Our host was very welcoming and went out of her way to accomodate us. Our room was compact clean and very comfortable, and our all inclusive breakfast was delicious! We also had dinner at the restaurant which was tasty and well presented. Our dessert of raspberry cassata was scrumptious. Look forward to returning.

Situated in a quiet side street right in the Centre of beautiful Queenscliff. Wonderful breakfast included. Sensational dinner available each night. Staff very friendly and helpful. Reading or relaxing areas on both floors. Walking distance to the beach. Rooms comfortable. Perfect for a getaway.

My family stayed in the very well designed courtyard room. the accommodation was perfect for us, the room had bunk beds and a double. The great thing was the separation between the bunks and the double was enough so that you didn't feel the bunks were right in your face. Athelstane house also has a lounge and a big verandah...

Athelstane hotel is a boutique-style place a stone throw away from the main street of Queenscliff. Very nice-looking and in good condition. Some rooms are relatively small and some very big with their own terrace. The bathrooms seem to be rather big and some seem to have a nice bathtub. A bed in our room was a little bit too... More

Beautiful, cozy house perfect for family gathering/couple's getaway. It has books, games and fireplace. Lovely stay in quiet neighbourhood. Fantastic dinner at the main house. Great location as it is near many restaurants, cafes and bakeries, surrounded by gorgeous views and colonial buildings.

A lovely, quaint property in sleepy Queenscliff. The management was ever so helpful as I needed a room on the ground floor for my mother. The meals were great, if a tad expensive, but that seems to be much of Australia these days. Rooms were cosy even during the height of winter. Would stay again.

Recently stayed two nights in a balcony room. This is an old building but in very good condition. Room was fine and bed very comfortable. There is a nice balcony off the back of the room but weather was a little too cool and windy to sit outside for drinks and nibbles. Instead, we were made welcome in the downstairs... More

Took my husband away for the weekend and had a great time! Peaceful, tranquil and comfortable. Breakfast is included which has a good selection, even cooking the eggs the way my husband likes them. Great location with quick access to the ferry and bellarine peninsula. Staff are very welcoming and friendly
