The room we stayed in was nice but it didn't have an electric blanket which is just a must have especially in Winter. Apart from that, the room as immaculate - one of the cleanest we've ever stayed in. I wanted to go to the gym at 5pm on Sunday evening but unfortunately it was locked. We had dinner in... More

After reading mixed reviews I decided to bite the bullet and stay at goldfields resort. Being an RACV member it was a fairly good price with breakfast. Firstly, the building and grounds were rather nice with big lobby and friendly staff. Our room was small but enough for what we needed. I requested a separate bath and shower which I... More

Stayed for a work program that ran over two days. The room was very comfortable with a king bed but with still plenty of room to move around. Very friendly and helpful staff always willing to assist. Food quality was very good for all meals. Would certainly go and stay there again without any hesitation.

Easy drive from Melbourne, the RACV resort is a great place to visit, modern rooms, games room for the kids to play next to the lounge bar, while the parents can enjoy a drink. Nice warm swimming pool, although a little small given the size of the complex. The surrounds are also very pleasant. The only downside is the breakfasts... More

Took the family to this place. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The pool was nice and warm, and the spa awesome. Dinner was good value for money but breakfast a bit of a miss. We had a great time, very peaceful location. We will definitely be back. Thanks

We spent a nice weekend here in May, when the weather was cold! Rooms have all the necessary mod cons, and were clean and serviceable. The resort however lacks an area to sit near the fire in comfort. The lovely open fire is in the cold, tiled lobby with only 2 chairs. For a much improved winter experience, the resort... More
