If you want to stay somewhere close to the 12 Apostles - you can't get closer than this. A quaint, homely farmhouse just over the rise. Robyn is very welcoming and generous with her breakfasts (we have tried to replicate it at home, but somehow it's not the same - maybe it's the local marinated fetta or the fresh eggs...

We stayed at the Twelve Apostles B&B by necessity as when we arrived at our planned accommodation it had been double booked by the owner (Loch Ard B&B) On arriving at The Twelve Apostles we were greeted by Robyn who showed us to a lovely four poster room with en-suite bathroom. Robyn is a gracious host who is a font...

I was last here 40 years ago and it does not disappoint. It's so worth a visit. Raw natural Beauty. Nature , ocean , views , panoramas. Self drive is what I recommend. We traveled the great ocean Rd from Torquay to just past Peterborough. Don't skip out at Port Campbell. Carry on and do London bridge and bay of...

My partner Andre and I booked this B&B originally for one night to allow us to see the 12 Apostles and surrounding sights - but after 5 min decided to stay another night. The bedroom was impeccably clean, with all the added extras of a gorgeous country stay. Our host Robyn was the icing on the cake - WE MISS...

My husband and I stayed for one night on our drive around the Great Ocean Road. Wish we stayed for longer! Very convenient location - 5 min drive to the 12 Apostles, meaning you can get up at the crack of dawn and go see the 12 Apostles/Gibson's Steps etc. without the crowds. Due to the lack of light pollution,...

This really is a place of perfect peace. The welcome from Robyn is so warm and our room looked out across the fields to the sea. No television, no internet and all the better for that. A lovely, comfortable place to stay, away from the tourist buzz of the Great Ocean Road. Robyn is a welcoming and knowledgeable host and...

Beautiful 12 apostles and great ocean road! What a beautiful place to have my back yard! You don't need an expensive camera with filters for this slice of heaven, as every lookout looks just like a postcard!

Really a secret spot. I didn't see this listing on major hotel booking websites, only on the main Great Ocean Road website itself. This is such a beautiful place to spend the night. A quiet and clean house near the 12 Apostles (5 min drive away), which allows you to catch sunrise and sunset at the 12 apostles if you...

Not a square meter of this farm hasn't been meticulously made wonderful by the lovely owner and her four legged companion, and our stay here was equally as admirable. When you're not star gazing, you're waking up to a view of the ocean. There's a charm offered here that a five star hotel could only hope of having. p.s Struggling...

We stayed at the 12 apostles B&B for our last night on the great ocean road. I wish we could have stayed longer. From the moment we arrived Robyn was a delightful host. She gave us tips on what to see for the few hours we had. Her bed and breakfast, surrounded by beautifully tended gardens was perfect. Spotlessly clean...
