Everything went smoothly. We were arriving late but had no trouble getting the key. It's the depths of winter and they had the foresight to turn the heating on and set up the fire place ready for us. We felt very comfortable and had everything we needed. The environment was lovely. It's true, the cabins aren't very fancy. What they... More

Let's get the good done...the staff are warm and welcoming, the main Estate area is very nice and the chefs (well, the whole team) are obliging and flexible. In the rooms, the spa in the floor is nice and the setting is private...but that's where it ends. The cabins look like a student has been given a tiny budget to... More

we stayed two nights in a deluxe cabin, nestled away amonst the gum trees, with a view of the vines. The cabin had everything we needed and the sunken spa was really relaxing. I loved the bbq and being able to cook up a nice meal whilst drinking the estate wine. Our host was most kind and went out of... More

With some frantic months behind us we were looking for somewhere to head for a weekend away to relax and enjoy spending some time together. Otway Estate offered us just what we were needing. The people there were friendly and very welcoming. The cottage was cozy and comfortable. The food, wine and beer, particularly the evening meal we took in... More

We stayed at Otway Estate for one night at the end our Great Ocean Road road-trip. Usually you can only stay for mutiple nights but they were kind enough to accomodate us in between other bookings. We arrived mid-afternoon towards the end of lunch service, and once again were kind enough to accomodate us with a table. We had the... More

We had such a relaxing time, allowing my partner and I to spend some quality time reconnecting. We loved the spa more than anything and that was definitely the highlight of our trip. I agree with one of the posts below about the furniture and DVDs being quite outdated, even the property guide with property and tourist information has not... More

We stayed at Otway Estate for my sisters wedding. We found the winery absolutely lovely, the food top notch and the service friendly and caring. They could not have done anything more to attend to our needs. They happily and speedily helped us out when we had little problems like broken glass in the grass and emergency phone calls to... More

The moment we arrived the staff made us very welcome. We had lunch in the restaurant and the meals were of excellent quality and large servings. The waiting staff were attentive, explained the meals, wine and beer. At the bar, the tasting paddle was explained and well worth trying. Nothing was to much trouble. The cottage was bright, beautifully decorated... More
