“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed 8 March 2007

Our stay was for 3 nights in one of the Lakeside Chalets. We had already paid a deposit, so check in was quick and efficient. The chalet itself, one of 4 on the lake, was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is delivered to the chalet, which is fine, but making your own tea, coffee and toast was unexpected. We dined at the restaurant on one evening, well presented and fresh. However, request for pre-dinner martini was met with blank stare, seems that the bar area is limited in the extreme. So, glass of bubbly it was.
The 2 main issues?
First were the squadrons of flying insects at night, completely impossible to sit on the outside deck after dusk. Great shame.
Second was the requested 4% surcharge for using Amex to settle the account. I declined and used VISA, but if they don't like the terms they should not offer the card.
Overall though, a pleasant stay and a good centre from which to explore the Mornington Peninsula.

An overnight stay on the Mornington Peninsular. We stayed in the main house in the room overlooking the lake. Stayed for dinner, which was superb (accompanied by the house Pinot Noir - also very good). The chef is clearly experienced!

Excellent food, good service and very nice accommodations in a lovely setting.

  • Liked — Excellent Restaurant, and very nice surroundings
  • Disliked — It is a little isolated.
  • Tips/Secrets — Definitely take dinner in the restaurant

Unfortunately our stay at Woodman Estate was less than impressive...to say the least. It was to be the luxurious end to our trip around Victoria but instead just left us with a bad taste in our mouth.

The food was less than average and the customer service was no better. We were pretty much the only couple in the restaurant and we still could not get any service. At $645 per night you would assume that a little customer service would be included.

The accomodation was quite small and very disappointing. My wife was the one that convinced me to book here as she had done her homework on the onsight Spa and was eyeing off a number of treatments. Between the time that we booked and our actual stay the pricing had risen quite substanitally and the staff had changed. My wife decided that due to our whole bad experience that she would instead go to a local independant Spa that was much cheaper and alot more friendly.

All in all we will not be recommending Woodman Estate to anyone.

  • Liked — Nothing
  • Disliked — Everything
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't bother

We stayed at the Woodman Estate this February as part of our 3 week trip around South Eastern Australia. We absolutely loved this hotel. It is quiet, relaxing and really gives you much needed downtime on a long trip. We really like that it was small and intimate and felt like we were staying at a friend's country house rather than like being at a hotel. It was also well located to reach any of the attractions on Mornington Peninsula, such as the vineyards or the dolphin swims at Sorrento. But those of you who are looking for a big bustling hotel with night life - this is not the place for you. The spa looks fabulous, although we were too busy to partake of it. And the food was fantastic, although if you have any special dietary needs you need to let them know well in advance.
