Beautiful and clean, lovely cooked breakfast each day. The hosts were lovely and great with our little one who is 18 months old. Would highly recommend staying here it’s like home away from home.

8/10 Very good

THE GOOD: great value for money, cooked breakfast included, quiet location close to Geelong. Netflix, free Wi Fi, free parking, safe, friendly greeting. THE BAD AND THE UGLY:Temperature control/Air-conditioning an issue as guests do not have access to controls, the bedroom was too warm overnight, bad night sleep. Were not provided with the remote for the fan in the lounge room. Were not able to use the bath, no plug and given a lame excuse that someone took the plug and they couldn't get a new one at Bunnings. Lots of limitations and rules, don't eat or drink in rooms. Owners cat and dog have access to common areas,and cooking smells permeate the property- both are issues for people with allergies! Our door was open in the morning, we had locked the night before. We love our privacy and felt like we were being watched. Could hear the owners tv and see them walking around so felt they could see us too!. Weird. Was not clear on website that we would be sharing with the owners. Felt it was all about the ratings, felt pressured to write a review in their book.

10/10 Exceptional

An very luxurious Bed & Breakfast! The hosts Joan and Trevor gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home from the minute we arrived. We stayed 2 nights while touring the Great Ocean Road in early Jan 2022. We booked the 3 bedroom suite option. We had a massive lounge room, 3 large bedrooms and bathroom/toilet to ourselves. The B&B is attached to the main dwelling but our privacy was never interrupted. The beds are the comfiest beds we have ever slept in when compared to any other hotel/motel/Air BnB!! The location is very peaceful/quiet while only being a 15min drive from the Geelong waterfront. The large grounds of the property gave our kids more than ample room to run around and entertain themselves. The alfresco dining/entertaining area is massive and has all the basics of a kitchen if you're planning on preparing your own meals. Overall, we highly recommend this B&B. We will be returning here in Winter! Thanks again for your hospitality Joan & Trevor!
