We are delighted to welcome you to The Grande Hotel, an enchanting hotel overlooking the Wombat Forest in Hepburn Springs, and located on just the other side of Daylesford. Our historic hotel first opened in 1930 during the heyday of the mineral spa guesthouses and idylls. Offering then and now, overnight and group stays, a comfy dining room and lounge bar, and a turn around the old verandahs amidst stunning views and tranquil gardens. Take a short amble along forest tracks to the Hepburn Bathhouse, and return to a cosy perch by the log fire and old style country hospitality. Meals are crafted by our regionally renowned hatted-chef. We use the freshest of sustainably farmed local produce, with delightful wines and ales sourced from near and afar. Our guest rooms are newly refurbished in simple modern style. Choose from standard, premium and deluxe spa rooms. See our website for updates on live music, movie nights and special events, or chat to us about celebrating your special occasion beside panoramic Wombat Forest views.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not so Grande. This is more like a guest house than a hotel. The rooms are not good at all. We booked a Deluxe Queen Studio which supposedly had a spa bath and looked beautiful. What we got was an old Syd queen room that resembles a boarding house room in a pub. The rooms are small, there is no tea and coffee making facilities or mini fridge or hair dryer. Beds are comfy but the room takes at least a day to warm up with the oil heating. Very basic and small and not luxurious at all. For the price $280 on I would expect more. There are much better places to stay. The lounge/bar area I beautiful and cosy and the upstairs decor is lovely. Downstairs where the rooms are is another story. We were offered no compensation for the mistake with our booking except a glass of local Prosecco. This was supposed to be a special weekend away but it turned sour pretty quickly upon seeing the rooms. I feel tricked and some false ad ergo sing is happening at this place.

The gracious old Grande Hotel, in Hepburn Springs, has recently changed hands and it’s dining room is now open to the general public. We thought we’d try their “Locals Tuesday Gnocchi Night”, advertised as “Freshly made potato Gnocchi & a beautiful glass of wine” for $39.90 per person. In regards to the “beautiful glass of wine”, the options offered were simply, white or red, so we chose white. This turned out to be, I think, a Pecorino which was very sweet. We were then brought a Chardonnay which, although not something we would have chosen, was better. We had bolognese gnocchi, and barramundi & prawn gnocchi. It has to be said here that the home made gnocchi may well have been the best we’ve had. The gnocchi itself was perfect and the sauces sang with flavour. It was served on a flat plate with a fork, making the sauce almost impossible to pick up, so we asked if we might perhaps have a little bread to accompany the dish. Finally, after our gnocchi was finished with said sauces stubbornly remaining on the plate, an order of two tiny pieces of freshly baked bread per person arrived - unfortunately too late. My suggestion would be, for maximum enjoyment, to simply accompany the excellent gnocchi with a very small bread basket. The desserts on offer were Sticky Date Pudding or Baked Cheesecake. Unfortunately the cheesecake which we requested was no longer available. The Sticky Date Pudding with vanilla ice-cream which we shared, was both delicious and extremely generous. The restaurant was busy, and the staff friendly. The dining room and the hotel entrance and lobby area in general were everything you’d hope for in an historic 1920’s venue.

What a place! We had the most fabulous weekend with a big group of friends and we could not have had a better time. The hotel is absolutely charming and so was our host, Ian. I loved the beautiful dining room, the lounge where the bar is has the feel of an old English Pub, just what you want. Not to mention the entertainment room downstairs! So cosy and versatile, amazing ( the old floorboards are fantastic)! The bedrooms are lovely and the bed super-comfy. I really liked the tiles in the bathroom, it has a really fresh look. I very much enjoyed the fact that it was only a short walk down the hill to the Hepburn Springs which offers some wonderful walks through the bush. In the words of Arnie - "I'll be back!" Thank you Ian and Team The Grande

A quick thank you to all The Grande staff for an enjoyable stay. This quaint hotel is full of charm and well suited to accommodate a large group of friends, such as we had for a 3 night stay, The hotel organised entertainment on site, a cabaret one night and the following night a duo performing old classics. Both acts were first class and we all thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. The room was top notch and I had the best night sleep I have had for ages. Again thanks to The Grande for a memorable stay. We'll be back.
