A very good lunch with some interesting menu choices and flavours. We had some very good Viognier too .Good service and friendly staff. Nice views though we didn’t get a chance to walk around the vineyard. Lovely building steeped in history.

We checked into Belgownie for a good friends wedding. After getting the wedding rate (which was essentially a premium on top of the normal price anyway), we were shocked to find out the the AUD$345 (normally $390) room didn’t come with breakfast - we were advised that it would cost an additional $35pp on top of our room rate for a buffet style breakfast. In many ways, this is yet another example of what is so wrong with the hospitality industry in Australia. Very basic, dated room, mould in the bathroom and no trimmings besides some water. For that price, breakfast should be included at the very least, noting that those ppl who attend weddings/functions there are only using the room out of convenience to get dressed in and save themselves from driving home… Querying of why breakfast wasn’t included was met with a condescending response that frankly wasn’t good enough, yet we’ve come to expect from similar places…
For a coffee and some buffet-style eggs/bacon, (both valued significantly under the $35pp we would’ve been charged) this should’ve been included, no question.
It was a $220 room, if that. Next time I’ll drive home.

Had been here 12 months ago while they were rebuilding after the fires had damaged their property and had a great experience. We returned again for a 2 night stay while i worked in the area. We stayed in the newly renovated suites and can highly recommend them. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, considering how busy they were, we had an excellent experience, nothing was too much trouble. Restaraunt and wines are excellent, buffet breakfast was great, my wife had a fantastic experience at the spa, while i worked mind you, but we really could not fault the 2 days of relaxation. We highly recommend this fantastic place.

Website advises of luxury accomodation and the room we stayed in certainly was not. Small, not clean and our room access key did not work for our entire stay so had to visit reception every time we wanted into our room. They tried new key card and resetting door but nothing worked so we cut our trip short and left after 24 hours. Staff didn't seem to think having no access to room was an issue! Asked to be moved to new room but not available.
The restaurant is really good and the meal was delicious but think twice before actually staying here.
