Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges’ Yarra Gables Motel has been selected as part of the 2017 Gold List of Australian Accommodation - find out why!

Situated in the heart of the Yarra Valley is a small historic motel that is quietly winning national awards, Yarra Gables Motel, one of Australia’s highest rated motels, boasts quite the trophy cabinet.

The motel offers spacious, first class suites offering sprawling views, air conditioning for those summer days, premium Foxtel channels, spa facilities, free Wi-Fi for the kids or worker and a decked-out kitchenette so visitors have the option of dining out or staying in. It’s no wonder then that Yarra Gables Motel has been selected as part of the 2017 Gold List of Australian Accommodation through Star Rated Properties.

Yarra Gables Motel (originally known as Marna House) has a rich history. During the 1900’s, Marna House was built and purposed as the original farm homestead in Healesville by James Steel. Over the last 115 years, Marna House has seen many renovations including a guest house, care home for the elderly and, since 2014, an award-winning, luxury motel fondly known as Yarra Gables Motel.

Recently, Yarra Gables Motel achieved a guest rating score of 9.6 out of 10, which put the luxury motel onto the Star Ratings Australia Gold list in not just one, but three categories.

  • Best guest experience across all motels in Victoria (2nd)
  • Best guest experience across all motels in Australia (2nd)
  • Best guest experience in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Region across all accommodation types (4th)

The Gold List is exclusive to Star Rated properties and is for those properties that achieve the highest Travellers' Rating score. By making it to the Gold List, accommodation providers demonstrate a commitment to consistently exceed guests' expectations.
