Started our experience on an off note when told they wouldn't be able to fit in our party of five as they were booked out. It was 12pm and the restaurant was empty. This was fine as we expected that they would have bus trips stopping in for lunch. Anywho, they did find us a table in the end. But... More

Do yourself a favour and stay in a 'privileged room'. The room was lovely and clean and the bed was so comfortable that we had to wake up the baby (who was sleeping in there at the time) to go to breakfast! Buffet breakfast had a great selection of hot and cold food. The grounds are really nice to walk... More

Stayed here for two nts for wedding. Easy drive from Melbourne airport. We had spa room with separate bedroom and very functional kitchen. Bed was king size and very comfortable. Good quality toiletries, although it would have been nice to have bubble bath for spa. Nice wines to sample at wine tasting. Good locality for visiting other vineyards eg Chandon.... More

We had a bit of luck finding this place post a trip to the Penguin Parade. We have not visited any other vineyards in Australia so our only benchmark is South of France and Spain. The Spa room was excellent and good value the views are wonderful. The cellar door as it is called was very impressive and the wines... More

Just returned from an off-site business meeting at Balgownie - we had everything we needed: very comfortable accommodation, meeting rooms, Rae's restaurant, spa, pool, gym, tennis court, lovely grounds and of course great wines. I would like to go back and spend a weekend - just to relax, take in the views, have a spa, visit some of the nearby... More

Great location, large and comfortable rooms, facilities were really good with tennis and walking track and they are very eco friendly and the staff were super nice. The pool was good, and it has a great spa area with heaps of jets of which the majority of them were not operational unfortunately, hopefully they'll fix their jets in the pool... More

The resort is very attractive, lovely grounds, expansive views of vineyard. It has a walking trail, spa area, gym. We had a standard room, the cheap seats. The room was smallish but very tastefully decorated with some views through a narrow window. The QS was a good quality and very comfortable. Bathroom on the other hand was quite large and... More

Rooms were modern, comfortable and quiet. There were quite a few other guests but we rarely knew they were there. The dinning facility is quite exquisite and the meals were fantastic. A great escape an hour from Melbourne set in a picturesque winery. Would love to stay again.

We stayed here after a wonderful art tour of the Yarra Valley. The place is very beautiful, although there are twee cement sculptures of native creatures ruining several views and outlooks. There are several attempts at grandeur including a big chess set, although it fails as an out door room due to it's location and lack of furniture. The roses... More
