I came here as part of a wine tour. The wines were really nice and the staff were very knowledgable. The lunch was delicious too - I had the lamb which was perfectly cooked. We got to taste a couple of premium wines which were really nice.

We stayed for two nights at Balgownie Estate over a weekend. Check in was fine, although we had to wait around as it was unattended for 10 minutes which was a little annoying because we were late for our dinner reservations. We stayed in a privilege spa suite. The decor of the room is outdated, with chipped tiles in the...

Stayed here for our anniversary. Beautiful, peaceful place. Clean spacious accomodation. Enjoyed relaxing massage in the day spa & relaxed in the indoor pool. Had a delicious 3 course dinner at Rae's Restaurant & buffet breakfast which was part of our package. There were other activities to do but we came to relax and unwind. Highly recommend.

My wife and I availed ourselves last week of a package which one nights accommodation, breakfast and a two course dinner in the restaurant. Also included was a bottle of Cuvee and since we're not really bubbles drinkers, I asked whether we could have a Balgownie Pinot Gris and this was granted without ado. The prestige spa room is very...

This place was well appointed and roomy with the staff being more than helpful and proactive. Definately make sure you get a room on top floor as the views are magnificent and more private. The beds however need improvement for a 5 star place and probably need to be replaced. I was fine but my partner who is 84kgs slept...

We have just spent a night at this vineyard, courtesy of a Valley Views Package, in a one bedroom spa suite. The room was fantastic. It was tastefully decorated,clean, spacious with great views. The room had free on demand movies which was very useful. My wife had a spa package- massage and facial which she absolutely loved. The meals at...

Beautiful resort with all the facilities you'd need for a short break. Had a room with a spa that outlooked on to the vineyards. Would definitely recommend. The room service was average, that tiny thing aside we had a wonderful stay 😀

A wonderful property - views, location, shame they drop points from missing all the fine points one expects when paying a premium price - cleaning is not up to scratch or general servicing of the rooms.

Not only is the wine that you can sample and purchase exquisite - so is the food, service and the rooms with gorgeous views of the vinyard. Book yourself a massage or beauty treatment at the Spa and it's the perfect weekend away! Have been there numerous times and were never disappointed!
