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. Our room clean ( Red Room) with shower on suite. Very comfy bed and pillows. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room. It is situated a few minutes walk from the... More

Casa Favilla is an easy 10-15 minute walk into town. The home is on the main road, but there's no traffic after about 8pm or before 7am, so it's quiet, even if you're in the street-facing room. Continental breakfast is self-serve from the well-stocked kitchen. The weather while we were there wasn't great, but each room has a lovely outdoor... More

We checked in to Casa Favilla after a warm welcome from Gerard the property owner and manager. After a few hours, due to unforeseen circumstances we had to return home before we had a chance to use the room we had booked for the night - we checked-in and checked-out within a few hours. Gerard was most understanding and invited... More

Stayed in a self contained room at the back of the main house rather than the usual let rooms, as this was slightly larger than the other rooms which suited us as our daughter was staying with us, although the shower room was on the small size. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. Breakfast was limited to bread, juice,... More
