Yarra Gables is much more than a motel. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, with attention to every detail that makes it a home away from home. In addition, the beautiful grounds and gardens provide lots of space where one can enjoy a picnic on the lawn with friends, or where the kids can kick a football around. The... More

What a beautiful place. Everything we needed. Spotlessly clean. Fantastic bed, slept like a baby! Very friendly owners. The owners are doing a lot of work in the grounds and it will look fabulous when it is all completed. Not a thing to complain about.

This is a well maintained motel. Ralph is friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions. The room is clean. The heating is only in the lounge room which is also where the double bed is. There is no heating in the kid's bedroom so you need the electric blanket.

Beautifully presented property, photos don't do it justice. Absolutely everything has been thought of that you need and quality not spared. Also great location to main street of Healesville to get get a yummy dinner.

Yarra Gables provided perfect accommodation at a reasonable price. Ralph was extremely friendly and helpful both at the booking stage and on our arrival. As we were attending a lunch at a nearby winery we asked if we could drop our baggage off at 11.30am. Not only was this request granted but our room was also ready when we arrived,... More

Stayed one night on a work trip. Convenient check in with good advice on local food options. Room was clean and neat, extremely spacious and very quiet. Bathroom is perhaps getting a touch old, but there is a spa and is was spotless. Great place to stay.

We stayed in the room adjoining the main property, and found it to be delightful. Really comfortable bed, and maintained to very high standards. Breakfast was not included, and although you can order a continental breakfast, with so many great options in Healesville, we thoroughly enjoyed being able to rise at our leisure. The only downside is that being on... More

We stayed for 2 nights in one of the front rooms. The room was huge, well appointed with little extras here and there and the gardens are beautiful. Very clean and close enough to walk to Healesville to visit the restaurants for dinner each night. Just be mindful that it is on the highway so can be a little noisy... More

Hi We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated the gardens. And thank you for taking the time to post a review. The noise from the highway seems to be a very subjective thing.

Had an absolutely wonderful stay at Yarra Gables. Ralph and Helen made us feel like part of the family. Will definitely be back! Stayed in a family suite. Great service, perfect location and beautiful grounds. The weather was beautiful this time of the year and the rooms were well fitted out for the cold.
