The approach to this hotel is lovely, very picturesque on top of a hill and entrance design is lovely. On the glass doors 4 star rating. After staying I wonder what the requirement is for 4 stars. Check in was quick but staff wasn’t friendly and informative. But as always maid service was lovely, they greet you with a smile.... More

Spent a wonderful relaxing evening at the Novotel Creswick. Check in and check out was painless, the room was clean, comfortable and roomy, the balcony lovely to relax on. Enjoyed time in the bar, just loved that every available corner in the resort had a couple of comfy chairs and a table to enjoy a quiet drink. Just LOVED the... More

We stayed for one night during Easter at the Fairway Suite, and we were glad we booked for a night only. The rooms are absolutely worn out, not well looked after. We thought we would be staying in a nice room, so we were quite disappointed. The room was dirty, black marks all over the walls, stained curtains, dirty socks... More

Indulge me, while I write a story about our stay – I promise to make it a reasonable read. Our stay was for 2 nights (Sat & Sun) in a 1 bedroom suite room. We secured a very reasonable rate (being winter) with breakfast and were looking forward to the stay. I received a call 24hrs prior asking if there... More

Our weekend began with an immediate, no questions asked upgrade as soon as our shower stopped working properly upon checking in and the water could not be turned off. Jarrod, the supervisor on duty at the time, saw to an immediate transfer to a superior room and organised complimentary coffees in the evening. Jarrod is supremely professional and an asset... More

A very enjoyable stay. Only problem was the bathroom. Quite dated and had to step into a high bath to have a shower. Not easy when your knees are crook. The meals and staff were great. The heated pool a real win with the kids. Golf course a real challenge .

Stayed here on weekend with a group of friends. Would have been a good trip if we didn't go to the restaurant. It completely ruined our stay. Shocking customer service. Twice as bad as anywhere I've ever been. No apologies for a 2 hour wait. Terrible. 4 other tables walked out and if there was any other options we would... More
