Wonderful view of beautiful lakes and sea. Clean, cosy, peaceful, romantic. Lovely spa. One of our favourite places to stay for a romantic weekend. Helpful, friendly host. We have stayed at least 5 times (lost count!) and keep coming again and again!

I've stayed with Joy on at least twenty occasions, as I travel there every month or two for business. Each time it is slightly different: the ocean view could be stormy or calm; you might have a spa or chill out on the balcony; or you might hear Wallace the Wombat strolling around at night. But what never changes is... More

I stayed in January with my girlfriend in the Gooses Nest room. It was a great private room with a huge hot tub that had with a really good view of the ocean. The room also had some nice candles which made it feel more romantic. Joy was fantastic during our stay. She was very helpful with recommending restaurants and... More

My fiancee and I stayed at the Goat and Goose over the Easter weekend and we both agreed that this was the best B&B we have stayed in. The host, Joy, couldn't do enough for us. She showed us the best way to walk into town, she called up and booked us on our boat cruise around the lake and... More

If you are looking for traditional bed & breakfast then The Goat & Goose is the place to stay. Joy obviously loves looking after her guests in this fabulous accommodation venue because she couldn't do enough to make our stay one of the best we have ever experienced. We would recommend the Goat & Goose to all wanting views, comfort... More

Very disappointing!! Please guys do not trust these reviews.This place does not look like the pictures at all.After 5 hours drive we had to experience this and I really don`t want anyone else to have same experience.This place is really old,dirty and rooms are not even 1% close to the one on pictures.These reviews are really misleading.

Sorry to note that this review was posted by a person who never stayed here. Had they actually arrived at the Goat and Goose, I'm sure they would have had a relaxing experience, as others have done. More

As others have commented, a house full of character and Joy is an excellent ,welcoming host. Happy to recommend and book restaurants and generally give advice about the area. Our room was spacious, clean and quirky. Sitting with a glass of wine on the spacious deck looking out to sea was a pleasure indeed.

Lovely building full of character and interesting décor. Joy was very welcoming, informative and helpful and even gave us a lift into town, she also cooked a perfect breakfast. We wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely not hesitate to recommend this excellent B&B.

This is just such an amazing B and B. The whole place is full of character, including Joy. It is a delight to come here and a special place to celebrate special occasions. The views are amazing and we really enjoyed the Bass strait suite. See you again soon!
