...nice and interesting decor. Situated in an odd place, although handy to town. Quite average views. Weird neighbour who talked very loudly most of the evening. Mattress very hard, very ‘budget’! Fan in Room 4 hummed loudly; couldnt really use it. Parking is definitely NOT sorted!! Hosts were lovely, fairly good breakfast! Very reasonably priced. Old house means alot of creaking boards = you hear eveyone move around the house after hours. Good spa. Nice atmosphere inside. Dont really need the gift shop - sitting area downstairs would be handy instead.

Relaxing Weekend break

Pros: Tastefully decorated - loved the quirkiness of the Moulin Rouge room. Excellent breakfast.
Cons: Can’t fit kettle under bathroom tap. Real milk would be preferable to UHT in rooms.
Location: 25 minute walk along foreshore into town. Good meals at the Grand Hotel with 10% discount.
Mick & Susie were very friendly and helpful in recommending things to do, see and eat in the area. Amazing to learn that this beautiful house was transported from Surrey Hills and converted into a B&B by Mick & Susie 18 years ago. The breakfasts were divine and kept us going all day. No children which was a bonus - couples only.

Great B&B, quiet location

Pelican Sands was a great place to stay, opposite a nature reserve, walk to the beach and Ramblers Walk. Nice views from the back deck, a favourite place to watch the sunset. Susan and Mick were very hospitable.

Great place close to the beach

I come to portarlington each year for the tri and found this place last year. Came back again this year as nick and Susan are such awesome hosts and always make you feel welcome. It's also pretty close to the beach and a short ride to the pier so great if you're doing the tri (or have a boat or want to swim). Rooms are all well laid out with a spa in each. Perhaps starting to get a little aged now but all very clean and functional and in good working order. Definitely going back next year!
