This is a very good, purpose built B&B. Guests’ rooms are on the ground floor, whilst the owners, Gabrielle and Wayne, live on the first floor. The rooms with en-suites are modern, clean and well-maintained, but they are not large. This is because there is a very comfortable guest lounge and large kitchen with tables on the ground floor, which... More

We were made most welcome on arrival by Wayne. This very clean custom built B & B was a very comfortable stay. The room was a little on the small size but more than adequate. The personal room terrace was very good for relaxing with a glass of wine and the continental breakfasts were good. Recommended for a short stay

We stayed with Wayne for two nights over a long weekend. Wayne greeted us and showed us our room and answered any questions we had. This is a purpose built B&B and it has been well designed. The room had everything you would need along with bathroom products. The terrace area off the bedroom was great for enjoying evening wine... More

Had a lovely one night stay at Nelson's Perch while passing through Apollo Bay on our Great Ocean Road road trip. The welcome we received from Wayne was great, and we had a lovely dinner after he recommended a restaurant. Spent a lovely evening sat in out private garden drinking wine - very nice peaceful setting. Breakfast the following morning... More

My honey and I stayed one night at Nelson's Perch B & B in Apollo Bay, Victoria in their very clean spa suite. The owners are charming and dedicated to their guests having a comfortable stay. Excellent wifi, a continental breakfast with homemade muffins, yogurt, fruit juice, and drinks is included in the rate. Upon arrival we were even offered... More

We stayed two nights in January 2014. It is a small purpose built, spotlessly clean, bed and breakfast establishment with first class ground floor accommodation with superior fittings, bedding etc. Our room was great but rather compact with two suitcases to manage. There is a large kitchen area for guests to make hot or cold drinks anytime and for the... More

Nelson's Perch is a perfect little bed and breakfast stop situated on the edge of the town of Apollo Bay ideal for a night stop over when touring the Great Ocean Road. It is a small purpose built property with just three guest rooms and a shared lounge/dining room, the owner lives on the premises and is charming. The room... More

Stayed during heatwave and got full benefit from aircon. Best quality accommodation in a modern building with a shared lounge. Good bed with spa bath though only used the shower. The rooms each have a private out door seating area. Relaxed host who is attentive and helpful. With three rooms it is not impersonal and enables a frindly conversation over... More

We stayed here as another stopover on our gentle drive along the southern ocean road. We were delighted to have chosen this place. Wayne offered us a warm welcome and showed us to our comfortable, clean and well appointed room. Outside the room was a lovely courtyard garden sitting area that, had we had the opportunity, looked to be a... More

We stayed for 2 nights while on our journey of The GOR. Wayne is a great host and our room was meticulously clean and comfortable; and we enjoyed the outside patio off our room. I have two small criticisms to make considering the cost for this accommodation - the room is very small with nowhere to open our suitcase except... More
