Staff were very friendly and helpful Breakfast was good with a good selection There’s no separate bar and the selection of beers available in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a spa suite in September 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well equipped - free Wi-Fi was a welcome feature! Access to the indoor pool, spa and gym and the on-site restaurant and cellar door are more plusses for this place. From checking in, to room cleaning... More

My partner and I stayed here last week, and after reading the mixed bag of reviews we were a little apprehensive. However, as soon as we drove into Balgownie we felt immediately welcomed and relaxed. Though we arrived before check in, the front desk staff were excellent and kindly told us that we could leave our bags and explore the... More

Stayed in a one bedroom suite. Hotel was nice, natskin is good. Got room service for dinner which wasn't expensive and was nice. The only thing I could fault was the lack off info in the room on if they delivered breakfast. Would recomend though.

Spent two nights here with friends who had been before. Very close to Yarra Glen, wineries and only 20 minutes drive to Healesville Sanctuary. 5 min drive to local cafes, restaurants and hotels. Well established resort with well kept grounds and great views of the surrounding countryside from room balconies. Comfortable well appointed rooms that include a microwave and a... More

The last time my partner and I visited Balgownie earlier this year there were a few things we thought were not up to scratch. We visited again last weekend and had a totally different experience. The service from the moment we checked in until we left was great. The room was more modern than our previous one and had such... More

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
