Arrived late on a Friday evening to find our key cunningly tucked away on the front steps. We let ourselves in to what appeared to be an entirely deserted, largely original hallway. I loved this place: heaps of character, I really felt like I was stepping in to history. The bathrooms are pretty average but I was in Queenscliff to... More

We were the only guests on the night we stayed which was fine till everyone else (some people having a meal and a drink) disappeared off home. That was when I started to feel a bit horror filmy! The giant bunch of Lily's on the hallway table had an overwhelming smell which added to the dreamy feeling, along with the... More

This hotel has been sold, despite this our booking was accepted and we arrived to a key hidden outside under a cushion but no staff, no service, no TV or wifi, but luckily a sparse breakfast supplied by a casual worker hooked in for the two days. There was no personnel around on our departure and the owners now are... More

This place should not be charging $215.00 a night, you could do better at the backpackers. No staff no restaurant no bar, deserted run down dump, don't even consider it. amazing what they can do with a camera.

Reading the reviews and you'll get a good sense of both the good and the bad that The Queenscliff Hotel offers. We came for a quiet family overnight stay and had a pleasant experience. Yes, there's no TV or Wifi, the bar was closed, the beds were small and you couldn't walk anywhere without a giant creaking noise emanating from... More

We booked a deluxe room and got - no dining, bar or café (they closed before Christmas well before we booked), a bedroom a quarter the size of the... More

The building just ooses history. Yes the rooms are basic but comfortable and clean, upgrade to deluxe if you can. Yes, no tv's - what plus. Great comfortable sitting rooms with a wide array of reading material - choice of 3 each with their own character and ambiance. Courteous and attentive staff. Great central location. Restaurant currently closed, but staff... More

Having stayed at this spectacular boutique period hotel a couple of times over the last 20 years, it is difficult to describe the disappointment. Although warned that the bar or restaurant had closed indefinitely, we were not prepared for the bleak atmosphere of a museum. I suppose the recent death of the energetic manager explains it all. The hotel has... More

Located centrally in Queenscliff only 100metres and a Park from the beach, this classic Victorian Hotel is a charmer. Previously owned and operated by the legendry Mietta it is like walking into a time warp. The ground floor is a wonderful mix of original drawing rooms, bar and dining room. Our bedroom was neat and compact with original Victorian fittings,... More

Perfectly situated close to the beach and town - short walks to both. Loved the history of this 1887 heritage treasure with many of its original fittings & fixtures in place with modern amenities to the rooms. Beautiful great room, sitting rooms and reception with ornate floors & stained glass windows. The included breakfast was well presented in a beautiful... More
