We visited for a quick weekend getaway. This was a bit of a hidden gem. Room was very big, clean and comfortable. Free breakfast was included, it was a pretty good offering for a free buffet. Plenty of free parking. Staff were friendly. The complex had a really good feeling. Prices were very reasonable. It is in the middle of...

My wife and I spent a night here and enjoyed a large standard room (overlooking the car park toward the forest). It was a quiet room, with a comfortable bed, a decent couch to read on and desk to work on (with free wifi). We went to Blood on the Southern Cross at Sovereign Hill that night after dinner, which...

A great experience from the moment I booked to the last meal we had after checking out. A few weeks after booking I rung to check it would be ok if I added an additional person to my booking. Handled politely and told no problem. A personal phone call confirming my reservation by a very friendly & bubbly voice -...

Having stayed for a business congress. we found the resort very nice but the in house food was not of the usual standards we expect from a RACV resort. the Lunches at the congress were I believe below par and the sizes were far too small

We have visited the majority of RACV Resorts / Hotels in Australia, some multiple times and never had reason to complain. This was our first visit to this facility. The hotel, accommodation and service largely met our expectations. However, dinner at the Harvest Restaurant spoilt our stay and that of our friends, whom we had invited to join us, to...

What a great location to explore Ballarat, Daylesford and Creswick itself. Visited mid week and stayed in the fairway view room, nice view of the course, lovely bathroom with spa, comfy bed. We played golf both days and enjoyed a refreshing dip in the pool after golf. The restraunt was excellent and staff very friendly.

Dear tassietourer Thanks for your review - I'm a bit jealous, it sounds like a lovely few days with golf, swimming and good food. We hope that you enjoyed our unique golf course. It has a beautiful forest setting and continues to improve as we invest in upgrading the condition and softening up some of the more difficult aspects. We...

If you just want to relax and play a game of golf, this is a good place. The accomodation is comfortable. We had a room with a view of the golf course. The forest views would have had the afternoon sun but our balcony was lovely in late afternoon. The restaurant was very good although it was not open Monday...

This resort offers a great package and is well position in terms of access from Melbourne and if you are an RACV Club member rates are very attractive. Staff are friendly and helpful. A good package but starting to look a bit tired.
