We had an excellent two night stay in a Queen Spa Room.

This was Room 2 and faced away from the main road and had a view onto the lovely well maintained gardens with lots of tree cover. There are also several seating areas in the garden.

The veranda had a seating area and table and chairs and included some sanitiser.(indoors and outdoors)

They practiced safe covid procedures so rooms are not serviced unless requested and offer contact-less check in and check out..

Ralph was quick in our email correspondence and was very helpful in providing a power board as one of the double power points in the kitchenette had only one working and also provided some additional shampoo and body wash.

Room was extremely clean and very functional. Furniture is well placed to maximise space so it felt very roomy.

Bed and pillows were comfortable and kitchenette with a microwave was useful. Corner Spa was also utilised.

I couldnt get Foxtel working and from reading the previous roeviews this was disconnected due to covid and budget which was a shame as we could have utilised this during our stay. '

Town is only a few minutes drive down the road and its a great base for visiting the many wineries in the area.

If looking for a dining venue Innocent Bystander is great and we also enjoyed the visit to the very close Four Pillars Distillery for gin tasting and a beer. Best to pre-book a seating as they are extremely busy.

A really good stay and we would love to return.

Yarra Gables is situated walking distance from Four Pillars Gin which makes it very convenient and stress free if you want to have a few drinks. We (3 adults) stayed in the family room which was spacious, clean and comfortable.

A queen bed is situated in the living room and there is a separate bedroom with 2 single beds. Linen was clean and the bed/pillows was comfortable.

The kitchenette had all your essentials along with some glasses in the fridge so you can enjoy your beverages chilled. There were also 4 chocolate bites from the Yarra Valley chocolaterie which was a nice surprise.

The bathroom again was spacious but we found that the hot water system for our showers seemed to be a bit temperamental. There were plenty of fresh, clean towels for us and even make up wipes.

There is also a beautiful garden with seats and tables so you can enjoy the view.

Ralph was very friendly and welcoming.
We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

Second time staying at Yarra Gables and we cannot recommend highly enough. We were a group of three couples staying in the Villa on NYE.
Clean, extremely well appointed accomodation with immaculate attention to detail; from a coffee machine with flavoured pods, to pristine white linen and towels and well as chocolates and champagne thoughtfully left in the fridge.
Peaceful location, ample parking and easy access to
all Healesville tourist attractions, Yarra valley wineries and a short trip further to Marysville for lovely walks in Badger Weir and Stevenson’s Falls.
Our host, Ralph was very helpful to ensure all our needs were addressed. Would not hesitate to recommend this boutique property and look forward to staying here again.

This was our second stay at Yarra Gables, and we already can't wait to come back. Absolutely lovely service and place, can't fault anything. The staff have gone to a great deal of extra effort to ensure cleanliness and safe arrival/departure practices during the pandemic.
Appreciate their effort and hospitality!
Our go to for Healesville as it is a nice short walk to Four Pillars, wineries and all the restaurants and cafes along the main street. We love the location and the spacious rooms. They are very liveable and feel very much at home during our stays :)

We returned to Yarra Gables after many years since our previous visit. It was as good if not better than before. Our room was spacious, beautifully appointed, clean and with all we required. The kitchenette was well provided with crockery, cutlery, microwave. The surrounds of the rooms include a large lawn garden with childrens' play area and plenty of seats to relax in. The whole site is quiet and private.

We had a very relaxing stay at Yarra Gables, our room was beautiful and quiet. Location was ideal, just a 10min drive from the winery where we had lunch and the owners were really helpful, recommending some great options for dinner / brekky down the road in Healesville. The spa was amazing and Foxtel in the room was a nice surprise, too.

The owners of the Yarra Gables are obviously passionate about their property, and it shows! From their personal text message to inquire about our arrival time to ensure that our check in is a breeze and ensuing that the air conditioning in our room is turned on just prior to our arrival, to their extremely clean property and rooms, this is one amazing property. Linen and towels were of top quality and were fresh, crisp and super clean. Other things I loved about the room included quality toiletries, great water flow in the bathroom, and the fact that it had everything else that I would need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay, including a fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee/tea making faciities etc.

There property also had a large beautiful shady garden, with chairs and benches where guests may chill and enjoy a drink.

This is truly a gem of a hotel and we will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

Ralph and Helen were both friendly and professional, with plenty of COVIDSafe measures in place including outdoor check-in and completely contactless checkout. We arrived on a 30+ degree day and it was lovely to find the air conditioning already running and precooling the villa for us. On request (at the time of booking) they had also arranged a high chair and portacot for our toddler.

The villa itself was attractive and well furnished, with our preschooler describing it as "a beautiful house with a beautiful [dining] table". Despite being on Maroondah Highway, there was no noise from traffic or neighbours. The weather was hot and humid during our stay, but the open-plan living area was well served by a split-system air conditioner. The three bedrooms all had ceiling fans and with the doors open they could be partially cooled by the main split system (but not as much as if the villa had ducted cooling or multiple split systems especially in the master bedroom). The shower pressure was excellent and our children loved the big bath.

We have made Yarra Gables our base when ever travelling to Melbourne for many years, and have enjoyed watching the development of the property over that time. Set in three acres of lush lawns, manicured gardens and mature trees, inhabited by a variety of native birds, the accommodation offered is of an extremely high standard. The rooms are decorated with an interior designers eye, the fittings and fixtures top quality and even the little things such as expensive wine glasses and quality complimentary local chocolates are there to be enjoyed. Cleanliness of the rooms has always been a hallmark of the property and in these COVID times has been taken to new heights. The hosts, Helen and Ralph are warmly welcoming and keen for guests to experience all the property has to offer. And if you do and immerse yourself in the experience, like us you won't want to leave.
