International hotelier brings Oscar’s on the Yarra to Best Western

Best Western has welcomed the distinguished Oscar’s on the Yarra to the group, introducing the rebranded Victorian hotel as Best Western Yarra Valley. Set on 8ha on the Yarra River, the four-star hotel is located in Warburton’s leading wine region, 65km east of Melbourne.

Best Western Yarra Valley is a 22-room boutique hotel recently restored by architect and designer, Jack Fugaro. Built in the 1920s, the property’s period features have been carefully preserved, with chic modern furnishings and vintage chandeliers among the interior highlights used to deliver a truly authentic experience.

Hotel owner Walter Marcheselli has more than 35 years industry experience across hotel operations, food and beverage and regional tourism in the Venetian region. This year he celebrates 25 years owning and operating his first Best Western hotel, Hotel Cristallo in Rovigo, that joined Best Western Italy in 1989.

Mr Marcheselli has served as vice president of Best Western Italy for 12 years. He said Best Western’s global reputation would attract international visitors to the Yarra Valley. “I know the brand very well and it has been my dream to open a hotel in Australia,” he said.

Guests staying at Best Western Yarra Valley can choose between three room types ranging from standard king or twin rooms, to deluxe king or twin rooms and a two bedroom studio apartment, ideal for bridal parties and small groups.
