“This one is raising the standard”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

No idea why, but we quite often stay in motels or hotels. After staying here for a night I pledge we'll go to B&B's more often. The only hope is the other will meet the standard set by the Lorelei. A great host welcomed us and showed us our beautiful room in this great old villa. Everything was just perfect, a great lounge where port wine and a nice merlot were waiting for us accompanied by some nice crackers and cheese. Great to check you e-mail (free internet) with. The bed was great. Breakfast a pleasure and the chat with the owner most enjoyable.

Room Tip: Just do it, you won't be disappointed. We had room 1 which was great, haven't seen the other...

I recently stayed 1 night at Lorelei B&B whilst on a business trip to Portland. I will definitely stay there again if I return to Portland. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable with everything you could want. Roger is a terrific host and makes you feel very welcome. It's the little extras that set this place apart from its competitors such as the complimentary wine and cheese and well maintained interior of the whole building.

We were driving from Adelaide to Melbourne on the Great Ocean Road and decided to stop in Portland for the first night. Being a fairly small town, I didn't know what to expect in terms of accommodations, but the Lorelai B&B surpassed all expectations. We arrived cold, wet and tired, and as soon as we walked in we were immediately taken to our room, offered complementary tea, beer or wine, and invited to relax in the sitting room with some snacks. After we recuperated from the long drive, we walked a couple blocks down to the main street where there were a range of restaurants to choose from (the Indian place was awesome!). Great location, beautiful old house, really nice owner, and every amenity seemed to be covered. This was one of the best places we stayed during our month-long trip. And we even saw a Koala ambling down the road as we drove out of town!

We were welcomed on our arrival by Roger, owner of Lorelei B&B. Immediately we knew that our stay was going to be great. Can't beat hospitality, cheese, biscuits, wine, beer, sherry or wide choice of hot beverages was waiting for us on our return from our walk. Clean, comfortable & wide choice of breakfast selection. Roger's 4 children are a credit to him. Rose & Joe, Doncaster, Victoria.

Roger, the owner, has gone to a great deal of trouble to ensure that the visitors have everything they need. We loved it. The accommodation was roomy, the bathroom modern, complete with shampoo and shower gel/soap etc. The bed extremely comfortable. Usually that's where B&B's end, but not this one. Roger puts out delicious cheese and biscuits, plus wine, beer and soft drinks - all complementary. A nice touch and one that was appreciated by us.
Wifi included - and fast. Big hotels could learn a lot from Roger.
AT breakfast we stayed with the continental which set us up well for the day, but the option of cooked was there if we'd wanted.
We would definitely stay here again when in Portland. Recommend it without reservation.

Very quiet location and helpful, friendly owners. Pleasant rooms with every amenity. Lovely breakfast, with cooked options available as extras. Would definitely recommend, and would be happy to stay here again.

Located in a quiet area just few steps from Portland shops and restaurants, the B&B is old-style but really nice and clean. The man is extremely nice and free drinks (soft, wine and beers) are provided to customer. A nice resting room is present and the garden is very nice with lots of flowers
