We were only in Bendigo for one night and found this place online, it is about 10km out of town - very easy driving and easy to navigate to. The cottage was well appointed, with a huge bathroom with spa bath. Breakfast is included - just the basics, but perfect for one night. It was nice and dark at night... More

Great wine! a real shame my husband and I went there for a tasting and to purchase wine today but a large group arrived and we were put on the back burner ruining our experience. We quickly purchased and left feeling very disappointed. Won't be hurrying back :(

Accommodation is excellent and really comfortable. The people are very accommodating and hospitable when booking and when leaving. Its a lovely quiet place for a night or a few nights...recommended. You can have lunch..or cheese plate and wine at the winery if you like. The wine bottles in the room are very well priced.

Lovely ambiance and very friendly, caring people. The one bedroom (suite 2) was very comfortable and spacious. The wines gorgeous and our evening meal, whilst the cafe is not open in the evening, meals can be ordered and taken to your suite and be heated on the electric BBQ if required, was delicious. A great stay. Thank you

We travelled to Bendigo after spending some time in Echuca. The location of Balgownie Estate was great as was the room. We loved it! I had been there before about 15 years ago and I was just as happy this time around as I was the first - an excellent place to relax and unwind. The staff are very friendly... More

As a couple this was just the getaway we were looking for .. Great place , great location... Lovely staff.. We will be back... If there was a down side and this was minor... The frost fans were on in the vineyard which created noise during the night...

Quite nice and as described. Rooms are quite small but it says size on website . TV volume wouldn't adjust and no reception for free to air TV stations... Maybe just my room. Restaurant nice and breakfast nice. Expensive but it is the Yarra valley. Suitable for business conferences and wedding stays.
