My partner and I had our wedding here mid March 2015. I initially fell in love with the look of the beautiful property and from our initial contact and site visit right up until the morning after the wedding Louise and Jess did a fantastic job. My many emails and queries were answered promptly and our requests were accommodated. We... More

We stayed overnight for an end of year party. The room we stayed in was not that big but just the right size for an overnight stay. There is a common area where colleagues can laze around and have a bit of chat. The main hall where we had dinner was able to accommodate close to a 100 people. Food... More

The Board of Directors of the Kinglake Ranges Foundation held a most enjoyable function at the Yarra Valley Conference Centre earlier in the year. Over a three course dinner with local wines we were able to conduct our business and enjoy a very pleasant evening. The setting was private, the food was absolutely exceptional, together with local wines. I am... More

Came for a wedding; and it's pretty darn average. We thought it was cheap per room per night when we received the invite; after having stayed in nothing better than really a glorified backpackers i can't say I think that now. Shower curtains that barely cover a third of the shower so the bathroom is flooded; bathroom sliding door doesn't... More

We were comfortable in a 3 bedroom cottage with 2 bathrooms though we were expecting ensuites from the description by the conference organisers. The small touches were appreciated eg fruit on the table in the small kitchen and tea and coffee making facilities though no milk... More

I attended The Craft Sessions weekend, both in October 2013, and just this last weekend, September 2014. The photos I've attached are from the 2013 trip. I really enjoyed this venue. The service is superb, that kind where everything you want or need is catered for, and nothing is too much to ask for. Our meals were delicious, with extra... More

The topography was lovely however, room very expensive for the amenities offered. No TV or Fridge in room. Very basic toiletries ( tiny soap, shampoo & conditioner) No hair dryer. Only one chair in the room. The evening meals were quite nice, average buffet breakfast.

We are delighted that you describe the topography as lovely; 46% of our conferences are repeat guests due to our stunning location on 120 acres of beautiful countryside. As we are a conference venue not a hotel, we designed and furnished... More

We recently held our six monthly company conference here over 2 days and 3 nights with around 25 people. YVCC is a short drive from Yarra Glen and is a bit hard to find at night so make sure you have your GPS set for the exact address (2164 Melba Hwy). YVCC is about 90 minutes from the Melbourne CBD...

I stayed at the center for several residentials for a conference. The venue was beautiful and it was so relaxing driving into the beautiful Yarra Valley. The food that chef Simon prepares is to die for and was a highlight of each visit.
