Novotel Forest Resort Creswick is the ultimate out of town Victorian escape with the family. Situated on 150 acres of State Forest and championship golf course, Novotel Forest Resort Creswick is nestled in the heart of the Goldfields, Macedon Ranges and Spa Country with lots of family-friendly attractions to discover.

With a heated pool and spa, gym, tennis court and walking track, spa centre and a swag of things for the kids to do, it's easy to see why the Novotel Forest is the perfect choice for families seeking an adventure on the weekend, mid-week or school holidays.

Our room was really spacious with big comfy beds, neccessities and a portable cot was already set up for our visit. Novotel Forest know what families want that's why you can pre-book Dinner. We ordered an array of pizzas as we'd been out and about exploring all day and wanted the flexibility and having our meal delivered straight to our room was just the option we needed.

Our kids adored the Family and Novotel” Kids Activity Room on ground level. There's just something about someone else's toys! Wii, board games, blocks, books, toys and movies. Good times! Our daughter also loved the free arts and crafts that was on offer in the restaurant.

Taking time out for me is so rare and I highly recommend every Mum make a little time for Spa 407, a boutique health day spa located on the Penthouse level of Novotel Forest Resort. They do everything from massages, facials, body rituals, wraps and pedicures. Bliss!

And after all that touring, golf swinging, spa time and swimming, the hotel's main restaurant, the Harvest 383, is worth a pit stop with the kids. There's oodles of room inside for roaming littlies — and highchairs for when you want them to eat — and their delicious buffet spread offers something for everyone. Kids under 16 eat breakfast for free too. If Mum and Dad are after a drink and nibblies, the Springs Bar and Terrace is the place to take a relaxing break.

Once again, the Novotel Forest Resort Creswick have put together a number of exciting activities to keep your little ones occupied these school holidays.

While the grown-ups enjoy some time 'off' the kids will have plenty to keep them going and be fully entertained from frisbee golf, cupcake decorating, pizza making, arts and crafts and putting lessons on the green.
