We loved our food the kids meals were outstanding they had a salad which they don't get at other restaurants adult meals were outstanding as well.. amazing flavour. The butter was interesting as well with a secret ingredient. The wine menu was huge. My dad took about 15mins to decide! Amazing restaurant and would come back

We stayed at the Royal Mail for three nights over Christmas & also did the degustation Christmas lunch. What a perfect way to spend Christmas! I'll start with the accommodation- our 1-bedroom apartment was amazing...spacious, beautiful, lovely views & everything we could possibly need. The food was incredible! Our Christmas lunch was spectacular- course after course of deliciousness, with our...

Spent lunch at Royal Mail Hotel with a small group of friends, after hearing of good reviews, so high expectations for our meal. On arrival we were seated, and provided with the drinks menu. There was no attention from wait staff then for our drinks, and no food menu provided. After waiting for about 15 minutes, a member of our...

We arrived at the Royal Mail Hotel at the tail end of our road trip through the Great Ocean Road. We had pretty hefty expectations of the establishment as it was relatively reviewed and not to mention all the buzz over its two-hatted restaurant. These factors convinced us to splurge out the little extra than we usually do for the...

My partner and our friends spend an amazing time at The Royal Mail Hotel last weekend. The rooms were well appointed, comfortable and had great views. The plunger coffee and the T2 tea were nice touches. We loved everything about the rooms and the dining room. Top notch and first rate!

I stayed in Dunkeld for one night as i wanted to visit the grampians and have dinner in the restaurant. I read other reviews before and was worried it would be overrated but i was happy. The room must have been recently renovated, spacious, well designed and clean. I even had views to the mountains at lowest category. The restaurant...

We stayed at the Royal Mail Hotel...what a great experience. Sitting on the verandah sipping wine with an amazing view of the Southern Grampians. There is a two hatted restaurant which is very decadent. We had dinner in the bistro which is run by the same chef. The food was delicious. In the morning we did a tour of the...
