We stayed here for 2 nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The wines are very good and the room we stayed in was a one bedroom spa suite which is very spacious. We did not use the spa, pool or gym but they looked very good. There are plenty of places to visit, we would definitely recommend it.

We booked at Balgownie for a night as convince before our early morning balloon flight. Very impressed by the cleanliness of the room, friendliness of the staff and the convenient coffee offered before the balloon flight.

The rooms were clean and roomy, but the lovely estate gardens were the best part for us. We enjoyed each wander to another part of the resort, through the rose gardens, and a rest on the lawn in a rare sunny moment. The walk to the top of the hill is not very well maintained, but we were told this...

I made a reservation for dinner prior to my arrival and made a remark saying that it will be my mom birthday and hope the restaurant can help prepare a special dessert or something. When I checked-in, a nice friendly staff even reminded me about my restaurant reservation at 7. Great! However, after I dropped my stuff in my room,...

We booked the 2 night self-drive package across both Balgownie Estate Yarra Valley and Bendigo. We enjoyed our night at Yarra Valley with a late afternoon wine tasting and a very relaxing room with views from both the balcony and spa bath. The walk around the hills and vines behind the resort was a very pleasant start to our next...

We stayed here for 4 days in early January. We have a family of five and the family suite we had was huge, clean and well equipped. Staff were helpful and nice, pool was clean (and the kids loved it) and the location was great - a good area to explore for families. Breakfast was overly expensive but nice enough....

I stayed at Balgownie Estate Vineyard Resort for one night after Easter. The resort was very quiet which I was happy about as I was able to have the amenities to myself. The indoor pool and steam room were enjoyable but would feel crowded if other guests were also using it. Balgownie is situated in a lovely location and I...
