We stayed at Captains for one night on the great ocean road, based on the recommendations of our tour guide. We had a terrace room and it was beautiful and spacious, with a view if the ocean. Breakfast was very nice with a full continental spread and bacon and eggs made to order. The location was great just a block...

Good location, helpful hosts, comfortable room and bed, great breakfast :-) Captains at the bay is one block back from the beach, it's easy to to find with good parking on site. Room was comfortable, warm had a small courtyard and foxtel.

Highly recommend Captains on the Bay. Large room and very good bed... We were arriving late but with a quick phone call from the owner everything was sorted. The service and wifi is easily the best we have seen in Victoria.

On our fortnight trip, this rated as the very best place at which we stayed. Beautifully appointed and very spacious; this made for such a comfortable stopover. And the owners were so friendly and helpful and cooked a nice breakfast. The bathroom is exceptionally well set up. Very well priced when we visited. The nearby Spanish tapas restaurant added to...

When we learned that the ownership had changed, we were initially frightened as the TA reviews had been very good. We can say that we were very impressed with Captain's at the Bay and the new owners, Anna & Duncan. They were very hospitable, gave very good recommendations on restaurants and things to do in the area and just fun...

This is our first stop on our drive. Our room is on the third floor with a nice view. It is large, clean& very comfortable. It's a short walk to town and restaurants or the beach. The owners are very nice and helpful. We highly recommend this as a stop on the Drive.

My husband and I stayed here April 2015, in the CAPTAIN'S COTTAGE". The room was a great size with a remote control gas fireplace, and a very comfy bed. The ensuite was behind the bed separated by a beautiful stone wall.There is a double shower and double basins. Beautiful decor. The price was brilliant as it included a full breakfast....

As others have said, a warm welcome, suggestions of where to eat, and a delightful room with superb and very spacious en suite (Terrace room). We loved it and only wished we had planned to stay longer. Knowing what we know now, we would have spent at least two nights here rather than moving on the Port Fairy as we...

We were welcomed by Anne to gave us maps, information and suggestions of where to go for dinner. We stayed in a Bridge Room which was great. Spacious with high quality furnishings and fixtures. An easy walk to town. Enjoyed the breakfast the following morning. A lovely continental selection and bacon and eggs available on request too. Would stay here...

Welcomed by Duncan and Anne on our arrival, we were shown around and led to our "Bridge Room" where we could see glimpses of the ocean and surrounding hills. It was a great way to wake up in the morning and have the sun streaming in. Room was a great size for a couple, for a couple of nights. Bath...
