Located right opposite Rosebud beach, this very affordable and friendly Mornington Peninsula motel is just a few minutes’ walk from shops and restaurants, and an easy drive to the region’s top attractions. Our 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units are airy and spacious – and you’ll love the luxury of our super-comfortable king size beds.
Start the day with a delicious hot breakfast delivered to your room, then discover the nearby hot springs, golf courses, safe swimming beaches, water sports, walks, wineries and villages such as Sorrento and Portsea. Towards the end of the day, come back to Rosebud pier for the fabulous sunset, then we can recommend a local restaurant or pub for dinner.
Your hosts, Frank and Josie Giorgianni, have spent more than 20 years in hospitality and over a decade on the Mornington Peninsula. We’re a family operated business which welcomes families, and our local knowledge will help you really make the most of your visit.
And we know the little things that matter to you – because they matter to us too. Our Mornington Peninsula motel and apartments have won awards for quality and cleanliness, and every bed has crisp white triple sheeting that’s sparkling fresh and spotlessly clean. You’ll find all those essential comforts such as electric blankets, iron and ironing board, heating, air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities, bar fridge (full kitchens in our apartments), free wifi for the whole of your stay, and a little gift such as chocolates or hand cream just to say ‘thanks for staying with us’.
Our location is so central too: Rosebud is right in the heart of all the experiences of the southern Mornington Peninsula, but less than an hour’s drive from Melbourne. The Great Ocean Road is only an hour away by vehicular ferry from Sorrento, and Phillip Island’s penguin parade is less than two hours’ drive.
