Could not fault the Grand Mercure Forest Resort Apartments. Very private for a weekend getaway and only a short two minute stroll to the main facilities if you feel like dinner, a swim or go out and hit nine holes of golf. Would definately return for another visit.

We stayed in a two bedroom Villa and the quality was fantastic, this two level property had all the modern conveniences, comfortable beds, quality linen and really clean. We had access to the complex swimming pool and the on site restaurant offered excellent meals. Parking was at the front door of the Villa so it made for easy packing and... More

My family stayed here over Easter to go to Sovereign Hill and Bruce Springstein at Hanging Rock. It is such a beautiful area from Ballarat to Woodend. There are a few nice places to eat in Creswick itself and an excellent small grocery store which is ideal for the self contained apartment. The only thing I could fault the apartment... More

The apartment was very spacious, clean and newly repainted and fresh. Great location and great for family of 6 or group of friends to share. The use of the facilities at the Novotel a bonus - the restaurant and food was great - only negative comment is about the coffee need to change the blend as not very nice :)... More

Once a year my family and I go to Novotel Creswick, just to be out of the city, works, etc and just enjoy the outdoor. We normally stay in the executive room with spa, which I extremely recommend everybody. This year we stayed in the Villas which are just beautiful, spacious and stylish. It was a surprise for my son... More

Stayed in one of the 2 bedroom villas here and it was just what we were looking for to visit family close by. Well equipped although it did miss the finer things such as serving dishes, good china, cutlery and glasses. That said they were in the process of renovating the properties and I was assured this would all be... More

We enjoyed our stay at Creswick and the staff were very helpful when we wanted to leave earlier than planned. We enjoyed the buffet meals served in the restaurant over the holiday period. A shame the bar/cafe upstairs isn't open later and more consistently. The advertised times were also different in the info book and on the info sheet provided.... More
