The Racecourse apartments are perfect for wedding accommodation, and are frequently booked by clients who are attending weddings in the local area as we are very close to all the major wedding venues and wineries.

Extremely uncomfortable

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in apartment 3. Firstly we were told to park in the carport on the left hand side because it is for 2 cars. Two small cars maybe. We had to ask the other people to move over and both cars then had trouble being able to open the doors. The bed was very hard and uncomfortable we left with sore backs. The couch was a 1 1/2 seater and also very uncomfortable. There is a deck to sit on outside the bedroom but the setting was wrought iron with no cushions. Hardly comfortable! Lastly the dining table was actually an occasional table with 2 small tub chairs. It was too low for my 5'3" height so you can imagine the difficulty for my 6'6" partner. Would not recommend this to anyone.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We were in the Yarra Valley for a family wedding. This place was perfect for our needs. It is fresh and clean and has all you need for a comfortable stay. It truly was a home away from home and so much better than a hotel room.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, we went to Yarra Glen for the races and the property was directly opposite the track, was very clean and everything we needed was there for us. The staff were excellent with directions to enter the property. We could not have been happier. Will be definitely coming back for another visit for the races or even a winery tour. Loved the place.
