“Workshop venue offering Masterchef team building experience”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

This venue had the best staff and service I have experienced. Wonderful woodland location that's great summer or winter. Chef Simon runs a fantastic kitchen and the ran a great team building event with mystery boxes for each team. The dishes were great and shared by everyone. The centre is also good for individuals or couples wanting a retreat from the busy city. About 45minutes from Melbourne and miles away from the hustle and bustle.

I spent 3 days here on a work conference. Great rooms with ensuite and air-conditioning - no tv in rooms but there are in the various communal areas. Very clean and servicing is great. All staff are friendly and hospitable. Food is fantastic - best conference food I've had. Really peaceful surrounds with some lovely walks if you get time. There is an outdoor pool which opens in summer - a bit cold for now. The climbing wall also looks great. Separate wings for various conferences - you have your own space but all congregate in the main dining area for lunch and dinner. A fantastic open fire which we all sat in front after the day and before dinner with some great wine. Free wi-fi in some areas but all rooms have free broadband. All up - great place with lovely hosts.

My second time at the Yarra Valley Conference Centre (for work) and i continue to be impressed.

The chef produced 3 main meals and two 'teas' every day, all tasty, nutritious and varied in style, he happily accommodated various different dietary requirements in our group with either enough variety of choices at the buffet style meals and/or substitutions for particular restrictions (gluten free/dairy free/no pork etc)

Good clean basic rooms, a bit noisy due to the water pumps at times but generally fine. Good extras for a long residential, our groups enjoyed an afternoon swim and spa as well as using the walking trails and the gym, and we all enjoyed the solid selection of local wines from the bar.

Every staff member I encountered was friendly, efficient and helpful: room attendants, kitchen staff, bar staff and management

Highly recommend YVCC as a conference or training venue.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, ask about a room away from the water pumps

Reviewed 7 July 2011

I've stayed twice now at the YVCC and the only regret I've had is that I haven't had my wife or family with me. The accommodation is air conditioned with electric blankets. I haven't needed them yet. Each room has an ensuite. The beds are very comfortable.

Each Cottage has somewhere to make a tea/coffee after hours. The main building houses the bar and common area which has a pool table and a great outdoor deck area. The open fire area is surrounded by leather lounges. The large dining area is also complemented by an outdoor cooking area featuring a wood-fired pizza oven, BBQ and rotisserie.

Simon is the Chef and his meals are to die for considering the quantities he has to produce. A choice of a hot breakfast along with cereal and fruit is followed by freshly baked morning tea, hot lunch choice and salad, another freshly baked afternoon tea and then back again for a two course dinner.

The YVCC is a short trip out of Yarra Glen. The staff are so accommodating and prepared to assist. The owners support a number of worthy charities including an animal refuge onsite elsewhere on the property.

There is no room service that I'm aware of. There is a pool and a gym.

Would recommend it.

Room Tip: Cottage 6 has it's own TV, fire and kitchen.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We're a bit unique at the Yarra Valley Estate because as well as hosting conferences, we are popular with family groups coming away for a few days (family reunions, special birthday celebrations, etc), special interest groups (nature lovers, bush walkers, car enthusiasts etc), and host gorgeous weddings (as we are situated on 120 stunning acres of lawns, bush tracks, towering gums and native bush). We're also unique in that we have our own airstrip - so people can fly in to our property in just 10 minutes from Melbourne. Plus we have our own Wildlife Rescue Sanctuary, Babbajin Park, where rescued animals are brought in by the public, to be rehabilitated - and it's only open (by appointment) to guests staying with us. We are family owned and run and husband and wife team John & Louise Ward go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful stay. They are closely connected with three charitable organisations, which they support financially with profits from Yarra Valley Estate. Please call us with any enquiries - and we look forward to welcoming you soon to stay with us here in the Yarra Valley. ... more   less
