We had a marvelous stay at this well-designed guest house on the hill outside of Apollo Bay. It was a windy road, but when we arrived we had a very lovely two-story apartment-like guest room with amazing views from the deck and lofted bedroom. We appreciated the music CDs available for our use and found some great classics to listen... More

We have been returning to A Room With A View over the past few years. We wanted to find an escape from Melbourne and our busy lives, where we could unwind and step away from the city rat race. We love looking at the ocean so A Room With A View seemed a great match. However we have found it... More

The room was clean, view was breathtaking and the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. it was very warm and homely. The spa bath was incredible too!

We stayed here four years ago and loved it so much we decided to come back. We stayed in the larger room again, which was great - an amazing view. We barely went outside the whole weekend as it was so relaxing sitting looking out over the ocean plus the bed is super comfy. It is very quiet here too... More

We were looking for an ocean-view hotel or room and we certainly found it! Breath taking view from both the room and livingroom. We greatly enjoyed our stay there and our lazy breakfast on the porch while bird and view watching! Breakfast was delicious and it was quite a treat for Angelika to show us that there was a koala...

Although this B& B is a little way off of the main coastal road it is definitely worth a visit. The rooms look onto a large garden with Koala bears chilling out in the trees . Angeliika was so helpful and insisted on providing a very early breakfast when we wanted to make an early start to catch the ferry... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our accommodation. Glad you enjoyed the view. Our website states we are 14kms from all of the eateries etc in Apollo Bay, which is why we attract so many internationals and nationals looking for a quieter and nature-based experience.

That was the best trip My partner and I have undertaken before I left back to Europe. The room with a view keeps its promise. Beautiful, kind and quiet. It was lovely to be there and the breakfast ... omg how I miss it. And... the owner spoke German ... yayyy... 😄😉👍 Can highly recommend this place.
