Had this place suggested to us. Had no idea where it was or what it was like. Wow! Impressed! Huge resort, with all facilities including a golf course. Made an auto club deal booking direct thru the website, unbelievable price of $169 per night, and had a large 2 room apartment with super King bed, kitchenette lounge room, balcony with... More

We had a spacious, clean room with peaceful green view out across the golf course (including a huge window from the bathroom out, with a blind if privacy was required!). The restaurant provided a wide selection of breakfast foods and good high chairs. There is a useful kids room that our toddler enjoyed. Exceptionally (genuinely) friendly staff.

As one who enjoys this region and is familiar with Creswick, I recently chose Goldfields to stay for a couple of days by myself. I chose to treat myself to the Fairway premium suite which was just lovely with views over the golf course. Little touches such as the Loccitane toiletries were appreciated. A couple of things I feel would... More

Was only here for a short stay. When we arrived we couldn't go to our rooms yet as we were too early but we left our bags and they delivered them to the room. Check in and check out very easy. Staff was friendly and efficient. Room was clean enough. Big in size. Housekeeping could have done a more thorough... More

We couldn't have been happier with our choice of places to go for a weekend away. The extended family all had lovely rooms overlooking the golf course and the food at the restaurant was first class. The golf was a bit wet and cold , but still good fun while the ladies explored the town and surrounding area. The staff... More

We stayed here for one night recently as my husband had booked us a spa treatment in Hepburn Springs the next day, and I thought the accommodation there was too expensive.
