I stayed here for a work conference. The food was very good and varied with the staff being friendly and very helpful. The downstairs rooms have very small bathrooms and can be noisy, the upstairs rooms have larger bathrooms and are not so noisy. Great location to breathe in the country air with the bonus of not being far from... More

The location is off the normal roads down a dirt track. When we found the place it was locked with no one in sight. The car park was empty. To all intents it appeared deserted. After ringing the contact number and not getting through to anyone, we tried calling Agoda who managed the booking. Again a lengthy process to speak... More

Our daughter had her wedding here yesterday and what a wonderful day it was. The ceremony was held on the lawn with a backdrop of the beautiful trees the Dandenong Ranges are famous for - although I believe if the weather hadn't been so kind to us it could have been moved to a room with a lovely view inside...

Spent 2 days at Country Place, a perfect conference venue . Great staff and wonderful food, very comfortable and well equipped meeting facilities. Accommodation is comfortable and adequate. Out of the way but close to Melbourne. Not sure it's a place for tourists, but we will be back to one of the functions they have.
