We had a wonderful stay at Plantation House! It was so homely, relaxing, inviting and absolutely spotless! Charlie and Loraine do a wonderful job here! Highly recommend for anyone who is travelling down to Mornington for a midweek or weekend get away! :)

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 taking the time to review us. We aim to keep our standards high. We established Plantation House in 2004, a sea change, and our enthusiasm is still there. We have made many improvements along the way to make a better and more comfortable stay for our guests and we still serve an amazing breakfast each morning. Thank... More

Lovely night away - we were greeted by the owner when we arrived who was very friendly. Beautiful room and delicious breakfast. Tea and coffee available in the dining room and huge choice of dvds. Would definitely recommend and we would love to go back!

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.

My wife and I spent a Saturday night as a quick break away from the kids and wanted somewhere quiet and relaxing. After reading the reviews this seemed like the perfect getaway, and they were right. We stayed in the upstairs suite which is larger than the other rooms and probably quieter. Wonderful standard of accommodation and lovely friendly service... More

We stayed at Plantation House for 1 night. We loved the location, the room and the ambiance of the place. Charles was the perfect host and made us feel so welcome.

We love our location as it is very private yet so close to the beach only two minutes walk to Rye's front beach, but within walking distance to shops and restaurants.

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. We established "Plantation House at Whitecliffs" in 2003 in what was a run down but very unique house once known as "Windsor Court". With much renovation it has become one of the best traditional bed... More
