Rooms are pretty small and dated. Service is ok but a bit intrusive. Dinner recommendations were very good though. Breakfast was really good and great value. Bed pretty good. WiFi was pretty aweful. To be honest, you pay more than $130 per night here you are probably not getting great value.

Dear VoodooPhoenix, Thank you for taking the time to review our property, we are continually trying to update and modernize the rooms and I'm sorry you were disappointed. I'm glad that you enjoyed your breakfast, and our dinner recommendations. The WiFi can be a problem which we are working on to boost the system; of course if you choose to... More

Accommodating hosts, well appointed rooms and recently renovated bathrooms made for an enjoyable stay. Host rang earlier in the day to confirm check-in time and kindly gave us a room that would accommodate the baby cot we requested. Heater was also put on before we arrived wish was greatly appreciated.

I cannot speak highly enough of the hosts, and housekeeping staff, at this Motel. Hosts very helpful, and friendly. We caught the red eye over from Perth, and arrived at 8.30 am. Front desk suggested we go for a walk, and they would call us as soon as a room was available. 45 minutes later, we were in room number... More

We stayed here 1 night to attend a wedding in Coldstream. Yarra Valley Motel was a convenient 10-15 minutes drive to the wedding, and close to several Yarra Valley wineries and attractions. It was also a convenient 5-10 minute walk to the nearest shops. We stayed in the apartment, which easily fit myself and my husband, my parents, and my... More

Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and comfortable room at a very reasonable price. Our room was quite and spacious. The bed was comfortable and the rooms are "non smoking". The motel is easy to find and although it doesn't have an attached restaurant, it is close (within walking distance) to good off site restaurants.

Lilydale's wineries are popular wedding venues and the Yarra Valley Motel provides a great base within ten minutes of a couple of them. When I checked in I was asked if I was here for the wedding and was told the bus was leaving at 3.30. Very helpful but turns out that was for another wedding! The motel was very... More

We stayed here 3 nights as we explored the Yarra Valley - and took a flight in the Tiger Moth. The room is spotlessly clean, with quite a large bedroom and bathroom. We also had a small kitchen area with microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. It even included "biscuits" to eat while drinking your coffee. And of course a flat... More
