A dream

"All you should do here is relax with a book and go for walks in nature, around or up the mountain."

Royal Mail Hotel is a unique destination set in extensive Australian gardens, with stunning views of the Southern Grampians Ranges. Award-winning food and wine, accommodation and wedding facilities and the nearby historic Mt Sturgeon cottages are all available for guests to explore and enjoy.

Originally established in 1855, the hotel retains its historical charm while providing guests with contemporary, architecturally designed facilities that take advantage of the stunning natural surroundings. Accommodation is located both at the Royal Mail Hotel itself and on the Mt Sturgeon property, a nearby working sheep station and the starting point for many of the guided walks leading into the captivating beauty of the Grampians National Park. All accommodation options give guests access to Royal Mail Hotel facilities including Royal Mail Hotel walks, an outdoor swimming pool, bar and restaurant.

Awarded two hats by the Age Good Food Guide in 2016, The Royal Mail Restaurant offers unique, nature-based cuisine focusing on the highest quality organic and heirloom produce, and the latest culinary techniques. Multi-course tasting menus follow nature's cue to change with the seasons and are inspired by the hotel's natural surrounds. Each day tasting menus are prepared, based on produce harvested from the kitchen gardens, collected from the wild and sourced from local artisan producers. Dining at the Royal Mail Restaurant requires time; time to experience a range of ingredients, temperatures and textures; to leave behind preconceived ideas; to experience a gastronomic journey highlighting the perfection of each ingredient.

The award-winning Royal Mail cellar houses an extensive selection of Australian and international wines, including Australia's leading collection of Bordeaux and Burgundy.

  • The Royal Mail Hotel which sits at the base of Mt Sturgeon is a dream. All you should do here is relax with a book and go for walks in nature, around or up the mountain.

Lovebird's View

David and I had a lovely weekend at Royal Mail Hotel. The absolute highlight was the chef's tasting menu with matching wines. Visiting Royal Mail Hotel for a dinner/sleepover really should be on every lovebirds' to-do list.
