Lovely suite, well appointed and quiet. Quality, range of food & service for breakfast in Rae's Restaurant was ordinary for the cost. Reception staff coughed and sniffed through our entire check out process which was unhygenic and unprofessional.

Little finches and other birds that we sadly don't seem to see in Melbourne anymore, were perched on the trees. The shower/spa bath had a... More

I guess my expectations were high when the Balgownie Estate resort was recommended by staff at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne. I'm sure it could be much better and maybe it was just an off day.... That said, I booked last minute and when we checked in I asked specifically if there was a room available with a balcony to... More

From the moment we got there we were intoxicated with the heavenly smells and views of this luscious estate. The kindness of the staff is paramount and incredibly pleasant. We were on our 3 year anniversary weekend away for Easter, we were treated like spoilt kings being fed the delicious hand picked grapes of the valley (this was the tantalising... More

My Daughter and I came in for a duo massage, We were treated by a gentelmen richard and young lass rhiannen there service was outstanding. I drifted into another place of pure relaxation. I was given a herbal tea at the end of the massage which was delicious and at perfect drinking temperature. I look most forward to coming back.

Dear Silvana K No better way to spend the Easter break. Of course trying our wines is a must and adding cheese is a fantastic idea. Unwinding with a massage is perfect, I will pass on your thanks to the team at Natskin. Looking forward to seeing you back at Balgownie. Nigel Maxey Executive Assistant Manager More
