The Dudley


The Dudley Boutique Hotel,  has a new place and been fully renovated to become an elegant boutique hotel with exemplary service.

Refined, relaxing and refreshed for 21st-century stays – welcome to The Dudley, near Daylesford. It can be hard to put your finger on what makes The Dudley Boutique Hotel so special. Perhaps the luxury beds that are made for long lie-ins, the help-yourself treats when you need a midnight feast, or the architecture that echoes its long history. Either way, keeping things small means this boutique hotel is big on luxury. Rise and shine with a gourmet breakfast. So much more than cornflakes and coffee, at The Dudley the most important meal of the day means silver service, Royal Doulton crockery and best-of-the-season local produce. After that you could tuck yourself away in The Library, where one side of the log fire is a mini book and film library. Then again, if the sun is shining, the flowering gardens are a soul-soothing space for a chilled glass of wine. If you do feel like venturing out, the staff at The Dudley are brimming with ideas and restaurant recommendations. Remember, this is spa country – so visit the Hepburn Bathhouse Complex to experience the warm mineral spring waters. The Dudley can also direct you to wineries, regional farmers markets or pack you off with a champagne-filled picnic basket, blanket and directions to lakeside or forest picnic spots. The Dudley Boutique Hotel is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
