My partner and I stayed at the Woodman Estate lodge on the Mornington Peninsula an hour from Melbourne. The accomodation was updated Victorian; absolutely delightful in decor but updated in terms of amenities. The grounds including a lake were beautifully maintained and filled with birds and wildlife. The many boutique wineries were 15-20 minutes away.
Service was as good as we have ever experienced. Rick, the owner (with his wife), was always around asking if we needed anything and filled with advice on where to go and what to do. Staff was really helpful; one woman was concerned about the air temperature in our room and made a special trip (without us asking) to show us how to adjust the air conditioning.
We ate three breakfasts and two dinners, which were excellent. Again, the service was wonderful. After a hard day of wine tasting :), we needed a quiet evening meal, which the hotel provided,
No concerns or complaints. We stay at top hotels around the world; and the service and ambiance at this small lodge certainly compare favourably.
