“Nice Weekend Away from Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

Hidden within Heritage Golf and Country Club in Yarra Valley, it's a perfect place to relax for weekend with family.

We'll be back with our family.

My Husband and I spent a night at the Sebel hotel and we loved it. The service was wonderful and the hotel was beautiful.
We stayed in the spa suite and the room was huge! It was very clean and the view of the beautiful gardens was perfect.
We both cannot wait to go back for a few nights next time- one was not enough!
Highly recommended....

The warm and sincere welcome from Manoj was a precursor to the hospitality that we enjoyed during our stay. Manoj took time to chat with us and went out of his way to register payment for my travel on Citylink. He made reservations for lunch and dinner both at nearby wineries and in the Bella, the in-house restaurant.
There were no conferences hosted during our stay so we had almost the whole place to ourselves!! The rooms and amenities were in clean and in good condition. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows....heavenly!!
The presentation and pricing of the food at the Bella where we had diinner was good. I ordered the angel hair pasta but was served with a languine pasta instead, which the chef tried to pass off as angel hair pasta, not aware that we could tell the difference!!!
The location is good, within 30 minutes easy drive of most of the major wineries and restaurants.
I would definitely return to the Sebel Heritage Yarra Valley.

I stayed at the Sebel Heritage recently where I was presenting at a conference. I found the facilities overall to be excellent, the surroundings very nice and the staff all extremely friendly and helpful.

I had a one bedroom apartment on the third floor. It was great - very clean, well serviced, plenty of room. All windows open to the fresh air and there was a small balcony with french doors - really nice. Bed was super comfy. The apartments have two WCs and a spa bath. In the sitting room area there is a large dining room table as well as couch area. A desk is in the bedroom (if you want cable internet you need to park there).

Because I was with a group for work didn't get to enjoy the facilities but the golf courses look great and the grounds are very pleasant. Room service was great, delivered very quickly. Housekeeping was excellent, room was really well serviced. The staff are incredibly friendly and a credit to the Sebel for such a great team.

Downside is that it's a $100 cab fare from Melb airport if you don't have a car so not really convenient. Note the hotel is at Chirnside Park which I gather from the cabbie is not really Yarra Valley. Sadly as with most places you will be charged (too much) for internet use. A couple of irritating things, like phones and internet cable only in the bedroom when the lovely larger table is a much nicer work environment . But really they are minor issues and the place is great.

A great place to really relax. Enjoyed a nice walk around the grounds, saw heaps of wildlife and enjoyed the fresh air.

Staff were professional and friendly.

The room was good and the facilities were exceptional.

The dining experience was compelling, and the food - delectable.

We spent four nights including Christmas recently and had great fun using the golf course, spa and surrounding restaurants and wineries. All the staff were helpful and pleasant. The golf courses are in immaculate condition and there is plenty to do throughout the Yarra Valley. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed this hotel as part of our trip around the Yarra and Victoria. The weather was not too good but we managed to walk all around the golf course and also got in a game of tennis. We ate in the restaurant and this was lovely as was the breakfast. It was pretty good value for what you got. It is a nice hotel!
