We stayed at Moonlight Bay Resort as a last minute booking and found the experience to be enjoyable enough. There is a nice pool and each room has a free car spot. The interior was okay, not as nice as some of the pictures posted on here though. It was very plain. A lot of reviewers have stated that they... More

We pulled into town after an unsuccessful attempt to get into the Peninsula Hot Spa. Apparently we had to book ahead. We were advised to return first thing in the morning on the off-chance that someone booked into the early group didn't show up. Not very satisfactory, but we were really looking forward to it. Turned up at the counter... More

Not sure about the resort title, but this is nevertheless a great spot right in the centre of Rye. It is away from the main street but within a very short walk. The room was large and very well appointed. The kitchenette was excellent with all the right utensils and gear

Don't let the motel branded exterior fool you, it sure fooled us! My partner and I had our doubts after reading bad reviews online and finding it out it was motel not a 'resort'. But with a fully equipped kitchen, open plan living area, incredibly cosy bed and the pool and spa area and the edge of your feet, it... More

When we first pulled up to the hotel it looked shabby but once we checked in (super easy check in) and entered the apartment it looked fabulous! the pool area was clean and lovely looking and the location of the resort is good. Its close to the pier and other shops so it was very convenient. The actual apartment was... More

My partner and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend. The staff were extremely accommodating and upgraded our room for free! The room we were given was very spacious and clean. This resort is a very short walk to the beach and all local restaurants. I highly recommend staying here. - Our trip became even more special after my partner... More

I think we were given an upgrade on arrival as we had booked a standard room, but were offered a king spa balcony apartment. The room was modern, clean and spacious. There is reserved parking available on-site. There were candles in the room if guests wanted a romantic ambience. Soap and shampoo are of the liquid dispenser variety, so bring... More

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
