The Dudley Boutique Hotel has a new space.

Refined, relaxing and refreshed for 21st-century stays – Welcome to The Dudley in Hepburn Springs. Perched right at the edge of the forest grounds where nature is literally at your doorstep, it can be hard to put your finger on what makes The Dudley Boutique Hotel so special. Perhaps it is the luxury beds that are made for long lie-ins, could it be the help-yourself treats when you need a midnight feast, or the decor and styling of Old meets New, or the fact that this Hotel only has six rooms. Either way, keeping things small means this boutique hotel is big on luxury. 

At The Dudley, rise and shine with a lavish breakfast that is so much more than croissants, cornflakes and coffee. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that means the team will pull out all the stops – silver service, Royal Doulton crockery and best-of-the-season’s local produce. 

After that, feel free to tuck yourself away in The Library and bury your head in a book from our varied collection or have a laugh over a vintage board game. Then again, if the sun is shining, the flowering gardens are a soul-soothing space for a glass of chilled wine. If you do feel like venturing out, the team at The Dudley are brimming with ideas and restaurant recommendations. Remember, this is a spa country town – so visit the Hepburn Bathhouse Complex to experience the warm mineral spring waters. The Dudley team can also direct you to wineries, regional farmers markets or pack you off with a champagne-filled picnic basket, blanket and directions to lakeside or forest picnic spots. 

Art galleries, wineries, quaint shops, cafes and restaurants and other local points of interest are a few minutes drive away. Being centrally located in Victoria also means that a drive to nearby country towns is within 20-45 minutes from The Dudley.
