Lovely quirky rooms and a very helpful and accommodating host. We arrived a little late and requested a room change to one that would better suit our bub. Nothing was a problem. Loved the old style bath.

We stayed in the Wadmore room. This was quirky but very nice. The bed was very comfortable and the period furnishings were very well suited to the room. Mark was a very nice host ably assisted by his long haired dachshund. The location was great, right in the centre of town. The little extras such as special tea, biscuits and... More

If you like quirky without comfort, then this 'honeymoon suite' is for you. A weird bath and basin stuck in the corner of the bedroom, with absolutely nowhere to even place a toothbrush let alone a makeup bag, is just one thing. Not even a bedside table for a book, or clock, or glass of whatever takes your fancy. Yes,... More

Annesley House is a really special place, with an unique story going back to 1878. Your stay will also be special, and probably more interesting if you like old buildings with a stories to tell. I'm sure your host, Mark, will be happy to tell Annesley's secrets. We stayed for one night in Dr. Brewer's apartment which was both very... More

This is really enjoyable stay. The location, decoration and the people are really good. We just passby the town and from google to pick up this hotel, but this is really good decision. Expect to come here again.

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.

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!

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?
