I booked a one bedroom suite to celebrate birthday over the weekend. Looking at the good reviews, we were looking forward for this trip with some expectations. We checked in on Saturday at about 4.30 pm. Given a form to fill in and was handed the key cards. The receptionist roughly briefed us how to get to our room. Given... More

Everything about this resort was fantastic. The suite was one of the best we have stayed in with excellent facilities and views from our balcony. The pool was great with in pool jacuzzi and steam room. The wine tasting at the cellar door was first class with an excellent range of wines. Loved this place!

You can't go past Balgownie for spectacular views, sumptuous dining , beautiful wine and value for money. Celebrated a family birthday in a private room as there were close to 30 of us. Staff were wonderful, even delayed our meal because the guest of honour was running late. Not quite an hours drive out of Melbourne - and well worth... More

We stayed at Balgownie for my wife's birthday. The resort was fantastic with a lot to offer. (Pool, spa retreat, restaurant, winery, tennis courts, etc etc) We had the pool to ourselves most of the time, as well as the steam room. However the gym was extremely hot to the point that it wasn't worth having a gym there (and... More

The resort itself was great. Staff at reception were most helpful the room we stayed in was a 1 bedroom spa suite, was clean and had everything one could want. I have to say, the King Size bed was sensational, the pillows sublime. Often when you stay at a hotel, beds are too hard / soft, pillows just not to... More

I work in the valley for a private winery tour company. So I've visited on many occasions for winery tours, weddings transfers, but it was so much nicer to be able to stay there a few nights and relax. We enjoyed a fine meal at RAE'S a massage treatment session at natskin and also room service. Best experience and will... More

We eat often at the restaurant at Balgownie, however we have never stayed overnight. Was a last minute idea to go on the 25th and stay Australia Day. Called up and spoke to a lovely lady who was so helpful and organised a late check out for us as we were getting there quite late. We stayed there because of... More

This is a very nice place with great views. Beautiful spacious rooms overlooking the yarra ranges. Nice walking trail and if you are lucky, you will see some kangaroos. The only issue was that the phone in the room was not working and the two Asian receptionists at the check in counter were not helpful and did not seem to... More

We shared with a friend as a couple so had a 2 bedroom unit which is separated by a small entrance. The rooms were quite spacious with a balcony and a tree view. There was a strange smell to the room as we walked in so needed to open balcony door straight away. Then we discovered the non existent housekeeping... More
