We originally booked to stay in one of the Poolside units but when we arrived we were offered an upgrade to one of the themed cottages at a discount. We were glad we did. It was the African themed cottage. It's very private, has a great view with a veranda and a spa bath. I could've stayed inside the whole... More

We stayed in the Victoria Cottage and the location was incredible for a private, romantic getaway. It came with a free breakfast hamper each morning which had more than enough food for a couple. Kitchen facilities were great. Spa was incredible, I loved that we could look out at the incredible view and enjoy nature. Balcony was wonderful for snacking... More

A few months ago, we had friends visiting from Singapore and decided to take them to Mornington Peninsula. We chose Hilltonia but we couldn't get one cottage for each couple so me and my partner stayed in one of the rooms next to the pool. The room itself was ok, clean but a bit old. The problem was that we... More
