We just needed an overnighter on a cold winter's evening in Port Albert. "Dalmarnock" at Rodondo was a perfect spot to stay. It was very warm and spotlessly clean, with a very comfy bed and extra accommodation for a family if required. For a longer stay, there was a modern kitchen and modern laundry facilities.

This place is amazing. Love the old style cottages and the history. Susan was lovley. Got one of the best rooms to watch the lake (bugger it was raining) great for an overstay night or a weekend getaway. :)

This was the perfect place for a weekend escape from stress with a beautiful view over the water from our top floor room and the delightful and delicious hospitality from Sue who sent us on our way with bellies full of far too much breakfast goodness.

From the reviews, we expected better. The Harbor View Room was small, no place to put suitcases, bathroom door opened into the toilet. It was clean with a bit of "funky" artsy feel. The screen door (which we didn't need since it was very windy and we kept the glass doors shut) had a hole in it. The glass doors... More

The owner yelled continuously at the dogs to get down. She showed us the cabin which was really lovely but there was... More

Hi Mary, and thanks for your review and feedback. Over the last 10 years we have had many well socialised dogs stay here, and I have never had any problems regarding the shared yard. In fact most dogs enjoy the company of other dogs. I am sorry but I was not aware that your dog does not like other dogs,... More

Very happy we stayed there, right on the main street, next to the Park and the museum. The rooms are well equipped & tidy, at first I thought it was a bit too small but that's all you need really. Susan the owner is fantastic, very friendly and helpful! Breakfast was great, we really liked the kitchen with the old... More

We stayed in the Boat House at Rodondo. This was the perfect size for the two of us. Although the size of a tiny house it had everything we needed, separate bedroom, bathroom and a sitting room with fully equipped kitchen (including french press for coffee). Lovely to sit on the deck with a glass of wine at the end... More

We stayed in a harbour view suite and enjoyed the lovely view over a glass of champagne. The decoration was simple and stylish. Susan is a wonderful host and we really enjoyed the breakfast. Her attention to detail was appreciated.

We booked a room in the main house at Rodondo for a spur of the moment night away. Susan was wonderfully helpful when choosing which style of accommodation would suit us the best. Our room was delightful, the bed comfy and shower hot. Breakfast was a treat and is highly recommended. The General Store directly across the road is a... More

Basic accommodation but perfectly adequate, good food and hospitality at nearby Customs House Inn. Rooms, clean, tidy, functional etc, although no hairdryer! Not much to do or see in Port Albert, but we just wanted accommodation for the night.
