We arrived during the evening (but it was already quite dark and cold). Our room was cosy, extremely clean and very welcoming with the heater already on for us when we arrived and the electric blankets were very much appreciated. The owners couldn't have done more to make our stay comfortable. If ever we're back this way or I know... More

Stayed in a large family room away from the street so was nice and quiet. Extra pillows in the cupboard were good as we had different preferences for pillow hardness/softness. The small kitchenette in room was good as it allowed for breakfast preparation.

Lobbed at this Motel as it was getting late. Clean, well located near Coles and take away restaurants. Quiet if you get a room away from the road. Single room was the price of most double rooms and no breakfast with the price, a bit pricey for a basic Motel.

Hi Beenthere 088, Thank you for your feedback, I sorry we didn't exceed your expectations, and that you felt the room was over priced. Our pricing is the same for a double or single rooms, we only charge extra for a third person in the room. We continue to try to value add and improve our property, so your comments... More

Knowing I would arrive after the reception closed (9pm, as detailed in the booking confirmation), I called ahead to advise. The gentleman assured this would be no problem, advised me which room I would be in and that the heater would be on. True to his word, on arrival just after 10pm room 7 was lit up, key inside and...

The room was nice and tidy, the heating unit worked well, the staff were friendly and accommodating, the bed was comfortable. I did notice the pillow was a little solid and high which affected my sleep a little, but I was still somewhat comfortable and would definitely stay again (I may bring my own pillow though! :)

Stayed overnight at the Yarra Valley Motel as we attended a wedding in the area. I found the Reception Gentleman very welcoming and interested in our booking and stay. Room was very well appointed, very clean with a very comfortable bed and a lovely soft blanket instead of a heavy doona. Bathroom was also very clean and well appointed with... More

The Yarra Valley Motel is comfortable and has the essentials for business trips - good wifi, breakfast, clean and spacious rooms and located close to shops in town. The owners add the touch of warmth!

The Yarra Valley Motel would have to be the best motel I have ever stayed at. The rooms are of great size and feel very home like. The breakfast is scrumptious with such a large variety to choose from. The owners of the motel are absolutely the most friendliest, down to earth people I have ever encountered, if you do... More

For spending a lovely comfortable pleasant night at the bottom of the Dandenong Ranges..this is the place to stay...just leave my room free.! The hospitality is by people who understand what travellers need. And on Friday night it was a most welcome place to stay... as it has been over several years a consistent standard of excellence
