Definitely unique place to spend a few days. If you're after tranquil surroundings and being away from the usual hectic lifestyle then this is it. Must consider 30 min. drive to Warrnambool or Port Fairy.

Thank you for coming

Loved everything about the property and accommodation …. beautiful, peaceful, private and quiet … the only thing I would add is the room just needed a bit of a once over to get the cobwebs out and the floors a bit of a sweep other than that it was wonderful! Have already been highly recommending.

Beautiful surroundings. Spotless room. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side otherwise we could have enjoyed the walks.

Very pleasant stay at the Quamby Homestead, nice quiet environment and really liked the friendly farm animals, in particular the old black and white collie that was just a lovely dog to have around.

Country charm

Pros: Was in the middle of nowhere so very quiet during the night
Cons: Provide extra blankets, better pillows, muffins in the breakfast, rugs on the floorboards
Charming place in the middle of nowhere with very friendly sheep and a dog. The room was a little disappointing with poor heating, no rugs on the floorboards and no extra blankets provided for the bed. The pillows were very ordinary and I woke up with a sore ear during the night. The smoke detector went off during the night which was very weird. The continental breakfast was very basic but could be improved with muffins included and more packets of porridge. The mini free bottle of champagne was a nice touch.

Thanks Katie for your feedback. I am so sorry about the blanket, there should have been one in there (I did find it in the next door room). Also there is a split system in the room and electric blanket. As to mats on the floor, there is not enough room for them. I feel that we provide enough goodies to eat on arrival and for breakfast, if you needed more porridge you could have asked. Thanks for this.

Second time not so good

Pros: Peaceful. Lovely gardens
Cons: Better attention to re stocking consumables.
Location: Remote. Nothing nearby.
Stayed here about five years ago and really enjoyed hospitality in historic homestead. That no longer applies and guests are restricted to the accommodation quarters. These are quite ok but not out of the ordinary. Our consumables - breakfast items etc were not adequately replenished during our five day stay. Quamby is located miles from anywhere so there needs to be a special,reason to stay there. There used to be that reason but not now.

Thank you for your review. When you booked on-line, it explains what is expected at Quamby Homestead, it did not say you had use of the homestead. As to the breakfast etc. you only had to put up ‘service the Room’ card on the door each day. Thank you.
