I can't comment on the interior as we never actually went inside, we were guests at a wedding ceremony in the rose garden. It is a truly beautiful location for a wedding. The sun shone, the roses were lovely, truly an idyllic setting. The reception was held elsewhere but there was a small champagne reception also held in the garden... More

Staying in Mornington and was taken to The Morning Estate for lunch. Fabulous food,, professional attentive staff and a wonderful setting. Eat inside or out overlooking the gardens with a glimpse of the sea. We enjoyed their own wine from the own vineyard. If you are a big eater you will need to order side dishes. Didn't have desert but... More

We were looking forward to staying here for the first time but were disappointed. Whilst we knew the accomodation was basic which was reflected in the price we did not expect to have no running water in the shower when we went to use it late at night after a function! Couldn't believe it and had an uncomfortable night as... More

We had our wedding at Morning Star Estate over the long weekend (ceremony in the chapel and reception in the ballroom) and couldn't recommend it highly enough. With the change in management, the whole process ran really smoothly, and every aspect from the wedding co-ordination, accommodation and catering was looked after professionally. Morning Star has the most beautiful setting for... More

We had the delightful experience of being guests at morning star restaurant for a delicious 3 course lunch. Although service was slow on a less than busy day, the food was scrumptious. As expected, exceptional wine list to choose from. The extensive gardens to walk the lunch off or to take a break between courses. A truly lovely venue for... More

One of those experiences that just left me shaking my head...I've never felt the need to post a negative review online, however our recent lunch at this restauarant really deserves it. Fabulous food, friendly and attentive service mean absolutely nothing when two ladies who are clearly the owners of the venue sit themselves in the middle of a busy long... More

While the rooms were small, they were clean & comfortable and on site...so no driving or taxis. The NTE function was well organised. Great finger food all night and fantastic fireworks at the end. Would be very happy to do it again next year...

We had two nights at Morning Star Estate. The bed was very comfortable, the evening was quiet - just the chatter of a few guests in the hall way but otherwise everyone was very respectful. The staff are friendly and informative. The main attraction is the history of the estate, the spectacular rose garden and the lovely restaurant. The rooms... More

We recently had our work Christmas do at Morning Star Esate for the second year running. Once again we had the most wonderful day. The setting is superb with views over rose gardens, vineyards and out to sea. Blue skies, green vines and blooming roses made the walks between courses all the more enjoyable. The food was divine. We were... More

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Morning Star Estate in October and we have absolutely no complaints! While we had some issues earlier in the year when we paid the deposit, Lisa and her team brought things back on track and delivered the most beautiful wedding. Also a big thank you to the new restaurant... More
