Great location - close to other points of attraction - cheese/chocolate factory other wineries. Having a facial onsite was excellent - the staff there were terrific and did not push the hard sell on their products. I would go again.

Excellent choice

Pros: Facilities readily available on-site, everything you need. Room was well equipped and spacious
Cons: Our room was a little noisy at night, with generators able to be heard going on and off during the night and audible from the bedroom.
Location: More winery options than you'll need. Chocolatier a few short kms from the resort, Yarra Valley dairy is also a must.
Great resort atmosphere. For short stays you really don't have to leave. With a day spa, restaurant, cellar door & excellent views it really is a beautiful choice of accomodation for those new to the area or returning visitors. Amazing dining at Rae's restaurant and very friendly cellar door staff willing to help with you wine choice, We greatly enjoyed our weekend stay and will be back very soon!
