My husband and I stayed here recently on a Friday night as part of a family group who were attending a wedding at a nearby venue. The rooms were very clean and had all the basic necesseties you would need for an overnight stay, nothing fancy but comfortable. There was a lovely view from the rear balcony of the lake behind, which was lovely to wake up to. We also took advantage of the minibus service they can provide, which for a fee ($75 each way for the whole bus), took us to the wedding and back, which was great and saved us having to try and get taxis in the Dandenongs which can be a nightmare!
The only downside to our stay was the lack of customer service we found when dealing with staff at the resort. When checking in at reception, we were very unethusiatically greeted and our friendliness wasn't really recipricated at all. We had lunch in the resort bistro and again found that the counter staff really couldn't be bothered and were fairly unfriendly. In saying this though both the bus drivers we had to and from the wedding were friendly, so not everyone on staff was a sourpuss.
Overall, a clean, comfortable and value for money spot to spend a night. If attending a wedding in the area again, I'd certainly stay here.
