Unique winery - better than a hotel!

Great little spot - even exploring the winery grounds is fun. Loved that breakfast is included - and it’s not just token breakfast but a full cafe selection. We were in the water room which I think is not as fun as the other rooms, but it was fun showering in a water tank. Great base for us to explore the coast from Ocean Grove to Lorne.

The Marilyn Room

We stayed in the Marilyn Room on Saturday night as we were in Ocean Grove for a 60th Birthday party. Fiona greeted us and showed us upstairs to our room. The room was spotless - the air con was on and all the facilities were perfect. Fiona was very helpful and explained all the things available to us in the room and also offered to book us a taxi - excellent customer service - thank you! We didn't get a chance to use the restaurant or cafe but we will next time as they looked amazing. We did pop in to the Cellar Door and sampled some fabulous wines served to us by Brett. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and we are looking forward to drinking our purchases! Highly recommended - we will be back. Allison

5 out of 5
Pros: Had a very nice rustic feel to it with our bathroom being part of old water. Rooms themed - another room was Marilyn Monroe room
Cons: Hard to improve
Location: Set at winery and not far from Geelong and Ocean Grove.
3 rooms for guest in lovely setting at winery with many separate areas for relaxing. 2 separate restaurants - ate breakfast at one but the other one looked good for another stay in the future.

Brilliant in every way, highly recommend

Pros: EVERYTHING.
Cons: Only down side, and small at that, would have been nice to know when booking that a Wedding was going to be held on the Saturday night, below our room
Location: Everything about a vineyard on your doorstep.
Staff made the whole experience worthwhile, from cellar door to Mr Grubb and at Martys and accomadition was first class, go people go.

Excellent food but accommodation too noisy for us.

Pros: The gardens, the art work, beautiful old trees.
Cons: A more comfortable bed.
Location: Close to Queenscliff, Point Lonsdale, Ocean grove and Barwon Heads which was great.
Food at both the restaurant and Mr Grub was excellent. The attic room was ok - bed not all that comfortable, but the room well decked out with tea, coffee, nibbles and local produce samples. Too noisy for us - Grubb Rroad was busy most of the time and there was noise from the restaurant/s and car park/s.Would recommend dining at one of the restaurants, especially during the day but wouldn't stay overnight again. The setting was stunning - loved the garden, magnificent old trees, art works and general ambiance.
