We had a fantastic time at the Mountain Top Retreat, The location was beautiful, the rooms comfortable and having opted for the relaxation package we enjoyed a private yoga session and some great massages. Christine and Anton were thoughtful hosts and we wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Lovely weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our two nights' at Mountain Top. The hosts were super friendly and accommodating and were easily contactable for any questions. We really enjoyed using Mountain Top as a base for our time in the Dandenongs and are looking forward to coming back again soon. The massage was also lovely if you get a chance to fit one in.
