We visited this B&B in August and found it to be clean and close to the beach, shops, eateries and the Visitor's Centre, which were all within easy walking distance. The reception staff members were excellent as is the most adequate breakfast served in a very pleasant breakfast room. Our room was a good size and nice to return to... More

We booked for one night but on arrival decided to make it two. Our terrace unit was very comfortable, and the price included breakfast - a bonus. The receptionist was lovely and very accommodating, nothing was any trouble. The owners are lucky to have her as the face of their property.

We stayed in the Nor East for 2 nights during our trip to the Great Ocean Road. The room was very spacious with a giant bathtub right in the middle, you can have a bath and watch a movie at the same time - can't ask for more than that on a miserable rainy day! Bath towels were luxurious and... More

Stayed here in August 2014. Nice room, warm and cosy. Good location. The poor young girl who welcomes you also cooked our (and many others) breakfasts. She is amazing with her work load. Cannot really fault this B & B.

Forget the formal reviews - the rooms at Captain's are 5 star, easily eclipsing Park Hyatt and Hilton in Melbourne. We had one of the top rooms in the main building and couldn't have been more impressed. Staff are warm and friendly. Will definitely be back.

We stayed here for one night, for a weekend getaway (my partner actually proposed to me on the night we stayed here). We thought is was great value for money, facilities were fantastic and central to town.

Great place to stay when exploring the Great Ocean Road. We have no negative things to say at all about this place. Highly recommended for anyone who needs a place to stay in this area. Located 2 mins walk from the beach.

Stayed in the “Cottage”. We really enjoyed our stay here. Very friendly and professional staff. Parking was right at our door and there was a nice little court yard attached to the room. Had a queen size bed which was very comfortable. It was a large sized room with a large separate bathroom. The bathroom was really quite luxurious and... More

Our room was nicely furnished and spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. The fitout is modern which we liked. The breakfast room is nice and light and spacious. Not right on the beach but only five minutes walk to beach and main street.

We stayed here to break our trip up for great ocean road. Staff were very nice. The room we booked got a little mixed up but we got a complimentary breakfast and a bottle of wine. The cottage we got was very comfy and perfect just for the two of us!! We weren't there much as we wanted to get... More
