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.

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.

Customer Service”

The customer service at the reception desk upon our arrival (approximately 12:20pm) was quite off putting. Immediately, the staff member had seemed annoyed that we came around that time rather than 2pm as they don’t guarantee early checkins. I tried to explain that I received an email from their staff member prior to our check in day asking “ would 12pm be suitable for a leisurely morning after your balloon flight or are you looking for something even earlier?” (I responded that 12pm was fine). However, as I tried to explain the email, the reception staff member had interrupted me and reiterated that they don’t guarantee early checkins. I don’t at all disagree with her statement and I understand that all accommodation places certainly try to accommodate such requests but not always feasible. But I don’t agree with the way that staff member treated me upon arrival which made me feel unwelcome. In saying that, other staff members were really lovely and certainly much more polite than that initial interaction with that staff member.
