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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was our first time staying at Lon Retreat and I can't wait to return. The setting was beautiful- tucked away but walking distance to a town with some great food, very close to a beautiful and quiet beach, the building and accommodation were beautiful without being stuffy. I immediately felt relaxed walking in- mellow music, serene sitting areas, connected to nature, very easy check-in. We'd ordered dinner for the first night and it was so incredibly delicious and accommodated multiple food allergies. The spa the next day was fabulous- both our massage therapists were perfect and helped my hubby and I get into the relaxation mindset. The indoor pool was refreshing and a nice area to sit and read my book. I loved the honor bar downstairs for late night snacks and wine refill. We woke up in the AM and watched the ships pass through the harbor, listened to the sea breeze and the birds. It really was a stunning setup and just so lovely. I hope that we can escape the city to stay at Lon Retreat again sooner than later!!

We stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The room quality and spa treatments were excellent. The kitchenette was well fitted out, and the local shops at Point Lonsdale were close and good. For those willing to go out for meals or cook this is a great place to stay.

Firstly, the communication by the Lon Retreat team was exemplary, from booking my stay and treatments, understanding how to access the location, a menu should I choose to order, to a beautiful playlist they had provided for the drive, their communication was second to none. As soon as I made my way down the driveway of Lon Retreat I instantly felt like I had slowed down. Check in was friendly and a breeze and I headed straight into a beautiful massage which was a great way to start my stay. The massage was amazing and the staff were lovely and I could even enjoy my grazing platter in my room following the treatment. Upon heading to my room I had a great view and straight away you could tell the quality of everything. From the bedsheets, furniture and kitchen appliances to the bathroom amenities and things such as tea and coffee which were supplied. Every area of Lon Retreat is beautiful and feels welcoming, and while I saw a few people around it felt very secluded and that I could enjoy privacy. The weather wasn't wonderful so I didn't get the opportunity to enjoy the grounds, however it was a great excuse to just stay in my room and simply relax. I loved the breakfast that was supplied in my fridge - special mention to the yummy mushrooms that were perfect on toast. All in all, it was a wonderful and blissful stay for a person that needed some relaxation. Thank you Lon for the wonderful stay.

We had a spa treatment being a massage for 1 hour then a beautiful facial for another hour. The massage was divine and the facial luxurious. We were not rushed and once all completed we were offered a lovely warm tea and glass of sparkling wine.

Stunning at all levels. Lon is a really wonderfully built retreat - double-glazing, sealed, solid and high-quality mean it’s silent, warm and super comfortable even when the weather is rough. Our bed (in Nimbus) was the most comfortable we’ve slept in, facilities excellent, views amazing and the huge bath was a great surprise. Food, booze and service was excellent the whole weekend. Our spa treatment was professional, personal and lovely - staff offered us a bonus steam room experience as time allowed. We walked the property - recommend checking out the Moonah woodland and the owners’ abundant veggie patch. We came home so inspired by the landscaping of the retreat that we’re using it as our muse for a new garden design. Will most certainly be back!

Amazing stay! My partner and I took up their offer on the regional revival package. Katie was so helpful and pleasant to deal with and made us feel so welcome. The retreat is surrounded by beautiful nature, it’s calming, inviting and well designed. Our suite “Cumulus” was WOW amazing! The size, design, ambiance and furnishings were so well thought out. So much detail and thought has gone into this place. It’s a luxury retreat however non pretentious at all. We absolutely loved our stay and will plan to go back for sure. The pool and spa was absolute heaven. Treen from the spa was a delight to deal with she made us feel so relaxed and calm. Thank you Katie and Treen for the fantastic service. My partner and I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who needs to unwind and relax. Do it! Book now.
