We booked this as part of a five day trip to the Mornington peninsular - have to say the spa treatments were superb and the restaurant was great but overall we were slightly disappointed. Think the hotel itself is a bit tired and needs work - on checking in we were offered an upgrade for an extra $200, which we...

From the warm and informative welcome to our departure we were looked after in every sense of the word. Our room, a spa suite, looked over the lake and gardens which were superb. The room itself was large but comfy and relaxing with every amenity you could wish for, we really didn't want to leave it! We had a delicious...

Disappointing. We walked in and with no obvious reception area, waited for 15-20mins before recieving any greeting. Then were told our room wasn't ready. Massage booked as part of a package was interupted by noisey guests wandering around as well as noise from other treatement room. Hot water during my shower cut out intermittently replaced with freezing cold water. Very...

Dear Sarah B, Thanks for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor. It is really disappointing your stay and experience was low-light rather than a highlight.

a very nice and enjoyable 2 night stay, the estate has a wonderful feel about it, very relaxing and peaceful. Yes it probably a little work on it, but that is part of the charm, wonderful staff and hosts and brilliant food.

I have stayed here one time before. The hotel is very dated and tired, a lots of dust. When someone walks around in the room above you, you can hear every step this have woken me up(that is how loud it is) so I recommended you bring ear plugs. The food very expensive, you can get more in Mornington.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at Woodman Estate as a sixtieth birthday treat. As my husband is a keen angler, Rick kindly upgraded us to a chalet on the lake, so he was able to put a line in from our private terrace.
