The estate and property was beautiful! Service was lovely. The food was great, but just have one suggestion and this is my own personal taste, but I thought there were too many sweets and not enough savoury, I say this because at the end of your three tier delights you get scones with jam and cream. I noticed most people... More

We stayed here as part of a road-trip from Melbourne. This is, provided no one in Australia feels insulted, an English country-house beautifully translated to the Mornington peninsula, with all the expected service, total calm atmosphere and just the right level of attention to the guests. We dined in twice and felt, both times, the kitchen had deliberately set our... More
