“Beautiful house”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

We only had 1 night here, being on a fairly long trip visiting family across the south of Australia. It was very comfortable and the house is beautiful with some lovely artwork. Well situated, it's a pleasant walk into town. We did find the breakfast arrangements slightly unusual - not what we think of as breakfast back in the UK! But we were so full from the dinner we had the night before at 'Sandy Feet' that anything more would have been wasted on us.It was lovely sitting out on the terrace in the morning. The owner was very friendly - his wife was away so we didn't get to meet her. We did find it expensive but that's partly down to the exchange rate and the Great Ocean Road does seem pricier than elsewhere.

Room Tip: We had the blue room which was very nice.

We had a nice stay at Casa Favilla. It is a very modern B&B which is done up well. Gerald is very friendly host. It is a nice walk to the town centre nearby for dinner and to the bay. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with wi fi access. Breakfast is self service with ample choices of bread, cereals, juices and a fruit bowl which gets topped up daily.

We just loved the style and set of of Casa Favilla. We were met by the owner, a New Zealander, who could not have been more welcoming. We were in the Red Room. Great set up. We loved both the breakfast arrangements and the general lounge area.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked good to us

Reviewed 22 January 2012

We stayed at Casa Favilla in Jan 2012. We had booked in Sep 2011 as we were travelling with my Sister and her hsuband to see the Great Ocean Drive. However due to a family emergency my sister had to return to the UK. We informed Gerrard the owner and he was very kind in allowing us to cancel the other room at a weeks notice and transfered deposit to our booking. The B&B is very good, there is a large guest lounge area whcih is the main reception area and very relaxing. We stayed in the Green Room a very nice room with access to the rear seating area. Rooms are equipped with Fridge for beer and wine, The room is comfortable with TV and en suite batroom.

Breakfast is self service in kitchen / reception area with selection of teas, cofees etc and selection of breakfast items such as, Corn Flakes, Rice Crispies, etc and breads ranging from White, Wholemeal, Raisin Bread etc. You can have breakfast pretty much when you want.

Location is excellent no more than 5 mins leasurly walk to the town and on a quiet road, in the green room you do not even realise you are on the road.

Gerrard the owner lives on site and is very helpful and can help with info etc.

Apollo bay is very good as a base and we found it very good for exploring and also spending a day on the beach and in town people watching.

Room Tip: Blue Room would seem to be the largest. Red room is large but is by the front door.

My partner and I stayed overnight here (off season) during our recent Great Ocean Road trip, and stayed in the Green Room. This room is the smallest of the 3, and very comfortable; if the weather had been better, we would have enjoyed the balcony attached to it, but happily the heating & shower worked very well. We had the benefit of being the only guests, which meant the lounge & gas fire to ourselves; a beautifully furnished room complete with chesterfield. The DIY aspect of the B&B meant you could use the facilities like your own place. The owner was very chatty & friendly too. A comfortable stay.

We only stayed overnight at Casa Favilla on our trip along the Great Ocean Road. We were very impressed with the accommodation, eveything was spotlessly clean and we liked the self service breakfast, there was plenty of food and a good variety. Not your conventional B & B but we liked it - stayed in the Red Room. Good location for exploring Apollo Bay - look out the RSL Club - very friendly people had a great evening with them!

Price Range (Based on Average Rates): £
Hotel Class:4.5 star — Casa Favilla 4.5*

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We are a bed and breakfast, not a hotel or motel. There are differences as we don't, for example, have a spa bath in any room but instead we have a dedicated "Spa Room" that may be rented by guests of ANY room that has been pre-booked. It is NOT a shared spa room but instead designed exclusively for a couple. We have complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in each bedroom, including black, green and herbal teas. The breakfast menu is complimentary and "as much as you like" (within reason) type of service, including Continental type coffee, but is not a cooked breakfast. The main shared lounge room with quality leather furnishings has a gas log fire. With only 3 rooms guests rarely compete for its use at any time. Breakfast is typically self-serve but we are prepared to set it up. It is just that most guests prefer to choose themselves in the morning what time to start the day, rather than be called for breakfast. ... more   less
