We stayed here for the Australia day weekeend. The hotel is upstairs with no formal reception, in fact the reception thought we were there for lunch. We we were checked in through the upstairs office. The room has amazing views of the sea and had a nice ambience. The only issue we had was the bathroom was slightly grimy, the... More

Only stayed one night but thoroughly enjoyed it. The Premium Suite was compact but well-appointed and it had private access to the balcony with sweeping views of the bay, even a distant Melbourne skyline. After a drink on the downstairs verandah, we enjoyed dinner in the restaurant. Service was very good. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the... More

We recently decided to get out of Melbourne for the weekend and headed only 1 hour from town to Mornington. We stopped for dinner at the Royal Hotel and we can't speak highly enough about the food and especially the service. Our waitress Catherine went the extra mile for us and made our experience very enjoyable and we will certainly... More

i'm afraid that this was priced at the higher end but failed in basic service etiquette . The bad habit of Australian Front of House staff to point to a table and say thats yours is not what you expect. The menu on the table (paper) was also mumbled to be looked at for meals and drink, no mention of... More

Just back from the Royal Hotel where so much has been happening since our last visit. More tables outdoors at both the tavern and the restaurant overlooking the ocean. New menu which was interesting, and catering for gluten free which was good. You can fly into Melbourne, get a bus connection out to Frankston and from there another bus to... More

We recently booked to celebrate a friend's birthday - table for seven. The waiter was totally disinterested, not that he was busy ie only three other tables occupied. He served us water, then we had to send out a search party to find him again. Eventually our orders were taken with some disdainful comments. Drinks were served eventually - food... More

Booking in was a challenge as there was no reception desk. Finally worked it out to to be taken to a room with just one chair. I stood up through the paperwork. Room was OK although couldn't get out on the balcony because plant holder had fallen over against the door. The plastic plants were everywhere. Sorted that out with... More

On a recent trip down the Peninsula, something we do regularly, we called into Mornington`s Royal Hotel and were far from disappointed. The atmosphere is alive and the provincial style decor crisp and welcoming. The service is very good with plenty of attentive young staff eager to assist. Their knowledge of the menu could be better for the style of... More

Been a few years since last visited this lovely hotel on the Esplanade. It has been totally refurbished, ( in keeping with the history) ,excellent food and lovely staff. Book a table near the window and enjoy your meal while looking out over Port Phillip Bay.
