Wish I had stayed here for more than one night! The whole building had a gorgeous vintage feel - old style fridge, couches, bed and even a claw foot bath! It waa the little things that made it a great stay; complimentary biscuits and port, a wide range of teas, books to read and dvds to watch. I highly recommend... More

Many thanks to Mark (the Owner of the Annesley House) for his hospitality, and helps for planning the route to Grampians :) We really enjoyed staying in this historic and cosy house. I'd say that Annesley is our new house in Portland :)

Annesley House charmed us from the first moment. However, it was upon entering the Captain's Quarters that we felt like the luckiest stowaways to ever set sail across the deep blue sea. With its lovingly decorated rooms, complete with themed curios that both thrilled and delighted our salty souls, we immediately felt at home, and poured ourselves healthy portions of... More

We really enjoyed staying in this old house. We were in the 2 bedroom cottage at the back which had its own kitchen/dining room, lounge room and even its own garden. It's the kind of place where you can have a glass of port before going to bed, with the port and glasses provided! Our host brought us freshly baked... More

What a wonderful place... helpful hosts and a gorgeous little dog! We stayed in the Honeymoon suite and loved it! Loved the quirky bathroom and super comfy bed! Great location - ideal for a pit stop en route to Great Ocean Road!! Highly Recommended ;o)

We stayed in the Baytree Suite and loved the space and light. The amenities were clean and mostly functional. Our host, Mark, gave us pudding and strawberries and assisted whenever we had a question. We loved the historical features, especially the clawfoot bath. The beds were comfortable and the dogs were cheeky and protective of their territory. Looking forward to... More

We stayed here on the final leg of a Great Ocean Road trip. Truly unique gem of hotel. So many things to say but I won't because you need to have the surprise and wow factor this wonderful old girl will give you.

Stayed at annelsey house for 1 night in November. What a neat place, it felt like you were stepping back in time whilst still having all the mod cons. Tea selection and free port were a lovely added touch. Highly recommended if your staying in Portland!

What a pleasure to arrive in Portland to find this delightful house. Renovated with great attention to detail our group wandered around each of the sitting rooms to find the historical artefacts and read the story of Dr Brewer the original owner. We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment, with a kitchen with all items necessary plus a few luxury... More

My husband and I stayed one night in October 2014 in the BayTree Room at Annesley House in Portland. It was a lovely place to stay. The room was very tastefully furnished and decorated and had everything we needed. The 'piece de resistance' was the amazing bathroom with a huge old cast-iron bath which was just the thing to relax... More
