Opening December 1st 2017, in the Victorian countryside near Nagambie, The Mitchelton Hotel and Spa provides a new standard in laid back luxury for the region just 90 minutes’ drive from Melbourne. A personal project of caravan magnate Gerry Ryan and his son Andrew. The $16 million Mitchelton Hotel and Spa is the most recent addition to the family’s spectacular Mitchelton Winery Estate, set on the banks of the Goulburn River.
Initially planned for construction upon the property’s founding in 1969 a vision never realised due to budget constraints, the striking new facility was conceived in partnership with internationally renowned design firm Hecker Guthrie to complement the property’s existing Robin Boyd structures, whilst paying homage to its rural location and wine producing background.
The Mitchelton Hotel’s 58 rooms is comprised of the 33-?sqm ‘River’ or ‘Vineyard’ view categories through to the four 57-?sqm suites. Featuring spacious rooms adorned with earthy tones, the hotel was designed to have a relationship with its countryside setting and, in particular, the horse studs around Nagambie.
The tribute to the area and its landscape continues inside the hotel. In guest rooms, floor to ceiling windows open onto private terraces with expansive views of the Goulburn River or Mitchelton Vineyard. Whilst inside, details of the linen curtains, timber joinery, Trevor Mein & David Band artworks create a soft, warm space for guests to unwind.
Upon the banks of the Goulburn River, on a terrace landscaped by Jamie Clapham, sits a 20m infinity pool where guests can embrace the rural setting whilst sampling one of winemaker Travis Clydesdale’s finest tipples. Opening special room rates for the Mitchelton Hotel start at $289.
