“Charming B&B”
Reviewed May 1, 2011

We stayed here on our way from Adelaide to Melbourne; sadly we only stayed one night, wish it could have been two.
Lorelie B&B offered just the right amount of privacy, combined with helpful tips on Portland from the host. Our room had a beautiful four poster bed, clean fully stocked bathroom and the serve yourself drinks were really appreciated.

my husband and I stayed here for one night on our way to the Great Ocean Road. it was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. First off, the B&B is in a great location, super easy to find, and a very short walk to restaurants and pubs in Portland. Upon arrival we discovered that our room was just beautiful, with a huge comfy bed and the most wonderfully enourmous bathtub I'd ever seen. The inn has a gorgeous sitting room with some wonderful complimentary cheese and wine. Upon waking up we had a fantastic breakfast with the most helpful and accommodating staff. I cannot recommend this little gem of an inn enough! it's truly adorable!

Over the years having stayed at much of the accommodation Portland has to offer and frequently being underwhelmed it was nice finding a place that can be recommended. Quiet and comfortable with attentive service. Nice touches like free drinks in the lounge room and quality breakfast top off a nice experience. Price not much more than a 3.5 star motel but superior in every way.

A really memorable B&B full of character, from the Magpies in the stained-glass doors to the huge wood-panelled dining room and living room; where you can help yourself to a glass of port or a beer, grab a book and unwind by the big fireplace. The bed was big and comfy and the modern bathroom had a spa bath. Owner Roger is a really friendly and helpful guy, too. Beats bland motels any day!

What a perfect place, I chose it based on the previous reviews and also the name, i'm a big Gilmore Girls fan and it sure didn't let me down.
Greeted upon arrival, our room was prepared with the heating turned on as it was a cold night. Gorgeous little B&B with everything you could ask for and very friendly people to assist you. Could not fault at all. Will most definitely go back.

I stayed one night at this B&B while on a work trip and it is probably the best B&B I have stayed at. The house was cozy and full of character (ie, wood panelling, fire places, port etc).

My bedroom had just as much charm. I really liked that it was large but cozy and the bathroom was modern and clean (I am quite picky about bathrooms).

Breakfast was scrumptious - a continental and 'hot breakfast' selection. I liked that the 'hot breakfast' selection was cooked to order. I would definitely stay again if I returned to Portland.

The location is fantastic - about two blocks from the centre of town. We had dinner at "Clocks by the Bay" which was delicious and walked there and back.
