Friendly hosts. Had a great time there with the family. We stayed in the Sandstone suite and found and it really comfortable. The kids really enjoyed the room and did not want to leave. Will definitely stay there again.

Upon arrival we had a lovely chat with Ross and Ophelia (the owners) and Ross was kind enough to give us a tour and explain some of the magnificent workmanship of the buildings on the property which are sure to give you the wow factor. The stay was very comfortable with all amenities, a breath taking view and wonderful staff.... More

This has to win the prize for the worst b & b I've ever been to and I've been to A LOT (even overseas!) The place is old and tacky and attached to the owner's residence. The owner is creepy and rude and extremely 'tight'!! Dont expect any privacy either! Make sure you book your Olinda accommodation well in advance... More

I stayed here last year with my partner. I think the website misrepresents what the accommodation is really like, which is a modest "bed and breakfast" attached to the back of someone's residence. We stayed in the "sandstone suite" which was an extension of the owner's house and right next door to their garage. We were expecting views as portrayed... More

We booked a room at the Camelot Tower and Penthouse at Olinda. Vic . Australia, for a 60th birthday weekend away.  Due to a misunderstanding (the website and booking docket were seriously unclear), we we put into the Balinese Sandstone Suite (The name being a grouse exaggeration.) instead of the Camelot tower.  Ross, the owner showed us around, pointing out...

If you want a great deal, awesome service and a wonderful location I can't recommend anything better than Camelot Tower and Penthouse. Ofelia will take you through some of the history of the place explain about the rooms and showed us Ross' wonderful craftsmanship. We felt very welcomed, the Sandstone suite which we stayed in was spacious and we did... More

It was horrific - Where to start, the drive into the property - it looks like a converted railway station, and not in a good way. My jaw dropped when I saw where we would be staying (would not have stayed had my other half not booked as a birthday suprise) We entered thro a scruffy under cover carport, with... More

My husband and I had a staff function to attend in the Dandenongs so rather than drive back home late at night we would spend the night. We chose this place as it was close to our function. Even though the accommodation was beautiful there were faults and issues. One we were attached to the house the owners lived in,... More

Stayed in the Sandstone apartment. Ofelia made us feel so welcome. It has all the little extras in the pantry and only a five minute walk to the pub and restaurants. The craftsmanship of the wood carvings are really remarkable and so much room for families. The large spa bath was great. Lovely breakfast in the morning.

Very disappointed with this one. Used Qantas points to book this ( lots of them) and it was really dated and tired. Clean but not pleasant. Bathroom in dire need of updating. Everything dowdy and faded. Not in the least romantic. Breakfast was inedible. Bacon couldn't even be cut with a knife. And it was cold and tasteless. Overall very... More
