Every year we make sure we have a couple of nights away without the kids. Robe has been our destination of choice for a few cycles now - in the dead of winter, when there's nothing better to do but sit and drink wine by the fire and read. (Zombie novels are our favourite, but I'll leave that bit up... More

Hi Mary, thanks for your lovely review of apartment 4 at Robe House. A winter escape at Robe can be a great way to get away from it all, and we are so glad that you managed to do just that! We look forward to seeing you next time. Best wishes Andrew and Sally More

Robe House B&B is located in Robe and is the oldest house in Robe. It was the Governor's house originally. It has been split up into about 5 apartments, each with their own patio and seating area. There is free WiFi access though I had to sit on the porch sometimes to access it. We had an apartment consisting of... More

Robe House has a lot of character and history, and was adequately furnished, but having booked into a b& b we had expected more. It was really self catering, and as such was fine. The bathroom seemed recently re-furnished and the bed was comfortable. Provisions for breakfast were left in the kitchen area and were adequate. We were there in... More

Thanks for taking the time to review Robe House. I am really disappointed that although I spoke with you at length during your stay you did not mention any of your comments in person.

We had a night at the Robe House  while travelling between Adelaide and Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road.   The B&B is in a sympathetically restored historic house with 3 or 4 rooms, a bigger apartment and at least one separate cottage. It is a short stroll from the town centre and the harbour.  The decoration And furnishings were... More

Thanks for your review of Robe House. The building is 170 years old next year so you have stayed in a real part of Robe's history. In Australia there are 2 different types of B&B. Robe House fits into the more common self contained category, however there are also traditional B&B's to be found. We try to provide just about... More

This was the second time we have stayed here - the first in 2012, so it was nice to return and find everything to be as good as we remembered - and with sunnier weather! We were again in 'number 1' which contains some of the original features of this historic building, and is nicely subdivided into a kitchen/living area... More
