Great for vacation

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

923julietr Business - 04/06/2017 TripAdvisor review

Great for vacation but not necessarily for a business traveler. I found the one front staff member of the RACV quite condescending and abrupt. I choose then not to eat there and had to go into town for a takeaway

Dear 923julietr, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback of your recent stay. We are so happy to hear you had a great vacation. Please accept our apologies for the poor service provided by RACV team. Your valuable feedback is greatly appreciated and will be shared with Senior Management. We hope you will come back for another visit soon. Kindest Regards, Joanna

U3852QGrichardh Business - 25/11/2016 TripAdvisor review

It appears that this resort is now owned or run by the RACV. It was certainly brought home to me when I go to reception and was basically handed my key and told where my room was and that this is basically all they do now for Accor members. I got the impression that the only Accor accomodation available now are the houses and if you book make sure you avoid villa 11. The road noise is terrible!! I will not be staying there again.

Dear Richard H, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at The Sebel Creswick Forest Resort. I am sincerely sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. It is disappointing to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your stay due to the welcome experience provided by RACV Goldfields and the road noise. Unfortunately some of our apartments are close to the road than others, and if returning in future, would recommend requesting an apartment further from the road if possible. Our friendly team of staff will always do everything they can to try to meet the needs of our guests. Thank you once again for sharing your experience with us, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Kindest Regards, Joanna

Nice house but....

684julienn Family - 29/07/2016 TripAdvisor review

Overall it is a nice place but the kitchen amenities could definetly be better. Pan, and ustensils are a bit old and no minimun such as salt or pepper... If you want to compete with Air BnB you need to step up your game a bit.

Dear 684julienn, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at The Sebel Creswick Forest Resort. We appreciate your honesty and feedback regarding our kitchen amenities. Your comments has been past on to our senior management team for immediate attention. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your experience with us. Kindest Regards Joanna Wong

Melissahep Family - 13/04/2015 TripAdvisor review

My husband and I and our 3 children all stayed in a townhouse.. They were lovely, perfect... heap and heaps of room and everything you need.. the kids loved having a bath and watch ABC for kids in the morning.... what a treat having a bath in your room! I had a little issue with some of the bedding and the staff fixed it straight away and were so apologetic, they were so quick to make sure all was well and they gave us all free drinks too... I WAS SO IMPRESSED .... So well done... ALL the staff were all so helpful. Thankyou for making our holiday extra nice. The buffet breakfast was YUM... the kids all ate free which was such a bonus. Creswick is just out of Ballarat and a quick drive to all the wonderful attractions.. we had a lovely time.. There is heaps of room... we brought all our remote control cars and the kids had alot of space to drive them....We will be coming back and bringing our golf clubs.

Thank you for your fantastic feedback regarding your recent stay at The Sebel Creswick Forest Resort. We really appreciate you provided such a wonderful recommendation of the property. the rooms were originally built for residential living so they are large. In addition we completed a refurbishment in 2012 which has added the luxuries such as the bath in your room. We look forward to you and your family returning to stay with us soon complete with Golf Clubs!

Lovely stay

Rebecca O Friends getaway - 04/12/2014 TripAdvisor review

We stayed after the Miss Muddy event and cannot fault it. The rooms were clean, and very nice and were a reasonable price. Would stay here again. Location is good, was closwe to the course sp not far for us to stumble afterwoods. Considereing going back again to just escape the world for a few nights.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay at the Sebel Creswick Forest Resort. The property was refurbished in 2012 and being apartment style is perfect for a group travelling for the weekend of for longer stays. We would love to have you return to stay with us again soon and hope that you were successful in Miss Muddy Race!

Fantastic

Susan C Family - 30/09/2014 TripAdvisor review

The rooms in the Sebel villa were fantastic! Really warm with reverse cycle heating and a gas log fire- really cosy. There is everything you could want for your stay in the kitchen and laundry and there is even a downstairs toilet. My only negative is that the entry was a bit dirty and run down looking and the gardens around the villa were not well kept with lots of weeds. The location is excellent for exploring Daylesford, Creswick and Ballarat.

Hi Susan C, Thank you for taking the time to post this review after your recent stay at The Sebel Creswick Forest Resort. We are very glad to hear you had such an enjoyable stay. It is a fantastic location, with our apartments nestled perfectly between the nearby tourist attractions the area has to offer. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful, spacious apartments at the resort. They certainly have a very cosy and welcoming feel. It is disappointing the entry and garden areas were not maintained to the usual high standards, and this feedback has been forwarded to management to investigate and rectify. Thank you again for providing your feedback, and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Sebel Creswick Forest Resort in the future.

Fantastic facility and the villa was perfect - self contained and had everything we needed for a great night's stay - wish I could have stayed longer. It was peaceful and great back area to sit and relax.

Dear Brenda B, We are so pleased you enjoyed your overnight stay and found the villa suited all your needs. We would love to welcome you back for a longer stay.

Adam S Family - 19/03/2014 TripAdvisor review

Rooms were great although needing a bit of maintenance. Food offerings were very poor for families. Golf course staff were excellent. Course needs work. Good location but more could be done to be more family friendly

Dear Adam S, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback and post your review on The Sebel Creswick Forest Resort. We will certainly look at your suggestions and hope we can host you and your family again.

Disappointing maintenance of a beautiful facility

Steph859 Family - 08/01/2014 TripAdvisor review

We have stayed at Creswick numerous timeline the past and have always been very pleased. The units are lovely, and the design haas not aged at all. This stay was a little disappointing. The couch was covered in crumbs, and the bedroom clocks were not set. Regardless, we will probably return.

Dear Xstephaniex, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at The Sebel Creswick Forest Resort. It is always lovely to hear from our repeat guests. We are so sorry to read that this time you were a little disappointed with the cleanliness. Your comments have been escalated to the General Manager for immediate attention. Again, we thank you and look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Great weekend away!!!

beaglesonholiday Couples - 07/11/2013 TripAdvisor review

Spent the weekend away for my birthday ... our first weekend off since moving and we really enjoyed the relaxation of both the hotel and the area. Food in restaurant was excellent, general surroundings and ambience fantastic. We had sen other reviews about low water pressure and long wait for hot water but we did not experience this so issue must have been addressed.

Dear beaglesonholiday, Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Forest Resort. Happy Birthday! It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Fantastic getaway

foodie053 Family - 14/08/2013 TripAdvisor review

Stayed for 1 night in fantastic modern, well equipped apartment. Perfect for family of 5. Kids loved the freestanding bath in their room ( with 2 single beds) with lovely views and T.V. Extra child slept on double sofa bed downstairs. Also had extra wc downstairs off laundry which was a bonus. The gaslog fire was very efficient and gave a warm ambience. We were also lucky to be given a late check out. Would highly recommend this to families. A great location with a short drive to Daylesford, Ballarat and Clunes.

Dear foodie053, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Forest Resort in Victoria. We are delighted to read that you and your family enjoyed your stay in these newly refurbished apartments. The freestanding bath certainly is a favourite with guests. Thank you for your recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Perfect Family Getaway

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Suzanne_QVM Family - 04/07/2013 TripAdvisor review

We had a friend staying with us from overseas and therefore with 3 adults and 2 young children having 2 bedrooms plus a fold-out sofa bed was perfect. The apartment itself is very modern with everything needed for an enjoyable (and relaxing) stay especially with the ability to cook your own meals which is very important with children. There were a few minor problems with one of the toilets and the DVD player, but the staff arranged for these to be fixed quite promptly. The location itself is perfect and is roughly equidistant between Daylesford/Hepburn Springs and Ballarat (20 mins in each direction) so made for easy day trips between the two main tourist centres. The only small disappointment was that we were not able to get a receipt when checking out with the staff (at the Novotel reception) indicating that we had to email Accor directly and request the receipt. We did this and it took about 2 days. We will definitely stay here again and will also now consider other Grand Mercure apartments elsewhere in Australia (and possibly overseas).

Dear Suzanne_QVM, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Forest Resort. We are delighted to read that you and your family enjoyed your stay. It is disappointing to learn that you were advised that a receipt could not be issued upon check out. If you could provide us with your reservation details we can investigate this further. Again, we thank you for your review and look forward to welcoming you again soon.

deese_boutsiavaras Family - 28/06/2013 TripAdvisor review

We had a great time. The children enjoyed some basketball, swimming, tennis and even played golf on the putting green. I know that a golf game is 9 or 18 holes, just wondering if you have considered maybe a 3 or 4 hole game, close to the clubhouse for a sniff at how golf works for children? A driving range might also be nice into the future. A very enjoyable weekend.

Dear deese_boutsiavaras, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Forest Resort in Victoria. We are delighted to read that you and the family enjoyed your stay, in particular the outdoor activities. Your suggestion has been passed on to the General Manager for consideration when implementing improvement to the facilities. Again, thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you and your family again in the future.

Pilgrim720 Family - 30/05/2013 TripAdvisor review

Convenient location to explore Daylesford region. Beautiful layout within the villa, with all creature comforts. Enjoyed access to the Novotel's pool/spa. Also food was great at the Restaurant. Reception staff gave only basic assistance without any warmth.

Dear Pilgrim720, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Forest Resort. We are delighted to read that you had a refreshing stay, and that you liked the newly refurbished villa. Your comment regarding the reception staff has been escalated to the General Manager for his immediate attention. Again, we thank you for your review and look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Great Apartments

jeffphillips009 Family - 29/05/2013 TripAdvisor review

My family of 4 including two young girls stayed in the Grand Mecure Apartments for 1 night during a trip that took us from Dayleford to Creswick to Clunes and then Ballarat. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the Grand Mecure apartments. Great heating, kitchen facilities and spacious bedrooms with a big bath in each. Very quiet despite the carpark being full due to conferences at the Novotel resort. We didn't use the Novotel's facilities or the golf course, but as a place to stay while on the road we thought the grand mecure apartments were superb.

Dear jeffphillips009, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Forest Resort. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay in our newly refurbished apartments. Again, we thank you for your review and look forward to welcoming you back again for a longer stay next time.

Great stay for a weekend away

shemming Couples - 10/04/2013 TripAdvisor review

Could not fault the Grand Mercure Forest Resort Apartments. Very private for a weekend getaway and only a short two minute stroll to the main facilities if you feel like dinner, a swim or go out and hit nine holes of golf. Would definately return for another visit.

Dear shemming, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Forest Resort. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in these newly refurbished apartments, and that you made good use of the facilities offered by the Novotel close by. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
