Located in the very heart of Red Hill and only an hour from Melbourne, Lindenderry is strategically positioned to soak up the best of Mornington Peninsula: pure-sand beaches, soul-enriching nature, artisan produce and mere minutes from the region’s boutique wineries. Except now, guests are just as likely to never leave the property.
Partnering with leading Australian design firm Hecker Guthrie on the multi-million dollar refurbishment, boutique hotel group Lancemore has relaunched the ambitious new-look property, featuring 5 Star Halliday Winery, Lindenderry Wines, and a restaurant that will undo all outdated perceptions of regional hotel dining. A once-sweet, homely space the 40-room boutique hotel - set on 34 stunning hectares of gardens and vineyards - feels like a cool, unstuffy take on the traditional English estate.
Paul Witherington, formerly of London’s Soho House and Port Phillip Estate, is executive chef across all dining at the hotel, accompanied by a leading team of hospitality professionals offering warm and informed service (Montalto, Point Leo Estate). The hotel restaurant does regional character right: hand-selected, locally-sourced ingredients worked into rustic assemblages. It’s an elegant approach to hearty farmhouse fare.
A Euro-Australian extension of the landscape, award-winning studio Hecker Guthrie have elevated the insides of all 40 rooms and four communal gathering spaces to woo the most discerning of travellers. Abundant in natural materials to capture the true essence of place and considered interiors that ooze chic, countryside charm.
At the helm of Lindenderry’s interior revolution, Julian Clark, CEO of the family-owned, Melbourne-based Lancemore Group. “We have been in Red Hill for almost 20 years now and have come to understand the sensibility of the people who love this region. The reincarnation of Lindenderry is for them,” he says. “Hecker Guthrie have delivered a contemporary fusion of European country hotel design features with a distinctly Australian touch, that we hope will become something special in the Australian hotel landscape.”
Underpinned by a generous spirit and service intuitive to guests needs, Lindenderry offers bespoke luxury at its best. In every suite, minibars are stocked with Dom Perignon and artisanal products plucked from local makers. If a neighbouring winery feels too far from bed, Lindenderry prides itself on some of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir’s in the region, awarded a 5 Star Halliday Winery rating —or you can meander to the adjoining restaurant. Rates start from $320 a night.
