such and amazing location. Quiet, tranquil and gorgeous. Great hosts and great for a relaxing getaway. The glow worms were a definite highlight for us. The little pinpricks of light guiding us through the darkness was magical.

Bob and Virginia are a lovely couple who provided us with a lovely room and breakfast in a beautiful location. Their garden is just splendid and a pleasure to walk through, and for people who like dogs - they have two adorable greyhounds! Just one kilometre down the road is the Melba Gully rain forest walk, where glow worms light... More

Virginia and Bob are delightful hosts and run a charming B&B set on a gorgeous property full of flowers, and a huge selection of various trees. The setting is tranquille and the birdlife is fabulous. The rooms are cosy and very clean but note there is no TV. You should be here to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Just 2 minutes... More

A friend and I arrived late in the afternoon so did not have as much time as we would have liked at this beautiful garden. A toot on the horn (as the sign says) and Virginia appeared with her two beautiful greyhounds to welcome us to her property. After a bit of a chat and a pat of the friendly... More

There was much to enjoy about this B & B. The gardens are blooming, pretty, well-kept, thoughtfully marked ("Hmm, I wonder what this tree is...? Ah, here's the label.") and loved by the birdlife. The room was comfortable, clean and included everything you'd expect. Virginia and her dogs were friendly and relaxed. One touch that I smiled at was the... More

Having arrived in Lavers Hill late in the day & no where booked to stay at peak holiday time, were lucky enough to be given the number for here. Virginia & Bob welcomed us into their home and beautiful gardens, with intriguing barbed wire sculptures. We enjoyed the great breakfast with a choice of 16 home made jams that they... More

Got to Cottage Flower Farm, late in the day, based on looking at a list from the information center. PS- the info centers on the great ocean road are a GREAT resource. What a wonderful surprise. Up in the rain forest, just 1 KM from Melba Gully. And the garden areas, just amazing. Virginia and Bob are serious gardeners, both... More

I stayed here recently with my husband and my parents in their late 50's. Virginia was very welcoming and made us tea and coffee when we arrived and was kind enough to let us re-freeze the ice blocks from our chilly bin. The rooms, although basic, were comfortable and perfect for a nights B&B on the road. We had plenty... More

We paid $150 per room per night and we didn't even get bacon in the breakfast. You should expect cereal and scrambled eggs. Tasty enough, but for that price I really expected a bit more. Otherwise it was all quite nice.
