In the Goulburn Valley, an hour and a half drive north of Melbourne’s city centre is the Mitchelton Hotel. Famous for its wines, the estate now features a design hotel in a retro 1960s-style architecture. Slotting seamlessly into its surroundings, the property has views of the nearby river and the rolling vineyards which produce the accompaniment to the surrounding valley's produce of the gourmet restaurant. Luxury rooms are decorated in earthy tones and all come with a balcony. There is also a small spa, outdoor swimming pool and a bar.
