Beautifully restored cottage with a huge comfortable bed and good heating in the separate areas. The rooms can be rented separately but my wife and I were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves which made this a great experience for us. If we had been sharing it definitely would have felt like a B&B experience because of the... More

Our travel agent booked us in for our discovery tour of Australia. We were absolutely stunned by the beauty of the room and the location. Nicely restored old building with furniture and decoration fitting into the historical context. The kitchen and living room are well equipped and fit for a longer stay (we only had one night). The staff was... More

We came over from the US to participate in the Whaleboat Championship Races on 16Feb14 and we stayed in the Lodge for 6 days. The moment that we walked in it felt like we had come home. It was wonderful, three bedrooms, each with its own bath and a shared kitchen-living area that was just cozy! There is a covered... More

Flagstaff Hill Lighthouse Lodge is a well renovated home with three guest rooms, ensuite and kitchen area. It was our second one night stay at the lodge and the rooms are big, nicely decorated and very well maintained and clean with polished wood floors and comfortable beds. It feels like your own house with BBQ and outdoor area. Wireless internet... More

The Lighthouse Lodge is actually a house with three bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. You'll need to register and pick up your keys close by at the more modern facility just up the hill, where you'll also find Pippies By the Bay, an excellent restaurant (see my separate review).

Thank you for the review.

There was a group of us touring Australia, so the Lighthouse Lodge was a great place for us to stay as we booked the entire house. The sleeping rooms and bathrooms are wonderful, and the kitchen and lounge room are spacious and inviting. We only stayed one night, but wish we could have stayed longer.

We weren't quite sure what to expect of the lighthouse lodge but we had an excellent one night stay on the end of our Great Ocean road drive. The small lodge has three rooms, beautifully decorated with interesting pictures of the lighthouse history. The kitchen area is a plus, the whole building having been sensitively restored. A great stay.
