Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Both my partner and myself stayed at Benita's beautiful cottage for 4 nights while we were in the process of moving. We absolutely loved it! it was in the perfect location being so close to all the resturants and cafes that williamstown has to offer along with the beach. She was very lovely and accommodating to us and we would highly recommend her place to anyone that were travelling! :)

  • Benita's house was lovely, looking exactly like the pictures. Our bedroom was spacious with our own fridge & kettle and we were even provided with bread, butter, tea bags etc for breakfast. We had a bathroom to ourselves, once again very spacious and clean with a very nice shower.

    It is just a short walk to Williamstown centre and right next to the seaside. To get in the city it is about a 15-20 minute walk to the station with regular trains taking about 20 minutes straight to Flinders Street. I'd highly recommend staying here if you're after somewhere peaceful and quiet with relatively easy acces to the city.

    Benita was a lovely host, although we only saw her a few times as she was working, she was always very friendly and helpful.

  • Benita was a great host- everything was prepared when we arrived! We had our private fridge in the room which was filled with cereals, fruits, milk and water.
    (North) Williamstown is a very nice suburb, there are Cafés, Restaurants and Shops and the Supermarket is about 5 minutes to walk. By Metro you can reach Melbourne in 20-25 minutes.

  • Benita's house is as lovely as the photos show. Super close to the sea which offers a great view of Melbourne skyline from the otherwise of the city. Probably because it's holiday, didn't get the chance to meet Benita, but on the other hand I get the whole house to my own. -) Williamstown itself is a beautiful place to visit, even it's a bit away from the city centre. Very convenient transportation within 25 mins teaching the busy centre of Melbourne.

  • Our stay at this charming house was pleasant. Benita was a great hostess and we felt right at home at her place. Our room was equipped with a small breakfast area with a desk, bar fridge, toaster, coffee maker, and kettle. To eat there was cereal, bread, tea, coffee, jam and VEGEMITE! There was also towels and the bed was large and very comfortable!

    We enjoyed it's location in Williamstown with it's small town feel and everything you need at a few minutes walk. It's also very easy to get to downtown Melbourne via bus/train which takes around 30-40 minutes.

    Overall, we are very happy with our selection of this B&B! It was perfect and we would recommend it to all family and friends coming to visit Melbourne. Thanks to Benita!

    Overall all our stay at charming seaside cottage was pleasant.
