Friendly and helpful staff.

Very clean and comfortable room at a very reasonable price.
Our room was quite and spacious. The bed was comfortable and the rooms are "non smoking".

The motel is easy to find and although it doesn't have an attached restaurant, it is close (within walking distance) to good off site restaurants.

Lilydale's wineries are popular wedding venues and the Yarra Valley Motel provides a great base within ten minutes of a couple of them. When I checked in I was asked if I was here for the wedding and was told the bus was leaving at 3.30. Very helpful but turns out that was for another wedding! The motel was very comfortable and the staff helpful. Breakfast is ordered the night before and is delivered to your room and was just right after the night before. Free wifi is always a requirement for someone who works on line and this worked well.

We stayed here 3 nights as we explored the Yarra Valley - and took a flight in the Tiger Moth. The room is spotlessly clean, with quite a large bedroom and bathroom. We also had a small kitchen area with microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. It even included "biscuits" to eat while drinking your coffee. And of course a flat screen TV, air conditioning, Wi Fi, etc. Everything you could want.

Even though it is on the main highway, it extends back and there is no traffic noise. We didn't use the indoor pool, but it is there if you would like to.

The hosts are very hospitable and I know would help with any questions you have about the area. This is a motel, not a high end bed and breakfast, but it is an excellent base (and value) for exploring the Yarra Valley.

We stayed here mid week for one night to attend our sons wedding at Stones a few kilometres away. Our room was fresh, clean and modern and had two beds, a queen and a single. We had our own parking space just outside the room. Amenities were Air Con, a wall mounted flat screen TV with standard channels (7,9,10 etc), micro-wave oven, fridge and mini-bar, tea/coffee making facilities with an ample supply of tea and coffee, iron and ironing-board, cupboard to hang clothing, writing table, dining table for two and complimentary WIFI.
The motel offers a variety of breakfast options from light snacks to full English starting from a few dollars to around twenty dollars which is delivered to your room. They also have a dedicated indoor pool and spa just past the reception area which would be great in the hot weather to cool off. There is a KFC and MacDonalds a short walk away and Coles supermarket just a little further on across the road. The motel is situated on a built up section of the Marrondah Highway which sees a fair amount of traffic during peak hours which can make it a little tricky exiting with a car.
For those wanting to stay a couple of days or more I believe the Yarra Valley Motel would make a great base to explore the Yarra Valley region. Overall a very enjoyable stay with friendly hosts and a place I would highly recommend to fellow travellers.

Stayed two nights to attend our sons wedding. A group of us booked in to queen, twin and triple rooms. All very happy. Excellent base for a visit, clean and well maintained. Hosts advised on transfer for wedding and local restaurants - very happy with referrals:). Rates are very reasonable, despite being on highway there is very little (if not any) road noise at night. Would highly recommend staying here and will be back. McDonalds, KFC, and local shopping centre an easy walk. Thanks again

This is an ideal overnight, or longer stay. The room was spotlessly clean, compact but well laid out, and well furnished with comfortable chairs etc, and a quality bed. Location is ideally located a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk from Lilydale main street. Qiet location although on main Marooondah Highway. Rate very reasonable and a well cooked, ( and huge) breakfast served on time to your room. Easy parking on site.

Room Tip: Book early as this place would be popular
