Regrettably, we were only able to stay one night. What a great, classic, beautiful Australian hotel.
The room was lovely and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and up to date with lovely amenities.
We had dinner in the restaurant and it was very good. Later made new friends on the verandah upstairs. Everyone was so friendly and fun.
The price was excellent and included wifi and breakfast. Just about the best deal we experienced in our entire 6 weeks in Australia!
But there's more! The proprietor allowed me to use the office phone to call long distance out of country because my bank card had been eaten by an ATM in Healesville. She wanted nothing in exchange for a call that may cost her upwards of $15 I suspect.
I couldn't recommend this place any higher.
A wonderful location surrounded by native birds and kangaroos. My two friends and I spent 2 nights in the Waterfall Cottage and, with the exception of the mattress on the fold out couch, we were extremely comfortable. Nothing quite like sitting on the veranda in the sun with a champagne, watching the roos and listening to the sounds of the Yarra River. Or snuggling up on a cold night on the couch in front of the wood fire heater watching a movie. Can't wait to return.
We stayed for 3 nights in a spa suite in September 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well equipped - free Wi-Fi was a welcome feature! Access to the indoor pool, spa and gym and the on-site restaurant and cellar door are more plusses for this place. From checking in, to room cleaning and checking out we found the hotel staff to be friendly and efficient.
The location, just minutes north of the township of Yarra Glen and surrounded by the wineries of the Yarra Glen, is both scenic and convenient. There's so much to see and do that we didn't use either of the TVs in the room.
Look for any special deals going, it's worth the visit. We'd certainly plan on coming back!
