This spacious, charming and historic house, offers an overnight experience with an air of respect for the village's days past. The comfortable bed, good shower and well provided for self cooking breakfast (with more than ample ingredients in the refrigerator) is a perfect stop off point on the road between Adelaide & Melbourne. The owners will wish you a warm...

Couple mid 50's staying one night while travelling the coast from Adelaide to Melbourne. Quaint old stone building transformed into apartments. Having stayed in two large cities it was refreshing to arrive somewhere much quieter. The facilities were good, being clean and tidy. Food left for us to make breakfast, which is how we like it. It must have been...

We stayed one night. Apart from the fact that the toilet had a foul smell, which was reduced a little bit by leaving the fan on all night, this was not B & B. Food had been left in the fridge for us to prepare a "healthy" breakfast. Clearly, milk wasn't considered healthy, as there wasn't any! If we'd wanted...

Dear Sally and Peter, thank you for taking the time to review your stay in apartment 5 at Robe House. In Australia there are 2 clearly distinctive types of b&b's. The one's that English people are familiar with are the traditional type, however in Australia the most common type is self catering. I am sorry that we did not get...

An immaculate modernised cottage alongside the classic heritage building with the other four rooms. Beautifully furnished with well equipped kitchen aircon and good quality furnishings. Briefly met the owner who was charming and helpful. Pretty communal garden with sitting out terrace, and off street parking Added to this Robe is a super seaside resort!

We stayed here for one night and are so pleased we were here. Robe is charming but we thought the attention to detail at robe house was a step above. A little confused on arrival as you check yourself in - a far cry from the untrusting world we live in! Some fascinating history on the house (Robes oldest) is...

If you're staying in Robe, stay here. This is by far the nicest B&B we've ever stayed in. We were in apartment 5, which was stand alone and had been renovated in late 2014. The facilities, the cleanliness and comfort were all top notch. The buildings are set in a lovely garden with free parking, a few minutes' walk from...

Hi Pierre, thanks for your review of apt 5 at Robe House. Thank you for the feedback about the noise which was not the bottles, but the gutter which was rattling in the windy conditions. I have now secured the gutter to stop the rattles! Kind regards, Andrew
