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

What a fantastic and lovely place to stay! Maureen and Owen were soo very friendly and accommodating- anything you needed they were more than happy to help. I would most definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone needing to stay in Geelong for a few nights. Breakfast was prepared every morning and was delicious. My room was... More

My Irish friend and I were made to feel like part of the family. We had a lovely relaxing stay in this beautiful home. Would definitely stay again. The separate lounge area for drinks and relaxing was perfect. Thank you.

Visited Ardara House for a girls weekend away. From the moment we walked in the door our hostess Maureen and her her husband made us feel that we were part of the family. The house is immaculate and the rooms are more than comfortable. Breakfast was more than ample and the fresh fruit was a very nice touch. We walked... More

Stayed one night in March in a beautifully furnished and comfortable room. Pot of tea on arrival provided by our very friendly host. Very quiet despite the fairly busy road and only a short drive or a walk to the waterfront. Fresh fruit and variety of cereals and toast served in the breakfast room. Would recommend.

A very nice break from boring hotel rooms that all seem the same. Ardara is decorated in a delightfully old fashioned way and is very comfortable and well-kept. The owner, Maureen, is very hospitable and goes out of her way to chat and offer advice about the surrounding area.

We stayed at Ardara House this week as a last minute type of stay after an afternoon of bird watching. Although I was a bit loose with my communication (sorry, Maureen), Maureen was very friendly and "no fuss", when we arrived kind of late and without confirming first. Our room was beautiful, with fit out in full period style, with... More

Thank you so much Owen and Maureen for you magnificent hospitality. The house was beautiful and we felt so much at home that we will be back. The house was in a great location and walking distance to all that we were after. The night market that you told us about was great. We both really enjoyed chatting to you... More
