We drove from Melbourne to Mornington Peninsula and then spent a night here. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Our room is of ocean view. There is a balcony for us to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The restaurant serves good food too! We had dinner set - Palella and Sangria and also the breakfast the next morning.... More

A weekend away with friends who play golf. Accommodation in the Ocean View rooms with, you guessed it, great views of the ocean as well as the course and the National course next door. Diner in the restaurant via a boardwalk stroll through the bush. Food very high standard, service patchy. Breakfast buffet very good with Nespresso coffee. This is... More

We spent a night here during July and were impressed with every aspect that we experienced. The Ocean View room is truly an ocean view room. The rooms are set up on a hill and have an incredible uninterrupted view across the coastline. We had a balcony too - which would have been lovely to sit out on and enjoy... More

We are avid travellers from Melbourne and loved staying in 5star hotels whenever we travel locally or overseas. In comparison to Crown Metropole, the latest 5star hotel in Melbourne, which we stayed early in the year, this is like 5 star and Crown Metropole would have been 3star! Quality room, beds, furnishings, toiletries, amenities, facilities, food, awesome sea views in... More

Stayed here overnight in an ocean view room. This is a real view, not a filtered view Check in seamless and pleasant. Breakfast sensational and lunch in the bar was beautiful. Dinner in the lounge was also excellent. Lovely rooms. Comfy bed but for our liking maybe the mattress was slightly firm but that's just being picky. One thing...there is... More

We stayed at this resort in June 2014. It was a fabulous stay and ideal for our small and young family. The resort and resturant are lovely. The peninsula has an enormous number of activities and places to explore. We will be back! The only downside is that the resort is a little far from the action however this also... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the southern-most tip of Victoria’s glorious Mornington Peninsula, RACV Cape Schanck Resort looks out over rugged Bass Strait and Western Port Bay. It’s here that the historic Cape Schanck Lighthouse sits proudly on the rocky headland guiding ships through one of the world’s most dangerous stretches of water into safe harbour. And it’s here that this contemporary resort is set on one of the most striking coastal golf courses in Australia, offering expansive cliff-top views. While the Robert Trent Jones-designed course is ranked one of the top 100 courses in Australia, there’s a lot more to the resort, and the region for that matter, other than golf. With coastal beauty, rolling countryside, some of Victoria’s best Pinot producing wineries, galleries, produce makers and historic villages, the resort is ideally positioned for a weekend of wine tasting, exploring country markets or gazing out across the fairways to the blue Southern Ocean beyond.Our exclusive coastal accommodation in Victoria offers stylish rooms, suites or house size villas decked out in warm, contemporary décor, with luxurious interiors, balconies and every modern convenience. So kick back on your private balcony with a glass of local Pinot Noir, watch a magical sunset and listen to the ocean waves roll in. ... more   less
