We visited Queenscliffe for a day a number of years ago and decided to stay here before 5 days along the Great Ocean Rd. The historical nature of the accommodation took our fancy and noting the reviews about it looking tired and having a noisy bar, I called to enquire about a room. The lady on the phone was very helpful and found a ground floor room away from the bar so booked it. We arrived in the evening after the reception closed and check-in was very hospitably handled by a gentleman in the front bar. We decided to have a drink in the bar prior to dinner in one of a couple of restaurants we have researched (Queenscliffe seems to have a number of very good restaurants, one of which we have dined at previously). The waitress was very helpful and in helping select beer and wine from their very good looking list. After a relaxing drink we decided to stay and have some tapas style dishes for dinner. That was a good choice. BTW, the bar’s last orders are by 8pm so we don’t know how it can be noisy latter in the night!!
Our room certainly meet our expectations for the hotel. There appears to have been a renovation in the 1980s which is standing the test of time. Some paint work could be attended to over the next year but that is always the case for an accommodation of this age (I am sympathetic as we used to have an old colonial home in Brisbane which was constant maintenance).
The breakfast had a suitable range of offerings, less than the big expensive hotels, but more than the average B&B. The quality was acceptable.
Overall the accommodation reflects its era and the staff presented a hospitality that every accommodation would be proud of.
