    Comfy guesthouse with lovely landlady”

    Cozy room, lovely landlady

    I stayed at Picnics the night before starting the Great Ocean Walk, and arrived on a very rainy day. The cozy, private room was perfect to rest my eyes and legs before the hike. The landlady was really friendly and kind. She gave me suggestions of places to get some food in town and even offered to drive me herself. The one downside is that it's a bit far from the town center for someone on foot. But the experience was so lovely and the room so comfy that I actually considered ditching the Great Ocean Walk and just staying at Picnics!

    Lovely little haven of peace”

    Clean, comfortable, the extra little touches to make it really homey.

    Picnics was warm, comfortable clean and welcoming just out of the centre of town. Just what we needed on a rainy day on the GOR. We were really happy with the whole stay. Good value for money. A very pleasant breakfast served in our room by our pleasant host. If I find myself in that neck of the woods again I wouldn't hesitate to stay.
