Self-contained apartments, beautifully renovated and each with private outdoor patios. We stayed in the 'Housekeeper's' rooms, which sleeps up to 5 in two comfortable bedrooms, living room, open plan kitchen and diner and shower room. Basic kitchen equipment provided to enable self catering, or breakfast packs can be ordered by the previous day. Excellent touches were the high quality tea... More

We stayed here for one night whilst driving through to Adelaide and we could not fault the place. The host (Mark I believe?) was incredibly welcoming from the moment we arrived, he was very informative and let us know about all of the local attractions. We were shown to the Baytree room and it was perfect. The whole property has... More

We stayed a night in the housekeepers cottage at the rear of the property that comfortably sleeps six. There were three of us so no fights for the bathroom. The property has been lovingly restored and much of the furniture in the place is antique or gives the lovely old world feel to the place. The plunger coffee, the high... More

We really loved this place - a one night stop between Adelaide and Melbourne. It is one of the most stylish and comfortable places we have ever stayed - a lovely blend of old and new. We had the honeymoon suite and the three person suite next door (with one bed on an ex-veranda) and both were lovely. We also... More

We visited Portalnd for a wedding and stayed in the Captains Room - management was kind enough to organise early check in so we could get ready for the weeding. The room was clean and neat and beautifully restored with a claw foot bath in the bathroom. We didn't get to spend too much time in the room but the... More

We are on our way from Adelaide towards the Great Ocean Road, staying here for one night in Rosalie's Retreat, one of the 4 upstairs self-contained apartments in this charming 1878-built house, transformed by the owner's loving restoration into a delightful place to spend the night (or longer). The house is well place on the top of the hill in... More

This is a beautiful old property that is undergoing restoration. More like a B&B without the breakfast than a traditional hotel. We stayed in the Baytree room and it was delightful. The room was large and comfortable and quite well priced for what you got - a small kitchen for self catering, a lounge area, another small bedroom for a... More

In Feb. 2015 we went on a little road trip to escape our busy lifestyle. Once again Trip Advisor came to our rescue and we decided to try Annesley House. As we entered our room we certainly enjoyed a little WOW factor. We only stayed the one night and were perfectly satisfied with our value for money. Would definitely recommend.
