This was my first ever visit to the RACV facility at Cape Schanck. I was here attending a work conference with a two night stay. Upon approach, the three cranes constructing the new resort facilities are very visible in the skyline. Once inside it's understandable why the cranes are there. The current facilities at this place have reached the end...

A lovely golf course environment, wonderful vistas. Reception staff and process excellent. Dinner excellent, not too many options, enough to satisfy and not confuse. Our only recommendation is to label the glutenfree options at breakfast. A big plus was not having gluten free bread having to go through the toaster everyone else uses causing cross contamination. It was done in...

We enjoyed two nights at RACV Cape Schank. The premium ocean view room had amazing views, was spacious and had every comfort needed. The buffet breakfast was wonderful. The resort is close to many attractions. The bay beaches and ocean beaches. Sorrento for shopping and the intetesting and historical old Quarantine station at Point Nepean. We ate at the resort...

The RACV report at Cape Schanck is set around a lovely golf course and sits just outside a national park. The wineries around Red Hill are also a short drive away. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa. The villa itself was large and clean, but simple and a little dated. The living room was huge but we did notice...

We stayed at the RACV Resort in Cape Schanck to pick up an early morning walk out of Point Nepean. We were four women, so the villa accommodation with two twin bedrooms, both with en-suites was perfect. It had a large living/dining/kitchen area, so plenty of room. It was a 7 minute easy walk to the resort where we had...

Enjoyed an overnight stay in the ocean rooms. Great staff, gorgeous view, lovely breakfast. Rooms were clean and airy, staff were friendly and warm. Highly recommend. We were visiting the hot springs and the hotel is an easy 20 minute drive. We'll be back.

My wife and I stayed at the RACV resort in an Oceanview room in early November 16. The Oceanview rooms are a few hundred metres from the main reception/restaurant/clubhouse building, located on the hillside looking over Gunnamatta Beach to the ocean. You can see past the heads to Ocean Grove on a good day. There is a path to the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. It’s here that the historic Cape Schanck Lighthouse sits proudly on the rocky headland guiding ships through one of the world’s most dangerous stretches of water into safe harbour. 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
