Extremely friendly owner Ralph couldn't do enough for us. Took our family photo too. Rooms were spotless and roomy. The gardens were beautiful and peaceful. Front room did hear a little road noise but road was quiet at night.

Hi Cath Thanks for your lovely review. You have summed up Yarra Gables very well. Some people are concerned about the noise because our address is "highway", but most people agree with you that it is pretty quiet at night. Ralph

It is a very lovely accommodation. The owner was very friendly and recommended us a few good places to go. The room was okay, They only had one air conditioner, so it was really cold at night and we had to depend on one air conditioner and the bed heater... Overall, it is definitely a great accommodation to consider.

We are looking at options for heating/cooling the second bedrooms in the family rooms. Thank you for taking the time to post a review, your...

We have stayed before and we keep coming back. The owners are very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, where to dine, where to wine and what to see. The owners are very friendly, very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The beds a very comfortable. We'll be back again for the 20th anniversary.

It had been a while since we last visited Yarra Gables. Having been impressed before there is always the fear that standards may have dropped and disappointment awaits. However, this was not to be and further enhancements were evident to add to the holiday experience, including mugs in the crockery cupboard! The gardens are maturing nicely and provide a haven...
