Thank you Joan for your great comments. It was a pleasure to have your party return to the Templestowe. If you loved our "Turkey and Tinsel", and the latest" We'll Meet Again", I hope you will come and try our all new "Rock and Roll" Weekends, with music from the 50's, 60's, 70's. The team are really excited. Thanks again... More

The bar prices weren't too outrageous for a hotel. The entertainment, though not always to my taste, was excellent. The excursions were very good. In... More

Thanks for taking the time to review the hotel. Great to hear you had such a good time. We have taken note of your WiFi comment. Unfortunately, the walls of the hotel are very thick and break the WiFi signals. However, we are installing routers which should boost signals in the lounge, ballroom and reception. Access will remain free for... More

We had a great weekend. Our sea view room was superb, very large with gorgeous windows looking out over the swimming pool and beyond to the sea. We were very impressed with the food and service. Excellent entertainment. We will be back!
