My wife and I finished a week long tour of the Great Ocean Road by spending 2 nights at the Athelstane Hotel in Queenscliff. This small hotel is a absolute delight, with great character and a real air of relaxation. If you are looking for a 5 star setup with polished marble bathrooms and all the bells and whistles-this isn't the place for you. Rather if you are looking for a very laid back, relaxing environment with clean comfortable rooms and access to a restaurant that serves outstanding meals, then visit the Athelstane. Richard and his staff are extremely friendly and helpful and this is by far one of the best hotel experiences I have enjoyed. We'll be coming back.

Our second night was briefly interrupted by the fire alarm activating, due to the sensitive nature of the detectors. False alarm so no need to worry. As a result the staff of Athelstane House declared breakfast to be a champagne breakfast with bubbly complimentary to those who felt like a glass or two.

A wonderful little hotel with the best customer service l have come across in a long time. Thank you Richard for being so attentive and friendly. As soon as we walked in we knew we had chosen well. Relaxed straight away.
We stayed in the court yard room and it was perfect size, cosy and bright and all the furnishings are nicely put together. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. Unfortuanately we could only stay one night but we are planning to go back soon. Breakfast was delicious in their very nice restaurant.
We highly recommend Athelstane House.
Your kind of customer service makes the biggest difference. Thanks again!

I agree with all the positive reviews and recommend selecting a room with a private balcony. This is not a 5 star Melbourne hotel but neither is it of the souless variety- it exudes charm and the character filled sitting rooms, the broad verandahs and the ever obliging staff mean that this is an experience not just a place to stay.

Stayed for 2 nights recently with a bunch of other friends (couples). The hosts were most gracious and unassuming, the breakfasts were a highlight with excellent, attentive and friendly service. I think we might have drawn the short straw re the room, as ours was quite small and the bathroom tiny with very little elbow space or a place to put toiletries. Our friends all had rooms of differing size/features, so depends what your needs are, but if you have a choice I'd suggest pick a room with a bigger bathroom.

Recently stayed here mid-week with colleagues. Richard and his staff were amazing and accommodating and went well out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. I can't recommend Athelstane House highly enough.
