“What a special place”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I made a reservation for five couples at the Chateau Yering last weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday. The entire experience from making the reservation, until the time we checked out was perfect. We stayed in the River Suites which were delightful. The views are stunning, the bed extremely comfortable and the furnishings beautiful. If you are looking for a special place you can't go wrong here. Special thanks to Kathyrn Lowe who was brilliant.

Beautiful property. Staff very friendly, but I agree that seeing the girls having to carry heavy luggage is not a good thing.
The size of the television in the rooms is a joke, they may as well not bother, they are so small.
The lighting is poor also and nearly impossible to read anywhere in the room even in daylight
The food was way overpriced and the night we were there the head chef was not there.
My fish was inedible and very tough. They told my husband his steak was waygu and when challenged, as we could see it was not, owned up to it not being some other cut.
Breakfast was nice.
On check out they wanted to charge us for two 3 course meals when we only had two
The staff throughout were helpful at all times

Room Tip: rooms very clean, large and charming. Lighting poor.

We felt like we'd stepped back in time at Chateau Yering. The old homestead is just a perfect setting for a hotel but I agree with 'siviter' not quite 5 stars. The staff were very friendly, pleasant and helpful and even lugged our suitcase up the stairs for us. Our suite was enormous and so beautifully appointed and decorated in antique furniture. Beautiful, large, marble bathroom with claw-foot bathtub. Huge balcony/verandah with views over to the nearby hills. There are a number of rooms to relax in if you want to leave your very comfortable suite - the library has many comfortable armchairs and sofas to sink into, as does the drawing room which is more bright and colourful and equally comfortable. There is a cocktail bar with seating and of course Eleonore's restaurant which we can't praise enough for its magnificent food and superbly attentive staff. Breakfast in Sweetwater Cafe was nice but supplies were not very well replenished which was disappointing.
We wandered around the garden, which is not very big but very pleasant, but were very disappointed that there was not a single bench or seating of any description anywhere on the grounds to be able to sit under the trees and read or just take in the surroundings.

A beautiful property, the history and grandeur of this hotel is truly amazing. If your after accommodation with old world charm and comfort, it's somewhere you can appreciate 5 star.
Dinner in Eleonore's Restaurant was wonderful and full compliments to the Chef, really enjoyed the excellent menu and great service.
Only downfall of our two night weekend stay was Breakfast in Sweetwater Cafe,which sadly was a disappointment. Not really impressed with poached eggs twice being hard boiled and presentation of meals just plain boring.

Setting out of this world. Room was exquisite however food was just okay and not worth the money. Service was good but the poor girls lugging the luggage was not a good sight or appropriate. Its worth going for a one off experience of what was a 1st class good old fashioned hotel with a touch of class and worthy of four stars not quite 5.

WOW. Thank you to all the staff at Chateau Yering for an incredible night once again. We arrived running late and were immediately shown to our beautiful suite in the Stables. There was a bottle of french champagne waiting on ice for us. We were giving instructions about the room and left to enjoy and unwind . The room was comfortable and had a lovely cosy feel to it. We changed and met friends for dinner. We began with drinks in the drawing room lazing in comfy wing back chairs. We were then shown to our seats. After warm welcomes we were explained our menus for the evening. We had chosen the degustation with drinks to match. SUPERB!! The food is of the highest quality and presentation is immaculate. We ended our meal with cheese and after dinner drinks with the staff to finish an Amazing night. I would highly recommend this restuarant and property to anyone. THANKYOU ALL FOR A WONDERFUL TIME. :)
