Warburton Lodge
Ranked #4 of 4 Warburton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 September 2016

I must be a smart alec. I must have a presumptuous attitude. LOL. I thought I knew the state of Victoria real well. Well....I don't!!!! When will I ever learn?? Oh my goodness. We went to a cute little town called Warburton just below Mount Donna Buang. Only stayed one night but whilst there we realised what a fantastic place to go - and so close to Melbourne. Our accommodation was The Warburton Lodge (which incidentally is for genuine sale) and what a delightful clean place to stay! Yes, it's old. Yes, it's basic. But yes, it's quiet. Yes, bed was real comfy. Yes, it had a heater, and electric blankets. Yes, it had the most homely comfortable shared lounge room. Yes, it had the most awesome books! Yes, it had breakfast (really good it is said) although we didn't stay for such. Yes, it is in a delightful leafy quiet area and so close to the shops, cute funky shops. Yes, it's close to the Yarra River and the start of the Warburton to Lilydale Rail Trail. So much to see and do here it is not funny!!! Gotta come back! And where? The Warburton Lodge of course! (P.S. I hope the new owners do not change the originality of this wonderful, charming, warming, comfy place) Check it out.

Room Tip: Room at the front with the balcony was good.

Found the Warburton Lodge to be very welcoming, clean, warm, great breakfast, location ideal. More than happy with our rooms, beds very comfortable. Thanks Baden for your hospitality.
Won these few days on a travel auction. Had always wanted to visit the Yarra Valley. The Warburton Lodge was an ideal base to day trip from.
I personally loved the atmosphere of the Lodge. I didn't go to want to be on WIFI, just wanted a lovely break. I found out that wifi could have been available.
Baden was very welcoming and obliging, even had the heater on for our arrival.

Room Tip: Go expecting a charming place, not modern "dime a dozen" facilities.

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your Warburton experience. June is often seen a a colder time of year to visit the Yarra Valley but I find that each season has its own unique charm. Thanks once again.

A pretty good budget venue just off the main road. Rooms are basic but adequate. WiFi is terrible in the rooms but up at the lounge it is very good. Has a billiard table and other games for guests enjoyment

My favourite Warburton stay. Reasonable prices, old fashioned friendly service, 5 minutes walk from the river, cafes, a great Curry house. It's not modern but has everything we need... and a very obliging host. Thankyou Baden. We'll be coming back.

We have been cycling Lilydale-Warburton for years and the Warburton Lodge has been our place of choice to stay since the start! Clean, old fashioned and homey, the beds are very comfy after a day on the trail. We love the garden for a tranquil afternoon cuppa and the owner is always lovely. Would highly recommend.
