We actually stayed here in August of 2013, but the select menu won't allow us to go back that far. We travelled to Geelong from Melbourne to see Paul Kelly play the Playhouse for his Spring and Fall tour which was a fantastic concert, but we were incredibly grateful to be staying in Ardara House. Beautiful room, clean and very... More

We stayed at Ardara over a weekend to attend a relative's wedding in Geelong. After driving 700 ks we were welcomed by a much-needed cup of tea, a friendly chat with Maureen and time to relax before unpacking the car. We found Ardara to be extremely well appointed, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. It is centrally situated within walking distance... More

This was our second time staying with Maureen and Owen, and I would truly not stay anywhere else in Geelong. You are made to feel so welcome, and the house is beautiful, and lovingly maintained. Rooms are so cosy and comfortable, so much better than a cold clinical hotel room. It really feels as though you are staying with friends.... More

What an amazing B&B. Suitable for young, old, couples and families. We can not thank Maureen and Owen for making the last days of our holiday what a holiday should be after 2 weeks in unsuitable accommodation Ardara B&B was recommended to us and we were delighted that there was a room left in this beautiful comfy home. It was... More

We stayed at Adara hotel as part of a family trip. Maureen and Owen are very friendly and welcomed us all. The accommodation is beautiful and is worth a visit on its own. It is close to everything, there is no road noise, parking is available etc. I highly recommend a stay if you are in Geelong. It is also... More

Maureen and Owen made us feel very welcome. They are warm and friendly people. The bedroom with an ensuite is clean and comfortable. We had interesting conversations with the other guests and Maureen as well during breakfast.We enjoyed our stay there.

Great spot if you want to be in the heart of it all. Maureen & Owen provide a warm, friendly atmosphere in a Comfortable, Clean Period Home close to everything. I'm a light sleeper and even though it's on a main road, traffic noise isn't an issue. Thanks for a lovely stay👍

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting relatives. The house is old and beautifully furnished with traditional pieces. As previous reviewers have said Maureen is very welcoming and made our stay a very pleasant one. There was some traffic noise from the busy road but it didn't stop us getting a very good nights sleep. Much preferred this stop... More

If you want a personal accommodation experience in Geelong, then Ardara House is a great choice. Maureen and Owen hospitable hosts. Our room was clean, warm and inviting. Breakfast was fresh fruit, yoghurt, choice of cereals and toast. Like other reviewers have noted - it's like staying with friends.

This lovely old house has been carefully preserved and tastefully furnished, using quality materials. It's warm and welcoming and our double room was very spacious, with a marvellously high ceiling and a clean and adequate bathroom. Although Ardara is on a very busy main road, we had no trouble with noise as the traffic all but ceases at night. As... More
