“The highlight of our holiday in Australia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2007

My fiancee and I spent three weeks in Australia in August 2006. The culmination of our holiday was spending several days travelling down the Great Ocean Road (GOR) from Melbourne to the awesome Twelve Apostles landmark. Our first stop was the beautiful, historic town of Lorne. The local tourist office was extremely helpful in showing us what was available and we decided to check out two B&Bs.

After visiting both we opted for Ravenswood. This is a marvellous colonial-era clapboard house run by a friendly young couple – she’s Australian, he’s Canadian – who have gone to great lengths in giving it a 19th century feel. We particularly appreciated the large heavy-wood beds providing a very comfortable night’s sleep.

The room also had a Jacuzzi tub in the en suite which was a nice extra (though I recommend ensuring the jets are completely submerged before activating it!). There’s also a well-stocked fridge with reasonably-priced liquor too.

We enjoyed a beautifully-cooked English breakfast the following morning, sat out on the authentically creaky veranda overlooking the town with a view to the sea.

The GOR was the highlight of our holiday and this is a stunning part of Victoria state. We enjoyed our night at Ravenswood so much in fact, that we decided to spend the remaining three nights there also. I have never felt more at home, and more welcome, at any other B&B or hotel anywhere else on earth. We do not hesitate in recommending it.
