Stayed with friends at a three bedroom townhouse. Spacious and clean, loved the views. Dining at the resort was fantastic. Staff very helpful. Great wineries right outside the resort. Lots of restaurants, wineries and local produce to buy close by at Pokolbin.

Very nice golf course with magnificent sceneries, and the golf buggies are top notched! Always well maintained, and never disappoints. Great location (everything within 15 mins), the accomodation is ideal place to stay for visiting all the cellar doors.
