                Disapointing

                I pre-paid and booked six rooms, a further seventh room was paid for on the day of arrival (16th november) All six prepaid by myself Susan Jacks through booking .com. In two of the rooms 309 and the one directly below a significant musty smell was noticed on check in...and on returning to the rooms including 311 that evening a smell not dissimilar to sewerage was noticable.. That increased during the evening to be particularily unpleasant by morning. This was brougt to the the attention of the receptionist on check out.. on saturday the 17th..who said .." she was unaware of a problem in our block...but was aware of a problem with the sewerage in another wing !!! (Sewerage is all connected)

                The location, food and vineyard wines are excellent.

                Our queen room was not the same as the photo on the Accor or Booked.net websites. It was a dark corner room with a sliver of glass. The website did caution limited views but no effort was made to brighten the space. One low watt eco bulb in the ceiling and low watt bedside lights. It was very difficult to read and virtually impossible to work at the small desk. Only 1 chair in a double room?!!

                Nice location

                Queen room is really small and not worth it

                Staff was friendly and helpful

                Natskin facilities were unavailable on demand.

                Excellent design, great location and views.

                Restaurant overpriced

                A wonderful base for the vineyards providing fine dining and comfort and lovely setting.

                It's a beautiful place in a fantastic location and the wine is amazing. You get free wine tasting with the price of the room and 10% off all wines and you get to try about 15 different types, they were all delicious. The customer service was second to none both in the hotel and at the restaurant and the room was fantastic. It over looked the whole valley and the added bonus was a spa bath in the middle of the room with glass surround directing outwards over the balcony. I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone, we were even accommodated for when the restaurant was full and the taxi never turned up to take us to the restaurant we booked down the road. They made room for us even though they were packed thankfully.

                Excellent facilities - Natskin Spa best ever experienced. Staff in restaurant were outstanding.

                Front office staff could do with increased customer service training and knowledge of the area to be able to assist guests with recommendations on eateries etc.

              • Couple

                This was our second stay at the resort and we will stay again. The rooms are very comfortable. The decor is very relaxing and well thought out.

                The menu for room service could be expanded a bit more as we did not feel the options were all that inspiring

              • Couple
                6.2

                The location is good and the restaurant was nice

                Not very good value for money. The room was not clean (mould in shower, dirty wine glasses and cheese left behind from the last guest!). I wouldn't recommend it, there are a lot of alternatives in the area.

              • Couple
                7.8

                Good spa facilities and restaurant a short walk from the room.

                Reception was very small and the queue was out the door. Standard rooms lack the view of the upstairs ones and we didn't have a bath.

                9.2

                The accommodation was lovely - clean and spacious with lovely views over the Yarra Valley. The Dinner at Rae's restaurant was very nice food and the staff at the wine tasting were really knowledgeable and friendly.

                perhaps just a little expensive - we would loved to have stayed longer, we only stayed one night - as probably a little expensive to stay longer - perhaps providing long weekend special packages would make it a little more affordable.

              • Couple
                6.2

                Facilities and restaurant quality of food were excellent. Surrounding area and ambience of resort was great.

                Dont book a queen room - they are tiny and have no view unlike what it shows in the booking screen....

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Evening meal was great, however, service was very slow between starter and main. Drinks on the coach in front of the lovely fire was excellent. Enjoyed the wine tasting and staff were very knowledgable. Suite was spacious and well fitted out.

                Bed was not as comfortable as we would have expected. Rooms lost heat very quickly, and the noise of the heating system was excessive.
