Your hosts

AC TV Show
A love of hosting is in our DNA.  Following successful careers in the service, sales and hospitality industries, we were looking for the right opportunity to give up the corporate world and city life to pursue our dream of opening a small luxury hotel.  
We chanced upon The Dudley back in 2017 and immediately fell in love with the property and the surrounding area.  We knew this was a place where we could bring our vision to life.  Soon after, we packed up our lives in Singapore and settled in Hepburn Springs, a place we are now delighted to call home.  
We have been fortunate to travel extensively across the globe and have experienced every type of accommodation, from the grand to the boutique.  Time and time again we found that we preferred the smaller, more intimate experiences, particularly those that incorporated the best that the local area had to offer.  With that front of mind, we set about creating a warm and relaxed, simple yet personalised taste of the Australian countryside – with a touch of luxury.  
Bringing together our travel and hospitality expertise with our desire to create memorable experiences, we want The Dudley to become “a destination”, a place where our guests can escape the hustle and bustle of their lives and relax in absolute luxury. 
We hope that you will get as much joy from your stay here as we will have in hosting you.

Started out as a tour bus driver at a very young age, Charles’ knowledge in buses saw him working for one of the biggest automobile manufacturer. A 6-month stint overseas eventually turned into an 18-year career in 5 countries. With his last stint in Singapore, he has finally decided to come home (to Melbourne) and found the opportunity to do something he has always wanted to do – to have a Hotel business.

Adrian H.

Trained in hospitality, Adrian’s passion for service stemed from his very first job as a Guest Relations Officer in a Hotel back in Singapore. His long career with Singapore Airlines carried this passion through to several stints in Public Relations, Retail and Marketing, Training, and back to Operations with a renown international Hotel brand. Sharing that same vision as Charles of running a small business of his own, they partnered up and armed with the knowledge of hospitality operations, they took over and revived The Dudley Boutique Hotel business in November 2017.
