This is our return visit to Balgownie Estate. We managed to book the Queen bed room on last minute booking at $350.00 on website. 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

A 24hr getaway. What a nice way to relax. 15 minutes from our busy business life, nice country setting, very pleasant welcome, fridge stocked with food, a decent deep spa for two. Continental breakfast with Plunger coffee. What better way to spend a nice Winter day.

Great accommodation, location, and staff. Only criticism would be that the breakfast was a bit of a let down for a place of this high standard. A few slices of sliced bread in glad wrap in the fridge is a bit poor. Otherwise a great place, would stay again and have breakfast in town.

Lovely service and clean rooms. The lounge didn't have a couch which was odd but there's a tv in the bedroom. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom is very nice, 2 sinks and a spa. There was no oven/cooktop, but a microwave to heat up food. The breakfast wasn't what we expected which a was a little disappointing, only... More

We enjoyed the brief stay at the estate. The atmosphere was lovely and very quiet. The highlight was obviously the produces from the winery and estate. It would have been better if the cabin had a cooker, rather than the electric BBQ.

Our first impressions of this property were very good. The landscape was gorgeous, set atop a hill with a nice outlook. The restaurant looked lovely to the right side of the rooms. CHECK-IN process was nice, we were greeted with a smile and a hello. $100AUD was held onto our credit card in case of any breakages or faults left... More

What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon than relaxing with great food and good wine. I really wanted to have lunch at a winery and i am so glad we picked this place. The service was excellent (was a little slow when trying to pay), and food was amazing. We had a trio of dips for entree and it... More
