My wife and I had a great time at the winery. The accommodation was first class, with the room being very clean and well appointed. We ate in the restaurant both nights. We were only going to eat there once, but it was so good we went back.

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary. Privilege Suite was great. Great views, plenty of space. Estate grounds are nice, and is a lovely walk around. Staff were all friendly, cellar door tasting was good. Restaurant food was very good. There was a wedding on, but you would have never of known. No noise from our room. Highly recommend.

We had an overnight stay in a privilege spa suite on a Sunday night. We arrived mid afternoon and after checking out our spacious well appointed room headed to the cellar door for a complimentary wine tasting. Balgownie estate certainly have some beautiful wines and we were very well hosted by the friendly man behind the counter. Dinner in Raes... More

Having previously enjoyed an overnight stay in late October at the Balgownie Estate in Maiden Gully, near Bendigo, we recently travelled to the Yarra Valley, a place we had not been to for nearly ten years. With no pre-arranged accommodation we decided to check out the Balgownie Estate at Yarra Glen. From the stunning gardens and manicured lawns to the... More

This is our 4th visit to Balgownie Estate and we really love this place. The rooms overlook the vines and are always beautifully maintained. The only downfall this time was our lunch at Raes Restaurant. On our last visit about a year ago we would have rated our meal at Raes as one of the best we'd ever eaten -... More

Balgownie is a beautiful estate, the views are stunning. Our Prestige room was nice enough, however the black feet marks on the bottom of the shower did not entice me to even think about sitting in the bath for a spa. This is our third visit to Balgownie and we have previously loved our stays. Rae's restaurant is one of... More
