“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

My daughter and I stayed one night during the week. Excellent service at check-in, restaurant for dinner & breakfast was top quality, our Premium Ocean View room was beautifully presented and then again at check-out we had very polite service. Have already stayed here before with friends and will definitely be staying again. Only a few minutes drive to the hot pools which was great. Thanks for such a wonderful time.

Room Tip: Choose a Premier Ocean View Upstairs room. The views are beautiful.

We spent 3 nights in an Ocean View Executive Suite, with another couple of friends. Very comfortable 2 bedroom suite, with great views of the ocean from large glass windows and 3 balconies. The bedrooms were on different levels, providing enough privacy, with the common areas great to get together. The restaurant was fabulous, serving a full buffet breakfast each morning, and equipped with a fantastic juicer that enabled you to make your own juice with fruit, celery, beetroot, and carrots. The seafood platter for 2 on Friday night was superb.
The golf course appeared to be in excellent condition, with very undulating areas surrounding the greens, and bunkers providing additional challenge. We didn't play, but I am advised one needs a cart to get around. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

I surprised my fiancée for his birthday with a pamper package via the RACV Cape Schank resort. This included a night in the premium ocean view room and a day at the Peninsula Hot Springs, including a massage.
The location is breathtaking and serene. The views were incredibly beautiful. The room was very clean and well maintained, and comfortable. The manger agreed to a bottle of wine on arrival.
I cannot stop speaking about how divine the food at the restaurant was, both at dinner and breakfast. The staff were very friendly, helpful and down to earth. They made us smile the entire time that we were there.
Late check out at 11am was a bonus also. There are wonderful facilities for guests including a pool, spa and recreation area.
We are now planning to have our wedding at this incredible venue.

Dear Talia O

Wow! You have no idea how pleasing it is when we receive feedback like this. We’re so glad that we could make your special occasion getaway such a memorable one (agreed, an 11am checkout definitely helps!).

If you haven’t already, make sure that you check out our Facebook page for details of the up and coming Bridal Expo – we’d love to see you there. Not only will we be showcasing our facilities, but we'll also have quite a few suppliers onsite to answer any questions that you might have from flowers to photo booths.

Golf course looked good but didn't get a a chance to play was was there for a 2 day conference for work. Facilities are good , a little dated however it has a certain charm about it. The Villas are nice , i was in a 7 person villa and we all had a good nights sleep. Took us a while to find the place as the grounds are sparse and there was not much street lighting at night. nevertheless it was a good stay and i would stay again with my wife for a weekend getaway.

Room Tip: If your'e going up for a golf weekender then book a villa close to the clubrooms.

Thanks so much for your feedback DaHoneymoonerz – its always great to hear from those who have enjoyed their stay during a conference. Sounds like perhaps you’ll need to return for a golfing trip ! RACV members save on both golf and accommodation, and six golfers can “Stay & Play” from just $115 per night. Or you could take advantage of our winter specials and treat your wife to a stay at Cape Schanck, spending your days relaxing, wining and dining. Winter is a fantastic time to spend on the Mornington Peninsula and we hope that you can be a part of it.

We had a premium ocean view room and it was well worth the little extra paid for it. The room was modern and had all you could want. Had a Balcony where you can sit and enjoy the ocean view whilst enjoying a local wine that you picked up on the way down, before heading to dinner. It even had a nespresso machine with pods, Never tried one before and never will again.At your convenience a Heated infinity pool and Spa. Gym at no extra to Guests. Lounge and Restaurant are a short walk along a boardwalk. It also has a Golf Course.Food and Drink in the restaurant is high quality and the staff are extremely friendly, It is not as cheap as a pub bistro. Only 11 km from Rosebud and 12 Km from Flinders and in the wine region there are many other options available. Buffet breakfast is included and is absolutely sensational in quality and abundance. Did not need lunch.So many things to do close by including Peninsula Springs, Cape Schank Light house, Golf Courses, Horse riding, Sight seeing just to mention a few

A good resort at a beautiful location. The rooms are spacious and clean. The balcony provides stunning views of the ocean and the heated pool is simply fantastic (even on a colder day).

My partner and I enjoyed using the table tennis and tennis facilities and found the check out and check in experience smooth and efficient.

Negatives - food was of a poor standard in the lounge

Good location. We paid for a unit with sea views on the upper level, views were lovely. Restaurant food and service very good. Golf expensive if you need to hire equipment. Plenty of great places to visit on the peninsula

Dear heather C

Its so pleasing to hear that you enjoyed your stay in one of our upper level Premium Ocean View Rooms. With premium amenities (including a Nespresso pod machine and L’Occitane natural skincare products) in addition to the stunning views overlooking Bass Strait they really are a cut above the rest.

We are also glad that you had the chance to enjoy the golf and dining facilities at the resort. We do find that our club hire fees are quite competitive compared to other Peninsula golf courses, and with the additional member savings on golf rounds it means that it is quite affordable for a spur of the moment game – even if you haven’t brought your clubs!

Thank you heather C for taking the time to post your review, we look forward to welcoming you back to the Mornington Peninsula.

Best regards

Located at the southern-most tip of Victoria’s glorious Mornington Peninsula, RACV Cape Schanck Resort looks out over rugged Bass Strait and Western Port Bay.

And it’s here that this contemporary resort is set on one of the most striking coastal golf courses in Australia, offering expansive cliff-top views. While the Robert Trent Jones-designed course is ranked one of the top 100 courses in Australia, there’s a lot more to the resort, and the region for that matter, other than golf. With coastal beauty, rolling countryside, some of Victoria’s best Pinot producing wineries, galleries, produce makers and historic villages, the resort is ideally positioned for a weekend of wine tasting, exploring country markets or gazing out across the fairways to the blue Southern Ocean beyond.Our exclusive coastal accommodation in Victoria offers stylish rooms, suites or house size villas decked out in warm, contemporary décor, with luxurious interiors, balconies and every modern convenience. So kick back on your private balcony with a glass of local Pinot Noir, watch a magical sunset and listen to the ocean waves roll in. ... more   less
