Nice complex, good food, comfortable room however the staff on check in were quite rude because we'd turned up 30 minutes early. Restaurant and wine tasting services were fantastic. For the price we paid $580, we probably won't be returning.

We stayed for two nights the room was disappointing were were put in a disabled room which we didn't require there was no view not even a window that we could open. For the cost of $333 for the two nights it was very ordinary the air conditioner was so loud it kept us awake. We have stayed in a...

We arrived too early to check in, but the receptionist suggested a couple of places we could visit close by and sent me a text when our room was ready. Our room was bright and spacious and the toiletries smelled great, and we were given a suite rather than the standard room. Staff at the cellar door were friendly and...

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 The decor of the room is outdated, with chipped tiles in the...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.

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...
