Gatehouse on Ryrie
Ranked #4 of 9 Geelong B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Lovely "homely" B&B. Paul (the owner) is a really nice guy and made our stay there very enjoyable. Beautiful common area with Guitars, telescopes, electric organ?! A little quirky even! Just across the road from "Jokers" Bar - the only bar open past 11pm on a weekday!And a 24hr maccas if you're really stuck, but heaps of great cafe's and restaurants just up Ryrie st. But by god... THE BEST SHOWER I have ever had in a B&B! Worth it just for that! Great location, really central to most things, and close to the University. Highly recommend!

I stayed here on my way back home after a long night drive. I was an hour later than I had intended and Paul happily waited for me. The breakfast was beautiful with porridge, cereal (including muesli), yogurt, tea coffee, toast and orange juice on offer. Bathrooms were clean as was the room. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed in order to go to Kardinia stadium - Saints vrs Geelong. Great room with lovely ambiance and very clean. Easy walk to town and restaurants, botanical garden (walk before the game) and to the stadium. Easy to find after a drive from Melbourne. I really liked the house and it's older world charm - beautiful led light windows. The owner is friendly and nice to chat with. If anything, breakfast could be a bit more diverse but really, for the price, a great place to stay.

Very friendly owner and fast response. The house was almost full when we booked (quite last minute). Location was good, there's a Mac fast food just across the road, and walking distance to many shops. Breakfast room was cosy and nice, with ample food and drinks (there are even choices of bread, not just plain bread!). Bathroom was big and well-stocked with soaps and shampoo. Very nice house - clean big and everything!

I selected this stately and historic B&B for a single night in Geelong for business. My room and the shared bathroom. we're spacious and clean, the bed comfortable. Unusually hot weather tested the capacity of the air in in the room, and I was bothered by street noise on this busy road despite the attempt at double glazing. Host Paul was attentive and helpful. Free onsite parking was a plus. I found the breakfast underwhelming, with few choices and no seasonal fruit available. Excellent value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street for a quieter night.

Beautiful historical mansion, very clean and comfortable with free breakfast. We slept so well in this spacious bedroom in winter with such powerful heater, washroom is also huge with nice bathtub. Best among all the good things here, the Maintenance Lady is of the highest integrity and honesty. After we have checked out, she found my precious watch being left behind on the bed side table and she is so kind to return this treasure back to me. I am extremely grateful as this watch means so much sentimental value to me as given by my very beloved. Thanks alot to her, she has done humanity proud!

Had a really pleasant stay at Gatehouse on Ryrie at the end of our Great Ocean Road trip. Free parking was a plus, only three bays available, but plenty of on road parking nearby, don't know if there is a charge for this. Twin room had a tv and DVD player, and the beds were a queen size and a single. Breakfast was basic of toast with preserves and cereal. Our host Paul was great, but would not have known where to find him when required, but this was a positive for us, as having the run of the place was nice in between hostel stays.
