Great place to stay we had a great time staying in the Marilyn room. Breakfast was provided in Mr Grubb Cafe each day as part of our package. Facility's were excellent, as were the staff friendly and service provided.

Thank you so much for reviewing our guesthouse. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in the Marilyn Room. Having a cafe to provide a hot breakfast in the morning is certainly something all our guests love.

We stayed here two nights in the attic room. Loved the outlook from the room of a huge tree and peaceful surrounds. We are early risers so the light coming into the room did not affect us. My only criticism would be that breakfast which was included in the room charge was not served until 9.30am For us that was...

I am honestly not sure whether I liked this accommodation or not. It's a pleasant enough property attached to a winery with an on-site restaurant. The rooms are marketed as quirky, but those of us who are not copywriters and marketing folk might apply a different adjective. We were in the Marilyn room which has a Marilyn Monroe theme in...

Selected the winery as a B&B for a one night stay on the Bellarine Peninsula. This turned out to be an excellent choice staying in a very quirky, yet comfortable Marilyn room with great amenities only a short distance from the cafes and restaurants of Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads. In addition to the room we had an excellent dinner...

We dined here for dinner on a Saturday night whilst on holiday in Torquay with friends. The drive here was only 30 minutes or so. The restaurant has a quirky, eclectic style about it. On arrival the sun was still out so we sat in the lovely courtyard to have pre dinner drinks. We had the Pinot Noir, was delicious...

Oakdene is an amazing place to visit, much less stay there. The gardens are beautiful with fountains and quirky, but tasteful, sculptures and decorations. The building that houses the accommodations is a magnificent restaurant downstairs and the rooms are upstairs. We stayed in the Marilyn's room and it was very nice. After the restaurant closes, the overnight guests are the...

Thank you for your review of our accommodation at Oakdene. We are so glad you enjoyed the amazing art works and gardens we have on the property. We did previously provide continental breakfasts for our guests, but since opening a cafe that serves breakfast now let our guests have a hot cooked breakfast instead (for the same price). We are...

Beautiful surroundings, courtyard and inside tables at Mr Grubb's. Delicious and interesting options available to share or not if it was as good as mine. Friendly staff, will definitely be back. Good for kids as there is room to wander outside.

Well, we arrived at the vineyard at 3pm. There weren't any description about the vineyard upon checking in by a lady. However, we proceeded to our room n freshen up.

“The Oakdene Vineyards Guesthouse consists of three [3] rooms in total with each being of a unique theme & décor. My husband & I stayed in "The Attic Room" which had a great view, a lovely, colourful orange bathroom and was very comfortable. Our tip / suggestion is to go back again to see what each individual room has on offer! All three rooms will provide for three very different experiences we suspect due to their unique style and design. [When we can afford it that is !].”
