This B and B is well worth it. Big enough rooms, comfy bed, tv and a lovely bathroom ( with double shower!). Everything was nicely decorated and very clean and comfortable. Guest lounge area which we used and a nice continental breakfast provided with some variety each day. Owners are there but unobtrusive, but lovely to chat to as well.... More

Firstly, Apollo Bay is a pretty seaside town. I stayed 1 night on a road trip via the great ocean road. I am not sure exactly what the target market is for this place. The bed and breakfast is a purpose build house for 3 guest rooms and the hosts. There is a common area of lounging around and a... More

We had a very comfortable nights stay here off season. The room was clean and attractive with a nice private outdoor area where we had a nice beer in the sunshine. Double shower was awesome, if only we could have one at home! The communal lounge area is very welcoming with a good selection if teas and some nice chocolate... More

We had a very comfortable stay at this purpose-built B&B which is organized with guests downstairs and owners upstairs. With this setup, the hosts are inconspicuous but are available if needed via an intercom. Our deluxe room had a high ceiling which made it feel quite spacious and the ensuite bathroom was equipped with a large shower. The private courtyard... More

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and myself stayed the evening of the 3 June 2014. We were meet at the door by the owner who gave us a tour of our rooms and the facilities available. The hosts were fantastic, friendly and full of information about the local area. They were kind enough to recommend local restaurants for dinner that evening.... More

We really enjoyed our stay with Wayne at the Perch! We actually were the only guests so it was like living in our own duplex. Comfortable room with courtyard ( we need to return in summer to get more use) huge ensuite with great shower and a dream kitchen and living area. Kudos for the filtered coffee each day. Apollo...

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
