Nestled on the banks of the Moyne River, with tall, aged, Norfolk Island Pines lining the river front and with more than generous surroundings, Douglas on River rests itself in the grounds of historic Douglas House.

Douglas on river has two conservatory buildings, each of three queen size ensuite rooms, with bed and breakfast and self catering facilities offering you peace, tranquillity and a holistic experience.

Not only are your breakfast needs catered for, but the flexibility of self catering requirements in large open-plan Kitchens assist you in your needs and allow the option of foregoing The Douglas on River breakfast.

The Douglas on river is minutes walk from the town centre, away from the bustle of the highway, by the river, yet a stones throw to the beginnings of the ocean.

The road leading from the Douglas will take you to the Port Fairy 18 hole Golf Course.

Your gourmet breakfast basket is delivered to your room each morning, with home made goodies like Shaw River Buffalo Yoghurt, Ali's Muesli, Middle Eastern poached fruits, home made sourdough and more.

A fresh, healthy alternative to start your day. Watch the sun rise over the river, whilst enjoying a fresh Genovese coffee, or as a group you may choose to self cater in the modern kitchens.

Choose a bottle from the boutique wine list, and while the day away, either by the waters edge, or in the garden.

The grounds of Douglas House have been home to the district's weddings for over 100 years. Combine this with the leading restaurant in the region, Portofino on Bank, to provide you with sumptuous, mouth-watering temptations for your big day.

A range of packages are offered to cater for intimate parties to large dinners, or corporate events. Indulge in style.
