A place where tranquility meets modern luxury - welcome to this unique contemporary HOTEL. Just over an hour from Melbourne, George's Boutique Bed and Breakfast at Arthurs Seat is located on the idyllic Mornington Peninsula. Your Mornington Peninsula accommodation here is a stone's throw from award-winning wineries, quality local produce, world class golf courses, marine activities, art galleries, walking tracks and natural spa treatments. The base for your stay is an architecturally designed masterpiece. The stunning Port Phillip Bay views from the balcony alone make the stay worthwhile. George's isn't just another HOTEL. George's hosts an exclusive gourmet cooking school retreat. The retreat runs periodically throughout the year, catering from beginner to budding chef extraordinaire. We run intimate group settings, 8 per group, so you will always have access to our master chef instructor. Each retreat will have its own theme, perhaps with a Tuscan or Moroccan based feel selecting the finest produce from local markets. When you're not cooking up a storm maybe a spa treatment or round of golf might interest you. Whatever your taste our themes are sure to satisfy! Inside, local art lines the walls among boutique style modern furnishing and your sanctuary away from it all is completed by king size beds with crisp white linen (Egyptian cotton) and a thoughtful collection of pillow fillings. No detail has been left unattended. The invitation is yours - indulgence awaits.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From the moment we walked through our suite door and onto our private balcony we knew we were in paradise. Our room was spacious with everything one would need - pure luxury however, it didn’t stop there. We had booked the four course dinner which was matched perfectly with local wines... Chef George Skaliotis certainly did not disappoint, each plate was a masterpiece and the flavours of the dishes presented to us was truly amazing. The intimate setting allowing maximum of 8 adults at any one time meant the staff were extremely attentive and the waitress we had was very knowledgeable in each course and explained where each wine came from. Breakfast the following morning was amazing. Exceptional service, stunning location, it truly was a very special experience and worth every cent! Our only negative was we had to leave however, we will be back! Thank you to the team from Mark and Carolyn

We spent a lovely two day weekend at George's. The room was very well furnished and very comfortable, with a nice view. The highlight however was the two dinners, which were simply excellent, with good matching wines. The dining room is unassuming but attractive - the food outstanding. We have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world, and George's cuisine would have at the very least One Michelin Star, if not Two. Exceeded expectations.

If you have a special occasion to celebrate, the accommodation, food & service is on point.
Such opulence and comfort, beautifully styled in a serene setting. From a view over the sea, with a vineyard out the front and kangaroos grazing nearby to the most comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom products.
Would love to come back. Thank you for helping us celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary in style!

We booked through Emirates Skywards Hotels, paying with Emirates Miles. A few days before our stay, we had another lockdown, and George's Boutique Hotel would not allow to rebook at a later time, even though we offered to stay during the week.
Rocketmiles (all hotel bookings and payments are managed by Rocketmiles when using Emirates points) were very helpful trying to negotiate. They reached out to the owner of the hotel to request to change the dates on our behalf. However, despite their efforts, our request was not approved by the hotel. Rocketmiles apologised for the outcome. The new owner of George's Boutique Hotels & Culinary Retreat was very rude.

Where do we start?
We booked through Qantas and were charged the price for suite 2 (the most expensive room). When we arrived, we were given room 4 - which is basically a dungeon without windows. After much back and forth with the owner, we moved to room 5, which at least has a window, but no view.
No culinary experience because the restaurant is closed - which was not pointed out prior.
The lounge room is locked, so it's not even possible to enjoy the view or the fire place.
The owner was very unfriendly and unaccommodating.

Very negative experience as Georges has changed ownership and the new owners would not honour our fully pre paid booking resulting in a significant cost to us and no stay. No response was received from either the new owners or previous owner when we requested clarification of the arrangements made at the time the property was sold for pre paid bookings . We can only assume others would have also lost deposits or full payment as a consequence of the sale.
The initial ( only) communication from the new owner was lacking in consumer focus and did not comply with normal expectations for business communication.
We would not recommend Georges or stay in the future after this experience .

Booked two nights thinking we were getting a ‘boutique hotel’. Restaurant not open, no one around to assist - totally deserted.
Dealing with the owner was interesting. Was told she was two hours away and could not help, offered for us to leave with a full refund. We agreed to stay as it was around 5pm and we had nowhere else to go. Woke up the next morning to a text asking us to vacate and we had until 12noon and again offering us a refund for the second night.
We agreed to leave as it really was not up to a scratch.
When following up the offer to refund ($650) was told it was reneged and we could take them to the small claims court.
We did get our money back as we put the charge in dispute with our bank for a service we paid for and did not receive. Thank goodness we saved all text and email exchanges.
A very poor experience of hospitality. Will never go back or recommend

No restaurant, no service, no view!!!! This was such a terrible experience. I’ve never seen anything like it. Such a lie: culinary retreat!!!! OMG nothing like that. There’s no staff on site to help with anything.
Rooms are small, no armchair or any chair in the room. Barely enough space for the bed.
Avoid this place. The pictures are a trap.

Like a few reviews on here booked and paid in full and change of ownership not honouring the booking. Refused to answer emails and still doing so. They would not forward any details - have raised the issue with ACCC and waiting for a response.

I had a voucher with no expiration date and went to phone to make a booking . New owners and they said they will not honor the voucher as from previous owner even though it didn't have an expiry date. They were rude and abrupt and said it was my problem!
