We stayed in this establishment with two preschoolers. The hotel was very quiet and very comfortable, (in fact our grandchildren were the noise factor!) The staff were absolutely wonderful to them, (and to us.)
We all enjoyed the lovely heated indoor pool for swimming and with out the children the golf course would have been very inviting.
The meals were wonderful and special dietary requirements were catered for without fuss. The morning breakfast was amazing. The best gluten free bread ever. The scrambled eggs were the only disappointment not being made to order as we're the other egg dishes. You had so many other dishes to choose from this was not a problem.
I would recommend this hotel if you would like to take a break in the heart of the Yarra Valley. I do not think that you would be disappointed.

Room Tip: I do not think that you would get a bad room. It would be a preference of a view you wanted. Park or golf course maybe.

This is a great property - comfortable and roomy rooms. The staff were great service providers and very helpful when providing information of what to do in the Yarra Valley. The 'Retreat' was a great area with day spa, gym, pool and tennis courts ... and staff also very friendly and helpful.
The golf course (even though we didn't play it) looks amazing and if we had the time we would have liked to have a walk through it.
The only negative is that there is not a casual dining area - Bella is the main dining room and it is very upmarket and quite expensive (but very worth it). If the Sebel introduced a cafe/bistro to this property it would be great.

Room Tip: All rooms on any floor has good views - however, the rooms on ground floor might not be that great.

I organised our company national sales meeting at this venue. It was ideal for this purpose.
The conference facilities were of a high standard. We were able to have our meeting, breaks, lunch etc all in the same place which saved time making our way to restaurants etc.
The conference rooms were quiet and well serviced by extremely courteous and helpful staff.
The hotel rooms were very large and beautifully appointed. Meals were excellent.
The grounds were beautiful, golf course nature trails, gym.
I must say again, the courtesy shown by the team at the Sebel Heritage was brilliant! I would definitely recommend this venue for not only business meeting but for vacation or a break away.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, mine was on the ground floor which was handy to everything.

Rooms are modern, clean, spacious & comfortable. Food lovely. The outlook is peaceful and quiet. I loved the treat & poetic note left on the pillow at turndown - a lovely touch. Overall, a pleasant stay.

I went there for a conference, accompanied by my husband. As a conference location it was great. The staff was very nice and helpfull, breakfast was really good (with fresh fruit, smoked salmon, different types of cheese, croissants,...), the rooms were nice and clean and the meeting rooms were spacious.

The hotel is on a domain with a golf course. The golf club building has one side reserved for members of the club and on side where also guests can have a drink and eat a snack.

Overall the service in the hotel is really good and it's really quiet. I would recommend it for a quiet weekend. Guests can also use the spa facilities, but besides the spa, getting a golf course or take a walk outside (and spot some kangaroos), there isn't much to do. You have to take a car to go to the nearest shops or attraction. There are some nice local wineries in the area though that you can visit.

The only downside is that if you want to use Internet connection in your room, this is rather expensive.
