, January 2015: Second time I have stayed here. Last time in 2013. Highly recommend and plan to return in 2016. Thanks! 5/5

, January 2013: Could have done with a change of towels after 2 days. Other than that all good. 5/5

, January 2013: Very friendly and helpful staff / security. Will stay there again 5/5

, January 2013: Great stay. Room was very comfortable. Thing to give some thought to would be providing bed side lights / bed side light switches. 5/5

, January 2013: Location was good and surrounding area very good. Service from staff was very good. If you arrive after 5 pm to check-in it could be a bit difficult, particularly if you do not have the security staff phone number. Assumed that there would be cooking facilities in the room but this was not the case. Yarra House is a very interesting heritage building and the stay was good overall. 4/5
