The accomodation at Hepburn Spa Resort was absolutely fine. It was the incredibly appalling experience we had at the Spa itself that will never leave me. Where do I start? Customer service just does not exist. This was explained by a lovely attendant, who told us that he was the longest serving member of staff. He had been there five months! There is no sense of this business being run with any consideration for what the expectations of the client may be… Unless you are a member of that particular group in society who are quite okay with dirty amenities, confusing signage, taps that do not work, non-existent hot water service, the list goes on…Heaven forbid if you want to speak to someone! There is just no one in charge. There is no one seemingly running this place! I paid over $1200 for three nights accommodation and a spa package for two people. The spa package included a massage for one and a facial for one. These were amazing. It was from this point on that everything went pear-shaped. The public spa area is a disgusting health hazard. There are clearly no systems to ensure cleanliness of the client before they enter the spa – of course when the showers don’t work, does anyone really think that the busloads of Asian tourists are going to shower… I don’t think so. Part of our package included a local grazing platter. We decided the only thing local about it, was it someone had popped over to Daylesford to Coles to pick up a tub of Tzatiki. Dreadful. Safe your $$$

Property lacked basic necessities for cooking. Aircon was on max but the room was not cool enough. As a spa resort we wished for complimentary bath essentials at the least consider the price you pay. The only complimentary product was milk, which was expired. Overall disappointing.

It was set out lovely. Nice and peaceful but it wasn’t very clean. Very dusty and there was a cockroach and mould in the cupboard. I read other reviews about the mould and cockroach that were done a while ago. It obviously they don’t bother looking at the feedback. Definitely not worth the money I paid.

Beautifully presented accomodation in an excellent location. Staff at check-in were super friendly and efficient. Incredibly comfortable bed and dazzling clean bed linen and towels. A definite return for us.

The rooms themselves were comfy and in general fairly tidy. However they were a bit dusty. A few issues which should definitely not have been there especially when paying in excess of $300 per night. The bathroom sink was blocked, the shower handle came off when used, the spa tap was loose and the caulking in the spa was coming apart, block out blinds offer little blockout from the morning light which stopped us having a good sleep in. They may be all small things but all of this detracts from the feeling of being in a luxurious space. The location is fantastic being minutes away from all the shops spas restaurants and waterfalls etc yet far enough to be hidden from any local traffic.

Arrived and told key was missing so come back after 3pm. Got key at 3.20pm. Villa had wardrobe door broken off hinges. Room was filthy and covered in an inch of dust. Wifi and Foxtel not working. Towels smelt of cooking fat. Was disgusting. I rang the number provided for assistance and no one picked up so I then sent photos to a mobile after hours number and whilst we were out somebody came in and fixed wardrobe and dusted. I paid $540 a night for this. So disappointing and I will be contacting the ombudsman for a return of my money.
