We stayed here for one night before Christmas and really enjoyed it so we booked 3 rooms for 3 nights to meet up with family over Easter. Roger is welcoming, helpful and ready to chat but not intrusive in any way. We felt as though we were staying in a private home - large sitting room with a bay window... More

Host Roger does everything right to make the stay great. Lots of service extras to make this a great place to stay. Excellent breakfast served at times that allowed me to enjoy the meal but still make my work commitments on time.Nicely furnished room. For a good night's sleep I like a quiet location with heavy curtains to keep out... More

From the moment we walked into the B&B I felt we were staying at a friends, the welcome and hospitality was fantastic. How often do you get told there is white wine and beer in fridge and red and sherry over there help yourself?? At Lorelei B&B you do plus Roger throws in Cheese and nibbles. The building is very...

Beautifully kept accomodation. The host was so welcoming and helpful. We asked him for a restaurant recommendation and it was spot on for our needs. The room was perfect (we had the 4 poster bed), clean and we were offered lots of extras included in the price e.g. Beer, wine cheese & biscuits, fruit, wi-fi, Foxtel. I think hotels need... More

Wow!!! where do we start??? From the moment we arrived with my 78 year old mother, Roger made us feel right at home. The atmosphere in this 100 year old place is just amazing. We rented 2 of the rooms and were totally blown away! From the period furniture, to the curtains, timber floors and roof trimmings and the beautiful... More

The front drinks/ sitting room provides a great spot to stop and relax whilst sitting in front of the window taking the rays in. The breakfast included sufficed however would recommend to try...

In every detail Roger, our host, gave us a memorable stay. The accommodation far exceeds expectations, the welcome is warm and friendly and the extra touches are delightful surprises. Congratulations, Roger, and lucky Portland, having such a splendid B & B.

Unfortunately ,we could only stay one night! it is a well run B&B with large rooms, very clean, a friendly and informative host, who looks after his guests in a kind way. It's a stone's throw from the centre of the town, close to a few restaurants and bars and in a quiet street, so a good night's sleep is... More

I had high expectations after reading the reviews & lorelei exceeded them. Everything was thought of- electric blankets, spring water, espresso coffee, newspapers in the breakfast room, range of complementary beverages, hair dryer, some foxtel channels, stuff that you would expect of a boutique 5 star hotel all with the warmth of the owner Roger who was happy to help...
