VIC­TO­RIA Mitchel­ton Ho­tel A new bou­tique ho­tel set on the banks of the Goul­burn River with an idyl­lic view of rolling vine­yards, pris­tine wa­ter­ways and na­tive bush­lands. The strik­ing new ho­tel, with its nat­u­ral stone and warm tim­ber fin­ishes, com­ple­ments the ex­ist­ing Robin Boyd struc­tures, while pay­ing homage to its ru­ral lo­ca­tion and Mitchel­ton’s wine pro­duc­ing back­ground. Guests can walk around the prop­erty, un­wind in the day spa, take a cruise on the Goul­burn River, or just re­lax on the pool ter­race. The ho­tel sits along­side Mitchel­ton’s Muse Restaurant, Min­istry of Chocolate Café, and the cel­lar door. 470 Mitchell­stown Road, Nagam­bie.
