We booked Arabella Country House after reading all the good reviews and don't regret our decision at all.. the place was beautiful and elegant and gives a feeling of stepping back in time.. the place has been lovingly preserved by the owners who were very nice, sweet people who took care of the tiniest details from the welcome tea to...

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Adelaide. Lynne instantly made us feel welcome by greeting us at the door with her two lovely dogs. I'd read a previous review about the dog smell, which we all noticed on arrival, but it really was only apparent up towards their private living quarters. The rooms, while dated, were...

We stayed here on the first night of our Auswalk Great Ocean Walk Highlights self-guide walk – five days, four nights, three days walking (see separate review). The welcome from Lynne and Neil could not have been more friendly and inviting. We arrived wet and bedraggled and only after Neil had met us at the end of a long days...

Fabulous! Warm, hospitable and a 'home away from home' feeling with delectable culinary skills and perfect outlook over our fortunate country! A memorable stay offering all one could possibly need! We'll be back sooner than later! Robyn & Jane/Auswalk

We stayed with Neil and Lynne during our Great Ocean Walk adventure (see Auswalk review) and wanted to make a separate recommendation for the Arabella Country House because it was our favourite stop-over of the holiday. [We always do a family poll at the end of a touring holiday, and it is seldom the case that all 4 family members...

We looked for a place to stop over whilst travelling the Great Ocean Road and came across Arabella and so glad we did. The location is perfect - easily seen from the main road and only 5 minutes from the 12 Apostles so ideal if you want to visit at sunset or even sunrise! It's on a working farm so...

This is probably one of the worst places I have stayed. It was clean however it was extremely dated. When we arrived the hosts were obviously cooking their dinner and the smell was awful. Additionally there was a very strong smell of "dog". We went out for dinner and when we came back the smell was worse than ever. We...

We booked Arabella after reading the good reviews and we are sure glad we did. Would definitely return to Arabella again if we do visit GOR in future. Hosts Neil & Lynne are very considerate and nice people who really take pride in their work. One can really see the effort they put in maintaining the place. Clean, spacious, nicely...

Lynne and Neil were wonderful hosts. Really made us feel welcome in their home. Absolutely fantastic breakfast. I recommend the pancakes. Everything was spotlessly clean. Huge bath to relax in after a day of hiking. Very comfortable beds. Helpful with sightseeing tips. Couldn't have been better.
