We booked an apartment for three nights the weekend before Christmas. When we arrived from Adelaide there was no way I could climb the steep and narrow staircase with a broken leg and crutches. Luckily staff found alternate rooms for the two couples but I was really disappointed. The semi rural location is nice but I found the room was... More

We chose this hotel as it was close to the location of a family wedding at Inglewood Estate just out of Melbourne. Obviously a popular choice as many other family and friends also chose this hotel. We booked a hill view room for our two night stay and enjoyed the spacious comfort of this suite, complete with huge spa bath,... More

The Eltham Gateway has been the best of three accommodations that I have used in the past when visiting from interstate. The room we had was spacious, clean, and had a great shower. Having the bedroom separate from the rest of the room was great as I am a night owl whilst my better half usually retires early. Hence noise... More

We only stayed one night. We found reception staff very friendly and accommodation very clean. We took our own breakfast and made use of the microwave. Two huge queen beds and plenty of room to move around. Stairs were difficult to negotiate with luggage though. I would stay again if I was in the area.

The hotel is pleasant but not without fault. The room was good but as soon as the alarms woke neighboring guests the water noise in showers and toilets was non stop. The walls are thin and others can be heard easily. There is no breakfast except an overpriced basket which sounded lovely but was basic with the fruit being a... More

Upon first arriving, I thought the room looked really nice. Then I sat on the bed - cheap nasty hard matresses. I had a terrible nights sleep and the next night switched the matresses from one queen bed to another in desperation to get a good sleep. I decided to make use of the spa, but it was filthy, as...

Our drive stay was made easy by the northern suburbs location of the Eltham Gateway Hotel. The GPS brought us in on quiet roads and the leafy locale was serene. The room was great and well serviced. Beautiful and friendly staff made us feel at ease. Highly recommended.

Nice 'lil quiet hotel comprising a few separate blocks; some single storey, some 2-storey high. We stayed a night to attend a friend's wedding nearby at the beautiful & scenic Ballara Receptions in early Sep 2014. Eltham Gateway gives you a cosy feeling with trees surrounding the edge of the land - very natural and simple. For a city girl... More

We stayed in Hillview Suite, if you don't mind the stairs, they are great rooms. Staff where lovely, they contacted me as soon as the booking was made to ensure that we knew that the reception wasn't 24 hrs. Had a lovely relaxing stay, great cafes and direct route to Yarra Valley and St Andrews for the markets.

Great hotel, friendly staff, clean and well-appointed rooms, excellent location and very good value for money. I stayed for a month. It is relatively easy to drive into Melbourne and yet you feel as though you are in the countryside. There are lots of great walking and cycling trails in the area, especially on the banks of the Yarra River,... More
