“Full of character, clean and well located.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

We have stayed at the guest house twice in the last twelve months.
It is opposite the beach, just up from the shops and restaurants and within a short stroll from the lighthouse.
It is a lovely old property that is well maintained with tennis courts, a pool, an outdoor kitchen for those who want to self cater and with ample parking.
Sue and Peter are helpful and friendly hosts who do a scrumptious dinner on Friday nights and a filling breakfast each morning.
We have had a family room in the motel which was clean and comfortable. The rooms open out onto the balcony and overlook the lawn to the pool. We have also stayed in the Captains Cabin which is upstairs, spacious and has a small kitchenette, comfortable chairs and foxtel and a view to the lighthouse.
This is not a modern five star property but a lovely historic guest house full of charm and character fun by friendly hosts. An enjoyable experience all round.

We decided to stay here because it was cheap close to the beach and quirky.

Having stayed there three nights we enjoyed ourselves in a nice little town that has not yet been spoilt with over development.

Whilst the accommodation was basic the bed was comfy the tv worked and really it was as it was described and at a fair price.

Short walk to the shops and the beach and will certainly be going back again.

Looking to score points with the in-laws, I took it upon myself to find a late New Year booking in the Queenscliff / Point Lonsdale area for a 3-night stay Fortunately, and with the good graces of hosts Sue and Peter, we secured adjoining rooms on the first floor of the old guest house. We have stayed in historic properties on numerous occasions and I have commented on reviews on these that you need to make your booking with certain expectations as a given. The first of these is that you are staying in a property that is often on the historical register and consequently you need to curb your expectation of having 21st century, 5-star, fixtures and fittings. With this in mind, our accommodation was quite adequate for our needs. The room was serviced daily, and there was a good provision of tea and coffee making facilities. Where history impinges on comfort however, comes in the form of fairly sparse bathroom facilities, limited wardrobe/storage space, and as usual in older buildings, s shortage of power points for recharging the all-important phones and cameras. The Guesthouse is ideally located just a short walk from the Point Lonsdale shops, the Lighthouse, beach and jetty. To the rear of the Guesthouse Sue and Peter have provided for families in a big way, with a pool, tennis court, lawn-garden settings and a fully equipped community kitchen facility. Over the New Year, when you could expect to be paying high season restaurant prices, these provisions certainly helped in making the dollar go further. Having been in Queenscliff for New Year previously, and seeing how quiet is was, we did not expect much to happen in the smaller and more remote area of Pt Lonsdale - and we were not disappointed. Some fireworks going off some distance off along the beach had the two ladies heading off looking for their share of the 'ooh-aah'. However their midnight trek was to no avail and they returned somewhat disappointed. Having had a fairly late night followed by a full day on New Year's day, we decided to retire a little early. Our room, directly above the downstairs lounge, was filled through the early evening with wafting tones of a live musical performance which initially had my attention, but as the night drew on and the song selection hit on such 'go;den oldies' as "You are my sunshine"; "Oh Lonesome Me" and "Waltzing Matilda"; When the songster began "Take me Home" at 10.45pm. I was hoping that they finally would! All in all, the Point Lonsdale Guesthouse is somewhat quirky, but also quaint with very caring hosts who make sire that your stay is enjoyable. Certainly to be considered when staying on that part of the Bellerine Peninsula.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a common access to the old balcony - great place to sit and watch the world g...

Swayed as we were by Booking.com positive "reviews" we chose this establishment for our visit to Point Lonsdale.
Our room, as selected by Booking.com was totally unacceptable and we were prepared to forfeit our deposit, if necessary, and move on.
The host was very accommodating and offered a selection of rooms for us to choose from with the only acceptable one being that with two comfortable chairs to sit in. A basic, we think.
The guesthouse has a "Heath Robinson" feel about it as it morphs into a 70's style motel at the rear. Cleanliness is acknowledged but not a feature, as we opened windows to reveal the remains of years of entrapped insect remains.
Our wardrobeless room had a cleanish bathroom and a comfortable bed. The proximity to the itinerant offerings of the local restaurants was very handy.
We inspected an internet elusive B&B next door, at double the tariff, that offered absolutely sensational accommodation and included a gourmet breakfast.
That's our next stay. but like everything, it's all down to price in the end.

Room Tip: Room 16 has seating for 2 and a reasonably updated bathroom.

My partner and I stayed here overnight and from the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. We stayed in the Captains Cabin and the room was great and spacious with its own balcony, kitchenette and living space. So peaceful.... we slept so well.
Breakfast the next morning was created by Peter who (along with wife Sue) greeted and chatted to all the guests in the lovely breakfast room at the front of the property and took time to appreciate each group of guests.

Peters breakfast was great too..... !

At a time when you can have experiences travelling with jaded hosts, that are "over it".... both Peter and Sue have a passion that is palpable, restored our faith in guesthouses, and truly are "mine hosts".

Thank you both.

We picked the Point Lonsdale guest house to stay in when my daughter and I went to the Queens Cliff music festival. I'm very glad we did. Peter & Sue "the owners" were very nice and nothing was to much trouble for them. The light globe above the bed was not working, as soon as I mentioned it, a new one was fitted. Likewise I required some extra coat hangers, no sooner said then done. The room and en suite were both adequate to our needs and very clean. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. We had a full english breakfast every day which was above average as was the service. The variety of food would cater for the most pickiest of eaters, there was something for everyone, it was all very delicious. We have already booked our stay for next years music festival. I would recommend this very charming Guest House to anyone wanting an enjoyable break and value for money. Point Lonsdale is a lovely place to visit and the people I met who live there were exceptionally nice. The place has lovely vibes, and a beach worth looking at and I must not forget to mention the light house.
