we are in the mood for a staycation.
Our stay here was kicked off by a very welcoming team at reception, who were extremely nice! We were rang in advance to be told the restaurant would be closed for the two nights we were there, which was nice of them, but we arrived to find out that it was actually closed indefinitely, as was the bar. This was a shame, but we were given takeaway menus from reception to order food in. It was great value for location, bed was comfortable, bathroom was massive as well!
great start to GOR”
we relaxed before traveling the great ocean road
Great family resort with lots to do for all family
Great Hotel, bad location.”
We stayed just the 1 night at the Wyndham Resort and while the hotel was lovely and staff very helpful, the bar & restaurant were both closed when we arrived, so we had to travel into town for food. This is where the location is a problem as its a short drive out of town, which then involves getting a taxi or someone driving. Overall a great hotel, just lacking amenities within walking distance.
Clean and Easy”
Though the rooms are a little dated, they are clean and well presented. A great location, close to restaurants and the beach. We will return for sure
Great place, pool area is fantastic. Staff were great and the apartment I booked had everything I needed! After I checked out, the lovely staff member provided us with another access card to use the pool area. They also gave us a free upgrade on the room which was nice! Would visit again :)
