What a treat to have a private courtesy car that catered for what we wanted to do. Mark our driver was such a lovely and knowledgeable guy who even made a detour so we could buy things we forgot to pack. After a day of wine and chocolate tasting we spent the evening in the new bar enjoying some tasty... More

Mark the courtesy driver was absolutely spot on, was expecting to pay big $$$ and much better than joining one of the large bus style tours, very helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant and vineyard were great.

Booked the Resort over a spur of the moment late breakfast in Healesville. Made the short road trip to Balgownie Resort and immediately struck by the courteous attention at reception and upgrade without asking and room available early. Further surprised by the number of people staying there. Expectation was the a Sunday night would be near deserted. Not so. Enjoyed... More

Spent two days here and absolutely loved it. Got a deal on last minute.com.au which is cheaper than booking thru the Estate and was well worth it, had a spa suite with a King Bed and a gorgeous view. Buffet breakfast was diverse and tasty. Reception staff were good, not always manned but a number provided to get them. Recommend.

We have been to the restaurant Balgownie estate before, and enjoyed the occasion. This time however, we were most surprised to find a large, and loud, tour group in the dining area. The menu had been simplified to somewhat expensive bistro pub food, think fish and chips, beef burger, caesar salad.... and unfortunately, the service matched. We were never served... More

I stayed for a corporate event and was really surprised by the suites. Large and spacious yet welcoming. Interesting shower and spa bath. The grounds were beautiful. The service brilliant and the meal in the restaurant was exceptional given we were a reasonable size group.

Arrived to be seated at a lovely table by the window with perfect view all very promising. Waited a long time for anyone to take drink or food order, oil on table but no bread forthcoming. Waitress recommended pork belly very ordinary with large slab of unrendered fat and very tough. Mains good beautiful steak and tasty pasta but trying... More

First time i visited this stunning property i fell in love instantly and was very much looking forward to returning...unfortunately i did. We were given a room where the bed was made up of two singles! Sleeping was near impossible as the damn thing was split down the middle! These things, however unfortunate, can happen but what disappointed me the... More
