“Couldn't have found a better place for our wedding guests to stay!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Rob & Renee, the owners at Vic House are amazing. We booked out 18 of their 20 rooms and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were welcoming from the very beginning and adapted to meet our needs. They hosted a dinner for us the night before our wedding and the food was really impressive! The freshly made breads, risotto and chicken quickly became talking points and breakfast the next morning was just as great. Who would have thought a simple poached egg on toast could taste so good?! The rooms are very spacious, even at the base level and the Windsor and Victoria suite offer a really special and unique feel. We were able to have afternoon drinks in our rooms before visiting the staff at the friendly and intimate bar downstairs.The price is very modest considering the level of service and appointment of the rooms. It is a beautiful Victorian style building perfect for pre wedding photos and ideal for individual or group bookings. Off street parking was easily accessible and the whole venue very neat and tidy. Despite being relatively close to the road, there is very little road noise as the rooms are well insulated - so much so that noone noticed a few rooms kicking on after the wedding! Having said all this, it really is all about the hosts here. Rob, Renee and family are genuinely friendly and accomodating people. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The leather couches in the Windsor suite provide a perfect entertaining area if you are travelling w...

we recently had to stay overnight in eastern Melbourne suburbs and as this premises had been mentioned favourably, we booked for the night.

We found the premises spotlessly clean, very large, well appointed and furnishings including carpets were of high standard.

The off street parking was easily accessed with generous spacing.

The dining room breakfast was to a high standard and the staff attendance excellent.


We will not hesitate to stay there in the future.

For people wanting access to shopping centres and Yarra Valley wineries, this is an ideal accomodation package.

Room Tip: Rooms appeared to be mirror images as is usually the case with motels and front verandas facing Maro...

A lovely olde worlde motor inn not far from the foot of the Dandenong Ranges, and about a fifteen minute drive to Knox and Eastland shopping centres.
Our accommodation spotlessly clean, spacious - a very relaxing stay.
We have stayed here a few times now and intend doing so each time we visit family and friends in the area.

Room Tip: For the elderly, or travellers with heaps of luggage, a room on the ground floor. Easy to get from c...

This place was around half an hour from Melbourne. It was a great little place out of the city, but the owners were the best hosts anyone could of asked for. Meals were fine dinning like you get at a five star resturant. Will return one day with the family and enjoy another one of those 'rib eyes' thanks

Stayed at Victoria House while in Melbourne on business. Rob and Renee were fantastic hosts, the meals were delicious and my room was clean and comfortable. As a woman travelling on my own, I am very security-conscious and had absolutely no issues at all. Road noise was non-existent. Thoroughyl recommend Victoria House and will definitely be back.

Stayed at Victoria House recently catching up with friends who live nearby and to experience the Yarra Valley wine country. The 'Motor Inn' tag is bit of a misnomer in this case, Victoria House is far more like a big B&B. The service from Rob & Renee was outstanding, very warm and welcoming. We were upgraded to the 'Windsor Suite' which was a beautifully furnished, huge well appointed room, antique style furniture and a gigantic spa bath. I can't think of anywhere I'd rather stay when exploring Melbournes outskirts through the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges.

We stayed at Victoria Inn for a wedding at a nearby venue. The hotel welcome was warm and friendly, the wood fire heater was burning giving the reception area a cosy feel. Our room was clean and spacious we only stayed to get dressed, went to the wedding and came back in at midnight. The room had a spaciou s bathroom ( although the shower door opens onto room door, I wonder how many shower doors they have lost over the years). The bedroom section is also quite large and there a couple of steps up to a lounge area with a couple of comfy chairs and coffee table. The lounge area has the bar fridge, coffee/tea making facilities and some wine and tumbler glasses (2 of each). The air conditioner / heater is quite old but warms up the space well. It was really cold outside ( 1 deg C ) overnight so we left the heater on low most of the night, it really dried out the air and made us thirsty. The bed was firm and comfy and we both slept well, I could have done with a bigger pillow, just a personal preference. The traffic noise was hardly noticeable, the room had a balcony that has been enclosed so I think that may have suppressed most of the noise. Overall the place looks a little old and needs a bit of work. The photos paint a better picture than reality. But if you stay I do not think you will be disappointed.
