Bells Estate Great Ocean Road Cottages
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We just stayed there over the weekend. Planned for 1 night (due to mixed reviews) and stayed for 2 nights in the 2bdr cottage. For 180AUD a family / night, in such location 5 min drive from Torquay / Anglesea, very nice country stile surroundings, a pony, alpaca, hens...and plenty of open space + a covered swimming pool, perfect for the kids after a day surfing. Owner very nice and helpful - even gave the kids a variety of DVDs to choose from for the night. Bottom line - a very good choice for those that like the countryside, in a good location and fair price.

We recently spent a night here and were very disappointed with the place. Whilst the location was charming, with its lake, alpaca and pony, the accomodation was not value for money. We stayed in the 2brm cottage, which for $330 night, fell well short on its amenities. The cottage is advertised as having full kitchen facilities - maybe the case if you expect a sink and fridge tucked into a corner and not much else. The linen provided for the rollaway bed was torn, and the beds themselves are very low budget and uncomfortable. The worst thing of all is that the cottage is one of two ie semi detached, with NO sound insulation, so when the neighbouring guests arrived home at midnight, it sounded as if they were right in the room with us. The owner was not there on arrival, which was OK, but made no effort to come and meet us when he did come back. Overall, a very disappointing experience.

Room Tip: Dont sleep in the 2brm cottages, they are too noisy.

We just had a wonderful night's stay... Terry was helpful, friendly and very pleasant. The room was spotless and in great repair, the kitchen well stocked and the open fire was charming. We were toasty warm and very comfortable. Thanks Terry... We'll be back!

Was a bit confused when we arrived - honestly thought it was going to be better than it was.
It wasn't really bad - but it could have been better.... Lots of bugs, spiders & mozzies, was looking forward to a nice spa - but it was out of order! The double bed needs replacing, it looks like its about to collapse & I swapped a king bed at home for a single bed, not knowing I would be sleeping in a single! The website is a bit misleading I think ..

Terry was really nice, and the property is beautiful - it just needs some small improvements!

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid December 2011. Terry, The owner was so friendly and helpful. The accommodation was great. We were travelling with our 18 month old and Terry had set up a travel cot and highchair on arrival. The two bedrooms were a great size, with plenty of bedding and towels and was very clean and homely. Set on beautiful land with a grazing alpaca and pony and a solar powered pool and a gym. Fully kitted out kitchen and Terry kindly let us check out late.. handy with a little one. We regret not being able to stay more nights. Great place and good proximity to Bells beach. Would highly recommend.
