Helpful and attentive host who even assisted with my baggage. Great breakfast with prompt, cheerful service. Clean, comfortable rooms with an old fashioned, high ceiling feel. Serene back yard. Great base for wine tours or sight seeing.

We stayed here as part of a group for family reunion. The rooms were well appointed and had everything you would expect for a B&B. Small lounge area where we could suit as a group and chat. Breakfast was simple but all we needed. Close to many restaurants, wineries and attractions.

Booked this for us and our friends as we had a wedding in Yarra Glen. Nice old building, very typical of the area. Room was very old fashioned but very clean. The fold out bed couch was pretty uncomfortable for our friends to sleep on, might be time for an update. Owner was friendly and helpful on check-in, and the...

We've stayed at Melba only one night. We're very welcomed when we arrived in the evening. The room was small, but very comfortable, with an old world decoration, heating, TV and toiletries in the bathroom, which ha da good size and a good shower, although adjusting water temperature was a bit tricky. One thing we didn't like very much is...

It was a clean, comfortable and old worldly place to stay. We enjoyed the large house and pool table room was a great social area to play and have a wine in the cool. We stayed in the cottage so we could put the kids in the lounge area and it was good. It was walking distance to Yarra Glen....

Dave warmly greetly us when we arrived early and had our room ready. He also sorted a wine tour for us quickly. Very conveniently located with cosy rooms for a good price. If you are after warm hospitality in a quiet place then this is the place for you.

Thank you for your feedback. The Queen rooms are a great value option and are not large but most guests find them more than comfortable. We have larger rooms, The Kings and particularly the Penthouse & Cottage offer plenty of space. We are normally contactable all hours by phone if we are not at the Lodge, my apologies for not...
