My parents Travel Agency from France booked us in for one night as we were driving from Great Ocean Road to Kangaroo Island. A very different set up than the beaches when you come from Torquay & Apollo Bay. However it is good to see what the countryside looks like. It is a fair bit of drive from the beach...

Visited Quamby again with our daughter who lives in Melbourne. We stayed in the Carriage House which is self catering. It was very well equipped and spacious and ideal for our purposes. We were looked after very well and the gardens were beautiful. We visited both Port Fairy and Warnambool while there, both an easy 20/25 minutes drive away. A...

My friend and I stayed at Quamby for 3 nights while exploring the Great Ocean Road in November 2014. We absolutely loved the place for its beautiful grounds and cooling tranquillity. William and Ailsa were also excellent and attentive hosts, and couldn't make us feel more welcome. We stayed at the Mews room, which was charming and well kept. We...

My partner and I stayed at Quamby during a Great Ocean Road Trip. It was our last overnight stay before heading back to Melbourne.

We had just one night at the homestead (April 2014) whilst travelling the Great Ocean Road. It was well worth the diversion. William was a first-class host, and as we were the only guests that night we felt like honoured guests. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are excellently renovated. What a great setting for welcoming the weary traveller....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quamby Homestead, located just 25mins from Warrnambool and Port Fairy, is an idyllic stopover between the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians and en route to Adelaide. This historic (built in 1888) 4 Star homestead offers the opportunity to soak up some history whilst enjoying fine accommodation in the serenity of a 3-acre garden setting. Guest rooms are set within the botanic gardens, separate from the Homestead and all with private entrances. For a short visit, stay in one of the five Mews Rooms with Queen or twin single beds, and our family suite for 4 people. Or for a longer break the original School House and the converted 2 bedroom Carriage House offer the space to relax and unwind. The rooms, all located within the garden, have different outlooks - garden, farmland or the dams and farmland. Soak up the ambiance, relax and enjoy, or spot kangaroo, echidna, possums, and study the historic plantings in a relaxed, private atmosphere. So visit Quamby Homestead to stop and draw a breath or explore the unique volcanic coastline. ... more   less
