I liked this place. Very old fashion, but in a good shape, and comfortable beds. Bad wifi. Average breakfast, nice staff and excellent location. Easy to park, easy to find. Go for a night or two, but don't stay too long, as Ocean Grove, Queenscliff etc are nicer.

The location was very central and within walking distance to the main shopping area and waterfront. We were warmly greeted by the host and shown where to park and escorted to the one bedroom apartment we had booked. The accommodation was in period style from the time of the original building with modern day extras like TV & central heating.... More

Very nice old house that was converted to a B&B. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Only complaint was that it can get noisy, especially since we had a room facing the front of the building, and wooden shutters didn't block much of the street lights or the sun coming up in morning.

Lovely "homely" B&B. Paul (the owner) is a really nice guy and made our stay there very enjoyable. Beautiful common area with Guitars, telescopes, electric organ?! A little quirky even! Just across the road from "Jokers" Bar - the only bar open past 11pm on a weekday!And a 24hr maccas if you're really stuck, but heaps of great cafe's and... More

I stayed here on my way back home after a long night drive. I was an hour later than I had intended and Paul happily waited for me. The breakfast was beautiful with porridge, cereal (including muesli), yogurt, tea coffee, toast and orange juice on offer. Bathrooms were clean as was the room. Will definitely stay here again.

Easy walk to town and restaurants, botanical garden (walk before the game) and to the stadium. Easy to find after a drive from Melbourne.

Very friendly owner and fast response. The house was almost full when we booked (quite last minute). Location was good, there's a Mac fast food just across the road, and walking distance to many shops. Breakfast room was cosy and nice, with ample food and drinks (there are even choices of bread, not just plain bread!). Bathroom was big and... More

I selected this stately and historic B&B for a single night in Geelong for business. My room and the shared bathroom. we're spacious and clean, the bed comfortable. Unusually hot weather tested the capacity of the air in in the room, and I was bothered by street noise on this busy road despite the attempt at double glazing. Host Paul... More

Beautiful historical mansion, very clean and comfortable with free breakfast. We slept so well in this spacious bedroom in winter with such powerful heater, washroom is also huge with nice bathtub. Best among all the good things here, the Maintenance Lady is of the highest integrity and honesty. After we have checked out, she found my precious watch being left... More

Had a really pleasant stay at Gatehouse on Ryrie at the end of our Great Ocean Road trip. Free parking was a plus, only three bays available, but plenty of on road parking nearby, don't know if there is a charge for this. Twin room had a tv and DVD player, and the beds were a queen size and a... More
