We stayed at Yarra Gables only one night so that we could combine cross-country skiing at Lake Mountain with a next-day visit to the restaurants, wineries and galleries of the Yarra Valley, and it worked well for that purpose.
It's not absolute budget-price: we paid $155 for a spa-room at school holiday time. However, the room was quite spacious, clean, there is a small kitchenette, the air-conditioning and hot water worked well - and the spa was actually very welcome after a day's skiing. All the rooms are in an attractive garden setting, and the resident proprietors were very cheerful and pleasant. We didn't have the Motel breakfast... too many good dining options in the town.
About the only negative is that the Motel is "just a bit more" than walking distance from the main shops and restaurants (1.5-2Km) especially at night or if it's cold and raining in Healesville, which is quite likely in winter.
Overall, a good, reliable place.More
