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... More

I stayed at beautiful Ardara B&B with my daughter and we both loved it. If you would appreciate being cared for by a lovely Irish lassie (and lad) and would like a big, well mantained, tasteful room-then this is the place for you. There is a lot of old world charm at Aradara House and it is just like a... More

I stayed at Ardara House B&B with my partner over a weekend as we were in town for a wedding. The service offered by Maureen was second to none - a delicious breakfast of fresh produce, comfortable beds with crisp linen and everything was spotless. I would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

A friend and I stayed here for a few nights to visit family here. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome by Maureen & Owen! Most rooms were full and from the guests that we spoke too were regular guests when staying in Geelong! Free wifi and the most beautiful rooms with comfy beds I... More

I stayed here about 15 years ago and have fond memory of it being good then. Its still good all these years later. The room is huge and quiet. Bed comfy. Bathroom modern and spotless. Overall a pleasant and free space to be in. The service from the Irish owners is very casual and freindly. They arn't getting you to... More

A great place to stay on a stop over in Geelong. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Extremely comfortable bed for a great nights sleep. The breakfast was nice fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal and toast a great way to start the day. I highly recommend this lovely place.

A beautiful experience at Ardara House. Gorgeous old school charm, spotlessly clean, exceptional attention to detail, fabulous hosts. I could not recommend this BnB more highly. Do not get discouraged by the inability to book online at this stage - evidently the website is under reconstruction so send through an email to Maureen and she will be only too happy... More

I travelled by train from Melbourne to Geelong. Ardara House, a a ten-minute walk from the train station, is the opposite of a hotel experience. This Bed and Breakfast establishment is the creation of a very friendly couple who really look after their guests. My room had an ensuite, all the furnishings were exquisite, breakfast was served in the dining... More
