We went for a family function and the service and facilities are spot on. The staff were almost invisible and made everything happen without a hitch. I was disappointed only in two ways. The food was average for the function, but then it was for the breakfast as well. A little overcooked on everything. The other was the bed which... More

The location is superb with great views. Plenty of facilities and comfortable rooms. Rooms were a bit pricey though. That would be a great summary really, comfortable but pricey. The restaurant was ok with breakfast being very good. Plenty to see and do nearby.

We stayed two nights in a King Spa Suite. The room is tired with basic furniture and two single beds pushed together to make a 'King' but it was certainly clean and well presented, with all the amenities you'd expect. At $230 a night, it represents good value, but I wouldn't like to be paying much more than that. The... More

We lost our belongings there. I left some brand new clothes hanging in the closet. After we had checked out we realised we had left them behind so we called the resort the same day. The receptionists, Claire and Robert, did not help at all. Took two days for them to track down housekeeping and inquire about the items during... More

A very relaxing place to stay with helpful staff. The room was quite spacious as the spa suite, with everything on hand including full size bottles from the winery as part of the minibar. As seems to be typical in hotels, my main irritation is a noisy heating/cooling system. This wasn't too bad, and didn't really stop a good night... More

Just finished a memorable weekend in the Yarra Valley where we stayed at Balgownie Estate. Overall the experience was mixed, with a number of good and bad elements… Stayed in a Privilege Spa Suite which was lovely and big; had a lounge area, separate bedroom, big bathroom with a spa bath & complimentary in room robe. However, the TVs in... More

We've stayed here twice in the last few years. We booked a garden room for 2 nights at a good rate and had a pleasant view. The King bed was two singles connected together but they were comfortable as were the pillows. The bathroom is big with a nice walk in shower area. Robes and slippers are provided free. On... More

We booked this venue for a 2 day conference and I must say overall were very happy with the experience. The location is fantastic - fresh air, peace and quiet and under an hour from Melbourne. We were allocated ‘Spa Suites’ which have a circular spa bath with a window onto the living area. Great if you want to watch... More

This is not a great place to stay at all. The 'views' from the spa suite are of the car park, it is not clean, the spa has been painted and the paint is wearing off... All in all, I have no idea how it got the star rating it has. The bed was so uncomfortable being two single beds... More

Spacious room. Able to have a spa while looking at the gorgeous view of the Yarra Valley. Comfortable bed and pleasant surroundings. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. The only negative was the noise of other patrons returning to their room late from a function in the restaurant. But that is a very minor criticism.
