I had stayed at Balgownie Estate before and was impressed so I booked it for 26 people for a dinner to celebrate my birthday. It was fantastic. The food and wine were superb, the service was outstanding and the rooms were all close by and beautifully appointed. I can highly recommend it. The grounds are lovely, the view fantastic and...

A large group of us stayed here for a 2 day conference. The rooms and the conference facilities were good and the grounds and view were lovely! Extra quiet too as we were there during weekdays made it especially relaxing during our breaks! The food however is another story. We had 3 meals in the restaurant and 4 catered to... More

Upon arrival the grounds and location are superb. this is in a tremendous part of the world but the whole experience for us was not the greatest. Although I thought the rooms may have been a little more isolated by themselves rather than in a block of apartments type arrangement, we entered our room on the lower floor and were... More

A perfect night away. We stayed in the privilege spa suite - the room and facilities were beautiful, very clean and modern. And a lovely balcony with a view over the yarra. The staff, especially Rebecca and Andrew, were always very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

Spent a lovely Tuesday evening at Balgownie Estate which is a short and easy drive from Melbourne. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. The checkin process was quick and simple. When we walked in to our room we were pleasantly surprised by the size of it. Our garden view room had a lovely sitting area and... More

We stayed at Balgownie for one night and were put in room 201 an executive suite. We were very impressed. It had two bedrooms with ensuites, a large living area and kitchen and a balcony with beautiful views across the vineyards to the Yarra Valley Choclaterie. It was very clean and modern and everything had been thought of. The restaurant... More

Balgownie is beautiful! We had booked in November but had to postpone and were not penalised in any way. When we finally made it we were greeted by Andrew the assistant manager and he was great! We were booked on a wine indulgence tour and it included our accomodation. Everything worked like clock work. Room with balcony was perfect! Definitely... More

Balgownie is a reasonable mid priced option for a stay in the Yarra without being anything special. The location makes it a good base for exploring the Yarra wine region. The rooms are clean and spacious but are fairly sterile and due a make over. I felt like little things let them down. We had staff wander in to our... More

Good morning Libby, Thank you for your review. I have re-emphasised to all staff when entering rooms to ensure they knock and announce before entering. The supply of coffee pods to all guest rooms has increased to ensure there is a constant supply and variety for our guests needs. Best regards Paul Koenig - Accommodation Manager More

My wife and I recently stayed here for our 18th wedding anniversary for one night. The team at the front desk were great and the room was well appointed and clean. After checking in we had a wander through the ground and the fantastic garden followed by wine tasting at the cellar door once again with staff only to happy... More
