We are a family of four from Switzerland who spent one night at Annesley House. We found it through Lonely Planet. Very clean, comfortable, friendly & very professional owner. Home made liquor superb. We could have easily stayed much longer if we had the time. we strongly recommend Annesley House. Rea, Irene, Stephanie and Panos

We enjoyed staying in Rosalie's Retreat and stepping back in time, learning the history with all the cosy comforts. Filled with lovely antiques and included is a claw foot bath which I made good use of. Annesley House was a welcome rest after driving the GOR. I It was extremely clean and had all we needed, toasty heaters and and... More

We stayed here one night on our GOR trip and really enjoyed the suite. Big room with TV, little kitchenette, nice beds and beautiful ensuite bathroom with big bath. Little extra bedroom/ sitting area off the kitchen. I particularly remember the great tea that was available, forgot the brand but it was very good!

Thank you so much for your kind words. The tea we use is called tease company is located in Melbourne, it is not cheap but very good quality. I hate insipid tea bags, I think if you are going to drink tea drink nice tea. More

We loved it here and I could have happily moved in! We chose "Rosalie's Retreat" apartment and it was just lovely. The attention to detail the current owners have made in relation to fixtures and fittings is excellent. We loved the feel of the place, it was clean and comfortable with everything catered for. I loved the selection of teas,... More

Lovely overnight stay at Annesley House in early Feb 2014. The whole place is quite unusual but oozes charm and character. If you are tired of the boring motels on the Great Ocean road then you should stop here?

We spent 2 nights in this lovingly restored house. Mark, the owner, has put such care into all the detail, an eclectic and quirky mix of antique and vintage furnishings, with all modern conveniences as well. Central location with restaurants and pubs nearby. Lots to see and do, maritime museum, WW2 lookout tower, cliff walks, tram ride, and lovely little... More

We had a nice stay at Annesley House. We received a friendly welcome by Mark and his cute dog and we stayed in a lovely big room (with port). If you fancy seeing wildlife (we hadn't seen much yet at that point) ask Mark and he can tell you the exact places to spot animals!

If you have to stay in Portland, for whatever reason, stay at Annesley House. Simple. Don't stay anywhere else! We turned up having driven a good crack of the Great Ocean Road and then the A1, it was baking hot and Mark and his wife were busy tending to the property, one inside, one outside. We popped around the back... More

Loved this place! Amazing history and the owner have kept the history alive for all to enjoy! We stayed in dr brewers rooms, from the claw foot bath to the medicine bottles on display it was all great! Even the complementary items were of a higher class than most. Port, local cookies, and the bathroom supplys were more what you... More

Right from the word "Go" as you walked through the front door, you could feel a great ambience about Annesley House. We were greeted by Mark's son who took us upstairs to the "Captain's Quarters". He explained the history of Annesley House and how his father painstakingly went about refurbishing the rooms and his searches to find the right décor... More
