Loved every moment of our getaway. Marie was more than lovely and the studio was perfect . Very romantic and would recommend this place to any couple wanting to explore some of the great ocean road.
Thank you again x

The most beautiful setting for a B&B with rooms having their own decking area where you can relax looking across the uninterrupted wonderful views across the ocean. Peaceful, very clean and comfortable. The decoration is quite ornate but the owners are obviously very proud of their home and are pleased to share it with their guests. The owners were very kind and helpful. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast of fruit, cereals, cooked breakfast, toast & fresh coffee, We couldn't have asked for more. Returning one day is definitely on our to do list! Thank you so much.

Room Tip: All beautiful rooms with glorious views.

We stayed at the Apollo Bay Guest House during our motorbike trip on the Great Ocean Road and 'Stunning' is the only way to describe this place. Its a hidden treasure with a quirky and well thought out design to take advantage of the amazing sea views. We were welcomed by Maree who built this amazing place with her husband. As soon as you step into the house it became obvious how much care and love has been put into building this place. Its full of character and charm, perfectly reflecting the personality of the hosts. Maree took us to our room and as soon as I walked in it took my breath away. Your eye is straight away drawn to the beautiful sea views the room offers. The patio door opens to a wooden deck and we enjoyed a lovely coffee there in the morning. The room was full of character with antique furniture which gives the room very cosy and special occasion feel. The room was spotless with lots of extra things added to make us feel welcome. I would highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway or even a honeymoon. Very special place indeed. The breakfast offered plenty of choice and Maree even made some homemade granola which was delicious. The only thing I regret is not taking the recipe off her! Don’t hesitate and book, you won’t regret it!

From the moment you walk through the gate, you know you have found a beautifully care for and loved home.

What a delight to be able to stay, with wonderful sitting areas, a lovely parlor over looking the fountain and a deck (off your room) which provide ocean and river views.

One to definitely pay extra for, to experience.

A very comfortable stay with everything spotlessly clean and plenty of space. Decidedly over ornate decoration to the rooms with a mish-mash of styles and certainly not to my taste even though my own house is full of antiques. Unnecessarily over attentive owner. Average breakfast.

We remain unapologetic for adopting a caring approach to our guests, whilst at all times respecting their privacy.
On your arrival you were shown to the Studio, which is separate from the main house and highlighted facilities (free WIFI, complimentary continental breakfast, cooked breakfast options etc) for your overnight stay and then contacted the Restaurant to re-confirm your dinner reservation
Our next contact with you was when you checked out the following morning when you expressed an interest in inspecting the main house
Your comments in relation to décor appear to have come from this quick viewing
The residence is certainly more ornate than the simplicity of the Studio, a setting that would be more aptly described as eclectic rather than mish-mash.

What a gem. Wonderful welcome by our host and the room we had had glorious views of the river and ocean. Every room was beautfully decorated in "French" style. Very comfortable beds and good breakfast. Would have liked to have stayed longer, but our itinerary did not permit this. Would highly recommend this delightful bed and breakfast accommodation.

We stayed in this delightful Guest House for two nights. when we arrived we were warmly greeted by the very hospitable owners. The position of our room was quite delightful, looking directly across a narrow river estuary on to the ocean. At night the sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep in a most comfortable bed. We had an area of deck outside our patio style doors where we could sit, read and watch the plentiful bird life in the estuary and the garden of native shrubs and trees. Marie, the lady of the house even had binoculars available to watch the birds.
The house was quite beautiful with a fascinating blend of French and Australian high quality design. This home stay is quite unique.
