My partner and I spent one night at Ardara House as we were in Geelong for the "After Dark" show. Maureen is a great host; informative and helpful but gives her guests the space they need too. The house is amazing! Every room is furnished to an incredibly high standard and not cluttered. The room was actually very spacious. We... More

My husband and I stayed overnight at Ardara House whilst visiting friends in Geelong. It is a beautiful old house in excellent proximity to shops, cafes and hotels in the city area. It had parking out the back which was very convenient as it is on a very busy, main road.The traffic noise was not a problem though as we... More

Had a most wonderful weekend staying at Adara House B&B, which is only a stones throw from the heart of Geelong City, so very convenient if you want to walk down the street to shop etc. The accommodation was beautiful, every thing was nice and clean and the hosts were exceptionally helpful. There was off street parking, so your vehicle... More

We spent 3 nights with Maureen and Owen. They were very accommodating and helpful. The rooms were well supplied and the breakfast fine. Within walking distance of the city and Pako street where we enjoyed some good meals. Very homely and quaint. Separate bathroom and own bathroom. Welcomed with a cuppa which always makes instant friends.

We stayed at Adara for 4 nights and we had the most delightful stay. Maureen and Owen are such welcoming and warm people. We woke up every day to a beautifully prepared healthy breakfast by Maureen. Our room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated, it had an ensuite and kitchenette which is handy to have when you are staying for... More

Thanks to Maureen for being so welcoming. It was great to stay in a traditional B&B with beautiful old furniture, a friendly host and a healthy breakfast. The room was huge and had a kitchenette and bathroom, very handy as we were travelling with our 9-month old. Maureen was very kind to entertain our boy to allow us to relax... More

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
