We've stayed at this hotel twice, this time on a hot January long weekend, and previously in the shoulder season. The resort is almost two different places! This time, it was kid central--lots of families and extended families. In the cooler season, there are more couples, young and old, visiting the surrounding vineyards or having a round of golf.

Second time visit. Initially had issue locating my booking, done by an agency. But the friendly receptionist was able to find it under my IHG membership account. Overall, It was quick, just the the EFTPOS machine set up at the concierge desk make it feel like at Coles counter. We checked in the ground floor room at the Pokolbin wing.... More

This has a very solid combination of amenity and service. The grounds are lovely, the 2-bed villa was very spacious and comfortable. The facilities are great, especially the pool and the Lovedale brasserie. In particular, the staff deserve a mention. Always friendly and courteous, we felt welcome at all times. Clearly a sign of good people-management. It makes such a... More

Only stayed for one night but the estate was impressive. We stayed in a three bedroom villa on the North side. Easy walk to the large pool. Villa was clean and well presented. Kitchenette suitable for cooking breakfast. Two queen beds and one King bedroom was pleasant accommodation with a TV in each room. Lawns were well manicured and the... More

My wife and myself have been staying at this hotel for the lay 5 years. I can't recall one bad experience besides one or two of the young staff having a little attitude . This place has it all. Great golf course, restaurant, tennis courts and pool. The 3 bedroom villas are huge and easy to share with 3 couples.... More

Upon entering our room we realised the room had not been cleaned which we weren't happy to stay in. After explaining to reception they promptly upgraded us to a villa which was ideal with having children and sent us a complimentary bottle of wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast, a clever idea to have help yourself service as well as... More

Recently spent a couple of nights at the Crowne in a King Deluxe room. The room was especially clean and tidy with plenty of room to move around. The best nights sleep I've had in a hotel in a long time, very quiet. The Lovedale restaurant serves beautifully fresh and delicious brasserie food. Staff were very helpful and knowledgable. The...

We stayed here as three couples to celebrate my husbands birthday. The villa was nicely appointed, however the self contained kitchen was missing a few basic utensils that made cooking a simple breakfast difficult. The suite upstairs was great with ensuite and a huge comfy bed although I missed having a full length mirror. The other two bedrooms were generous,... More

We stayed as a family of 3 in a spacious 2 bedroom villa on the top floor and it was just brilliant. The only small issue was our aircon which didn't work in the main room to start (granted it was a very hot weekend) but it was fixed promptly and with no fuss. The service is great, the hotel...
