We are local to the resort and generally visit a couple of times a year. The thing I enjoy most is the attentive but relaxed nature of the staff. Nothing is ever to much trouble, and you get to have a 'real' yarn with them, instead of stilted 'politically correct' conversation you get in many bigger establishments. We were recently...

My stay at the Goldfields resort was in the Premium Fairway Suite. The hotel and the room provided for a most enjoyable weekend getaway. The suite had the fit and finish for even the most attentive. Imitation log fire is the centre piece of the suite being viewed from both the lounge and the bedroom. The selection of bed coverings...

Visiting RACV with a group to celebrate a special birthday and disappointed this resort is not the usual standard. There was no parking on arrival, our room was on a different floor to the rest of our party despite the booking being made several months earlier. One of our party were given a room already occupied by someone! Our room...

This holiday destination is a delight. You are so well looked after, and the staff are extremely helpful. Beautiful pool; a great gymnasium, good food, and views to live for!! These are just some of the pleasures of a visit to Creswick. We overlooked the superb golf course, where people come from far and wide to play. They are catered...

The service by both the major event staff and the front of house staff greatly contributed to the success of this event. Nothing was too much trouble and I have had numerous notifications from people who loved the resort and want me to book it now for our next reunion in 2021.
