Nelson's Perch is located a good 5 minutes walk from the main through road, but it is an advantage as the neighbourhood s quiet at night. We stayed for two nights while exploring the Great Ocean Road. Our room was the middle one. As indicated y others, rooms are relatively small, but are very comfortable, and the shower is great....

We enjoyed one night at Nelson's Perch and were not disappointed. The room is relatively small but just lovely- especially with the sun shining in from the small patio. It is within easy walking distance of the town. We were very pleased with the "common area" and were able to keep some wine in the fridge for a drink later... More

This is BnB accommodation in the old school, and it does it well. The room is small but clean and comfortable, with an enclosed patio outside. All three rooms back onto each other. Our room had a spa, but we didn't use it. The lounge and breakfast area is cafe-style, with each room allocated its own table. We were fortunate... More

We stayed two nights. We received a warm welcome and many indications on the various possibilities in Apollo Bay and around. The room was very nice and perfect. We wished we could have stayed longer. The breakfast was so arranged that we could meet the owner and the other persons staying.

This B&B is situated a comfortable walking distance back from the main street of Apollo Bay. The owner Wayne is very friendly and helpful. There are three double rooms each with it's own ensuite and a lovely lounge/breakfast area on the ground floor. The complimentary port and chocolates are a nice touch. The owners live upstairs. The arrangement is quite... More

Very comfortable stay in a quiet and private room. The owner was very friendly. The port was a nice touch. Definitely one of the better B+Bs that we have stayed in. Will be back in the future - may be for the Great Ocean Road marathon.

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
