A wonderful two-night stay! My goal was to cruise the Yarra Valley in a rented convertible Holden Astra and take in the wines, the winery food, and the lovely valley landscape. I booked this hotel because there really isn't much choice, but now that I've beenthere, I would not even look at other choices... and I *will* be back. It's country out there, so don't expect city service... no, this is the real deal: lovely, nice, friendly (not just helpful) people that make you feel like you're with family. The pub is also terrific, and they had a great live accoustic blues singer there on Thursday night. I didn't try the food, but judging by the crowd (and on a Wednesday in this town where do they even COME from??) it is hugely popular. The Room was remodeled victorian with a balcony which is shared by three rooms on the second floor. The bath was modern with no tub. Everything looked nice and well-kept with fresh linens. I accidentally left my Do Not Disturb sign on the door for the first day I was there and they handled that very nicely. There's not a whole lot to do in the town - about two blocks of stores, but there are antiques, a great Tea Store, at least two bakeries for brekkie, and a good convenience store - everything you need. The location is perfect for winery hopping - you are smack dab in the middle of the valley and 5-15 minutes from all the great wineries. Recommendation: lunch antipasto and sparkling wine at Tokar winery... wow. You are also a short drive from Healesville where the animal sanctuary is a must-see (and there is a brewery in town, too!). Note: this listing is the only place I ever saw the word "Quality" in the name - it's just "Yarra Glen Grand Hotel", I'm pretty sure.
