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.

The rooms are quite comfortable and clean and position is convenient. Price was good but when we wanted to stay another night they doubled the price so we found a better motel at a good price. Overall room was ok but management not too flexible.

We had a great stay at Yarra Valley Motel. It’s a basic motel in a great location, so close to the Yarra Valley and perfect as a guest for nearby weddings. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We were in room 4, so closer to the road and couldn’t hear any road noise. The room had a renovated kitchen and bathroom, comfortable bed and we were able to watch Netflix in bed. Very happy and will return!

We can not recommend this motel for a stay of more than 1 night. We had frequently stayed in the Yarra Valley Motel prior to covid19 and were very satisfied. When we booked we didn't realise the motel was under new management. We booked for 1 week and payed 169 dollars per night. The room service happened once in that week.I requested the bins be emptied daily a d fresh towels daily as the weather was cold and wet and the towels didn't dry.The bins were emptied 3 times and a banana peel removed but bin not emptied on the 4th day.Fresh towels were supplied 3 times.No vacuuming or bed making or linen changes occurred during the week.There was no net curtain over the window so for privacy the blind had to be drawn and light on.There was no drawer storage or bedside lamps. 4 coat hangers were provided in the wardrobe. The bed was comfortable and the reverse cycle air conditioner adequate.The shower and bathroom did not seem to be cleaned but the basin was wiped down 3 times. We were disappointed and do not have the same experience.

Booking a room after staying at a wedding, we didn't think too much given that it's a motel. However, we were pleasantly surprised given the price. Location was good, service was fine and the bathroom had been newly renovated.

We booked this as a last minute night away. The room smelled musty, on further inspection we discovered the shower was full of MOULD. We also found MOUND on the bench under the air conditioning unit. The staff made it very difficult to arrange another room, which was also NOT CLEAN. We decided not to stay, and are still fighting for a refund

We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit for 3 nights. The room was ideal and staff very friendly. The room had all the conveniences needed to make our stay comfortable. The back courtyard was convenient however needs a little TLC but overall we were very happy and woul stay again

We were guests at a wedding in a nearby winery and stayed here one night. We were pleased with our choice. The room was a little worn, but room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Despite being close to the highway, the room was very quiet (I have excellent hearing!). The bed was super comfy and the linens good quality. We slept very well. Wifi worked well. Keep up the good work, Yarra Valley Motel!

Had important family event and needed 1-night stay for 5 people. In hindsight wish booked for 2 motel rooms instead of ground floor 2 BR apartment. Spacious and clean but quite dated and with a weary “old” smell. Little needed fixes added to irritation: bathroom door absent handle (can’t close for privacy), flickering room light globe, broken security door, and stained carpet. Two good accommodation saves: comfortable beds and good water flow in shower. COVID reasons keeping indoor pool shut in December 2021 .. even if double vax, really?! Only 1 night but wouldn’t stay much longer.

We rented 4 rooms to attend a family wedding. We had to change our booking on multiple occasions due to Covid. They couldn't have been more understanding and helpful. The rooms were simple but very clean and convenient. Other family member stayed at more expensive accommodation and wished they had joined us at The Yarra Valley. Thank you.

Had to cancel due to covid govt restrictions. Cancellation was 10 days before the booking. Sent emails and never got a reply. Eventually rang only to be told they wouldn't refund. Have faced similar circumstances in the past with other service providers and they have always refunded. Very poor.
