Stayed here on Saturday night, found it very professional and pleasant, all staff were very accommodating and helpful. Room clean and spacious. Love the walking tracks spotting kangaroos. Breakfast was fantastic.

An all round excellent experience. Tranquil surroundings, great gym and pool, excellent food at bella restaurant and a breakfast beyond all expectations, a great weekend getaway. Will definitely return.

After a hectic week this was a wonderful calm and peaceful weekend - kangaroos everywhere, lots of bird life, peace and quiet, wonderful genuinely caring staff at the hotel, immaculately clean rooms and a fabulous buffet breakfast. The hotel has access to an indoor heated pool, gym and sauna (very clean and modern) a few steps outside the hotel and... More

The Lodge isn’t far from the CBD, pleasant drive and close to Wineries. On arrival you would think that you’re miles away, the property is quote clean, friendly and helpful staff. The room is average size with small balcony, the only drawback is the small shower room. Fortunately the hotel restaurant was fully booked for weeding but had the chance... More

Without a doubt the location, nestled into the hills of Yarra Valley, with waterways, hills, incredibly beautiful walks and local wineries makes this hotel the best outside Melbourne. Equally inside the rooms are generous with magnificent bathrooms. With all these superlatives how can food served at Bella and the Lodge within, be so poor. I have dined in both recently... More

I stayed overnight with my children for one night and the room was fine but needs a refurbishment as the curtains and carpet looked old and worn. Having said that the room was clean and comfortable and very quiet. The lodge itself has a tennis court and swimming pool which we used and the pool was very clean and heated... More

We have stayed here for couple of nights. Our king room on the third floor was large and bright, good size bathroom with a bath and separate shower. Plenty of towels and small luxuries as shampoo, soap, conditioner, cotton wool, etc.. Corner room (316) was nice and bathroom has nice big window which was a bonus. King bed was very... More

After a great experience here over 10 years ago I was looking forward to coming back, the location, facilities, use of local produce and friendly staff were great. But I think some polish and updating would go a long way. Staff were friendly but often not overly knowledgeable, retreat access from hotel slightly confusing and unclear, food menus lacking options... More

We went down to the Yarra for a Winery Tour & decided to stay the night at the Lodge. We stayed in the King Room which was very clean, neat & comfortable. Whilst the Lodge was heavily booked, you wouldn't have known it as it was very quiet & peaceful for the most part. We'd had a big day of... More
