From the moment of checking in, to the time I checked out, everyone at Balgownie worked to make it a wonderful time away. It was a lovely room, with wonderful views of the sunsets both nights. Overall, a wonderful place to stay with great staff with a fabulous sense of humour.

Room Tip: The privilege spa suite was delightfully luxurious. The spa overlooking the trees and the sunset was a gorgeous addition.

This property is in a central location with lovely gardens. We stayed in a generously sized room with comfy bed. Room was very clean and warm. Lovely views overlooking the valley. As part of our package we also enjoyed a delicious meal at Rae's and there was plenty of variety to choose from for breakfast. Would come back again.

This is a lovely place to stay when visiting the beautiful Yarra Valley. Centrally located to the beautiful Alowyn Garden, Yarra Valley chocolate and wineries. Gorgeous views over the vineyards and the mountains in the distance. Breakfast was included I. The room rate which was lower belt and had a good variety. Our room was a good size and lovely and clean. Highly recommend somewhere to stay when visiting Yarra Valley. Good for couples friends having a weekend away. Only down side not many place to walk.

Enjoyed a delicious meal for lunch yesterday. Loved that you can have two courses (either entree and main or main and dessert) for $49. I enjoyed the perfectly spiced Middle Eastern Fritters and the medium to rare Porterhouse steak with winter greens and my husband had the Calamari and a well cooked Porterhouse. We shared a side of delicious hand cut chips with garlic aioli. The accompanying Black Label Shiraz was delicious, so good I bought a bottle at the cellar door to take home. Will definitely be back again.
