My wife and I toured Australia for 6 weeks in November and December and the Managers B&B accommodation managed to combine being both our most expensive and the least satisfactory overnight stay. There are no evening meals supplied so they know you are going to have to self cater. We found a fridge with no shelves (what use is that?),... More

We stayed in The Managers B&B at Cape Ottway and have to confess to being less than impressed with both the standard of room. The location is superb and it's great to have the place almost to yourselves after the park closes but there needs to be some upgrading of the standards.The room was small with a double bed almost...

If ever in the way south or if friends are traveling, this was quite unique. Not for all, as it is very remote and after 5:30, it is just overnight guests and the groundskeeper. For us that was most amazing. They will fix dinner and bring to your cottage before they leave the tea house for the night. Food was... More

In the first week of December, we booked the only two rooms available for our (3 adults) one night stay at The Cape Otway Lightstation, on the 27th December - the OLK rooms. I tried to get info from the web about these rooms, to no avail. All I knew, was, they were some of the only beds available on... More

We didn't actually stay in the cottage but we popped the rooftop tent in the grounds of the lighthouse. There's only room for two or three campervans, but we were the only ones. There are no facilities apart from de mountable toilets and a good BBQ area. But apart from camping with the bare basics this was a terrific place... More

16 of us took the two cottages and had a glorious weekend, helped by amazing sunny weather that saw us breakfasting outside. The king size beds were clean and comfortable and the rooms spacious. While the kitchen was well equipped in terms of place settings more needs to be provided for cooking purposes. It would be best to come equipped... More

Big mistake was not to read these excellent reviews before I booked ! The location is outstanding, however the accommodation is vastly overrated and below standard for the exorbitant price for the 2 night stay. The list is endless but here are the important points : no milk on arrival,heating sparse,no heating in bathroom, however, I can put an oil... More

Having planned on driving the great ocean road and only doing this over two days, we needed a place more or less halfway to the twelve apostles and back to Melbourne. Having seen that there was a place to stay near the lighthouse, it was an interesting choice of place to stay for us as we could clearly see there... More
