“Friendliest hosts you could ever hope to have!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

What a gorgeous villa. We wanted somewhere we could take our dog, Milly, and she could be inside with us. From the moment we arrived we were welcome. Richard and Diane, our hosts, were warm friendly beautiful people. We feasted on an amazing breakfast of the most AMAZING fruit salad we have ever eaten, croissants, bread, cereals, yoghurt etc. We walked along the beach from Point Lonsdale to Queenscliff, did a bit of sightseeing and walked back. If you ever going to Point Lonsdale, stay here, you won't regret it!!

Richard is a very friendly and welcoming host, astute to the needs of his guests.

Roseneath is centrally located in Point Lonsdale. It is a spacious B&B with a very English "feeling" (from our UK experience/point of view), with a pretty and beautifully maintained private garden. The generous amenities (including a vast variety of teas and coffee) are available all day. We also enjoyed meeting Maddie the resident dog.

My husband and I would be happy to revisit Roseneath in the future.

We booked late in the day on our way over on the ferry and arrived 20 mins later, but it was no problem for our lovely hosts Richard & Diane. A private entrance through the manicured garden and bbq area leading to french doors opening to the most beautifully furnished room with massive open fireplace, open stairway to bedrooms and spa bathroom. Every detail was immaculate, the selection of teas and hot beverages stunning. But the best was the home made fruit salad at breakfast, served by Richard, made by Diane. We are not usually B & B people but this experience has changed our view. It was just perfect. Definately has that wow factor.

I have stayed in B&Bs and self-contained accommodations in London, Wales, Perth and now, Melbourne. I must say that Roseneath B&B truly lives up to the reviews you read in Tripadvisor and elsewhere. Seriously, its own website doesn't do justice to what it actually offers. You need to step inside to see the love and dedication put into the place, something we don't feel in many other accommodations.

Our family had the entire place to ourselves and we thoroughly enjoyed the place so much that the children preferred to stay in than to go out touring. Our apologies to Richard and Diana that the children were still excitedly running about in the house late into the night!

The fruit salad was really one of a kind. We always finished up every single bit no matter how full we already were! The one we had in our 5-star hotel in the city couldn't even come close in comparison. Richard and Diana were really warm and friendly, unlike others I encountered who merely rented the place to you and then disappeared until it's time to check-out. We really felt we were staying IN a home instead of staying AT a place. It's a pity we couldn't stay longer because of our travelling plans. I seldom do recommendations, but this time, I brought back Roseneath B&B's postcards and namecards to give to my friends.

Thank you Richard and Diana for the very memorable stay. Roseneath B&B will certainly be our first option should we visit the area again. :o)

There are good B&Bs and then there is Roseneath.....we found Roseneath Villa to be a perfect combination of a B&B and a fully equiped holiday apartment. The accomodation is in a private wing of the home, with its own entry, yard/BBQ/outdoor eating area, dining, lounge, kitchen bedrooms and bathroom. I am often disappointed when travelling with the description kitchenette, where you just find a microwave and nothing else. Here there is micro, oven, hotplates, electric frypan, sandwich maker and enough pots/bowls/cuterlry/crockery for a master chef. So if you want to cook some lunch or dinner you wont be left wanting. This is on top of the fact a wonderful breakfast is included each morning. Cereals, freshly made porridge, juice, yummy fresh fruit salad and much more. We had one very rainy day, but had a hot spa bath, watched one of the provided DVDs and played scrabble, also found in the lounge. There is also a huge amount of reading material provided. Roseneath is just a 10minute stroll to the local shops. Our hosts Richard and Diana were gracious and charming and very helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to enjoy the Bellarine

Di and Richard were the perfect hosts. A tour on entry, tips for local eateries and a driveway send-off! Nothing was too much trouble.

The property was spotless, comfortable and homely with a delightfully manicured, fully fenced garden. It had an amazing collection of reading material and an an equally extensive tea collection to suit.

We chose Roseneath for it's location and dog friendliness. Zoomi, our whippet, had a ball with the resident Jack Russell, Maddie. There is some great dog beaches nearby and many cafes cater for pooches.

Highlight of the stay was the comprehensive breakfast. A first class fruit salad packed with berries, melon balls and tropical fruits, was topped with fresh flowers and dusted with icing sugar. The traditional oats were delicious and warming was a big spoonful of honey. It was hard to fit in the toasts, croissants, freshly squeezed orange juice and yoghurt. Phew...

A friend and I caught up in Point Lonsdale for the weekend to spend some time together on a girls weekend. Richard and Di looked after us like Princesses! The accommodation was wonderful and Di's fruit salad more than met up to the high expectations we had before arriving! The gardens are lovely - a testament to Di's hard work, and it was nice to have a furry belly to scratch in the mornings. Thank you for a fantastic weekend, we will definitely be back. We may even let the boys come next time!
