Well what can I say, from the moment we entered the office it was like going to visit family. Very friendly staff explained the whole workings of the business and where to eat locally. Later on in the afternoon we meet the owners and they was very friendly and we chatted. Rooms are awesome, clean and comfy. Breakfast was fantastic...

It was a pretty new B&B therefore the place was very clean and fresh. The room was very spacious and it had a wide and clean bathroom. The mattress was comfortable and so were the pillows. The breakfast served was really nice country style cooking.

We spent two nights in the Cottage. It's a lovely room, well appointed, with a lovely freestanding bath. Good facilities, including Foxtel. Breakfast was lovely, choice of bacon/eggs or variety of breakfast cereals or toast ( or all if you are really hungry). Hosts are very friendly, and guided us well as to the local sites. Very nice stay overall....

Lovely stay with charming and most helpful hosts. Our room was one of the best we have stayed in with balcony and ocean views.Breakfast included in the tariff was more than adequate with the hosts making certain that our every whim was well catered for.We cannot recommend the Captains highly enough.

The young lady at the reception desk was friendly and very helpful on arrival. The terrace room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very roomy. I was travelling with my sister and wanted 2 beds. A comfortable folding bed was placed in the room and made up on arrival. There was a problem with the television reception however...

This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Apollo Bay or travelling down the Great Ocean Road. We had one of the Terrace Rooms which is a good size and nicely furnished. Parking was available just outside the door and it is only a five minute walk to the shops and restaurants on the seafront. The owners...

Room was functional and well equipped and the bed very comfortable. It lacked character though and the bathroom was only average. Breakfast was excellent and we found the owners very helpful, knowledgable and friendly. Our overall opinion was that the hotel felt a little soulless. It is, however, in a good location and the local Italian restaurant recommended was good.

My partner and I stayed here back in June & we still rave about it to our family and friends. We have stayed at many leisure places in the Whitsundays paying twice as much. We received wonderful service and the room was to die for and beds are super comfy! Very convenient location for shops and restaurants. The breakfast was...

Located just one street behind the main street, we arrived and checked in. Our hosts, Duncan and Anna were just the nicest ever. We wanted to eat out that evening, and they gave us good recommendations. Duncan's sight seeing advice was appreciated and also spot on. The room was huge, as was the bathroom. Everything was spotless. The air conditioning...
