“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Donia, the owner, is soooooo warm and friendly and couldn't be more helpful. I stayed there as I had a wedding at Stones which is only 15 minutes away. The B&B is quiet, spotless, spacious (with a gorgeous dining room where you can listen to music and watch movies if you wish) and has car parking and aircon. I've been brought up in the hotel industry living in hotels with my family, and the service is as good as we provided, which is extremely rare these days.

Best of all (apart from lovely Donia and Ozzie - who make a superb brekkie) is the location. It's a 30 second walk to the main street which has some great boutiques. The Healesville hotel has a 1 (or 2?) hat restaurant and the food is some of the best i've ever had.

I couldn't recommend The Tuck Inn more highly. Also close to the wineries. Bliss!

Thanks guys!

My husband and I stayed two nights at Tuck Inn. We've stayed at many B&Bs across the world and this ranks as one of our favourites. Awesome location, just around the corner from the shops and restaurants. The room was spacious, quiet and spotless. The hot breakfast was delicious - including the lattes, which you don't normally get at a B&B. But the best part of our experience was the host, Donia. Her warm personality and desire to help truly made our stay wonderful. She gave us suggestions for wineries and restaurants and even helped us plan our driving route on the Great Ocean Road. Yarra Valley is beautiful and I highly recommend staying here!

Dear “Adiachok”,

I’m not quite sure what to say – except thank you so much! I loved loved loved our time together and more than happy to share any delightful experiences Ozzie and I have had (Yarra Valley or further afield) since arriving down under 8 years ago! Life is for living and ‘adventuring” I believe, so more than happy to share.

Until we meet again (hopefully)…

Kind Regards,
Donia and Ozzie (us “tuckeroos”)…

The owners were very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and tidy. Brekkie was included and it was delicious! Close to all the wine yards and to shops, restaurants and cafés. We didn't want to leave and will definitely come back here next time we visit Yarra Valley!

I stayed with my wife one night at Tuck Inn, when we were visiting Yarra Valley a month ago. Everything was perfect, it has a lovely interior and everything is really clean. The location is also a plus. Donia and Ozzie were incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing and Donia showed us a lot of hidden gems in the area. We will definitely visit again!

Dear “upshala”,

A massive thank you for this review. Ozzie and I have fallen head over heels in love with the Yarra Valley and are more than happy anytime to share with our guests the little nooks and crannies that lie within this gorgeous area. Thank you too for your kind words…. So glad all our “elbow grease” (mind you it is a job I don’t enjoy) seems to be paying off….

Until our paths cross in the near future…

Sadly we only stayed one night but would head back in a flash! It is a lovely b&b in a great location - close to many of the wineries and also in walking distance to some great restaurants. I would definitely recommend!

Our four night stay to attend our son's wedding in the Yarra Valley was a truly memorable experience due to the amazing hospitality provided by Donia and Ozzie. Their helpfulness and friendliness were exceptional and all the added little touches to make us feel at home were overwhelming. It is certainly value for money and the rooms are very clean, comfortable and have a feeling of luxury. Highly recommended.
