The hotel has had major renovations, very tasteful. We stayed in Room 1. Very comfortable, amazing continental breakfasts. Good food in restaurant. Very obliging. Great view to ocean. My only negative was the stairs to the first floor, narrow steps, didn't feel overly safe negotiating them. A lift to the first floor would top it off. Having said that would... More

It is at least five years since we last stayed at the Royal Hotel. We originally found it a most romantic venue, but the last time we visited we disappointingly found it old and jaded. Fortunately, under new owners it has been refurbished and restored to its former glory. We came for lunch and found the fare interesting and reasonably... More

Food disgusting they had heated our meal in the microwave and it was incredibly hot that it burnt my mouth. The food was swimming in oil and when l complained they didn't seem to care at all. Got it money and didn't care about the customer. I would not recommend anyone eat here l now have bad heartburn and a... More

We recently got married at The Royal and it was superb. Outstanding service and attention to detail, as well as the delicious menu. Euan and the team at The Royal provided fabulous guidance, suggestions and options. For those looking for a wedding venue, The Royal has many size options. The menu was a very high standard and not expensive for... More

We have been to the royal many times over the past few years since the new owners took over and commenced their restoration. The food is always good quality, the portions are always great. The services always friendly and if you are lucky, you can get a table with a view of the bay. There is also public bar area... More

A beautiful old hotel newly renovated. The decorations is modern and inviting. The small balcony overlooking Port Phillip Bay tops it off. The food is simple but delicious. Totally recommend to stay in this quaint seaside town of Mornington.

We overnighted on Christmas Eve and were very happy with our decision. The building combines old world charm with modern taste. Our room had a balcony and view overlooking the ocean. I can highly recommend sorting out on the balcony to enjoy the lovely continental breakfast. The venue has it all, we had a family lunch with the extended family,... More

Just over a month ago my partner and I got married on the beach in front of the Royal Hotel on the Mornington Peninsula. The Royal is our favourite hotel, the mix of exquisite renovations and perfect styling coupled with the extraordinary food and attentive staff made it the obvious choice for our wedding reception. From my first meeting with... More

Last minute overnighter to escape the city heatwave. Great location on the waterfront and beautiful town. The staff of the hotel were fantastic, super friendly and suer helpful. Problem with hot water failure was well compensated and communicated superbly. The deluxe suite upstairs was expensive but well worth the splurge for a romantic getaway in a beautiful historic hotel. Food... More
