De'Vine Escape
Reviewed September 12, 2013

On arrival Sam was very welcoming, telling us some great places to visit. As there are no taxi's out there she informed us of a driver that may have been available as well.

We arrived on the Saturday and unfortunately Fergussons down the road was closed for dinner. We decided to just stay in our room which was lovely and tidy and save ourselves for the following night!

We were up nice and early on Sunday morning to have breakfast at fergussons to find out it was closed again.
We then went on a winery tour (starving and hoping not to get to tipsy to early). We visited some beautiful sites around the Yarra Valley.

During the day we were thinking about what we would do for dinner, so we called the lovely lady that Sam said might be available to drive us into town and unfortunatley she wasnt. Completely understandable as it was fathers day after all - would have felt a little bad if she did say yes!
So we decided we'd go to fergussons for dinner as its nice and close and we could walk home afterwards.

We were talking to our lovely tour guide about the situation and she thought it would be a good idea to check if fergussons were open after all they were closed for dinner and breakfast.
Not surprisingly they weren't.

We were very lucky she suggested us to check this as we would have been stuck in our room again as we would not have been able to drive anywhere after the wine tour!
Our tour guide insisted she would take us somewhere for dinner because she didnt want us to have a disappointing night in our room and hungry again. She picked us up and dropped us home which was amazing of her!

We completely understand that Ferguson's is a totally different business to de'vine escape and this is not de'vine escapes problem at all.
It was just a little disappointing that when we booked our accommodation,we got a package which included 2 nights accommodation, a wine tour and a free wine tasting at fergussons winery, so we assumed they would be open for business.

De'vine Escape was a lovely place to say, just very disappointing we couldn't have been made aware that we in fact weren't getting our full package.

What a lovely little spot! We arrived in the dark and in the morning what a beautiful sight from our room. From the moment we booked the level of service and attention to detail was impressive. Pleasant people, very helpful and the perfect location to base your Yarra Valley trip from!

We had a day and night in the Yarra Valley, we chose to stay at De'Vine Escape because it ticked all the boxes and we found Jo extremely helpful when we first inspected the rooms, months in advance. We had two couples in our party and found that both rooms were furnished and fitted out perfectly, everything was as clean and as tidy as you could expect. Jo arranged for a driver for us to a local winery for lunch and picked us up herself, afterwards, this all added to the sheer enjoyment of our day. Thanks Jo for a relaxing stay.

On arrival Jo was helpful directing us to local eateries open. After opening the door to the room we were amazed at the view onto the Vineyards and the beautiful gardens. The layout and furnishings in the room were of high quality. Perfect a night or a week. Close to wineries and attractions. Would recommend highly to anybody looking to travel and escape to the Yarra Valley.

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend away with our family here - Jo was very helpful in her room selections for us. We booked it via a deals.com offer and were very happy with the location. This accommodation ticks all the right boxes its clean, quiet and a short walk to Fergussons winery for breakfast & dinner. Would definitely recommend this as a superb base from which to explore the Yarra valley and a lovely vista to wake up to :)

Beautiful place to stay. Rooms were very clean and having the complimentry Muscat on the table was a winner as I had to go and buy a bottle.We will be sure to stay here again. My wife and I could not believe how peaceful and quiet it was which made our stay more relaxing. The place is fairly central to all the popular wineries which made it easy to visit a few of them

Thank-you for your lovely review, glad to hear you enjoyed the peace and quiet of our countryside, allowing you to relax and unwind, even in one of our coldest Winters to date. By arrangement with our friends at DeBortoli we have a nip of complimentary Muscat in our 3 spa rooms as a special Winter treat, to help warm the cockles of your heart! Happy to hear you enjoyed it.

We look forward to welcoming you both back for another DeVine escape.

My partner and I stayed at De'Vine Escape for two nights over the weekend.
Jo was very helpful and friendly on arrival and made us feel very welcome. The room was lovely and spacious. Very clean and comfortable.
Great location with many wineries within a short drive and a couple within walking distance.
The picturesque surroundings make you feel instantly relaxed. Wonderful break from our busy lives! Thank you!
