We had just one night at the homestead (April 2014) whilst travelling the Great Ocean Road. It was well worth the diversion. William was a first-class host, and as we were the only guests that night we felt like honoured guests. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are excellently renovated. What a great setting for welcoming the weary traveller....

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your short stay at Quamby Homestead in the School House and the recommendation of an evening meal in the local pub (just a 5 min drive from here). We look forward to giving you another warm welcome when you are next this way.

We stayed at the homestead for one night during our trip on the Great Ocean Road. It's a bit out of the direction, but a charming place. We stayed at the old school building but unfortunately couldn't enjoy the environment as we had to move on to Adelaide. The staff are very helpful and friendly. WiFi did eventually work but...

We really enjoyed staying at Quamby over Easter weekend. The property is beautiful, and the rooms have been refurbished to a very high standard and are very comfortable. It's very dark and quiet at night, so perfect for a good night's sleep! The hosts are very kind and helpful. Our children loved the animals - there are alpacas, chickens, a...

We stayed at Quamby whilst attending the Port Fairy folk festival for the Labour day long weekend. It was a very relaxing and peaceful respite, waking to the sound of the birds each morning , followed by a delicious full breakfast, included in the price . We stayed in one of the Mews rooms, which was modern and very comfortable...

We were only staying for one night and really wish we had stayed longer, we were in the Old School House so we were a bit away from the other rooms. It was nice just being in the silence of the countryside, also imagining the silence that would have been when the buildings were originally built some 150 is years...

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the School House which has lovely views overlooking the dam and surrounding paddocks. The 2km parameter walk starting in the gardens and then past the dams and paddocks is very popular with all our guests, often wallabies can be seen by the top dam! We have plans in the near...

We visited Quamby on our way back to Sydney. What a beautiful home where we were warmly welcomed by William and Ailsa. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the gardens were beautiful and so peaceful! Could have stayed a lot longer. We will definitely be back when we next return to Australia!

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
