We had a marvelous stay at this well-designed guest house on the hill outside of Apollo Bay. It was a windy road, but when we arrived we had a very lovely two-story apartment-like guest room with amazing views from the deck and lofted bedroom. We appreciated the music CDs available for our use and found some great classics to listen...

We have been returning to A Room With A View over the past few years. We wanted to find an escape from Melbourne and our busy lives, where we could unwind and step away from the city rat race. We love looking at the ocean so A Room With A View seemed a great match. However we have found it...

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts about us and our wonderful area (especially 'cos I know how busy you are). It's always lovely to have the two J's visit with the two B's. Really hope there are many times ahead cheers Angelika

We stayed here four years ago and loved it so much we decided to come back. We stayed in the larger room again, which was great - an amazing view. We barely went outside the whole weekend as it was so relaxing sitting looking out over the ocean plus the bed is super comfy. It is very quiet here too...

We were looking for an ocean-view hotel or room and we certainly found it! Breath taking view from both the room and livingroom. We greatly enjoyed our stay there and our lazy breakfast on the porch while bird and view watching! Breakfast was delicious and it was quite a treat for Angelika to show us that there was a koala...

I am writing this review more than a year after I spent two nights at this delightful place. I was travelling with a friend for the Cricket World Cup 2015 and we planned to stay over for a couple of days. However, my friend had to rush to Melbourne urgently. Angelika was extremely helpful in guiding us to find the...

Although this B& B is a little way off of the main coastal road it is definitely worth a visit. The rooms look onto a large garden with Koala bears chilling out in the trees . Angeliika was so helpful and insisted on providing a very early breakfast when we wanted to make an early start to catch the ferry...

During a hectic and exciting trip down the Great Ocean Road, we spent 2 nights here to relax and enjoy the fairly laid back town of Apollo Bay. It ticked all of those boxes! All of this, with lovely hosts Angelika and Gary! A Room with a View really is that (see pics)! Stunning views from a lovely B&B. The...

Thank you for taking the time to review our accommodation. Glad you enjoyed the view. Our website states we are 14kms from all of the eateries etc in Apollo Bay, which is why we attract so many internationals and nationals looking for a quieter and nature-based experience. It is also why you were able to view koalas and our Bower...

That was the best trip My partner and I have undertaken before I left back to Europe. The room with a view keeps its promise. Beautiful, kind and quiet.
