Our stay was excellent, with Terry the owner extremely helpful with our enquiries and requests. We were upgraded to a room with a spa and the facilities were brilliant. Location was also really good, being near the bus stop to/from Frankston and a short walk away from the supermarket, restaurants and the Rye jetty. Would definitely return.

Firstly let me agree with other writers, lovely owners! Friendly, helpful etc.. But.... Moonlight Bay it is not! It's a street back from the Bay. In fact from our room no view at all except a Pool. We were upgraded into a two bedroom suite, with spa, no. 16 I think. All very nice chipboard cupboards, typical sterile hotel chain... More

I took 3 children to stay over new years and we had an amazing stay. The staff were lovely, facilities were perfect and the location was better than I could have imagined. Right in the middle of all of the attractions of rye, we were a short walk from everything. The apartment we stayed in had a beautiful spa, kitchen... More

We managed to get the last room available and stayed here for three days. Our room was spacious and clean and the bed very comfortable. The manager was excellent. She pointed out places to eat, where the nearest supermarkets were, and as we were getting ready to leave, gave us useful ideas on where to head for next. The location... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. Very warm welcome from Abbey, we were even given a choice of 3 different rooms but decided on room 18. Didn't try out the heated pool but looked inviting. It was just a walk across the road to the lovely beach and a pier. Couldn't fault our stay.
