Ardara House is a traditional style B&B with an old world charm, quality furnishings, peaceful and homely. Our room was large and well fitted with a good sized private bathroom and the additional bonus of a separate kitchen.
The filling breakfast started with fresh fruit salad, yoghurt and juice followed by muesli/cereal, toast, tea and coffee.
The city centre is an easy walk from Ardara with several of the city's galleries, historical buildings and eateries within the surrounding blocks. The waterfront is a short drive away and the coastal towns of Queenscliff and Torquay (Bell's Beach) within easy reach.
Our host Maureen was very welcoming and hospitable and was a wealth of knowledge about the area.
This is a great B&B and well worth the stay. The only thing that could have made it better was if the open fire in the guest lounge had been fired up. The house was warm enough (aircon and electric blankets) but the ambiance of an open fire on a cold night can't be beaten.
