Thank you Rebecca for your review. The only down side about your stay was that it was too short! We appreciate that we exceeded your expectations and look forward to your return, hopefully for a longer stay!

Timeless elegance in a relaxing setting on the rolling hills of the southeast. We spent a weekend away here and it lived up to its reputation of being a fine hotel. The views from the premier suite were spectacular. We loved having a calm, very scenic and tranquil atmosphere in which to wind down from the busy urban life. The suite was ample size, the bed super comfy with luxe linens, the bathroom had nice fixtures, lux towels and top of the line toiletries. We had breakfasts and homemade scones for afternoon tea and selection and quality was very much appreciated. Looking so forward to going back, it is the perfect weekend getaway. Tallawarra hosts were excellent - Andrey and Janine made us feel so warm and everything go smoothly when we arrived and departed. Their hospitality was one of best parts of staying at the Tallawarra, very thoughtful and caring to insure that we were enjoying our stay.

Jamie, your comprehensive review is fabulous ,we appreciate your kind words and most of all that you really did unwind and relax. As a hosted accommodation facility our focus is meeting and wherever possible exceeding our guests expectations. Our premium suite with its views of the arbor provides the perfect country aspect as you experienced. The roses are in full bloom as you could see from your bay window and we look forward to your return visit so we can catch up over some more scones.

We stumbled across this property and after reading the reviews which are all very complimentary we decided to give it a go. Andrey & Janine are wonderful hosts their sole purpose is your comfort and rest and relaxation without being too intrusive. We really enjoyed our evening and we’re sorry to have to leave. The special touches like afternoon tea, chocolates, fruit and port set this venue aside from others. Janines scones were outstanding with home made jam and cream. Breakfast was another standout, the food was fresh and very well prepared and presented. We were lucky enough to have a host of kangaroos go about their business fir our personal viewing before we headed to bed in the most comfy bed I’ve slept in, I was reluctant to get out the next morning. Do yourself a favour and take a break at Tallawarra you’ll be pleased you did. Thanks again for having us Janine & Andrey

Luxurious Accommodation in Peaceful Countryside

Pros: Tallawarra is a first class establishment: extremely well set up, clean and comfortable, with exceptional service.
Cons: No improvements are needed.
Location: Roughly half way between Pakenham and Warrigul, it is a perfect place for a peaceful rest, close to good restaurants and national parks.
Our hosts Andrey and Janine made us feel very welcome in their spacious and elegant home, and their warm and attentive hospitality was greatly appreciated. Our room was extremely comfortable, well supplied with fresh fruit and an excellent range of quality teas, and luxurious towels in the smart modern en suite. The full cooked Breakfast including fresh home made Bircher Muesli and yoghurt was excellent. Warmly recommended.
