Nelson's Perch is set in a perfect location within easy walking distance to town. We were warmly greeted by Wayne who immediately made us feel at home and helped us with recommendations for dinner. The whole house was spotlessly clean, we had a beautiful room with a large well equipped bathroom plus we had the added benefit of a private... More

Great location for the start of our GOR road trip. Wayne was very welcoming and the room spotless. The kitchen and dining area is very comfortable with a nice continental breakfast in the morning. It's only a 5 minute walk to the town centre and in good position to appreciate the countryside. Overall definitely worth a visit.

Wayne was a friendly, helpful host. The room was excellent room with private patio. The communal area for the three rentable rooms was very comfortable. The B&B was within walking distance to all the action of town and beach. I would recommend Nelson's Perch to anyone.

We booked this b&b on the basis of high Trip Advisor ratings, we were disappointed. The 'De Luxe' room was very small with little space to move around and hardly any storage. Our biggest dissapointment however was the owners asking during breakfast whether we wanted our room serviced. At $210 per night for a very small room we most certainly... More

We are extremely disappointed in this review,the use of intimidation is a very strong word,and we pride ourselves on being friendly and helpful. We also pride ourselves on our service and the reason we ask before servicing rooms is to respect guests privacy. The use of the word intimidation is highly inappropriate and we take homage to the use of... More

We stayed in this lovely b&b for one night. Our host was really warm and welcoming. The room was clean and well equipped. We also had a nice little patio to enjoy our time in Apollo Bay. The shared spaces were nice and spatious and offered information of the surroundings and even some chocolate and wine. It is easy to... More

We stayed here 2 nights (26-27 November) while exploring the great ocean road. Comfortable ensuite with a private patio. Friendly and informative host who welcomed us with port and sweets in a pleasant lounge. Yummy continental breakfast in the morning. We could walk to the shore and restaurants from the house. Easy B&B to find and to stay. We would... More

A warm and friendly greeting from the host - Wayne. A very fresh, modern, well priced B&B compared to others in Apollo Bay. Purpose built not so long ago in a suburban street; fresh white walls with beautiful timber floor boards; each room has a small private & leafy garden - facing west so it was pleasantly sunny for evening...

We spent one night here on our way down the Great Ocean Road, and can't recommend it enough. The room we had was gorgeous - impeccably clean, with lovely little private garden area, very comfy bed, and big shower. Our room was the one in the back, and had a double shower.

What a lovely find. A real eye for detail and immaculately presented. Our room was lovely, complete with double shower. The host did everything to keep us happy while not intrusive. Breakfast set us up for a great day on the road. Strong recommend.

We stayed one night in this very comfortable and friendly B&B. Everything was very fresh, crisp and clean and close enough to walk into the town. Lovely relaxed breakfast. Good selection of books and tourists guides. Nice garden with a warning of an old Koala that might visit during the night but unfortunately he didn't. We managed to leave somethings... More
