I have had the pleasure of visiting the studio on a number of occasions and have found the facilities superior to most bnb''s . The hostess Rita was a pleasure to deal with and the breakfasts she provided , not to mention the extra cake or biscuits were delicious. Do admire her artwork and decor- it truly is a great... More

Mind your head if you take the loft room! The sloped ceiling can surprise. Rooms were cosy and beautifully appointed. I loved the fact that the beds has electric blankets - was lovely to just snuggle up. The breakfast basket was lovely, well-stocked and generous. A very hospitable touch.

The studio downstairs is a great space that is very well decorated.The bed is very comfortable and the shower and bath excellent. The breakfast that Rita provides is more than ample and much appreciated. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends and family. There is no wi fi available so particularly good if you want to... More

How lucky were we to find The Coastal Barn? The answer is: Very lucky! It was a great start to our trip along The Great Ocean Road. We stayed in the Studio, which was a very spacious, ground floor, self-contained suite. We were able to park right outside too. A basket of breakfast goodies was supplied on our arrival by... More

We stayed at the Coastal Barn as an add on to the Great Ocean Road as we wanted to see Port Fairy after "tripadvisoring" the GOR. Rita is a very friendly hostess and her accomodation hit the spot exactly. The only other stop we made was in Port Campbell, which is not somewhere I'd overnight again. Rita's Barn provided twice...

Great stay = good sleep + relaxing bath + sumptious breakfast = Coastal Barn It is a surprisingly spacious, all-in suite set in a barn. We had red roasted chicken and caesar salad in the room for dinner. Highly recommended as the dinner choice is scarce.

We stayed with Rita for 2 nights last week and she was very helpful from the beginning in guiding us to all the top attractions as well as ensuring us having a wonderful stay in the house. The house is clean and especially the room downstairs had a good shower and bath which I would recommend everyone to try it... More

Only stayed for one night in rthe downstairs studio but was very impressed with the space and in particular the standard of the bathroom. An ample breakfast was provided and we could not fault the place at all. Would throughly recommend.

Rita was helpful from first contact, helping us to plan our great ocean road trip. The room was large, bright and well equipped. We loved the hamper, which contained far more than we could manage to eat and the apple cake was delicious. We were just a little unlucky with the other rental as the toddler was awake and running...

Thank you for your lovely review. Sorry that it was spoilt slightly with the early riser upstairs. You always hope that children sleep in. Hopefully the rest of your experience made up for it. More

During our trip along the Great Ocean Road we found this accomodation by chance. We stayed only one night, but it is unforgettable. Rita is a friendly host und it is a wonderful idea to offer a basket with all you need for breakfast. We stayed in the loft, which is fully equipped also for a longer stay. We told... More
