Good locationPosted Oct 22, 2014
Room very small. Mattress very hard and pillows poor. Need replacing. Able to hear conversation from other rooms through the walls. New owners recently . There is a lot of work needed in gardens so maybe I time the standard will rise. Not worth the nightly rate charged. Could do better for the cost. Cooked breakfast well done.

Nice little lodge, we arrive quite late. The place is very homely and well kept by a lovely old couple. Don't expect fast service, life there is suppose to be slow. Enjoy their home cook breakfast. Unfortunately we only stay1 night, well visit again if I got the chance next time

Nice place for short stays.Posted Aug 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
There were many things about Melba Lodge that my wife and I liked. Clean rooms, terrific breakfast, welcoming and obliging hosts, free parking and a good location for daily excursions throughout the Yarra Valley. I believe that Melba Lodge represents good value for money. The furniture was a little old-fashioned for my liking but that is appealing to many so it can't be considered a negative. The only issue for me was the lack of a reliable taxi service in the local area which is of course beyond the control of the hosts. To venture out for meals in the evening required a car and a driver who was prepared to refrain rom enjoying the beautiful wines on offer in this region. The town centre was only a ten minute walk away but on cold, wet nights such as the ones we experienced walking is not an option. This is a nice place that I would recommend to anyone wanting a short break in the Yarra Valley region.

Fantastic Service, hard bedsPosted Jun 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
Melba Lodge is a beautiful BnB to stay in the Yarra Valley, hospitality was great, breakfast was beautiful. Only negative comment would be the bed had a really hard mattress, made my sleep uncomfortable.

Great location for all the scenic routes in the area. The welcome, food, bed, hot water, tea and coffee facilities were all first class. Would definitely stay there again. Breakfast was out of this world compared with other friends who stayed in the same area and paid more ,or in a couple of cases the same, and didn't have the luxury of a cooked breakfast. Thanks Melba Lodge

David and Helen are marvellous hosts and very accommodating. We had a wonderful 3 night stay in a small/queen room, which was perfectly clean and comfortable. The breakfast was simply delicious. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.
