“Don't Stay Here...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2007

If you are looking for somewhere good to stay in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, PLEASE give this place a miss. I found the room dirty. The bed linen was quite obviously not even washed, as when I pulled the bedsheets down to straigten out a lump, I found a pair of mens jocks..ewwww disgusting. I complained to the owners, who I found to be quite aggressive/defensive, which really made for an unpleasant nights stay. I have requested a refund, but am still waiting!!

Yering Gorge Cottages are situated in the Yarra Valley along the banks of the Yarra River at Yering, only an hour's drive from Melbourne CBD and within easy driving distance to a multitude of wineries.

The cottages are fully self-contained with fridge, two hot plates, toaster, dishwasher and microwave. There's also a two-burner gas BBQ on the balcony. Or if you don't feel like cooking, the managers are extremely helpful when it comes to suggestions for local restaurants and cafes.

As part of the tariff you're given generous provisions for a continental breakfast, as well as tea and plunger coffee.

The cottages have wood-burning fires (fire wood supplied) as well as reverse-cycle air conditioning. So you can laze on the couch and look out the front floor to ceiling glass windows at the grassy slope and trees lining the banks of the Yarra River. Alternatively you can sit outdoors on the wide balcony and soak up the view of the surrounding valley and distant mountains.

The spacious separate bedroom has a queen-sized bed and an enormous bathroom with spa bath and separate shower.

The cottages are built with the bedroom and bathroom at the back and the living area along the front so you look out at the beautiful vista rather than at other cottages. They are also built with a bit of distance between them so they feel private.

Yering Gorge Cottages have a couple of freestanding two-bedroom cottages as well as a couple of adjoining ones to combine into a four-bedroom place.

These cottages are a great place for some serious rest and relaxation. Although for the more active, the property has several well marked walks along the river, into the gorge and a circuit up into the scrub on the hill.

Great for wildlife too with the kangaroos coming down to feed at dawn and dusk, and after dark keep watch for wombats.
