Arrived late and owner had prepared our rooms by leaving lights on and a welcoming warm fire for us. Rooms were very comfortable, books, games music & DVDs were also supplied. We enjoyed sitting in the verandah admiring the garden. Robe House is a short walk from the marina. The breakfast provisions were very good. Staff were very friendly.

We were passing through on a drive from Melbourne to Adelaide and stopped in at the local tourist information centre and they told us about Robe House. What a find. It is one of the most charming places we have ever stayed in. Like I said in the heading 'a real hidden gem'. The owner was most charming and helpful.... More

Hi Michael, thanks for your review of Apartment 4 at Robe House. This is our largest apartment and quite spacious especially for a quick overnight stay. We try to provide everything (within reason!) that our guests could need during their stay, and are glad that you enjoyed discovering a little bit of Robe history in Robe House!

This was a 1 night stay with friends enroute to Melbourne. Extremely comfortable rooms, well equipped with food supplies and laundry facilities. We had a BBQ in the small garden at the rear of the property. The hosts were around in the morning. Everything done on trust. Perfect!

Hi Mazdamal, thank you for taking the time to review Robe House. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. On some occasions we don't meet our guests in the evening - most often this is due to us calling in when our guests are out, however we do make ever effort to catch up, even... More

The house built for the governor in colonial times is now converted to a hotel. Typical australian style, with a well-equipped kitchen for self-made breakfast, eggs by courtesy of the management. Very quiet surroundings, a short walk away from the center and the sea. Beautiful wooden floor and furniture, nice bathroom and ample room for living.

Robe House's Victoria Cottage is a lovely old limestone cottage in the centre of Robe. Robe is full of historic old cottages and other buildings so it was nice to be staying in one of them. It was very clean and well set-up with everything you'd need. We were only staying overnight but it would be perfect for a little... More

Hi Louise, thank you for your review of Victoria Cottage. Robe is very fortunate that most of the old stone buildings from the 1800's still stand - it gives the town a real sense of history. We have tried to preserve a piece of that history in Victoria Cottage which was an original settlers cottage built in the mid 1800's,... More

This is a delightful little place in the equally charming seaside town of Robe. Check-in is unusual if you arrive after 5pm but it works. The room is a decent size and has an old-fashioned cast- iron bed frame. It looked rather lumpy but was actually very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. There is a fridge, oven... More

Hi Hevsy, thanks for your review of Robe House - we are really glad that you enjoyed your stay in Robe's oldest house.

Finding places of historical interest in Australia isn’t easy. So for anyone who wants to touch the past in a comfortable way Robe House is special. The home of the earliest governors of the region you can still close your eyes and imagine what it may have been like a couple of hundred years ago. I did find myself laying... More

Victoria Cottage on Robe's high street couldn't be more central. Robe isn't exactly a teaming metropolis although in the summer I'm guessing that its population grows significantly. We were travelling between Adelaide and Melbourne and were looking for somewhere peaceful to spend a couple of days relaxing. The arrangements for our arrival were exactly as we had agreed with Andrew... More

Thanks for your review of Victoria Cottage. While the cottage is quite separate to Robe House, it is also an original old stone building but is situated in Robe's main street. It is a great location for parking the car and just walking the town on foot, as everything is right at your door step. We are really glad that... More

Robe House is very different, it is almost like stepping back in time. We found it very comfortable, continental breakfast was already in the fridge, large warm bathroom and close to the town where there were plenty of eating places. It made a refreshing change to staying in chain hotels.

Hi Lynda, thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Robe House. As the oldest house in Robe, it is fair to say that the old place is unique, and quite different. It is also fair to say that some love that aspect, and some do not!! Thanks again for sharing your views. Best wishes, Andrew and Sally More

Despite being a heritage place, Robe House's rooms are dark and uninviting. Plus Robe itself is a sleepy place and it was hard to find a restaurant, I mean a true one, not just fast food. We also had noisy neighbours and could hear their conversation though the walls, romantic, well not really.
