A bit disappointed
We enjoyed a one night stay at Balgownie Estate and loved the picturesque outlook of the room. The spa bath was great and generally everything was very comfortable and clean. Unfortunately there was not much for us to use in the kitchenette in the way of crockery, cutlery etc. We were also a little disappointed with the pool as it has no shallow area for kids. We couldn't connect to the WiFi and some TV stations were not available in the bedroom. But we enjoyed going walking around the property and witnessed others enjoying various activities and the jumbo chess set. A great location to stay not far from Yarra Glen.

Small room and over priced
For $250 I was expecting a somewhat larger room than my home closet.They did have nice coffee and cookies and it was clean. The shower was so slippery that it was dangerous. I told the girl at the front desk and she all but argued with me. I told her that I had slipped and she should have the floor of the shower checked. She then said that perhaps the grips on the floor and been washed away...NO LIE!

Unexpected Gem!
First off, the hotel is close to lots of nearby wineries and the chocolate factory. Secondly, it was gorgeous and an unexpected gem in the Yarra Valley. We were only staying one night, and wished we had booked more for our trip. The space was clean and comfortable, and the jacuzzi made a nice addition to our romantic honeymoon.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Overall it was ok but a few issues. Could be better considering price tag and advertised luxury. Booked and paid for 3 people but only received towels, linen etc for 2. Had to ask them for extra and also to make up the foldout couch (lucky we noticed it hadn't been made when we did because housekeeping finishes at 5pm). Couch had crumbs all over it and was really really uncomfortable. May have been broken. There were toenail clippings on the bedroom floor which was gross. Hotel view was really nice overlooking hills and a valley. Spent a while enjoying the afternoon sun on the balcony. Hotel restaurant was overpriced and did not (adequately) cater for vegetarians. We went to Dixons Creek Bar & Grill 10 minutes down the road - nothing fancy but it was good honest food - appeared to be a local favourite. Nice change from the pretentious winery staff we dealt with all day. Wouldn't stay again, I'd Air Bnb for same price and get a whole house.
