Whilst the actual Restaurant might be nice, I was extremely disappointed in the hotel room.
I booked two nights at the Hotel after cancelling a two-night stay at other accom. because I thought the Healesville Hotel brand was strong, and would offer some country-style charm.
The room was extremely small, draughty, had 4 air-vents to the outside which meant cold nights and dust as we slept and is just too many vents for such a tiny space.
After 3 days there, both my partner and I left with colds and didn't feel like we had relaxed.
I'd been really looking forward to staying at the Hotel having never stayed in Healesville, having heard great reviews and as I said, even cancelled a previous booking elsewhere to stay at the Hotel for our mini-escape.
Whilst I was surprised by the shared bathrooms, it didn't bother me and they were kept clean. However, they were also cold and I thought they could have made the bathrooms more charming as well.
The room itself was extremely tiny, painted orange on all 4 walls which didn't make it feel calming or modern, but rather very dark.
Noise doesn't bother us as we live in the city but there was loud furniture moving downstairs at midnight and then as early as 6am.
Staff were friendly but needed more staff on the night we checked in.
I think for the money that was paid, you can find somewhere more comfortable to stay.
