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.
