Macedon Ranges Hotel & Spa
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Macedon
Reviewed 29 June 2014

So disappointed - arrive at 4 reception closed - room heated a little - bathroom freezing - no cutlery - no bottle opener - no staff to get you anything - restaurant closed - spa closed - angry staff - room was clean but certainly not the level of luxury we were expecting

We took the weekend off from the children and headed to Mt Macedon for the weekend (Saturday night). We wrongly thought this was an up market spa retreat but it is actually a glorified MOTEL! When we got there we were told that the spa/pool was closed for renovation as was the restaurant. Room is large but basic and wall heating did not work and gas heating made noises. The price is very high for what it is! Lady at reception was helpful and friendly. Overall if you are into Motel's this is probably great but if you are looking for a hotel for some r and r then this is not the place.

Room Tip: we had on level one but not really sure what the difference is as there is not much of a view from o...

Yes, it does need money spent on it and in its present state it is a somewhat forlorn shadow of what would have been an impressive Hotel.

What I liked - the location and view. The view was lovely with an outlook over a pine plantation and Mount Macedon. The room was vast with a prominent spa dominating the room. The gas log fire was a nice touch - especially on the cold nights. The enormous bathroom was hidden from view with the door behind a mirrored door adjacent to the wardrobe. The room had a king bed, flat screen television and split system air conditioner. Restaurant meals were good quality, reasonably priced and a decent portion size. Service was good.

What I didn't like. The room windows were dirty obscuring part of the lovely view. The gardens were somewhat overgrown and the general ambience of the Hotel had a slightly shabby and unloved appearance - surprising for a relatively new establishment.

For the right price I would consider staying again.

Went ahead with the weekend away due to the 100% cancellation fee. Paid $400 per night. 1 toilet roll, empty fly spray can (which would have come in handy due to the plague of garden bugs in the room) and expected more in the fridge other than a very small uht milk (which wasn't replaced the 2nd day), 2 chocolate bars and a bottle of water. Just expected more considering we paid Top Dollar due to the Concert................

When we went to see the place a bout a month or two prior to see if we wanted to choose this location as our honeymoon, we were promised; a renovated room, we were promised room service, we were promised the restaurant to be open and we were promised access to their day spa and pool and we got none of it, to top it off the room comes with a bad air conditioner, a very old tv that freezes or has no reception at times,
The room was nice and in room spa was nice but that's it, would never come again. And all night all I could hear is the traffic from the freeway, not very enjoyable.

as there was nothing to eat on site and nothing to cook anything on we ordered pizza/pasta delivery and upon opening draw for cutlery we found no forks, and a miss matched glass range (sorry but it's not hard to match glasses - me and my husband shared wine and there was no two glasses the same)

Overpriced and over rated. If they had told us the truth prior or gave us a discount it wouldn't be an issue.

Very very dissatisfied

Booked the room from wotif.com that day. Room was lovely and cosy. Very clean room and the spa was great. Would definitely come back again. Sorry for the red hair dye on the pillows! Loved the view from the back.

Like the title says,'served its purpose only'! We were told by the tour operator it was a 4 star property. Maybe it was in its day,but very visible signs of neglection. Property owners are nice but they also look very tired of running accomodation on their own and with skeleton staff. Day spa and pool were not available as advised by owner is under renovations. According to reviews its been under renovation for a very long time,just never to be completed! The children and I were so disappointed they were really looking forward to a swim and I was really looking forward to some 'me' time! To our dismay the restaurant was also run by the owners and a chef aswell! I wonder why they're run down?!?! The owner did call us a few days prior to our arrival to find out whether we were going to have meals at the restaurant so they can keep on the chef for the weekend or else it's not worthwhile keeping the chef on as she told me. Hmmmmm,how fresh would our meals be? It really does make me wonder. Btw,property is not children friendly whatsoever. My kids sat in the spa in our hotel room all weekend,frustrating just to keep them busy! Spa was broken and couldnt drain the water.So overall,the property like I said needs a lot of love!! It needs new energy,young energy and promises that get delivered! Not worth the money and won't be staying here again...........sorry guys!

Room Tip: Always call the property prior to booking to check the facilities are in working condition before yo...
