Lovely place - Great views!
It is an amazing area and lovely to stay at. It is incredibly pretty and scenic. It is quiet at night and in the early morning - the area is only open to the public between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. The accommodation is pleasant and the studio was fairly recently refurbished. The bathroom is really nice, but the shower pressure is not great. The staff were lovely, although you don’t have a lot to do with them. There is limited internet (in practice basically none) and phone reception (some near the cafe). You can purchase food from the cafe. Evening meals will be delivered before they leave for the day. I had 2 and they were good. Nearest place to eat, otherwise, is Apollo Bay which is 30 minutes away. I loved it. I read a lot, rested, walked around, did a history tour ... I am looking forward to going back.

2 night stay in studio
Great stay for 2 nights. We stayed in studio with fantastic views down to lighthouse. So peaceful and tranquil especially after 5pm when the public leave. Cosy accommodation. Bought evening meals through the cafe. Good price and lovely. Significantly reduced hassle. Great memories.

Fantastic location. Amazing sunsets. Accommodation perfect for both comfort and gaining an understanding of what life as a lighthouse keeper must have been like. Will definitely return.

Its a lighthouse ! Fabulous location - stars were unbelievable - to be there with no crowds was truly special. The staff were all wonderful - but we were very happy to be able to leave as the crowds arrived - Australia Day and there were a lot of tourists !
