“Nice Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2011

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.

It was wonderful to stay there, the room was so comfortable, the staff extremely helpful and the meals were magnificent. It was so cosy the restaraunt area with the open fire place. The grounds were beautiful and we had a relaxing time walking around the estate. Will definitely be going back and taking friends!

We were fortunate to have stayed in one of the lovely Chalet's and from the moment we arrived everything was perfect.
The day spa was a beautiful experience and highly recommended.
Other highlights on our stay was the beautiful lake and its bird life. The food was at a chefs hat standard and I was amazed at how good it was. The staff were well presented, friendly and very good at what they did. The service was impeccable.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to all.

We stayed in the lodge and thought our room was very nice and big - we got a complimentary upgrade which was nice. Dinner in the dining room was rather expensive when you can have similar in the brassery. Brassery was value for money.
Grounds are lovely to walk around and all rooms very asthetically pleasing.
Service was excellent - when we had to leave early one morning - the staff went out of their way to ensure we had breakfast in our room as the dining room was not open and when we wanted to book a winery for lunch, they organised it for us as well.
Small, private, elegant with good service - does not come cheap though.

Room Tip: all good get what you pay for

Our experience at Woodman Estate was most enjoyable. Everything about the place was great. Our family had a marvellous Birthday dinner one of the evenings and the food, service were amazing.
We will certainly be recommending Woodman Estate to any of our Western Australian friends looking for a great holiday experience.
