So I stayed at the estate with my partner for the night and to be honest as nice as the scenery was, for the price it cost me the rooms weren't amazing. They used old cushions, old towels the bath tub was not clean not the best, the furniture was quite old in the bedroom the side tables about 20years...

However the hotel do have a courtesy car and will if necessary...

Both my wife & I were very impressed with our suite & the cleanliness. From the living room & balcony the views were superb. Also the staff were very helpful in answering our questions, with suggestions of where to visit during our stay. I suggest asking for room with the Easterly views.

Unfortunately, during our stay there was construction happening on the road that leads into the estate, which also runs beside the "privilege" spa suites. We made the booking when the estate were aware that there was construction happening as there was a sign at...

Great location in the Yarra Valley close to Yarra Glen and many other wineries. Our room had a lovely view of the valley and the Dandenong ranges. Our room was also close to reception and the car park. We meet up with a group of friends at the resort and enjoyed a great meal at Rae's restaurant that night. The...

Beautiful overnight stay in spacious room with a view to Mt Dandenong. Delicious dinner at Rae's Restaurant with great choices and fabulous wine. Service was friendly, professional and knowledgeable, adding to the enjoyment. Great breakfast the next morning finished everything brilliantly. Thanks for a great stay!

Nice complex, good food, comfortable room however the staff on check in were quite rude because we'd turned up 30 minutes early. Restaurant and wine tasting services were fantastic. For the price we paid $580, we probably won't be returning.
