Apollo Bay around New Year's in Australia is a heckuva place to try and find accommodations. We lucked out on this place as it was reasonably priced and with only 2 rooms, the dates just happened to work out. The owner is very sweet and gave us some great suggestions on what to do and where to eat. Breakfast each... More

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay here. We only stayed the one night as we had only decided a few weeks prior to take a trip along the great ocean road over the Easter weekend. We found it difficult to find accommodation for only one evening being the Easter weekend, but Picnics B & B was accommodating of... More

We were greeted by Glenis, our smiling hostess. Our suite was light, fresh and spotless. The en-suite also roomy and immaculate. There was a comfortable sofa for watching TV and there were quite a number of DVD's to choose from. We chose our breakfast from the menu and it arrived exactly on time after awakening from a wonderfully refreshing sleep.... More

My husband, two-year-old and I really enjoyed our stay here. I must admit we were a little dubious at first, upon discoverig that the 'B and B' is really just a pre-fab buidling in the small backyard of a suburban house, but once inside, it was lovely. Glenys has taken great care to think of a number or little conveniences... More

As advertised my accommodation is suitable for couples only therefore I do not cater for children. I always try to cater for my customers needs as best I can. More

Mrs. Sharp caters her B&B in to Victorian style houses in the back yard. It is a very nice location: close to everything and yet out of the noise from the main street. From the terrace you can see the mountain range of the national park and its only a couple of minutes to walk to the beachfront and all... More

We came across this lovely little B & B whilst travelling along the Great Ocean Road. It was recommended by the Visitors Information Centre and we certainly were not disappointed. Such a comfortable room set within the owner's garden. The owner was very friendly and helpful in recommending a good local restaurant.

We loved this SPOTLESS CLEAN place. Very nice little b&b with only 2 rooms in the garden (i don't know who said tha it has 25 rooms!) Lovely garden with flowers. Quiet area. Rooms are both big with table outside and inside. Fantastic bathroom with big shower. Good beds that warm up. Tea and coffee facilities and delicious cookies provided.... More

A lot of the places we called were totally booked due to the Apollo Bay music festival, but Picnics had a room (one out of only two total). The price was great ($115 for a Thursday, $120 for Friday and Saturday - not sure what the rate would have been if the festival hadn't been going). Upon paying when we... More

I stayed with my husband, my daughter (7 yr old) and my Mum. We were all very amazed how beautiful this B&B was. The owner paid so much attention to details that we loved both the interior and the exterior setting. Both my Mum and my daughter loved it!!! It's their first time staying in a B&B. The owner knows... More

Due to it being an Easter weekend most of the hotels and b& b's were only taking bookings for 2 or 3 nights. We were on a car tour and only needed one night. Other B&B's kept taking our booking and our visa details sending an email of confirmation and then another email saying they couldnt take the booking. Due... More
