A group of four, we were celebrating a friends 60th Birthday.

We were on the ground floor with patio doors to a large terrace. The rooms are very spacious, warm and very comfortable. Plenty of tea and coffee oh and biscuits too. Large wardrobe space and plenty of drawers. Good lighting, large bathroom with shower over that was immaculately clean. Plenty of fresh clean towels and a daily maid service. My only disappointment were the evening meals that really were not to my taste and I didn't think of a great quality however, breakfast was consistently good.

There is loads to do within the four hotel complex to suit ALL ages, far too many to list you really don't need to leave the complex at all. We enjoyed the nightly entertainment especially Paul Cobley.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms with terrace are good, can't comment on other floors rooms.

We stayed on a 4-night bowls holiday and had a wonderful time. We can only reiterate all the positive points on previous reviews, especially with regard to the very good food and friendly, helpful staff. Many of the bowlers went as part of a team but my husband and I went on our own. We were partnered by two local bowlers who were great fun and extremely helpful. It was a really nice break and one we hope to repeat in the future. Thank you Toorak.

Room Tip: Nice views from front-facing rooms.

Stayed for 3 nights booked by our ballroom dance class. Rooms are quite basic but clean and good value. Toorak is part of a huge complex of about 3 hotels all sharing some facilities. Food was excellent, bar prices reasonable, staff very friendly and helpful. Located about 10 mins walk from the main promenade. This Hotel caters for guests who are unfortunate to suffer poor weather. Wonderful large indoor swimming pool including separate children's pool,outdoor pool, Spa etc. Large indoor bowls centre, 4 lane 10 pin bowling, large games area including several full size snooker tables, Cabaret( although we did not watch it so I can't comment. We had private use of one of the ballrooms with its own bar which was excellent. I believe the hotel is rated as 3 star and I would definitely recommend it as good value.

We had a group of 25 staying at the Toorak in September. It was the first tour our club had taken for at least ten years. The help from Terri at the beginning of the planning was very much appreciated. This was followed by expert help again in sorting out matches and transport and arranging our rooms by the team of Sarah and Suzy.
We arrived to get changed for our first match in the afternoon and as expected our rooms were not all available. We arrived soon after 1.0 and we had been told rooms ready from 3.0pm so this was not a problem. A room was available for a quick change, and also a storage room for our cases for those of us waiting for a room. The receptionists were all very friendly and helpful at all times.

The meals were all excellent with a good variety of dishes. Chef had been told that 3 people
did not eat garlic and it was very good to see a separate menu showing which dishes were suitable for them.

On the Saturday the service was rather slow as many of the staff were helping at another function in the hotel. However, it was not really an inconvenience.

The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. On the complex you can find quiet rooms for just sitting and chatting, bars where you can enjoy company and then the large bar with entertainment being offered. This arrangement suited our group very well.

The swimming pools, gym, ten pin bowling and indoor bowling rinks were all enjoyed and appreciated.

A return visit is very much on the cards . I had the opportunity to visit the Spa on a previous visit and if I had the time would have gone back there on this visit.

Room Tip: Between us we had rooms on all floors and no one had problems with noise. The layout is good. If y...

We are regulars to the Big Band Weekend and usually stay in the Victoria but this year decided to try the Toorak.
The bedroom was fantastic - big enough to dance in with two walk-in wardrobes.
As with the Victoria the food was excellent with friendly and efficient waitresses on our table.
We were with a group of fourteen so we had a table to ourselves and we shall certainly come to TLH again and stay at the Toorak

Room Tip: We all had sea view rooms although we were on the ground floor and were not able to see the sea but...

We had mixed feelings about this hotel. Some rooms on the first floor, including ours are not accessible from a lift and although the staff will take your bags to your room, we were part of a larger group, who were arriving at the same time, more or less, causing delays. The room and the hallways were not spotless - we noticed rubbish on some stairs leading to a fire escape - it was there when we arrived and still there four days later when we left. The room was large, but to say that the mattress was firm, was the understatement of the year. In fairness perhaps we might have got it changed if we had mad a fuss.The bathroom was huge and yet there was only one shelf (approximately 24" X 3") to put out all the accessories we bring on holiday.

On the plus side the manager quickly agreed to have a table put in the bathroom. All the staff we encountered were very attentive and looking to please. We had booked half board. The evening meal was good value, well presented and the breakfasts had good choice.

There seemed to be more parking available than on previous visits. The facilities on off for sport and relaxation are excellent, with a great swimming pool and indoor bowls. Would we stay there again? On balance - yes.

Room Tip: Ask for a room accessible by lift.

This complex of four hotels, the Toorak being one of them is worth a visit just for the exploring value. All four hotels make up the THL Leisure Resort. We have stayed in the Toorak a couple of times now. You can walk from the Toorak at one end right through all the other hotels to the fourth one at the other end. Each one has it's own star rating and various activities, spas, bars, restaurants, amusements etc and to go up and down and roundabout exploring these is great fun. You come across different themed bars and outside spaces, decks, pools, sports bars. There is just about everything here the list too long to mention but we had great fun. Back to the Toorak, our rooms have been adequate, clean if a little tired but no complaints. The food was acceptable, we were there as part of a conference so we had pre-arranged food, I cannot comment off the menu. Staff very friendly and the grounds very pretty. Would stay again.
