“Rip off”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2011

I can't believe the price they charge for accommodation and breakfast....$35 per head for breakfast.....after charging over $300 a night for a small room located in the main house. The function held here was rushed and the staff couldn't wait to get rid of us. I don't think I saw the bar girl smile once, and come 11pm we were basically told to go to our rooms as the common rooms were closed down!
Don't waste your money or time

Room Tip: Not in the main house

We stayed here as part of our anniversary celebration -- found the place via Google and got a package as a gift to my wife. It is definitely not a cheap place to stay in but the stay was worth it. We were offered an upgrade to the best accommodation for an incremental cost and I did not regret going for it. The room was spotless, the views great, service was commendable and food was good too. Will definitely be back in the future.

We recently stayed at the Woodman Estate for a late celebration getaway. The stay was wonderful, the grounds are well kept, and the accommodation was spotless and well appointed. The facilities are also extremely good, we had a spa and also booked in for a massage in the morning. The hosts were friendly and could not have been more helpful. The food was of an extremely good quality - we couldn't fault our stay.

My partner and I stayed at the Woodman Estate lodge on the Mornington Peninsula an hour from Melbourne. The accomodation was updated Victorian; absolutely delightful in decor but updated in terms of amenities. The grounds including a lake were beautifully maintained and filled with birds and wildlife. The many boutique wineries were 15-20 minutes away.

Service was as good as we have ever experienced. Rick, the owner (with his wife), was always around asking if we needed anything and filled with advice on where to go and what to do. Staff was really helpful; one woman was concerned about the air temperature in our room and made a special trip (without us asking) to show us how to adjust the air conditioning.

We ate three breakfasts and two dinners, which were excellent. Again, the service was wonderful. After a hard day of wine tasting :), we needed a quiet evening meal, which the hotel provided,

No concerns or complaints. We stay at top hotels around the world; and the service and ambiance at this small lodge certainly compare favourably.

It was wonderful to stay there, the room was so comfortable, the staff extremely helpful and the meals were magnificent. It was so cosy the restaraunt area with the open fire place. The grounds were beautiful and we had a relaxing time walking around the estate. Will definitely be going back and taking friends!
