Bespoke country luxury

Tom Ford

Welcome to The Dudley – where you can experience the ultimate in luxury, combined with a unique blend of Asian and Australian hospitality.       Built in the 1930’s, this house was once an accommodation home for people with special needs.  Over the intervening decades it has undergone several extensions, and more recently, it has been fully renovated to become an elegant boutique hotel, designed to fit the needs of the modern traveller.

In 2019, The Dudley Boutique Hotel was awarded 3rd in the Top 10 4-Star Hotels in Australia by Trivago. The Hotel has also been awarded Tripadvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Award (Top 25 Small Hotels in Australia) for the last 3 years. In 2015 and 2016, The Dudley won Luxury Boutique Hotel of the Year in Victoria and has been named in 2016 as one of the 10 Most Luxurious Getaways in Australia. Our dedicated team harness a united vision and passion to continuously bring the ultimate indulgence of country luxury to guests each and every day.  

We hope you’ll enjoy The Dudley experience.
