I had breakfast here on a Sunday morning with friends. The back rear deck is worth it! Lovely views but bring a thick coat if it's cold. The heaters don't give much warmth as there are no cafe blinds to keep the wind chill out....More

What a wonderful lunch I had with family and friends. The handmade meats and mozzarella were so delicious. Ian and Jodie are wonderful hosts. Everyone should come and be taken back to Italy!

The Grande Hotel of Hepburn Springs is an historic country guest house bordering the magical Wombat Forest.

Stay, wine & dine with us at our unique destination guest house & restaurant for an experience of fine food, conviviality & country charm amidst stunning forest scenery. The Grande's rustic, quirky character & its cosy lounge bar, open fires, shady verandahs, garden courtyards, guest rooms right down the hall & convenient village location provide the perfect place to relax in nature.

Our restaurant 'Locale @ The Grande' is where Michelin star-experienced chef Domenico De Marco creates slow, beautiful food with much devotion. He invites you on a culinary adventure through a set-course menu of modern Italian cuisine & also offers a 'cucina' menu which focuses on the rustic & traditional, or as he likes to call it, 'the food that is in my blood.' Dom's way is to cook from scratch, render honour to his produce, waste little & share in the enjoyment his food gives. So come enjoy!
