Royal Mail Hotel
Renowned for its highly-awarded restaurants, the Royal Mail Hotel is a true destination-dining experience. On the edge of the Grampians wilderness and only a stone’s throw from the Great Ocean Road, it is also so much more!
Located at the southern tip of the spectacular Gariwerd (Grampians National Park), 3 hours west of Melbourne and 1 hour off the Great Ocean Road, the Royal Mail Hotel is a destination that celebrates fine food and spectacular nature.
The Royal Mail Hotel offers a range of accommodation in the town of Dunkeld from contemporary Mountain View Rooms to one- and two-bedroom apartments as well as the bluestone Mt Sturgeon cottages, Mulberry House and spacious Mt Sturgeon homestead nearby.
Surrounded by native gardens, the Royal Mail Hotel’s seventeen architecturally designed Mountain View Rooms are decorated with local timbers and floor-to-ceiling windows look out towards the imposing Mt Sturgeon. Thoughtful little room touches like backpacks and binoculars invite guests to get out and explore the surrounding wilderness with a range of scenic hikes to suit all levels of fitness and enthusiasm. And after venturing out, the private balconies are the perfect place to unwind listening to the local birdsong. Alternatively, guests can take a dip in the refreshing saltwater pool.
A true destination dining experience the Royal Mail Hotel offers two fabulous on-site restaurants: the highly-awarded Wickens at Royal Mail Hotel degustation dining experience and the more casual and family-friendly Parker Street Project next door
Don't miss the opportunity to descend into the cavernous 30,000-bottle wine cellar with the Royal Mail Hotel’s sommelier for an interactive introduction to an impressive collection of celebrated local and international wines and rare finds; or wander in the property’s kitchen garden with the chefs to enjoy the Royal Mail Hotel’s full culinary experience.
Wickens at Royal Mail Hotel is open Thursday-Saturday evenings for dinner and the Parker Street Project restaurant served lunch and dinner Thursday through to Saturday. Prebooking is essential for both dining rooms.
