Torquay is a thriving tourist centre just a two-hour drive from the heart of Melbourne, with dual lane highways which are clearly sign posted. Avalon Airport is also closely located and operates services from most Australian cities, and there is a V/Line train service also operating. Although population is at its largest during summer, the bustling tourist centre is a hive of activity all year round, and provides everything Groupies need to enjoy a great stay.
What a lovely surprise this little hotel was! Great facilities and a quiet location much appreciated in noisy Torquay. The hotel is not in the centre of town but is a lovely walk along the beach. It would be a great venue to book for a small conference or to book out and stay with a group of friends.

Everything about Whitesbeach was excellent. Hosts were friendly and down to earth, available if needed but not intrusive. We stayed in the Retreat Suite, huge room with comfy king bed and small adjoining room with sofa and desk. Loved the pool, the pool area is fantastic with indoor heated pool and spa, and with only 7 suites on the property, it wasn't noisy or crowded. There is also a large billiards room, tennis court and several shared lounge areas. We enjoyed the eggs benedict for breakfast each morning too. All-in-all, a very pleasant stay and we would definitely stay there again.
