Ardara has an old style charm with period furniture to welcome you but thankfully has modern conveniences. we enjoyed a pleasant weekend looking over Geelong city. Maureen, complete with genuine Irish accent, welcomed us and provided a filling breakfast each morning. From there we enjoyed Geelong sites and restaurants After long days we slept well in a generous sized room....

From the moment I was greeted at the door I knew I had found a safe and friendly B&B. Upon entering I recieved a very warm welcome and there was the unmistakable odour of cinnamon wafting through the house. It was clean and uncluttered and I was introduced to other guests as I sat on the rear deck of the...

Greeted warmly with a refreshing drink and then shown to a comfortable room with all the ammenities one would want in a B and B. Breakfast was fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal and toast with all tea you can drink, delivered to us in stages at a pace that suited us.

Easy choice to come back again after I stayed here last year. So lovely to see Maureen and Owen again - like coming home:). I brought two friends with me this time who also thought I'd found a little gem. Perfect place to store our bikes safely with easy access to town in and out of the gorgeous downstairs courtyard.

We needed a one night stay in Geelong, and we could not have chosen better. I loved Maureen's down to earth Irish humour, and although she was full the night we were there, she coped admirably. Parking is great round the back of the premises, and the central position is not noisy. We found a brilliant Chinese restaurant about 3...

From the moment one opens the door and steps inside Ardara House you are transported into another time. Thoughtful touches in the rooms and throughout the house make you feel completely at home, although just a little bit Irish perhaps 😉. Comfy warm beds, own bathroom and kitchen (room 1), air conditioning and ducted heating make for a comfy stay....

A truly delightful older style home hosted by lovely couple Maureen and Owen who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The home is situated right on the edge of the centre of Geelong city, very close to every facility. and by a busy intersection but outside traffic noise was negligible and absolutely no problem. The bed...

Hi Maureen and Owen A great big THANK YOU again to both of you for welcoming me into your home and making my stay in Geelong so special. As I said, it's the little things that make all the difference, like being able to make a bottomless cuppa, safely store my (hired) bike and wash my cycling gear, etc. And...
