“Fantastic Property!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I must say this 2 Bedroom Villa property is a fantastic property and I cant wait to return. Located in a quiet tranquil location. There is also a kiddies club on site for families with young children.

The property contains a fully equiped kitchen with a total of 3 reverse cycle air conditioners (1 downstairs and 2 upstairs in the bedrooms) and a gas fireplace located downstairs. Both bedrooms had their own ensuite bathroom and we loved the open plan full sized baths located within the bedroom (not in the ensuite bathroom) where one could watch TV whilst having a bath. Generous supplies of toileteries were supplied plus dishwashing and washing machine sachets were provided.

There is also a toilet located downstairs in the laundry and the laundry contains a front loader washing machine and a dryer.

Property is well located in between Ballarat and Daylesford and only about a 15-20 minute drive away from each. Both places offer a lot to keep visitors occupied during their stay at this resort. Check Tripadvisor for restaurant listings and things to do in the area.

Creswick only has a small local Shopping Centre perhaps a 2 minute drive away where there is an IGA Store Bakery Pub Takeaway etc. Vehicle is essential for staying at this property.

Sebel Creswick Resort is located beside the Novotel Creswick and the facilities like pool spa restaurant etc are shared. There is a golf course located on the property but Im not a great golf player and havent played for many years. The rear balcony did overlook the golf course whilst the front faced the main road but was some distance away.

The property was very well maintained and I saw no maintenance issues in our villa as mentioned in a previous review except for some scratches on the walls leading up the staircase which I assume is the result of visitors luggage scraping the walls.

The only disappointment I had was that there was no Pay TV just free to air. This is the first Accor Vacation Property I have stayed at where there was no pay TV. Also there is no wifi in the rooms but there is cable internet available in the room. The reception area has free wifi and there are 2 computers one can use free of charge in reception.

Great property and one I will certainly return to.

Reviewed 15 April 2014

We stayed for a weekend. The unit is large and very well appointed. Very easy to cook a full meal with good cooking implements. Large refrigerator and oven etc. The bathrooms were very modern. The complex allows for purchasing breakfast at the Novotel if required. The location is very good and easy to get to Ballarat, Daylesford and Bendigo. Creswick has a number of cafes and restaurants and is only 5 minutes drive away. The hot water was very very slow to heat up - around 4 minutes before the water ran warm and the shower did not have a high pressure. No free wi - fi which is ridiculous these days- we have always had free wi fi at Accor properties overseas. There is also a surcharge for paying by credit card. Again, never had this before.

Room Tip: Even though we were located towards the main road, there was very little noise.

I love this property!! It is a self contained multi storey property that accommodates up to 6 people with 2 bedrooms upstairs both with king beds and spa. The couch folds out to become a double sofa bed. My wife and I have stayed at this property many times as it is such a relaxing place to stay and enjoy the slow pace of the country. It is located near the golf course for those who enjoy playing. Close to Daylesford and Ballarat which has the most amazing pizza, pasta & ribs and a lovely Chinese restaurant. If you haven't experienced this property before do yourself a favour and book in, you will love it!!

Perfect base to explore the Victorian country side. Quality apartments. Good restaurant. Heated pool. Trout fishing nearby. We stayed during the winter school holidays. The gas heater was fantastic. Short drive to Ballarat and Daylsford. Will definitely visit again.

Fantastic units at Sebel, however have to use the novotel pool which was overflowing with kids. We had to ask about using the pool and gym as were not given any information on arrival. Wifi is additional which is so backward. No pay TV. Best service we had was from the guy in the pro shop.

Dear TGJB,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are sorry that you were disappointed with a few aspects of your stay. Unfortunately during school holidays the pool is one of the main attractions for children, especially in the summer heat. We are investigating all current internet providers and we will be implementing improvements wherever we can.
We do hope that these issues did not detract from an otherwise enjoyable holiday.
