Just one and a half hour’s drive from Melbourne in the small township of Yea. In our historic hotel you will find one of the best restaurants in country Victoria and superior accommodation.
Situated directly opposite the old Yea Railway Station and the Great Victorian Rail Trail you will find our beautiful historic hotel which is older than the railway line itself.
If you're looking for an authentic country escape, head for the hills of Yea nestled in a valley just 20 minutes drive from the wineries and tourist attractions of the Yarra Valley.
The Yea Peppercorn Hotel, built in the 1860's, is a treasure trove of original features which give the hotel the ambience and warmth of a bygone era. When you step into our renowned Kelly Dining room and soak up the rustic warmth of the wood fire, exposed original brick walls and giant wooden beams from historic nearby bridges you will immediately shake off the stress and strain of city life and relax into Peppercorn mode.
Fabulous food is one thing but it requires equivalent skills in service. No snooty superior waiters serve in our dining room, only the people who own the business, passionate about service, eager to please and dedicated to making your stay in our restaurant and accommodation a memorable experience which gives you a slice of country tradition.
Our accommodation in the hotel will give you an instant welcome with modern ensuite bathrooms, spacious rooms, imaginative décor and a wonderful old-style verandah for the exclusive use of staying guests. For those who wish for more private accommodation we also have one, 2-bedroom apartment a short stroll from the Peppercorn.
