B&B's are always unpredictable. They aren't sterile motels they are idiosyncratic which makes them an interesting experience. Rodondo is no exception. Yes, it is dog friendly. Yes the owner is chatty - but in a nice way (I mean we are staying in her home!). The accommodation in the main residence is very nice and good value. The motels in... More

I stayed in Uncle Buck's cottage which was really quaint with an eclectic mix of decor. At a cost of $95 a night, it was great value for money. Susan, the owner, was very accommodating and although the cottage was next to the laundry, this wasn't an issue as the usage was minimal and negotiable. Very relaxing place to stay... More

Stayed in Uncle Buck’s cabin. Some have said it is cozy! It is small!! And although the photos tend to indicate they are separate cabins, it shares a common thin timber wall (s?) with the next cabin. Privacy and noise concerns. Be aware it also shares a wall with the complex’s laundry! Very cramped toilet and bathroom. Very small basin.... More

Hi pakdaz, and thank you for your comments. Firstly, we aim to please! Any concerns that are brought to my attention will be addressed, asap. Uncle Buck’s Cabin is the smallest of our accommodation, as well as the cheapest. I would have happily upgraded you, either when you arrived, or at any time during your stay, had you advised me...

This place is so well looked after and it shows. We stayed in a room inside the main house and it has all the charm of an old Victorian House. The hallway has many antiques to look at and some for sale, as well as other handmade goods for sale, which makes it interesting to look around. The whole place... More

Port Albert is small and quiet, lucky to find this excellent traditional B&B , we had a room overlooking the water. The extra 10USD for breakfast is a bargain. Magnificent home cooked full breakfast served in the house kitchen with the other guests. Lovely host, impossible to fault. Right opposite is a really good cafe / restaurant with very good... More

This is the second time we've stayed here. Both rooms were clean and modern, with a touch of local character. The boat room is self catering with a cool little mezzanine bed with a ladder up to it. I highly recommend you include the big breakfast.. delicious! If you get a chance, try the Custom House Inn for dinner/lunch. Great... More

This was the first stop on our road trip from Melbourne to Sydney. We chose the place based on overall good reviews, and the actual experience even exceeded our already high expectations. I think I need not repeat all the positive stuff said by other reviewers, it is just enough to say that it all fits well with our own... More

We stayed at Rodondo in December as one of the stops on our scenic drive from Melbourne to Sydney. Port Albert is a lovely place and Susan made us feel welcome from the outset. The room was comfortable, light and airy and the breakfast delicious. Recommended.

My sister and I unexpectedly visited Port Albert and were lucky enough to find a room in at the Redondo and meet the delightful Sue. A great dinner on the wharf and a delicious country breakfast at Sue's table made for a delightful stay. Highly recommended.

The weather was looking average for a planned weekend of camping at Wilsons Prom so hubby booked a night at Rodondo for us and our son, along with friends and their 2 girls. I was very pleasantly surprised to stay in the main house (room 3) which was furnished with a queen bed and had a single bed (a proper... More
