My wife and I had the pleasure of Frank's and Helen's hospitality for one night at the Orchard on 22/23 June and it was just memorable. We were visiting Melbourne and thought we would spend a night in the Mornington peninsular and picked the Orchard based on reviews we had seen. I must say that all the good things we read were true, and then some. We were greeted warmly and shown our room which was just lovely. Comfortable, cosy, charming and with amenities akin what you would get in high end hotels in the city (we had just come from the Grand Hyatt, Melbourne).The view from the room was just lovely. Thoughtful personal touches were welcoming with help with dinner reservations (at the Long Table, a must) and freshly "Helen made" cookies to keep us going in the windy outdoors. Breakfast was just mind blowing! Helen, you are a master chef with a passion for food! We spent two hours eating and chatting over breakfast and got to know our hosts better which was just the way to start a morning. In fact after learning about our interest in music, they helped us organise tickets to watch a recital back in Melbourne where we got to see world renowned Nemanja Dadulovic. Local knowlege on the surroundings made our short stay in the region all the more memorable. We can't wait to come back to the Orchard and look forward to bringing our kids to show them the beautiful surroundings.
