We spent two nights here in the Havana Suite and couldn't fault it. Plantation House is an easy walk to the beach, pier and shops, and is situated in a quiet street. The hot springs are a short drive away, and we spent a lovely Sunday using the food and wine map to explore the peninsula. A visit to Heronswood... More

How lucky were my husband and I to find Plantation house! After our original booking fell through we did a quick search to find a place that would suit for our 20th wedding Anniversary. We were not disappointed!! From the moment of our surprise arrival, and the greeting from the lovely Lorraine, to the first spectacular breakfast cooked by Charles,... More

Thank you so much for your review. There are lots of aspects to look at when choosing a place to stay for a special occasion and we were so glad that we could meet your expectations.

We stayed in the upstairs room, self contained with a gorgeous ensuite. It felt separate to the rest of the house, nice and quiet and very relaxing. Great dvd selection and the best part was the delicious breakfast. Great buffet and fabulous menu to choose from for the main. We'd love to come back and recommend this place especially the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We rely on your insights and in this case. The upstairs suite is special, and is on the owners side of the house , so you get to meet Max the cat as well. So glad you got to experience Rye and the Mornington Peninsula as there is lots to do... More

Stayed in the upstairs suite and were thoroughly pleased. Everything seemed very clean. Nice little touches such as chocolates next to the bed, fresh sweets on the bench. Everything that we needed was never a problem. Charlie and his wife love what they do and this transferred into excellent service.

Thank you for your review. Getting to the end of or summer season, remember the Mornington Peninsula is a great place to spend time during all seasons. Plantation House is so warm and cosy. There is so much to do down here including visiting the hot springs and wineries. Hope to see you again. More

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor the B& B was exactly how it was described. The Havana room was perfect and the breakfast out of this world. Definitely need to go back for the wonderful breakfast and courtesy of owners.

Thank you for such a complimentary and thorough review. You certainly described the experience of staying at Plantation House as well as all our amenities.
