I only recently declared, 'that I wouldn't ever give a 5 star review to any accommodation, as something can always be improved," but I found nothing that needed improving. A welcoming family and friendly, helpful staff. We arrived late on Wednesday night by public transport, unaware that the restaurant was only open Thursday to Saturday. Staff kindly put together a...

Arrived for mid week visit to the Yarra Valley. Met the delightful owners and they made us feel like welcome friends. While old world in modern hotel standards the complex, set in extensive grounds right beside the Yarra, has been refurbished with reliable and fast free wifi and our room was large, with a lovely verandah porch to sit on...

The location was breathtaking. The property is well maintained and reminded me of the holiday cabins from the movie 'Dirty Dancing'! The owners are very friendly and helpful. The food served at the restaurant was fabulous too!

This is an excellent place to stay if you are riding the Warburton Rail Trail. The beds were super comfortable. Rooms not that big but there are many areas where you can relax & read. The food & service in the restaurant was excellent.

We rode from lilydale to Warburton on the rail trail and loved stepping back in time when we arrived at this beautiful hotel. Loved the river banks during the day and couch by the open fire in the evening. Food and service was amazing

I didn't have any expectations given the Best Western brand conjured up cheap motels of the 80s. I was completely stunned to find a beautiful, grand homestead in a picturesque vista. From the restaurant's large deck, you can stare at the mountains and flowing river and almost imagine yourself at the foot of the Austrian Alps. The accommodation is comfortable...

The hotel is in a lovely situation, but most of the rooms are rather dated and cramped. However the situation of the hotel does in someway make up for this. Breakfasts were good however we were not impressed with the evening meal feeling it was over priced.

The 2 hectare property is lovely with a river (Stream) located at the backlot. Nice to stroll from the restaurant down to the river (Yarra). It is a family-run property and the owners are very kind and accomodating. Ample parking. Our room has 2 single beds and quite small compared with others. Housekeeping is average. Linens are clean and fresh....

I would highly recommend this place for accommodation in Warburton, The staff were superb and couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Lovely surroundings in a good location a few kms from township of Warburton. They had everything you would want for a relaxing weekend. Reading rooms, pool table, great restaurant.

We stayed 2 nights as a large group for a family birthday, we were made so welcome and our weekend was definitely very special. Christine and staff went over and above our expectations, we had some surprise guests for our birthday "girl" and the thought that had gone into making that surprise happen was wonderful. The children (aged between 3...
