Dunkeld stop over
Lovely spot to stop over on a trip from Melbourne to Adelaide. Parker Street restaurant very impressive. Great food and service.

This Royal Mail truly Delivers.
Situated in the shadow of Mt. Sturgeon The Royal Mail Hotel offers a choice of accommodation to suit all type of visitors. On a recent trip I stayed in the One Bedroom Apartment and it was more like a home. An abundance of space over two levels and simply yet adequately furnished to make it feel like home away from home. The Garden Cottages are more compact but still very, very roomy. Duikelt is small but there are a few options for food, from breakfast to dinner. If you don't want to leave the Royal Mail grounds then I highly recommend the onsite casual dining restaurant, the Parker St Project. Don't let 'causal dining' fool you - the menu is intriguing, and the food excellent. Wiht an extensive drinks list you really are spoilt for choice.

Well Worth It
The hotel was pleasant; the purpose of the stay was to dine at the hotel's restaurant. The restaurant was worth every penny, even if we did need lots of pennies. We compare the hotel's restaurant favourably against the Berowra Waters Inn on the Hawkesbury River north of Sydney. Being at the foot of the Grampians was a nice scenic addition.

Exceptional 10.0
The staff were very friendly and helpful, they offered a free lift from our rooms to the restaurant and back. They were very informative about the local area. An absolute delight. I had never been to the Grampians, I highly recommend them.

Magical Dunkeld
The Royal Mail Hotel cottages we stayed in . Comfy bed. Great shower and Australian body wash and shampoos. Beautiful open fire on a cooler night. Magnificent views. Sensational food and service in the bistro.
