“Excellent value close to best golf courses on Mornington Peninsula”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2009

I've stayed at Fairways for close to three weeks on separate trips in late 2008 and in October of 2009. The rooms are spacious and clean. I had a relaxing stay this October and was able to play golf at Moonah Links, The Dunes, St. Andrews Beach, and The National Golf Club. All are not much more than a ten minute drive. Rosebud Country Club, adjacent to Fairways is a quality parkland style course for those less interested in links type golf with massive bunkering at the other nearby layouts.

There is convenient shopping nearby for items you can store in the refigerator provided and a number of good restaurants within a 15 minute drive. Mornington is more like 20 minutes away and Portsea and Sorrento are about the same driving time. Fairways is quiet and it seems well equipped to handle those on golf outings. They can provide good information about nearby courses.

In my opinion, Mornington Peninsula is one of the best golf destinations anywhere and when you consider other factors such as cost per round on courses like the ones mentioned above, it is a golf destination I have visited the past three years and intend to visit over and over.

And when I travel there, Fairways will be my first choice for a place to stay.

The layout of the buildings is nothing special but it was a nice and clean motel. We stayed in the spa sweet, the room was quite large and there was a private small yard.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2007

My husband and I stayed at the Fairways Resort for 2 nights in March 2007. There is nothing particularly special looking about the building but the rooms were very roomy with good finishings. We stayed in the standard hotel room (and secured a special deal of $120 per night).

The bathroom had a large shower recess with a modern glass door and black marble vanity top. Towels and complimentary soap and shampoo were provided.

The bed was quite large and comfortable (and spacious!). The room was painted with modern metallic paint with a feature wall.

The Resort was centrally located and we explored Red Hill and the surrounding tourist attractions with ease. The Resort is also 15 minutes drive from the Peninsula Hot Springs.

Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and would return to this clean and comfortable accommodation.

This is a brand new motel at the Rosebud Country Club. We booked a Family Suite. It had a separate bedroom with 2 twin beds for my sons, age 3 and 5. The main room had a king-size bed, mini bar with a bar fridge, toaster, and kettle. It also had glasses, plates, cutlery, and coffee & tea. The room was large and immaculate, the sheets and towels were soft, and the bathroom was very nice. The room was well thought out. Everything you needed was there. There was a tv of course and a table/chairs. It also had a private patio with table/chairs.

This was the best hotel room I've stayed in because of how clean it was and how well it was laid out. You didn't feel cramped/crowded. Everything was nice. Upon check-in the staff called a few restaurants for us to make a booking. Very nice.

Highly recommended!
