A Wee GemStayed April 2011
This was an ideal base to do a bit of exploring after driving along the Great Ocean Road from Apollo Bay. Great accommodation and lovely hosts to ensure the apartment was always well serviced. The provisions available on arrival were heaven sent as we got there fairly late on. The cupboard full of books and VCR Tapes was great as we had a couple fo very rainy nights. Also lovely shops in Robe and plenty of nice places to eat. Also nice to stay in a little piece of history!
Quaint house steeped in historyStayed April 2011
We took on driving from Melbourne to Adelaide over two days and one night with a stay in Robe. We wanted to be over the boarder into South Australia by the evening and chose Robe as our overnight stop. Looked at Robe House, great reviews so decided this was the spot and we were not disappointed. This house has been immaculately preserved, I loved the history books that the owners have put together, the furniture fitting with the style of the house. We had appartment 1 at the front of the house, we arrived very late in the evening, but no hassle at all getting in as door was open (key in the door)....shows a very safe and secure place to be. We had fresh stuff to make breakfast in the morning (eggs, tomatoes, milk etc) I would stay at Robe House again, we had a very memorable stay.
Unusual but actually very pleasantStayed February 2011
Once we were over the shock of finding the place unattended (the owners live a short drive away) the high ceilinged room, part of a standalone historic block now made up of four rooms, was nevertheless well prepared for our arrival. The facilities include a cooker, sink and fridge stocked with eggs, milk, bread, butter, jams and orange juice for next mornings self-prepared breakfast. Obviously no guest lounge etc but the room is spacious and reasonably comfortable in a quiet central location. We did meet the owner late the next morning and he was helpful and friendly.
FantascticStayed November 2010
We stayed for 1 night in November while travelling from Adelaide to Melbourne. The room was very in keeping with the style of the property, very clean, comfortable and warm. It was 9 degrees outside, but Robe House by far out wayed the poor weather.
