We headed to the Mornington Peninsula for two nights to enjoy Peninsula Hot Springs, only a few minutes' drive away. We were close to all the Rye shops and amenities as well, including the Woolworths supermarket about a km down the road. The managers were super helpful and friendly. Our booking was upgraded from one to two bedrooms so we... More

Had a two bedroom apartment. Was basic but well kept and clean. Bathroom door lock was a little bit of an issue as well had trouble opening it once shut tight. Overall would recommend for family or friends.

My partner and I stayed for the Easter long weekend and we really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in a King Spa Studio room on the ground floor and it was very spacious and accomodating. We loved that we could cook our own meals if we wanted and enjoy a night in. We had no issues with the room,... More

Everything I needed was inside my room & just outside my door I discovered a good selection of restaurants, shops and the Beach. The RSL across the street. Surrounded by sensational Golf Courses and Wineries. I couldn't ask for more. I will recommend it. I will be back soon!

Accommodation and staff are absolutely excellent. Very friendly staff who are only too happy to help. We loved our stay on the 2nd floor over looking the pool and would definitely recommend it. So close to everything and the pool is great 😃

Having stayed in a number of apartments during our trip down under these were a little tired and in need of some modernisation. A central pool dominates the complex with apartments surrounding it. Our apartment was OK but the settee really needed a good clean or replacing. Functional is probably the best way to describe it but with a little... More

Stayed here recently with my wife. I had booked 2 nights over the Australia Day weekend, but unfortunately after trying to check in, discovered that I'd booked for February, not January. The staff were excellent in changing the booking and fortunately had one room left which they discounted to the amount I had already paid. The rooms are basic and... More

Conveniently located within walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. Just 10 mins drive to Portsea for an amazing waterfront dining experience, as well as to the Sorrento Pier for boarding the sea-ferry across to begin our GOR journey. The property is definitely in need of a major makeover. The apartment is spacious but the furnishings looked tired and... More

Hope you'll return to the magnificent Mornington Peninsula to experience many other unique dining venues as well as fabulous tourist attractions. Being beachside, the wind doth blow !!!!! and often is peacefully tranquil. Yes, wish we could guarantee perfect Wifi. We too, in reception, often have to be patient for Wifi.
