Peppers Mineral Springs Hotel can be found in the beautiful spa town of Hepburn Springs in Victoria. Surrounded by country lanes, tree lined walks and undulating hills in all directions, Hepburn Springs is just a 5 minute drive from lovely town of Daylesford. At the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, Hepburn Springs is one of the prettiest spots in country Victoria. The region is also home to over 80% of Australia’s natural mineral springs making it a perfect destination for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Peppers Mineral Springs Hotel is a gorgeous art deco style hotel found in the main street of Hepburn Springs. I recently managed to visit on a rare child free weekend and it was a pleasure to stay in this beautiful hotel, explore the beautiful township of Daylesford, try out some of the great local eateries and enjoy a soak in the natural mineral waters of the Spa at the Hotel.
The Hotel is surrounded by stunning sculptured gardens and it also houses the award winning The Argus Dining Room restaurant. We arrived late in the day and ended up grabbing a quick bite at the hotel bar.
The food was tasty and the service was helpful. We enjoyed dining in the luxury and quiet of the front lounge.
I may have imagined myself in an Agatha Christie novel which is an excellent thing (in case you were wondering).
We also enjoyed breakfast in The Conservatory the next morning as this was included in our accommodation package. The room was elegant and light filled and the food was quite good. An excellent local muesli mix was probably one of the highlights although the Eggs Benedict were also very good. Plunger coffee, tea, juice, pastries, toast and fruit were all included. You could also order what you liked off the menu which was then cooked fresh in the kitchen.
The highlight of Peppers Mineral Springs Hotel was definitely the gorgeous location, stunning natural surrounds and the simply elegant hotel room.
The rooms in the main hotel have been renovated but retain the original features such as gorgeous timber sash windows that look out in the surrounding countryside. There are a number of other accommodation options beside the main hotel rooms including self-contained rooms for small or large groups.
The lounge, lobby, library and conservatory at the Hotel were also very beautiful, being filled with art, lamplight and soft furnishings.
You can probably tell that I loved it.
We also enjoyed dessert at the nearby Belvedere Social. There are many, many other great things to do in the local area including a visit to the Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens and a walk and a coffee at Daylesford Lake.
Peppers Mineral Springs Hotel was a unique and elegant hotel and I look forward to visiting again some time.
