Went there for a family catch up with my husband, son and his partner. We had a pleasant wine and chocolate tasting followed by a tasting plate and cheese platter. It was a great way to spend a chilly Sunday afternoon. I would recommend going there again.

A quick getaway to this idyllic property just outside Bendigo. Staff were welcoming and attentive, the studio apartment was just right. A beautiful outlook and fabulous wines, what more could you want!

Just a quick pop in for wine tasting turned into one of the most amazing lunches ever had. My husband and i were welcomed and our children accomodated for beautifully. Spent a small fortune on wine but worth it!! If you like food and wine...highly recommended. Thank u :)

From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. Kathryn's hospitality and friendliness made our weekend even more special. The cottage is cosy and peaceful and the food; wine and outlook from the cafe make Balgownie Bendigo a very pleasant place to spent a weekend to relax and reconnect.

Lovely place to stay. Walk to the cellar door, have a meal, sit in the spa or walk around the picturesque surrounding's. Staff and directors some of the most wonderful people we've met. 5 star!!! Thanks for helping us celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We'll be back for the rose 😄

Husband and I had a child free night so decided to book the one bedroom spa suite at Balgownie Estate Yarra Glen...well what a waste of $400 that was. I don't even know where to start... The description of the 'room' along with the photos of the 'room' did not look/sound like the room in the slightest. We respect that... More

To our dismay, the room is noway close to the standard of the spa suite we stayed in Balgownie Estate. We requested for an upgrade immediately but unfortunately the other rooms are booked out. There is... More

Accommodation was lovely and quaint. There are only 2 accommodation units on the property, and as such, there is no restaurant. Only a cafe. "Breakfast Included" related to 2 slices of bread, jam, coffee and an individual serve of box cereal. Checkout was at 10 and we were told the cafe would be open by then, but we had to... More
