Robe House B&B is located in Robe and is the oldest house in Robe. It was the Governor's house originally. It has been split up into about 5 apartments, each with their own patio and seating area. There is free WiFi access though I had to sit on the porch sometimes to access it. We had an apartment consisting of...

Robe House has a lot of character and history, and was adequately furnished, but having booked into a b& b we had expected more. It was really self catering, and as such was fine. The bathroom seemed recently re-furnished and the bed was comfortable. Provisions for breakfast were left in the kitchen area and were adequate. We were there in...

Thanks for taking the time to review Robe House. I am really disappointed that although I spoke with you at length during your stay you did not mention any of your comments in person.

We had a night at the Robe House  while travelling between Adelaide and Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road.   The B&B is in a sympathetically restored historic house with 3 or 4 rooms, a bigger apartment and at least one separate cottage. It is a short stroll from the town centre and the harbour.  The decoration And furnishings were...

Thanks for your review of Robe House. The building is 170 years old next year so you have stayed in a real part of Robe's history. In Australia there are 2 different types of B&B. Robe House fits into the more common self contained category, however there are also traditional B&B's to be found. We try to provide just about...

This was the second time we have stayed here - the first in 2012, so it was nice to return and find everything to be as good as we remembered - and with sunnier weather! We were again in 'number 1' which contains some of the original features of this historic building, and is nicely subdivided into a kitchen/living area...

We stayed at Robe House at the end if our Great Ocean Road trio, on the way to Adelaide and we loved it.

We had a very nice 'cottage' room separate from the main house which is very comfortably appointed too. Great old world atmosphere. Friendly, helpful owner. Clean and comfortable. Super stay with excellent breakfast provisions in the room. The arrival system is a bit strange if you don't know about it. As the owner is not on property, the keys and...
