The Gatehouse at Villa Raedward
Ranked #1 of 2 Yering B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We had a great weekend here. The breakfast hamper was refreshed each day and we started off our days well fed and ready to explore the vineyards just a few hundred meters away

We would definitely stay here again

The villa was in a great location nearby a bunch of vineyards in Yarra Valley and only 45 mins from Melbourne.

The owner took great care of us with suggestions on vineyards, restaurants and the best bits of Yarra while also stocking the fridge each day with different brekkie options from bacon and sausages through to muffins and pastries. Very friendly but not intruding.

The villa itself is very spacious and clean with lovely views across what I guess they are trying to turn into a Tuscan-esque garden. Would definitely recommend for anyone going for a weekend to Yarra Valley to explore the wine. Just down the road you'll find Yering Station and Domaine Chandon.

Thank you for your very complimentary review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay enough to share your experience with others. We love the Yarra Valley and feel very privileged to be able to share our knowledge of it with guests. After all, they're here to experience and enjoy it as much as possible so anything we can do to assist, we will. We joke that nobody leaves The Gatehouse hungry as we like to give guests a good variety and wide choice of plentiful breakfast options. We are pleased we succeeded. The Villa is the main house where we live and The Gatehouse is quite separate and screened from the house so guests can enjoy the peace and privacy of their suite and the views out through the garden.

My partner and I had a lovely long weekend here a few weeks ago. Everything was perfect, from the rooms & delicious breakfasts, to the service and the location. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and come back anytime. Thank you :)

We stayed at the gatehouse for a special weekend away with my new husband. This place was so perfect. The spa was wonderful, the breakfast provisions amazing. Everything we could want was there. It is Ina perfect location, right in between all the wineries and with yarra valley dairy just down the road. I love that the villa was nice and secluded and you didn't have to worry about any other guests. We had people staying next door on our last night but never heard a peep from them.
Yes you can hear the noise from the highway, which can spoil the tranquility of the place a little but at the end if the day we didn't mind. I definately recommend staying here

I'm currently sitting in the Melba suite writing this review, I didn't want to wait to get home to Melbourne to share yarra valleys best kept secret. As some one who has worked in the hospitality industry all my life, I was very impressed with the level of hospitality afforded to us by John, the owner, who made us feel very very welcome and comfortable from the moment we drove down the beautifully cared for and landscaped garden. The suite it's self is absolutely perfect for that getaway we all need every now and again. From the moment you walk in you can see that the suites are quiet new, clean and supplied with everything you could possibly need. Beautiful el fresco area accompanies the 2 suites, which make an ideal setting for a glass or two of wine whilst taking in the scenery of the yarra valley. As someone who consistently relies on reviews for restaurants and hotels to visit I felt obligated to let everyone know about The Gatehouse. Please people do yourself a favour, if visiting yarra valley make sure your accomadation is here. This is the first review I have ever written and there is a reason for that. To John and your wife keep up the great work.

We were in the area for a friends wedding and my fiance was forward thinking enough to book the accommodation months in advance. From the moment we arrived and the friendly greeting by the owner John to the moment we checked out the experience was exactly what we needed. With an 8 month old son left behind with his Nanna this was our first night away together without him since his birth. The combination of the utterly tranquil environment framed by an expanse of glass, a relaxing spa bath, a welcome nights sleep and a leisurely breakfast all went towards our departing with wide smiles on our faces. We will be back at some point in the future. Thanks for a great stay.

Stayed here after a day touring the wineries of the Yarra Valley. We stayed in the Melba suite and it was fantastic. An absolute standout was the design of the two suites and the abundance of natural light that fills the room. Extremely relaxing and very quiet with a beautiful view of the amazing manicured grounds. The food, sparkling wine and all the little extras such as heated towel rails, books, dvd's etc are outstanding. One day here is definitely not long enough!
The Gatehouse is very close to the Coldstream Brewery which was a fantastic place for a beer and cider.
Highly recommend The Gatehouse

Dear Stoney10, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review of The Gatehouse. We are glad that you found your suite and the garden so fantastic. We try to make The Gatehouse the sort of place we'd really like to stay in when we take a break: a place to relax, be comfortable and with lots of nice things to enjoy such as the food and wine, the garden and views and the books, magazines and DVD's; a place providing a great base from which to explore the Yarra Valley's many lovely wineries, restaurants, cafes and other attractions as well as activities such as hot air ballooning. We are glad our expectations of a place to stay met yours and hope to see you back soon.
