We were amazed at how quiet it was around the site, considering the renovations underway. These did not affect our stay in any way because you don't hear the construction work once inside the reception, clubhouse, restaurant and accommodation and on the golf course. The accommodation is well away from the construction site. The bed was very comfortable, the room...

We stayed for our 11 year wedding anniversary and had the best time. We were kid free so it was exceptionally enjoyable but I wouldn't hesitate to come back with the kids as they would love it also. The rooms are neat and clean, beds so comfortable, showers just lovely...but best of all is the view. Simply breathtaking!! We spent...

Remote country club style location having excellent golf facilities and also leisurely walks around the complex, in particular after dinner to enjoy the stunning sunsets and ocean views. Ideally located for short drive into Portsea, Sorento, Rye, Flinders and many vinyards for lunch. Construction of a new hotel development may impact experience over the next year but Ocean View rooms...

This was my first ever visit to the RACV facility at Cape Schanck. I was here attending a work conference with a two night stay. Upon approach, the three cranes constructing the new resort facilities are very visible in the skyline. Once inside it's understandable why the cranes are there. The current facilities at this place have reached the end...

A lovely golf course environment, wonderful vistas. Reception staff and process excellent. Dinner excellent, not too many options, enough to satisfy and not confuse. Our only recommendation is to label the glutenfree options at breakfast. A big plus was not having gluten free bread having to go through the toaster everyone else uses causing cross contamination.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the southern-most tip of Victoria’s glorious Mornington Peninsula, RACV Cape Schanck Resort looks out over rugged Bass Strait and Western Port Bay. It’s here that the historic Cape Schanck Lighthouse sits proudly on the rocky headland guiding ships through one of the world’s most dangerous stretches of water into safe harbour. And it’s here that this contemporary resort is set on one of the most striking coastal golf courses in Australia, offering expansive cliff-top views. While the Robert Trent Jones-designed course is ranked one of the top 100 courses in Australia, there’s a lot more to the resort, and the region for that matter, other than golf. With coastal beauty, rolling countryside, some of Victoria’s best Pinot producing wineries, galleries, produce makers and historic villages, the resort is ideally positioned for a weekend of wine tasting, exploring country markets or gazing out across the fairways to the blue Southern Ocean beyond.Our exclusive coastal accommodation in Victoria offers stylish rooms, suites or house size villas decked out in warm, contemporary décor, with luxurious interiors, balconies and every modern convenience. So kick back on your private balcony with a glass of local Pinot Noir, watch a magical sunset and listen to the ocean waves roll in. ... more   less
