Overview – Chateau Yering Hotel
An elegant, historic homestead reborn as sumptuous five-star boutique accommodation, Chateau Yering Hotel is a unique and charming place to commence your Yarra Valley explorations.
The mansion in which Chateau Yering Hotel is located was built in 1854 with hand-made bricks, expensive hardwoods and costly marble. The epicentre of high society, it played host to grand parties attended by many Melbourne socialites. Although some modern updates were made over the decades, much of the original house survives, with the Library, Chinese Room and Lounge substantially unchanged since their construction. Handsome paintings, ornate old-fashioned light fittings and period furniture were also added to the interiors to maintain the property’s romantic old-world character.
There are 32 suites at Chateau Yering Hotel, all spacious and elegantly furnished with plush fabrics and antiques. Named for their outlook or location, the suites are completely individual in decoration; some feature lovely four-poster beds, while others have wrought iron open fireplaces or a claw-footed bath. All enjoy the luxury of a private ensuite bathroom, as well as a balcony or veranda with views over the 250 beautifully landscaped acres that encircle the building. There is an outdoor swimming pool on the grounds, as well as a tennis court, croquet lawn and petanque terrain. Indoors, you’ll find cosy guest lounges with log fires, plenty of reading material and board games, as well as a Beauty Room, where a range of massages and facials are available.
The award-winning Eleonore’s Restaurant is a fine dining dinner-only establishment that showcases the Yarra Valley’s best seasonal produce, while the Sweetwater Café provides breakfast each morning and traditional high tea on Sundays, comprised of delicate sandwiches, savouries, cakes and scones served with tea, coffee or a glass of sparkling wine. There are plenty of wineries at your doorstep, as well as popular attractions such as the educational Healesville Sanctuary, the heritage Puffing Billy Railway and the peaceful bush trails of the Dandenong Ranges.

The Yarra Valley is comprised of multiple rural settlements. Yarra Glen is the closest town to Chateau Yering Hotel, approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes by road from Melbourne CBD. The property is around 1km south of Yarra Glen.
The Mornington Peninsula is another well-known Victorian wine region located around 90km to the south. In contrast to the Yarra Valley, the peninsula is generally flat with some 190km of glorious coastline and hills mostly towards its centre. Two great accommodation options in the area include sumptuous, self-catering Tussie Mussie Vineyard Retreat and the elegant Woodman Estate.
