Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had an amazing time at Yumeji. Would highly recommend if you want Japanese Ryokan experience :)! We were spoiled by Hideyo and Louise (and a cutie cat) with beautiful breakfast. Would visit again 100%!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights mid week. The decor was outstanding and the breakfast was out of this world. Having been to Japan ourselves a few times for extended periods, our expectations were high and we were not disappointed in the slightest. The hosts were wonderful and accomodating and as a result we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This is the ultimate Japanese getaway without leaving the country. We were greeted with such great hospitality and felt very welcome and were very well looked after. We stayed in the traditional tsuru suite and loved it. The beautiful breakfast was a whole another level of amazing. This will be an unforgettable experience that my partner and I will cherish. We so highly recommend this retreat and hope to return in the future.

The owner couple Louise and Yonezawa san was friendly and welcoming. We stayed for our 1year anniversary and so glad we have chosen a right place. Spa was amazing, nice and warm. Perfect after bushwalking. Had breakfast and dinner. Very traditional Japanese style and loved every bit of it. My partner has never been to Japan but he enjoyed everything about this place. Definitely coming back again.

I spent two nights recently with my mother for a much needed retreat. Louise and Hideyo went over and beyond the call of duty to ensure our stay was a memorable experience. The rooms were well appointed and yes for a while transported us to a make believe trip to Japan. A must try is the wooden bath made from Cypress timber in the Tsuru room. It elevates soaking to another level. The stay includes breakfast and the presentation was a feast for the eyes and every bit as delicious. We also had dinner and it didn't disappoint. Artfully created and presented, wow! If you're a fan of things Japanese or simply want a novel experience, Yumeji is highly recommended. I would go again and bring hubby along the next time. A lot of care and love has been invested by the owners into this accommodation so that every guest goes away feeling pampered and satisfied. I give five stars. Thank you Louise and Hideyo.

Louise & Hideyo are the perfect hosts, we stayed with them for our wedding anniversary. I was excited to find their retreat as we had honeymooned in Tokyo, staying at the Imperial. So our expectation of Japanese service and food was high, but we were not disappointed. Everything was beautifully presented, from the entire property, to each and every detail, the amazing breakfasts, incredible dinner and little touches, like glasses of champagne for our anniversary dinner, gorgeous tableware, Japanese incense and candles and special oil for the traditional soaking tub. The linens and towels, the meticulously tidy room, and Louise and Hideyo’s welcoming, low key but attentive hospitality, they are just beautiful people, who made you feel part of something special. This was a perfect getaway, romantic, classy and inspiring, we stopped at the Asian grocery store on the way home, ready to try out some of the lovely, delicate dishes Hideyo had generously answered each of our questions on. The property is quiet and intimate, we watched classic old movies curled up on the huge lounge in front of the fire, soaked after hiking in the amazing tub, and explored Tamborine, coming “home” knowing there was another exquisite meal waiting either for breakfast or dinner each day. Yumeji is a one of a kind experience, an unbelievably beautiful experience that leaves you with a lasting feeling of joy.

Wow!! What a beautiful retreat. So peaceful & surrounded by nature & birds singing. The hosts Louise & Hideyo where so welcoming & very lovely. We received a lovely small gift when we left. The breakfast was probably the most yummiest I’ve ever had. A combination of Japanese/Australian cuisine. Delicious! Plus the fresh juice & coffee, green tea. Outdoor spa, beautiful gardens, the rooms are beautiful & roomy. We cannot recommend this place enough. Worth a weekend or a few days away. Close to town. Thank you so much. Shelley & Scotty.

Hideyo and Louise were wonderful hosts during our stay at Yumeji. The highlight of each day was the Japanese breakfast with Hideyo describing each of the delicious dishes and advising on how to get the best of the flavours. This was a relaxing start to the day with tranquil music and enough food to keep you going until dinner. Just don’t expect to be rushing out, allow a good hour to enjoy it. The house itself doesn’t look too out of the ordinary from the outside, apart from the beautiful wooden door. Inside, however, it’s stunning. A beautiful mix of contemporary and traditional Japan. The room we had was large and comfortable with a very modern en-suite. We also had access to a very comfortable lounge and a spa pool/hot tub overlooking the spacious garden. Highly recommended as a relaxing base for touring the Tamborine Mountain area.
