Very quiet, peaceful, comfortable accommodation. Loved the big bathroom, shower over the spa bath didn't worry us. We had amazing scones, jam and cream and I'm not even a sweet tooth.
A short trip to the Marong Hotel where we had some amazing food. In fact we ate too much and probably shouldn't have had the scones for afternoon tea!
We would have preferred a better quality bread for our toast, perhaps a local sourdough and I'm not sure why we got 3 slices for 2 people. Also, would have loved the jam we had with our scones not the sachet variety. Overall, a great place to stay for stressed people from the burbs.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set next to the vineyards of Balgownie Estate Winery at Maiden Gully just outside the famous and historical gold mining town of Bendigo in Central Victoria. Two beautifully restored mining cottages with all the modern conveniences close to our Cellar Door and Cafe, provide a peaceful and relaxing venue that overlook the vines. On occasions you can say hello to our friendly kangaroos and various forms of wildlife whilst relaxing with a glass of our famous white or red wines from the 40 year old vineyard. ... more less
