The double spa is lovely the room is quite nice and the quilt/bed is very comfy. With the front room being directly beside the nepean hwy there are cars all night long. The balcony however cute needs work done on it to look like someone cares. The young man behind the front desk was polite but was dressed like he...

I was looking for a romantic weekend get away and when I saw the advertised "Romantic Spa suite" I though it sounded perfect even if it was a bit pricy. Upon arrival we discovered that the "Suite" was more like a small 1 bedroom apartment with outdated furniture. I had to search for 10min to find the light switchs. Then...

Hi there. Thanks for taking the time to express your comments regarding your stay with us. We are sorry that the Wedding held at our Venue that night disturbed your evening, even though you were certainly told about the probability. We are also sorry that the Suite was too expensive for you, and we hope that by posting this report...

Proprietors very accomodating, rooms have all you need, breakfast was delicious. Close to Mornington with lots to do in the area. We arrived late and hadn't booked, this didn't seem to be a problem and found the staff very friendly and helpful.

It was lovely having your Family stay with us again. The children are growing up so fast. (maybe, it's the breakfasts!). Thanks for your really lovely comments, and for taking the time to share your experiences - we look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Chris.

Booked this Motel because we were going to a festival in Mornington, so for location, this place is great! Chris at reception was wonderful and checked us in swiftly, but that's where the good points stop. The website photos are quite deceiving as there aren't any 'grounds' to stroll around and the bedrooms are quite small and the bathrooms are...

Thanks for taking the time to write - all of the guys in your group, here for the Blues festival, were certainly up for a good time. We have taken action on some of your comments - however, couldn't provide more than our 2 acres, and surrounding areas to stroll around. We look forward, hopefully, to seeing you all at...

For 165 dollars per night, you too can stay in ant town. This hotel, while lovely on the outside harboured many ants during our stay. Bathroom ants Microwave ants, Kettle ants, Bed ants.

Dear guest, thanks for your report - read & enjoyed by all of the staff. Water spilled from the fridge when you removed it from the cabinet - the door was swollen; damaged, and had to be removed. This was the same water that attracted the ants to come in from the extreme heat outside, that night. Despite doing very...

Stayed over xmas at this great motel. Such a nice place with great facilities. But the best thing about Norwood house was definitely the staff!!

We stayed in a renovated room at Norwood House. We chose this place as it had a microwave and toaster as well as the usual kettle. The room is described as compact and it is, but not excessively so. Everything was clean and worked well. The shower was great. There is a homemaker centre a short walk away and it...

Very disappointed in this motel. In very serious need of a renovation both externally and internally. The room was cramped. The carpets needed a clean. There was far too much furniture in the room. The bathroom was unbelievably small with a sink taking up most of the room. The bed was so uncomfortable. Had booked and paid for 3 nights...
