We stayed for 2 nights at Casa Favilla in January as part of a trip down the Great Ocean Road and I'm glad we stumbled on this gem of a place. From the moment we walked through the door we felt welcome and were both put out by how much thought had gone into making our stay a good one-... More

Room was immaculate with a lovely bathroom and garden terrace bit Yes the breakfast was self serve and I see where people are coming from with lack of hot food. But I also like the self serve thing. Quite relaxed,... More

Shower clean, bed comfortable, and reasonably quiet. Breakfast self serve from a quite well stocked kitchen. No cooked foods but... More

Having recently stayed at Casa Favilla B & B I would like to comment on a few things that could be improved upon. Casa Favilla is advertised and priced as a B& B. Despite being very well presented and having a pleasant ambience we were disappointed. Our bathroom had not been properly ( definite evidence in the shower recess) cleaned... More

My partner and I stayed at Casa Favilla during our Great Ocean Road trip. Gerard, the host, was very helpful and welcoming. The house and the appartments are very tastefully decorated, you feel at home the moment you open the door for the first time. The breakfast is basic (you just help yourself in the kitchen, there's toast, spreads, cereal),... More

My husband and I stayed at Casa Favilla very disappointed. We were greeted by our host on arrival on a very cold wintry and windy day in June 2014 to a cold house, no heating had been put on for our arrival although we had booked a month prior and spoken to the owner whilst driving there. The host was... More

When I rang to inquire about staying in this location, the phone was answered by someone who could not even be bothered to go and get the 'book' and check if the dates I wanted were available. Quote: "I'm no-where near the book at the moment. If you send me an email I MIGHT look at it, but nah, am... More

Extremely neat and tidy B&B, tastefully decorated with a modern feel. Stayed in the small green room, but quite adequate for our needs on a one night visit. Overlooked a nice garden setting. A short stroll into the centre of town. Continental breakfast of good quality and choice Gerard was very helpful and obviously enjoys having visitors. Only downside was... More

The owner is very friendly. We had a lovely stay with our one year old baby. He provided a cot which helps us a lot. The backroom is like a studio, has everything you need. The breakfast is simple but was good enough. The only bad side I would say is the cleanness of the floor as the owner is... More

We booked this B&B the morning of our trip driving through the Great Ocean Road. We chose somewhere halfway and this suited perfectly. The owner was very welcoming and friendly.
