The hosts are very welcoming. All rooms are excellent in comfort and size. Motel is close to shops, and Yarra Valley. Guest laundry is very useful when staying for several days. We would recommend this motel to anyone wanting to stay in Lilydale.

This accommodation is a modern clean cosy motel set back off the main road, reasonably quiet if you request a room down the back. There's plenty of free car parks in front of the rooms. There is no onsite restaurant but they do offer breakfast to your room, there is cafes & restaurants just a short walk down the road....

We spent 2 nights at the Yarra Valley Motel, Lilydale. We have stayed in over 200 hotels and motels over the last 10 years and the owner Frank would be the most friendly, outgoing and helpful person we have met in that time. He went out of his way to ensure that the wineries we had planned to visit in...

I don't think I've ever focused a hotel review on a shower before, but this thing is awesome! This would be a great hotel even without this awesome shower—comfortable bed, super clean, quality Internet, and more. I'll happily stay here again when visiting Lilydale.

We thought it would be a risk staying at a Motel after a day trip to the Yarra Valley. But we were pleasantly surprised! Very friendly owner welcomed us and the family room we had was very, very clean. Great bathroom and little kitchen. Kids enjoyed the pool and we could walk to the local restaurants.
