Description of Annesley House:
Top Choice & Highly recommended in the 2011 edition of the lonely planet!

Annesely House has been meticulously restored!

Romance, good & bad times, two world wars, and the very birth of our nation, Annesley House has seen it all through the eyes of the people that have lived & loved within it?s walls.

Our guiding principle when restoring Annesley was simple 'let Annesley House tell it's own story'. Please don't think Annesley House is some stuffy old museum. Just like the town of Portland, it is vibrant with everything a modern traveller could desire.

Our greatest wish is for the story of Annesley House to continue through the memories of you our guests!

Please take a moment to read the following and you will see a little of why we are passionate about Annesley House. Who knows you may even wish to add your memories to the story!

Dr Brewer
Annesley was built in 1878 as the residence and surgery of Dr Brewer. Extract from "Portland Guardian" Sept 27, 1879 TOWN IMPROVENTS"...we cannot omit noticing that of Dr Brewer. It is one of the finest that a private gentleman in a country district need desire".

Dr Brewer was both 'Medical Officer' in charge of the local hospital & Mayor. He was born in an era when you used your wealth to impress. Annesley was constructed to impress. We are sure our three-bedroom apartment that bares his name would suitably impress Dr Brewer.


Rosalie's Retreat
Dr Brewer had but one child a daughter "Rosalie" who died without producing an heir. The rooms in which she lived have been remodelled into an apartment "Rosalie's retreat". It is not difficult to imagine a young lady sitting in Rosalie's retreat glancing out at St Stephen's church or to sea searching for a suitor who alas never came.


Captain's Quarters
In the late 1800s Portland was a busy port & business centre. A man of Dr Brewer's station would have been called upon to "receive" Captain's whilst their ship was in Port. We have remodelled the rooms now known as the Captain's Quarters to reflect the eclectic tastes of sea going gentlemen of the era.


Wadmore Sisters (Honeymoon Suite)
In the early 1900s Annesley passed to the Wadmore sisters (Well known for their match making abilities). The Wadmore sisters quickly turned it into a guesthouse. Annesley became an instant hit with people of the Western Districts of Victoria.

The main bedroom of the house has been remodelled into our 'Honeymoon Suite'. We thought it was only fitting that it bares the name of these enterprising sisters.


Baytree & Mrs Luers
In the 1940s Annesley passed to Mrs Luers who had three great loves in life: playing the piano, the guests that passed through Annesley & tending the gardens of Annesley. (Mrs Luers was owner of Annesley until 2004).

We think it is only fitting that the apartment, which is draped by the Baytree, be named in her honour.


Grande & current owners
In 2004 we (the current owners) purchased Annesley our 'Grand' undertaking. Our objective was to restore Annesley to it's former glory whilst allowing the fabric of Annesley itself tell the story of those that have lived & loved within its walls.

The room, which is now known as 'the Grande', was the room in which Dr Brewer received his distinguished guests. In an era when impressions always counted this room was meant to impress.

Relaxing in the Grande we are sure you will be suitably impressed!

For those small functions or meetings when impressions do count 'the Grande' is ideal.

You & the Annesley story
True to the original aim to provide the 'finest' accommodation on offer. Annesley is now fully restored & remodelled into five 'superior' serviced apartments and the 'Grande' meeting/function room. Many of the fixtures and furnishings used are unique to Annesley House.


We keep our prices realistic so that the story can continue through you!
