This was my first experience with a bed and breakfast, and I can’t wait to go back. The house is absolutely beautiful, and it has such a fantastic history that has been perfectly captured within the walls. From the moment we walked in the gate we were greeted by the houses wonderful gardens, they are amazing. The hosts were fabulous,... More

The rooms were comfortable and well appointed as was the bathroom. There were good touches to the detail and the breakfast was beautifully cooked. Our hostess couldn't have been more helpful. We enjoyed being land and being able to access local attractions as well as the Great Ocean Road. We'd certainly return.

A very lovely house with clearly great maintenance. Location is far (from Great Ocean Road), but i'd actually say it worth the time driving to there...if it is not for the two very confusing hosts. I booked through booking.com, where the family suite labeled as two single beds. So with 4 adults and 1 toddler, i've booked two suites. Upon... More

Thank you for your kind words. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and that you felt the 30 minute drive from the coast was worth it. It is unfortunate that the communication problem we had with you, and subsequently tried to rectify once we were aware of your confusion, has not tempered your frustration. Our online listing...

Such a great house and service. The rooms were clean and you can see attention to details in how everything is set up. The hotel located in about one hour drive from The London Bridge and the Twelve Apostles.

Fantastic place to stay. Heritage house lovingly restored with good quality linen and bathrobes. We stayed in suite 1 - spiral staircase to your own living room.

We booked 2 rooms and both were great. Breakfast was also good. Unfortunately could not make use of the beautiful garden because the weather wasn't great. Just a (very) slight minus. On the one hand it's great that the owners gave us a lot of privacy. On the other hand it would have been nice to see a bit of... More

My sister and I had a great stay here - loved staying somewhere with a history and Kathryn a great host - even made us hot toddies to counteract the rain. Bedrooms very comfortable, loved having a parlor to sit in and drink tea, and the bathrooms to indulge in. This is a great base to explore the area from.
