We stayed in the School House which was comfortable but we were told that the house would now be used as a family home only, that we would not be using the main building but the owners would still be organising weddings in the grounds. We feel that...

We stayed at Quamby Homestead for four nights while attending the Port Fairy Folk Festival. Kevin booked this last year as a surprise Christmas present for me, when it was run by previous owners, and it had a top class reputation. As it was a surprise, Kevin had requested that emails not be sent, so we didn't,t receive the email...

We recently stayed here after we finished the great ocean road trip. It's about 30 mins away from the finishing suburb and so much more value for money. The grounds are beautiful as is the accommodation. The couple whom own and run the property were very gracious and friendly. Highly recommended.

Stayed two nights in this delightful homestead. It's very beautifully restored and the accommodation is tasteful. Breakfast was lovely and the raisin bread was delicious . The pub down the road in Woolsthorpe was a real find and the welcome given and meals served were special. The hosts at the homestead were friendly and gave us good advice on what...

We really enjoyed our stay at Quamby Homestead, it is just so peaceful. Being autumn, the gorgeous Quamby garden was displaying all it's spectacular autumn colours.

A lovely country B&B. Beautiful older style buildings but with the internal rooms recently renovated and comfortable. We stopped here for one night on our road trip between Melbourne and Adelaide.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quamby Homestead, located just 25mins from Warrnambool and Port Fairy, is an idyllic stopover between the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians and en route to Adelaide. This historic (built in 1888) 4 Star homestead offers the opportunity to soak up some history whilst enjoying fine accommodation in the serenity of a 3-acre garden setting. Guest rooms are set within the botanic gardens, separate from the Homestead and all with private entrances. For a short visit, stay in one of the five Mews Rooms with Queen or twin single beds, and our family suite for 4 people. Or for a longer break the original School House and the converted 2 bedroom Carriage House offer the space to relax and unwind. The rooms, all located within the garden, have different outlooks - garden, farmland or the dams and farmland. Soak up the ambiance, relax and enjoy, or spot kangaroo, echidna, possums, and study the historic plantings in a relaxed, private atmosphere. So visit Quamby Homestead to stop and draw a breath or explore the unique volcanic coastline. ... more   less
