Stayed here on the weekend for a wedding at Tarrawarra Estate and was pleasantly surprised. Lovely cabins set in a beautiful garden overlooking the valley below. Simple but well done accommodation. Great for a getaway base around the yarra valley.

We spent two relaxing nights at Outlook Hill.. good location, excellent views, lovely decor. We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival with the size of the cottage and the deck facing down the Valley; certainly made use of this lovely setting with an afternoon drink watching a magnificent sunset. We found the provisions ample and the furnishings very comfortable. We enjoyed... More

Maybe I had higher expectations but the stay was a very disappointing for us. The negatives are minor but it’s not what I would expect for the price that we had paid. The curtains were mismatched and the place was quite dusty. The remote control for the heater was covered in dust and so was the instruction paper for using... More

When we were looking for a place to stay for just a nice relaxing weekend away, we stumbled across Outlook Hill purely by accident. We had looked at some of the bigger places in the Yarra Valley and they seemed far to commercial and not as private as we had hoped. We booked Outlook hill, knowing that it would be... More

Outlook Hill was quite a surprise to us. We really only went there to be part way to a cycle ride from Marysville, to break the back of the journey from Melbourne. What we got was just so much more than that. The cottages from the outside looked good but not spectacular. Then we settled in and started to appreciate... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in one of these beautiful cottages recently. I could'nt fault our stay and our hosts Peter and Lydia Snow were so warm and friendly. The cottages are some of the best I have stayed in within the Yarra Valley and well priced. The views are worth the room rate alone! Some... More

This is a great place to get away from it all and just relax. The cottage is one of 3 set on a hill with a deck allowing you to enjoy the view of the valley and vinyard with a glass of wine (or 3). A romontic setting with spa, separate bedroom and tasteful decor. We will certainly go back... More

My partner and I felt that the website depicted the cabins in a more glamorous and luxurious way than in reality. My initial impression was that it could have been cleaner; we discovered rodent droppings next to the microwave, and the cabin could have generally done with some extra cleaning. My partner actually saw a rodent in the kitchen during... More

The cottages are peaceful...modern...and we enjoyed our stay. The Yarra Valley is certainly a fantastic place to unwind. We were somewhat disappointed on some things that were advertised as included on their website, only to find they were not there when we checked in. We stayed in the Chocolate Cottage, which according to the website, promised : -Bvlgari toiletries (no)... More

After reading all the reviews on various websites we decided to book outlook hill for 2 nights. Their web site promotes that it is a 5 star retreat and promises fluffy robes, towels and crisp sheets. On the contrary the sheets were not crisp, the towels have not been changed over in possibly years (as they were thin and rough)... More
