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.

Motel was very quiet and had easy access although people do seem to have trouble parking in their correct spot. all in all would absolutely stay... More

Moonlight Bay Resort is perfectly situated close to Mornington Peninsula’s hottest attractions and is only a short walk from the Rye Pier and shopping strip. The heated outdoor pool was great for the cooler weather and the king spa room was perfect for a couples getaway. Highly recommend to anyone, friendly staff made this stay a pleasure.

This place wasn't awful but it also wasn't great. The units have a separate kitchen and living area which is nice. Rooms are comfortable. The shower alternated between really hot and freezing cold, it was not good. Rooms need a fresh coat of paint and we also seemed to have the world's nosiest Fridge which in the middle of the... More

Stayed only one night in the 2 rooms apartment. Very convenient to the shops and beach. Manager Lyn was friendly and helpful and we bought our tickets to the Peninsular hot springs and save $5 each from the internet rate offered online. As mentioned in the review by another patron, booking checking in and out could not be more easy.... More

We spent one night here and wished we had found it the night before so we could have spent two days here. The thing that struck me was the generosity of the place, a large room ,comfortable fittings and everything we needed to cook a meal. There is a personal approach to this place that feels like authentic hospitality offered... More
