This accommodation is fantastic if you're looking to get away from the hustle of metro life. The house is huge, comfortable and always welcoming. Ample provisions are provided on arrival. Beds are comfortable and the whole place clean. Views from around the property are wonderful, I never want to leave.

A great base for all the surrounding countryside has to offer -- walks and wineries were top on our list. The house was clean and spacious with enough bedrooms, bathrooms and sitting areas to easily accommodate larger groups in comfort. Our host, Fiona could not have been more helpful. I would recommend Westgate to anyone who needs a break from...

The accommodation was great, extremely comfortable and clean. The views were to die for, especially watching the sunset from the water tank. Early morning walks allow you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside though the property is a quick trip into Ararat. The hosts Fiona, Tim and the boys are great, friendly but not invasive. We were...

We loved having you all. There's nothing like the mercurial nature of the weather here - freezing one moment - then hot enough for the pool the next. You do get to experience all the benefits of the house and surrounds when it does that! Best Regards

We stayed for one night recently at the Westgate Vineyard and Country House, with my wife, 1.5yo daughter and our Shih-Tzu. We have not had a more relaxing accommodation experience in recent memory, with a fantastic setting well away from civilisation perched on top of a hill looking into the distance. The house is very large and comfortably appointed with...

Thanks for you kind words Angus W! So glad you enjoyed your brief stay. It is a very special part of the world isn't it? I hope the goats you saw were in fact our Alpacas - if we have goats we might be in trouble because they are not meant to be here! Ha Ha! We use the Alpacas...

Lovely warm welcome from Fiona. House was wonderful, spacious lounge area and bedrooms with huge kitchen where we created a wonderful meal for the five of us utilising the BBQ with meat from Ararat.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Westgate. What a fabulous location! Sunrise, sunset, delightful gardens, and a working farm that reflects Fiona and Tim's commitment to sustainability. It was our first visit to the Grampians and we enjoyed Ararat, Great Western and Hall's Gap. The country hospitality was just a delight. Nothing was too much trouble....

Thank you Fiona, for such a lovely stay. The view is stunning, a feast for the eyes, and a rest for the soul. The house is so comfortable, with a kitchen better equipped than mine.

Thank you for that lovely review! Its nice to come back to a cosy house and bed - especially when you've been out to dinner and it's cold outside. It makes the difference between a hotel and a B&B. We hope you'll come back again and stay a little longer next time. Don't forget we give discounts to repeat guests....

There are 3 bathrooms and a very well equipped kitchen plus a barbecue outside. The house is located within an expansive established garden with ample outdoor eating areas and a swimming pool. There is a slow combustion wood heater (wood provided) for those not-so-hot days and reverse cycle air-conditioning. The views from the house are stunning in all directions and a gentle stroll up along the ridge will provide 360 degree views of both the Pyrenees and the Grampians. A perfect place to watch the sunset!Westgate is situated within the renowned Grampians wine growing region and close to Ararat, Stawell and Halls Gap. ... more   less
