Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

we spent 3 nights in the Blue Room small but adequate and cosy. Best part is relaxing in the balcony area with its own private garden. Breakfast was supplied at the well equipped kitchen. Owner is very friendly and hospitable and helpful with tips of the area.

I fouñd this little gem after a lot of searching and so happy I did. Such a beautiful house! We needed all 3 bedrooms so had the whole place to ourselves. The furnishings are gorgeous and the outdoor area is really lovely. The kitchen is well set up with plenty of choice for a continental breakfast. The only criticism I...

We stopped here for one night on our exploration of the Great Ocean Road. Gerald was so welcoming. Our room was nicely appointed, clean, quiet and very comfortable. We appreciated the tips for dinner spots. We were able to unwind and relax. Lots of breakfast options for coffee, juices, cereal, toast and fruit. We recommend it!

Casa Favilla is well located on the far end of town but still within easy walking distance of all that you want & need in Apollo Bay. Gerrard (owner) was very helpful and keeps the property immaculately clean and stocked - with a genuinely helpful nature and a huge selection of coffee and tea offerings for morning! we enjoyed hearing...

We had the large room on top of the garage and I can recommend this to all. Gerald also even helped us to get the washing done one hang it up. The lounge is very nice and cosy. Recommened to anyone staying in Apollo Bay.

Apollo Bay beach is beautiful. It has a small town of various shops, cafes, and restaurants. There is a competitive supermarket and is a really good choice of places to stay over on the fantastic Great Ocean Road Journey. We broke our tour into several parts. After leaving Melbourne we headed to Apollo Bay and Casa Favilla bed and breakfast....

A warm and enthusiastic welcome preceded a detailed summary of breakfast and contact arrangements. Prior to arrival, Gerald had proved helpful in rearranging our booking dates requiring a move into the room over the garage. This proved spacious and very peaceful. Crockery and equipment slightly eclectic and a few random date codes but a lot of effort had gone into...

We stayed here for 1 night on our way through the GOR. The room we had was very pretty and really well appointed, looking onto a beautiful garden and was calming and relaxing. The room ticked all the boxes and was really lovely. The host Gerard seemed a little flustered when we arrived, and while he was very friendly, he...

Yes, I seem to have slipped up a little with this one. We had a problem with a room other than that used by these particular guests and I was trying to be nice and polite to the new arrivals while also trying to get hold of a local tradesman who could tend to this issue that didn't affect them...

We recently stayed at Casa Favilla, and unfortunately we would not stay there ever again. For example, we felt for the price we paid it should have been a served breakfast, not self-serve, which is very impersonal. I found Gerard to be very friendly when I met him, full of good chat, a nice bloke, so it was odd we...

I am sorry that the shower pressure was so bad. A couple of others had said the pressure was low so I had removed the "water saver" valve that was fitted as standard in that room but if the pressure is still low then I need to get a plumber to check it out as no one has said anything...

After a long drive, it was refreshing to stay at a very comfortable and clean b and b. Great array of breakfast items was supplied and I was thrilled to try carefully selected breakfast goodies from Gerald. A wonderful unexpected treat was the complimentary port and chocolates that we enjoyed in the generous lounge in front of the fire. I'd...

It is always nice to read good reviews. In a town like Apollo Bay the accommodation industry is somewhat seasonal and this means that it can be difficult to maintain high standards all year round. This means good reviews are probably easier to get in late December just before we get too busy to get everything right all the time....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a bed and breakfast, not a hotel or motel. There are differences as we don't, for example, have a spa bath in any room but instead we have a dedicated "Spa Room" that may be rented by guests of ANY room that has been pre-booked. It is NOT a shared spa room but instead designed exclusively for a couple. We have complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in each bedroom, including black, green and herbal teas. The breakfast menu is complimentary and "as much as you like" (within reason) type of service, including Continental type coffee, but is not a cooked breakfast. The main shared lounge room with quality leather furnishings has a gas log fire. With only 3 rooms guests rarely compete for its use at any time. Breakfast is typically self-serve but we are prepared to set it up. It is just that most guests prefer to choose themselves in the morning what time to start the day, rather than be called for breakfast. ... more   less
