Captain's Retreat

B&b in Melbourne's West

At the marina end of the shopping strip, this charming two-storey wooden house has six guest rooms with period features like moulded ceilings and stained-glass windows, as well as a calming garden with a worm farm and shady forest pansy tree. Separate are Williamstown Apartments and Cottages, another eight options scattered around Williamstown, including the bluestone building beside the B&B.

If you're staying at the main house, a full cooked breakfast is included. At the apartments and cottages you get a brekkie basket.
