Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable but old Enjoyed our stay . Made to feel welcome . Warm fire . Comfortable beds. Lounge needs better furniture. Toilet out on back porch not that great in winter but clean. Bathroom shower needs updating so water doesn't run over floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lovely place The Wombalano was the perfect stopover while we travelled from Adelaide to Melbourne. We stayed for 2 nights which gave us a full day to explore the area around Yuulong/Johanna (which is worth exploring). It was rainy and chilly but we didn't mind as there was a fireplace in the living room. The house is furnished very well, simple and charming, we loved it. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stay with magnificient view! :) The view from the house is very beautiful because we can see the sea view clearly and the house is surrounded by a beautiful garden and green farm. We love the interior design of the house because it gives a homey feels and its a good stay for a big family like us. Upon our arrival, Glenn (the host) already fire up the chimney to warm up the house since we go there during late autumn and early winter (its quite windy and cold outside). He even provide electric blanket on each bed so you will not freezing during your sleep. Glenn is very friendly host, he even bring us to his farm on the next day of our stay. Even though it is just a one night stay, my family and I really fall in love with the house and we wish to come back again if we have the chance to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! This place is amazing. Glenn was there to greet us on arrival and was super friendly and helpful. The house itself is a lovely old country home, we had an amazing week here, we actually recorded a five track EP in the living room! Had we not had the tranquil, comfortable and picturesque surroundings of Wombalano im not sure our music would have turned out so well! Thanks so much Glenn, Wombalano was perfect!
