“Excellent Yarra Valley accommodation”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Summary:
De'Vine Escape provides excellent accommodation in a pretty vineyard setting, next door to Fergusson Winery.

Arriving at De'Vine Escape:
Check-in is nominally at 14:00. The office is only open during the day but they have arrangements for the room key pick-up after hours. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and given some tips on where to dine and what to see.

De'Vine Escape:
It's in a pretty location but you'll need to drive if going anywhere other than next door to the Fergusson Winery.

Rooms:
Rooms are bright, large, stylish and modern. The bathroom is good and spacious. Everything was spotless. There is a small patio off each room overlooking the vines. For our 2 night stay there was no servicing. The TV needs to be updated to digital.

Meals:
There is no restaurant. Fergusson Winery, next door can provide breakfast and lunch on most days but dinner is only available on Friday and Saturday nights.

Facilities:
Most things you will want to do in the Yarra Valley will need a drive to get there. You can however be picked up for a wine tour.

De'Vine Escape staff:
The staff (Jo) was always helpful and cheery.

Leaving De'Vine Escape:
Check-out is nominally at 10:00. Late check-out is possible (subject to availability). We asked and were allowed a noon check-out.

The surrounds are amazing, lovely to go for a walk. Staff are very kind and accommodating. We loved the proximity to Fergusson Winery, able to walk down for a meal and some great wine without having to worry about driving. The heater was great, our room was toasty!!

The name says it all! Samantha was brilliant in organising everything and the room was modern, very clean and ultra peaceful! The spa was definitely a highlight (thanks for supplying the bubble-bath too!) and the separate shower was also appreciated. The powerful split-system kept us toasty and warm, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on! It was a pleasure to wake up to beautiful vineyards and the fresh country air. I am already recommending it to others!

Room Tip: Gor for the spa suite!

If you would like a couple of days, where you can slow the pace of life for a couple of days, DeVine Escape, fills the requirements, the sun streaming in the window in the morning over the grape vine field, the tranquil setting and so many wineries or beautiful scenery to calm the business of everyday life, I have come back fully refreshed, ready to continue with the hum drum of life.

The staff were very friendly but the accommodation while neat and clean was overpriced. The room was simple but the heating was totally inadequate and I would suggest a stay in the warmer months.

Thank-you for taking the time to review our property, all feedback is extremely important to us as it helps assist with the constant monitoring of quality and service. We are sorry to hear you felt our heating let you down, all our suites are fitted with their own split systems with variable heating controls, but as noted your Winter stay was during a 13 year record of lowest overnight temperatures in the Yarra Valley. Regarding pricing, we are one of the best value accomodation places in the Valley, allowing one night stays (including Saturdays) is unique to the area as most places have 2 night minimum stays. We also have to account for the 12.5% booking commision charged by the booking agency used. We do often run special promotions through our facebook page so please become out FB friend and keep in the loop - it's a chance for us to have direct to our office bookings without the fees associated with visitors centres and booking agencies. We look forward to Welcoming you again perhaps in the warmer months!
