From the moment one opens the door and steps inside Ardara House you are transported into another time. Thoughtful touches in the rooms and throughout the house make you feel completely at home, although just a little bit Irish perhaps 😉. Comfy warm beds, own bathroom and kitchen (room 1), air conditioning and ducted heating make for a comfy stay....

A truly delightful older style home hosted by lovely couple Maureen and Owen who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The home is situated right on the edge of the centre of Geelong city, very close to every facility. and by a busy intersection but outside traffic noise was negligible and absolutely no problem. The bed...

Hi Maureen and Owen A great big THANK YOU again to both of you for welcoming me into your home and making my stay in Geelong so special. As I said, it's the little things that make all the difference, like being able to make a bottomless cuppa, safely store my (hired) bike and wash my cycling gear, etc. And...

I stayed at beautiful Ardara B&B with my daughter and we both loved it. If you would appreciate being cared for by a lovely Irish lassie (and lad) and would like a big, well mantained, tasteful room-then this is the place for you. There is a lot of old world charm at Aradara House and it is just like a...

I stayed at Ardara House B&B with my partner over a weekend as we were in town for a wedding. The service offered by Maureen was second to none - a delicious breakfast of fresh produce, comfortable beds with crisp linen and everything was spotless. I would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

A great place to stay on a stop over in Geelong. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Extremely comfortable bed for a great nights sleep. The breakfast was nice fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal and toast a great way to start the day. I highly recommend this lovely place.

A beautiful experience at Ardara House. Gorgeous old school charm, spotlessly clean, exceptional attention to detail, fabulous hosts. I could not recommend this BnB more highly. Do not get discouraged by the inability to book online at this stage - evidently the website is under reconstruction so send through an email to Maureen and she will be only too happy...
