Reviewed 9 February 2014

We stayed here for 4 days at the end of Jan, staff were great and the motel is central to the Rye shops and an easy drive to Sorrento or Frankston. Pool was wonderful. Motel was very quiet and had easy access although people do seem to have trouble parking in their correct spot. all in all would absolutely stay there again whether it be with my partner or my kids.

Room Tip: as for a room overlooking the pool

Stayed 4 nights immed. prior to school hols. Booking and reception/checkout easy, thanks to Abbey, all staff were most helpful & friendly. Upgrade volunteered when booking, as we cldn't manage stairs, being Seniors. Rooms spacious and clean with ample kitchen and bedding items. Location is great - no thru traffic, fairly quiet, yet just off Hwy. opposite jetty, easy walk to restaurants, etc. We'd be happy to return.

Room Tip: Stairs a bit steep if mobility a problem. Explain any special needs when booking - they'll try...

Moonlight Bay Resort is perfectly situated close to Mornington Peninsula’s hottest attractions and is only a short walk from the Rye Pier and shopping strip. The heated outdoor pool was great for the cooler weather and the king spa room was perfect for a couples getaway. Highly recommend to anyone, friendly staff made this stay a pleasure.

Room Tip: King Spa Room was fantastic.

This place wasn't awful but it also wasn't great. The units have a separate kitchen and living area which is nice. Rooms are comfortable. The shower alternated between really hot and freezing cold, it was not good. Rooms need a fresh coat of paint and we also seemed to have the world's nosiest Fridge which in the middle of the night without the bedroom door closed was loud enough to wake you. Also was woken by the sound of the cafe next door tipping all their bottles out at the end of the night.

The pool and spa were good and also heated. The staff were very friendly.

I have stayed at the place next door as well and if I was going back again I would pick next door over Moonlight Bay.

Stayed only one night in the 2 rooms apartment. Very convenient to the shops and beach. Manager Lyn was friendly and helpful and we bought our tickets to the Peninsular hot springs and save $5 each from the internet rate offered online. As mentioned in the review by another patron, booking checking in and out could not be more easy. On the other hand, did not have any problem using wifi in our apartment as experienced by another reviewer.

Room Tip: We had apartment 12 which is next to the exit and very convenient.

We spent one night here and wished we had found it the night before so we could have spent two days here. The thing that struck me was the generosity of the place, a large room ,comfortable fittings and everything we needed to cook a meal. There is a personal approach to this place that feels like authentic hospitality offered with warmth and charm.
Thank you
