The Yarra Gables has had our business each time we have visited the valley. It is located on the way into Healesville from Melbourne and offers better than average motel style accommodation. The owners have always been most welcoming and each time have acceded to our request for the same unit (#1) which is at ground level and has access and facilities for the disabled.
The unit is extra large and has two double beds, a lounge and a wheel chair accessible bathroom. It has split reverse cycle airconditioning and electric blankets. The bathroom has overhead heating also.
The kitchen has the usual fridge and tea/coffee making facilities but it also has a sink, toaster and microwave so self catering is possible.
Price for the unit : $120 per night is right for the quality of accom. We will return next visit to the Yarra Valley.
This didn't look like much on the website..and we were pleasantly surprised. Kate, who owns and runs the place...was an excellent hostess. She's on a biodynaminic vineyard with a speciality of pinot.
The accomodation had a massive kitchen...overlooking the family room with an open log fireplace and patio. A big spa tub and a nice queen sized bed ...it was perfect. She also provides a banquet breakfast which included eggs, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, yogurt, juice, milk, granola...plunger coffee and french croissants! unbelievable!
The price was definitely reasonable...and she was conveniently located close to the vineyards...
Bill & I prefer to do self accomodation so we can drink and eat without driving... We picked up fresh pasta, wine from the cellar doors and fresh vegies around town...so it was perfect.
I think there are quite a few places to stay around there...but this one is reasonably priced...and quite cosy.
This is a great place for lunch and dinner...but also a great place to stay. Their accomodations range from $200AUD a nite to $350 a nite...and well worth the money. They do book out fast...so plan well in advance!
This is a newer, sophisticated styled resort. They have spa packages available. It's not big, hotel chain type of resort...it's quiet, quaint..and a great place to see the rest of the valley.
As our stay in our room would only be a few hours, we just wanted somewhere cheap and central, and the Terminus fitted our requirements.
Apart from accommodation available upstairs in the Grand Hotel, it appears to be the only real budget accommodation in town now, apart from tent sites at one of the caravan parks, and some of those now require a minimum of 2 nights stay.
We paid $73 double and our room was quiet, comfortable, separated from the rest of the hotel by a driveway and a little bit of space, and we had our own small walled in courtyard. Facilities were clean, towels & soap etc provided as per usual.
Within easy walking distance to the main street if you didn't want to eat in the hotel restaurant.
We even had a couple of nesting plover birds almost right outside, in the car park (the silly birds always nest on the ground, though they are flyers) which I enjoyed.
