Pristine accommodation, magnificent gardens, ocean views, beautiful home-made foods and wonderful hosts, who are dedicated and passionate about what they do. We spent a couple of nights there after Christmas with our son, and were all made to feel like family. We wish them well.

Southern Heights has to be the epitome of B & Bs; it is too bad for potential guests after February 2014 that Lex and Mary are retiring from the B & B business. We are so happy that we stayed with them while their B & B was still open. The rooms are excellent, spotlessly clean, and fully furnished, and... More

We stayed here while doing the Great Ocean Road in October. I decided on Southern Heights because of its' tripadvisor status. As I write my review, the traveller rating is 82 excellent and 2 very good. Shortly it will be 83 / 2. The view to the coast is spectacular on a clear morning and equally as beautiful when it's...

Four of us stayed with Lex and Mary midway through our GOW. The hospitality, and overall attention to detail are second to none. The shared sitting room/kitchen is very well-stocked, including home made biscuits that are mouth-watering. Very very comfortable, and excellent value. We'd come again but Lex says next February (2014) is his and Mary's retirement date! Maybe the... More

We stayed at this B&B with another couple for 2 nights while walking the Great Ocean Walk from Apollo Bay to Port Campbell. The B&B is excellent. We were greeted by Mary and Lex and the smell of fresh baked biscuits. The 2 Queen bedrooms are separate from the main house and has its own living room. The quality of... More

We recently spent 2 nights at Southern Heights and it was an absolute highlight of our trip to Australia. The location is perfect for exploring the Great Ocean Road; the setting is majestic and the gardens beautiful; the bedroom was lovely, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were also amazing - fruit and yoghurt as well as homemade bread,... More

This is by far the best B&B we have stayed. The property is located along the Great Ocean Road but just far enough away from the main road we did not hear traffic noise at all. Landscape around the property is tastefully done. The bedrooms are very clean and comfortable. Lex and Mary are truly wonderful hosts. I still remember... More

Stopped late in the day when heavy weather came over the Great Ocean Road and really got lucky. Lex clearly puts his all into the place and all the details are thought through. Warm, clean and comfy beds, wifi access and a good view from the bedroom window. For $5 extra, a cooked breakfast you'd easily pay $18 for in... More
