We stayed at Hiltonia for a relaxing getaway, loved the idea of themed rooms plus how close it was to the Hot Springs. We stayed in the African themed room and absolutely loved it! It was exactly like the pictures, really private and super cosy. The spa bath was the highlight, not to mention the views and the extremely comfy... More

My husband and I stayed in this B & B in the Mornington Peninsula in January for 4 nights. We loved Hilltonia Homestead's central location across from the Peninsula Springs where we went one evening. The Mediterranean cottage where we stayed was spacious, clean and had a nice warm feeling about it and we loved the peace, quite and privacy... More

Really confused on how to review this place. Great location across the road from hot springs. We booked the African cottage for relaxation and luxury. Room looked beautiful. But in the evening realized the fire place heater actually didn't work. When tried to make a bath there the ants everywhere inside the bath tub and around. Yes I could have... More

I really liked this BnB. Stayed in a themed cottage with my partner, due to its proximity to Peninsula Springs. Was very pleased with the quality and warmth of the room. Had little to do with the hosts due to late arrival and early check out, but everything was made very simple and easy for us. Recommend if going to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed only one night at the Hilltonia Homestead, and we loved it! It was so peaceful and quiet that it seemed we were the only ones there. Our host, Bella, was very kind and welcoming on arrival, and lent us tennis racquets and balls to have a hit on the court right next to the cottage.... More

Booked this place mainly because of its close proximity to Peninsula Hot Springs, which is just across the road. We booked one of the two rooms by the pool, but on arrival were offered a discounted upgrade to one of the themed bungalows. I had checked the bungalows and had been rather keen on the Mediterranean on, due to my... More

Hilltonia Homestead is a beautiful old property 10 minutes from the heart of Rye or a $20 cab fare with Peninsula Cabs. Directly across the road from the hot springs and close to all the wineries it really is in a great location. My partner and I spent 2 nights in the Settlers Cottage for a cosy little weekend away.... More

We stayed in the Coral Cottage for a weekend away to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Great location close to the Hot Springs and not far from the cafes and shops on Point Nepean Rd. The property itself is gorgeous; rolling green hills and gorgeous views over the trees. The Coral cottage overall is very dated and in serious need of... More

We originally booked to stay in one of the Poolside units but when we arrived we were offered an upgrade to one of the themed cottages at a discount. We were glad we did. It was the African themed cottage. It's very private, has a great view with a veranda and a spa bath. I could've stayed inside the whole... More

We stayed in the Victoria Cottage and the location was incredible for a private, romantic getaway. It came with a free breakfast hamper each morning which had more than enough food for a couple. Kitchen facilities were great. Spa was incredible, I loved that we could look out at the incredible view and enjoy nature. Balcony was wonderful for snacking... More
