You needn’t worry whether your room at Victoria’s newest boutique hotel has a good view or not. At The Mitchelton Hotel and Spa your designer chambers will look out over either the Goulburn River or the property’s idyllic vineyard.
The new luxury accommodation is part of Mitchelton Winery Estate, a well-known vineyard belonging to Jayco caravan company owner Gerry Ryan. The property is located in the Goulburn Valley, less than two hours out of Melbourne.
In addition to 54 rooms and four suites, the new Hecker Guthrie-designed hotel features a spa and infinity pool. Expect natural stone and timber finishes, which complement several pre-existing Robyn Boyd-designed buildings that date to 1967.
The design has been inspired by Mitchelton’s country location, in particular the horse studs around the Nagambie region in which it’s situated. Specially commissioned photos by Melbourne photographer Trevor Mein and works by artist David Band adorn the walls. Rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, private terraces, tactile grey, timber joinery and Bose sound systems.
The spa also has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
“The hotel and day spa is something that we wanted to develop early on with our acquisition of the estate,” Andrew Ryan said in a statement. “It has always been the missing piece in the puzzle for Mitchelton. Goulburn Valley and Nagambie have so much to offer, we have high hopes that the addition of the accommodation facility will help attract more visitors to the region and boost local tourism.”
Rooms start at $289 a night. The Mitchelton Hotel and Spa opens on December 1.
The Mitchelton Hotel is located at 470 Mitchellstown Road, Nagambie in Victoria.
