The hotel provided a great base from which to explore the peninsula. Flinders is far quieter and less developed than some of the better known towns on the peninsula, yet all the area’s major attractions are within an easy drive.
The food on offer at the hotel was excellent. We found we could also, over dinner, enjoy a glass or two of the wines the Mornington Peninsula is renowned for without having to worry about driving.
Quarters, with 40 rooms, is located next to the hotel. My room was extremely clean, bright and comfortable. The only disappointment was my patio – it was on the same level as the car park. Fortunately or not, the weather was not conducive to sitting outdoors so it wasn’t a major problem. However had I wanted to sit outside with some level of privacy I might have been disappointed. If I was to return I would probably request an upstairs room which may offer a better outlook and greater privacy.

How Did It Rate
The general ambience of the room. It was clean, comfortable, bright and well maintained.
The amenities which included Aveda products in the bathroom and quality tea bags (T2). There was also a good sized working desk while the large television included some cable stations.
The Wi-Fi – it was quick and free.
The bathroom design. There was sizeable bench space both next to and above the bathroom basin, which was both stylish and practical. The water from the large walk-in shower was hot and reliable.
The continental breakfast included in the tariff. The food on offer was fresh and plentiful. Particularly impressive were the smoothies and gluten free bread and `exclusive gluten toaster’.
The positioning of the patio and lack of privacy.
The two sitting chairs in the room could have been more comfortable.
