Luxurious stay”

We stayed three nights at Balgownie. Check in was easy and I was surprised by how big the rooms were. The view was amazing and the property itself was stunning. We took nice pre-dinner strolls around the property and then had dinner at Rae's. Food was really good. You also get free wine tasting if you are a guest at the hotel. We really enjoyed ourselves at Balgownie and would definitely stay again if we return to Yarra Valley.

Romantic stay with a great value of money . ”

Location , Spa set up , Hotel Condition

My partner and I enjoyed our Yarra Valley overnight getaway. The resort had a great view, comfy suite, good facilities and a bathroom with an awesome view! I used to work for a luxury hotel chain and I couldn't help notice a things like a dusty bedside lampshade and dusty pendant lights over reception to name a couple. I'm sorry , I try my best not to go into "critique mode" but I just can't help it. When a place claims to be a 4.5 star luxury hotel, I expect it (facilities, people and experience) because I have experienced it. Overall, we had a great time and a relaxing stay.

A very nice vineyard in Yarra valley and good restaurant. I choose this place because I don’t want to get up early in the morning to do ballooning, saving one hour to sleep. And buffet breakfast is cheaper if u buy via ballooning company than u buy from here. The service is the same.

The room was very spacious and clean with a great view of Yarra Glenn's vine yard. The environment was peaceful and calm which was very relaxing. There's also a private Jacuzzi to ease your muscle after a long trip from Melbourne city. By walking to the top of the vine yard also allow you to catch the sunrise. Generally, a great hotel that i will definitely missed for a long time.

Fantastic 2nd stay here...”

We really loved Balgownie and all it had to offer. Brilliant, friendly staff in both the accommodation and restaurant areas, (Melissa at Reception, Hayley & Jess in the restaurant) delicious food, quick room service, delightful outlook and view and greatly appreciated complimentary upgrade for our 2nd stay in 2 weeks! The cooling system was difficult to manage tho and the bath towels too small. 2 minor issues that won't stop us staying there again in future :)

Great service and breathtaking scenery”

Beautiful views of the Yarra Valley, spacious rooms and luxurious furnishings, warm and hospitable staff.

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night in the resort. We were welcomed at reception by hospitable staff and arrived at our rooms to find them comfortably spacious and luxuriously furnished (the only exception being the weakly-powered hairdryer). The rooms offer beautiful views of the surrounding Yarra Valley and so does stepping outside the hotel. The staff were prompt and helpful with our requests. Our only regret was being unable to remain longer at the resort.

Not exactly what I expected”

vineyard scenery, cellar door, staff

I guess my expectations were high when the Balgownie Estate resort was recommended. I'm sure it could be much better and maybe it was just an off day. That said, I booked last minute and when we checked in I asked specifically if there was a room available with a balcony to be able to photograph the beautiful estate grounds. The receptionist said no but that our room had a fabulous view as all rooms do..NOT! Our room had a window with cobwebs and bird poo all over it and looked out at the backside of another building and onto the parking lot! Oh well...nothing that a little wine tasting couldn't cure and we were just in time to catch it before closing at 6pm. The gentleman at the cellar door was very knowledgeable and it was a delight to learn about the regional wines. Dinner at Rae's was good but not stella as expected for the price and the staff was very nice but I expected more sophistication at this price point. I also agree with one of the former reviewers that breakfast was disappointing when paying $32 pp. The eggs were runny, fruit looked reused and the nespresso machine couldn't keep up with people and didn't deliver hot drinks. My husband ended up ordering his coffee for extra. Luckily one of the staff (and I wish I caught her name) was nice enough to make me a complimentary flat white which was hot, saving the day Shameful that service can't be consistent for such a high end place.

The suite was very well-equipped with everything we required and more - spacious wash area & kitchen. View was lovely as well. Bed was really comfortable - we had a hard time getting out of bed.

Scenery, room and cleanliness

Though it was an one night stay, we did enjoy ourselves very much. The estate was very pretty and we wished we had taken the rooms with balcony. Nonetheless, our room was clean and comfortable. Believed the resort offers some walking route around the estate for those who want to explore the beauty of it. However, we skipped it due to the wet weather and muddy grounds. Overall, do recommend for couples who would like to have some quiet time together.
