The resort is within easy walking distance of Creswick. Our room was excellent with views across the golf course. It was clean and comfortable with efficient heating for cold winter days. The buffet breakfast was of international standard. All staff were helpful, attentive and efficient. Our weekend was one of the most relaxing weekends we have had away from home. Our meal at the Harvest Restaurant was enjoyable and our waiter was excellent. Food arrived in a timely fashion, hot and extremely enjoyable.

This is a most comfortable, amenable and well-appointed hotel in rural Victoria. It is excellently located out-of town, a short drive from Creswick ... and many neighbouring towns. A restful place with lovely views from rooms and restaurants. Excellent pool and gym.

My partner and I stayed at the resort on the Queen's Birthday long weekend. Right from the minute we walked in the door we felt so welcome; we were assisted with a trolley for our bags and a staff member took this to our room. We ate at Harvest restaurant for dinner and the service was 5 star! Breakfast was also wonderful. Our room was spectacular. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend staying here to anyone considering it, this is an amazing resort.

We stayed in a Premium Fairway suite. The room was immaculate, and the view over the golf course and surrounding country side was superb. All the staff were very friendly and attentive. The Breakfast buffet was good, a great advantage that breakfast is part of the package. The meals in both the Harvest restaurant and the Springs bar were very well presented The menu was adequate, my only minor gripe was that given that it is Winter there should have been a soup on the menu. The only other minor comment I would make is that the safe in our room was at floor level in a cupboard, so for an older person it is a bit difficult to get to But on the whole the weekend was great and I won't hesitate to stay at an RACV resort again

Dear Richard B, Thank you very much for your fantastic review, we are delighted you had such an enjoyable stay in our Premium Fairway Suite. We do appreciate the constructive feedback, we are about to undertake a project that involves adding an additional feature to the wardrobe which will help raise the safe. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind regards Martin

We had a one night stay in a King Resort Room with lovely golf fairway views. King bed was very comfortable but I found the pillows to hard and high for my liking. Having a pillow menu like some other resorts would be a added bonus. Room had a balcony with two seats and a table overlooking the gof course and forest. Room had reverse cycle air conditioner as well as a separate wall heater. The room and bathroom was immaculately clean. The bathroom had a combination bath and shower within due to limited space. This was poorly designed and the shower screen only went halfway resulting in a lot a water on the bathroom floor. Overall an excellent stay and all staff encountered were very friendly and professional.

Dear tommomelbourne, Thank you very much for your review, we are delighted you had such an enjoyable stay with us. We are fortunate to have amazing scenery surrounding the Resort, we are glad you enjoyed the view. We do appreciate the feedback regarding the bathroom, this is not a feature for all our showers so when you do stay again, please feel free to request a shower only room. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kind regards Martin
