We stayed just overnight, but managed to fit in a short sit in the sunshine on our balcony, the complimentary cellar door wine tasting, and a fabulous dinner. The one bedroom spa suite has loads of space and a separate living room and bedroom. Main complaint..I wish we'd had more time to enjoy it all.

My husband and I recently stayed here for 2 nights for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We loved it! The room was spacious and clean. We had great views across the valley. We enjoyed dinners at Rae's. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Loved staying here at Balgownie for the night. The staff were all incredibly nice and welcoming, especially the girls in the cellar door and Jade in the restaurant. We had a 1 bedroom spa room, which was a fantastic size with great views. The restaurant for dinner was good, prices were very comparable to other restaurants in the area. My... More

After booking a One Bedroom Spa Suite at a 4.5 star winery, my wife and I were left massively disappointed. The sofabed provided was the worst I've ever come across. The springs stuck into your back and it made it impossible for our son to sleep. After a difficult night, with minimal sleep, knowing that I had to work that... More

We were impressed and enjoyed our 2 night break here, while we occupied our days at some of the Yarra Valley wineries. There's a range of rooms, and we opted for a “garden terrace” room (entry from the terrace) which was spacious (especially the bathroom) and we couldn't fault its presentation. The outlook of these room is into the garden... More

Balgownie is perfectly located towards the north end of the valley with view back towards Yarra Glen. Restaurant is big and they are very popular so it gets a bit noisy. Food in the restaurant is excellent and the service only dropped the ball once. Great rooms with comfy beds, a nice balconies to enjoy the outlook.

Great location rooms were lovely and clean but the biggest disappointment was reception staff very unwelcoming unhelpful rude and very cold not a nice way to be greeted. Our room was not ready had to wait 30 mins after check in time there was no apology or explanation as to why we were kept waiting.

My husband and I enjoyed our Yarra Valley overnight getaway. The resort had a great view, comfy suite, good facilities and a bathroom with an awesome view! I used to work for a luxury hotel chain and I couldn't help notice a things like a dusty bedside lampshade and dusty pendant lights over reception to name a couple. I'm sorry... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here as we had friends getting married in the Yarra Valley. Although the place was beautiful I found our room quite small. We booked into their restaurant for dinner one night and was impressed with the food and atmosphere. There is a great fireplace which is a feature in their restaurant. Also they have a... More

Had a very enjoyable night here in a 2 bedroom spa suite. This is actually a 1 bedroom suite with interconnecting second queen room so you get 2 bathrooms/toilets and is perfect for a pair of singles or a pair of couples.
