The Dudley Boutique Hotel

Old-world hospitality meets modern-day luxury in this restful Daylesford retreat

Wind your way along a red-brick path through flowering gardens and The Dudley Boutique Hotel springs into view. Outside, the building is all fresh white fretwork and wisteria that lends it a home-from-home feel. Yet while comfort is high on the agenda at The Dudley, this is very much a contemporary luxury escape.

The original 1908 house has been refreshed for 21st century stays – and the old jamming shed reborn as the Cottage. But heartfelt hospitality and a sprinkling of vintage features preserve its heritage. The breakfasts alone are worth the visit. Then there’s the virtually impossible to leave beds, leather reading chairs and log fires, DVD and paperback libraries, works by regional artists, nothing-too-much-trouble service and countless thoughtful touches.

Staff at The Dudley love recommending must-see spots in the local area. If you only venture out once, make it to the Hepburn Bathhouse Complex to bathe in the mineral waters and refresh with one-of-a-kind spa treatments. Or you could head out hiking, stopping for supplies at local farmers’ markets – or with a Dudley picnic and directions to wild and wonderful lunch locations. For something a little more relaxed, winery visits and restaurant bookings can easily be arranged.

The accommodation is very comfortable and welcoming. What makes Dudleys stand out from other venues is the extra mile that Charles and Adrian go to make your stay memorable. From cheese and wine (or apple spritzer for us non-drinker) to the individualised breakfasts and an offer to take you to local Read more[SPLIT]Read lessrestaurants. We had intended to spend the afternoon visiting local areas but the gardens were so beautiful we found ourselves reading and relaxing in the garden, something we never have time for at home. After returning from a lovely dinner Adrian brought in a tea and coffee to finish off an ideal, peaceful evening. After only one night felt like we had been away for a week.

Traditional comforts with a personal touch.

The delicious and beautifully presented breakfast is great, as is the personal attention and great local knowledge of the owners. The afternoon wine and cheese is a lovely treat.

Food And Drinks

Local growers supply The Dudley with field-to-fork seasonal produce. At breakfast, that means the freshest eggs, fig-dotted charcuterie and just-squeezed juices. Fine crystal and Royal Doulton lend everything a refined, vintage flavour. The hotel keeps cocktail hour by serving drinks and canapés before pointing you towards the area’s best restaurants. And if you haven’t had your fill, the luxury ‘tuck shop’ in the Library is made for mini midnight feasts. Then of course there’s The Dudley Picnic. It comes with blanket, champagne and frisbee – plus directions to lake and mountain lunch spots.

The Dudley Dining Room

Breakfast is served in the Dining Room with full service using fine crystal and Royal Doulton crockery. We only use the highest quality of ingredients in all of our dishes- sourcing and showcasing local produce where possible. Vegan and Vegetarian options are available as part of our regular breakfast service and we will happily accommodate for specific food allergies and preferences.
