Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It was a wonderful experience! Me and my mom stayed in the Coachouse with two rooms. It was spacious and homey, with a fireplace in front and great bathtub! Everything was provided, and the gardens and views were beautiful, and the chickens a highlight. Betty was lovely and we could tell the place was lovingly looked after. Also everything was provided that we needed, and Betty was very quick to respond via text if we needed anything. We will definitely be going back in the future to stay for more days! And highly recommend staying at Gracehill <3

We stayed for 5 nights at Gracehill recently in The Barn. It was absolutely fantastic Betty met us as we arrived late but what a delight to walk into warm, beautifully appointed accommodation. Thank you Betty for all the goodies as well. We would highly recommend Gracehill for a beautiful peaceful getaway.

My family, two adults and two young kids, recently stayed at Gracehill in the Coach House for a little over a week. I can't recommend it more highly. The space was lovely - warm, cosy and beautifully furnished. Our kids loved the yard and the playground. Betty was a delightful host and was always available if we needed anything. We will be back, thank you Betty.

One of the nicest places I’ve been to near Melbourne. The property is located in a rural area a short driving distance from Olinda, sitting in a really peaceful and beautiful forest. The host is really nice and helpful. The room I booked is fantastic, which I could have stayed longer! Clean, comfortable, nice decoration and splendid view. Worth visiting to get away from the city, into the nature and take a few days to relax and breath some fresh pure air.

Gracehill is the most peaceful and beautiful property. From the enormous and beautiful views to the gardens and friendly birdlife. Our apartment was a lovely surprise with an excellent feeling of quiet opulence and warmth. We are already planning how soon we can return. Leigh Cameron.

10/10! Betty was a wonder host. We arrived late in the night to was very warm welcome & already warm lodgings. From the breakfast hamper to the super soft linen/bed/towels, nothing was below par. Was so lovely waking up early each morning & having the first coffee on the porch listening to nothing but the birds singing. Gracehill was easily found using Google Maps, and is well sign posted from the main road. Can’t wait to get back there and spend more time wandering the gardens & trails.

We stayed in the Coachouse, and it was outstanding. I did not want to leave. Booking and check-in were simple and seamless. The fridge and cupboards were stocked with everything you need. The furnishings were lavish and clean, and the grounds were spectacular. I'll definitely be back again.

We stayed in the Coachouse for 5 days and the accomodation was outstanding in all its amenities. Beautifully furnished, spacious accommodation. The owners have considered every need and amenity their guests require and provided them at a very high standard e.g. Hot tub, luxurious couches, laundry, huge kitchen, dining inside and outside, large screen TV, fireplace and so much more. The grounds of the estate are beautiful for picnics or walks and very private and relaxing. The breakfast provisions were very generous and the best quality we've ever experienced in our travels. Truly outstanding attention to detail by the owners.

We stayed in "The Barn" which was ideal for our family of 5. Gracehill is immaculately presented and superbly maintained. We loved the peaceful serenity at Gracehill. Our kids also loved the spa, playground, wide open space and walking tracks. The included amenities were appreciated too. In summary, it's a fantastic & peaceful place to relax at! Thanks! Bill

If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay, you must stay here. When we arrived we were welcomed by the owner who had stocked our fridge with food.The house was clean and well maintained. The surrounding gardens can only be described as a tucked away oasis. Thank you Gracehill
