“Dinner, bed and breakfast - a nice weekend away.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

We stayed at Tuileries for two nights on the dinner, bed and breakfast package. We enjoyed our relaxing, stress free stay.

The rooms are all an identical layout, but each is furnished and decorated differently. They are spacious and comfortable, as are the bathrooms. Our room and furnishings were in a reasonable to good state of repair/condition. The king sized bed was very comfortable, with plenty of good quality pillows supplied. The towels were also of good quality. Appropriate glasses etc. were provided, and the small fridge had plenty of room for the wine we brought with us and acquired along the way (once we emptied out the mini-bar contents!).

The deck is lovely and the outdoor furniture was comfortable. It was obvious, however, that the outdoor table hadn't been wiped for some time, let alone the chairs. The first six or eight units are overlooking a relatively nice (though probably not operational) vineyard. The remaining units were obviously built later, and though a vineyard has been planted in front of these too (for aesthetic purposes), it has not been at all maintained and was entirely sad looking. Such a pity, as this concept is quite central to Tuileries' sales pitch, and a decent looking vineyard would be relatively easy to achieve. Unfortunately, our room had this relatively sad outlook. If I had my time again, I'd choose one of units 14, 15 or 16. They're at the very end of the row, had more modern decor than the others, and looked across both vineyards on an angle, thus improving the view somewhat.

The food in the restaurant for dinner was very nice. We eat out in Melbourne very regularly, and the food here was certainly comparable. The wine buffet involves five whites and five reds, from which you can taste and pour on a self-serve basis. The charge is $8 per glass (an honor system), with a 'bottomless glass' for $22.50. To be honest, we only found one white we liked, and went straight for the GSM in the reds (which was very nice). But we nonetheless got our money's worth!! The staff in the restaurant (and the attached wine bar, where we enjoyed an after-dinner cocktail one night) were all very friendly and helpful, and appeared genuinely interested in making sure our experience was a good one. It was also really lovely to be able to wonder back to our room after a lovely dinner and more than a couple of drinks... ;-)

Breakfast was held in the on site cafe. The first morning we were told we couldn't have espresso coffee because the waitress 'didn't have the machine on.' This was very disappointing, as the percolated coffee on offer was undrinkable. The second morning, the staff were offering real coffee, though they were so busy we cancelled our coffee order rather than wait our turn in the queue. Real coffee is very important to some of us...this would be one 'point for improvement' I would suggest to Tuileries. The breakfast menu was the usual fare, and of reasonable quality.

Overall, we had a relaxing, enjoyable weekend at Tuileries. The DBB package does represent good value, and we would go again, either alone or with friends.

Room Tip: 14, 15 and 16 are at the end of the row of rooms, have more modern decor and a nicer outlook than so...

We just got back from our !st wedding anniverary. We stayed at Tuileries for 3 nights and it was better than expected. Our rooms were clean, neat & tidy. Bed was so comfortable. Spa was relaxing after a hard day going around the wineries, sampling lol.... Tony's advice on wineries, places to eat, places to go was just spot on advice. Lots of places to eat within this boutique resort, from brekkie inside or outside, lunch at their cafe, and dinner inside for formal dining or cafe for casual dining. Service was impeccible. The grounds area was beautifully maintained, picturesque overlooking a vinyard right in front of our spa unit. Great pricing. Thumbs up for me and definately go again, thank you Tony & staff xoxo

Room Tip: Rooms with the spa's are amazing to sit on the wooden deck overlooking the vinyard. Standard ice...

Just back from our second stay at gorgeous Tuileries. As other guests have noted the Dinner, Bed and Breaksfast package is wonderful value given the quality of the rooms and the food. Love the wine buffet idea. Allows you try a great selection of what the local area has to offer. Tony was a lovely host both on arrival and departure and during all email correspondence. The vineyard rooms are highly recommended with wonderful views from the decking and gorgeous garden surrounds. All the staff were very friendly and courteous. Will definitetly be back.

Room Tip: Recommend the vineyard rooms

Delighted to have another opportunity to visit Tuileries and to stay for 2 nights. The irises are blooming and the whole place looks great.

We had a wonderful dinner and I chose the pork dish (pictured) which was absolutely delicious (I confess I had to have the chicken wontons as usual, and they were great of course).

I love it when you ask for 'crispy bacon' with breakfast and you actually get crispy bacon!

Thanks to Tony Lamb and staff for another special stay. Can't wait till next time!

We have been to Tuileries before and thought it was fantastic. Our previous visit included the dinner, bed & b'fast (DBB) deal. The food was great and we looked forward to a repeat experience. The room was very good (a couple of minor maintenance items but nothing significant) and our welcome very friendly. Thankyou Tony. Regrettably the restaurant did not live up to previously established standards. Dinner on the first evening was disappointing with bland dishes and a main that just simply was deficient. The response of the restaurant staff was very positive to try to rectify a difficult situation. The second evening was much better and I wonder if "it's them again" was the factor. In any event the meal was much better but still, in our opinion, not up to previous standards. If you read this critique you are probably wondering at the 4 rating. It is a great place to stay. The restaurant is a good restaurant and the DBB package is value for money. Our problem was the previous standard set. It did not match. The other disappointment was the lack of WiFi access. Whilst allegedly outside the control of the venue it is an important factor in this day and age. Check that Telstra is delivering before you book!

This boutique motel was very comfortable. The two rooms were spacious (one with a King bed and the other with 2 singles for our daughters). The staff were very welcoming and attentive. They have a range of DVDs available for free hire which kept our girls entertained after a day of visiting wineries. The breakfasts in the restaurant (included in the price) are nothing short of exceptional. We were gobsmacked at how fantastic the meals were: French toast with maple syrup and bacon kept my 5 year old happy . I had the sourdough bread with perfectly poached eggs, spinach and mushrooms. The bathroom is spacious and clean and the rooms were serviced during our stay. I'd happily come back to this motel.

Room Tip: The family groups are great however the a/c can be noisy

This place is really appealing. Spacious comfortable rooms in a semi-rural location - the inroom spa looked great but i didn't have time to use it. I was with a large group and we had a three course meal in the restaurant. My choices were all delicious although sometimes chefs can be a a bit too creative - putting olive tapernade beside delicate Murray Cod was a bridge too far but I could avoid it so no harm done. Good choice of wines. I don't know the costs as I was a guest of the meeting organiser. Close to the rutherglen wineries.

Room Tip: All rooms would be fine
