Total refurb for iconic Mornington Peninsula hotel

Victoria's Mornington Peninsula is one of Australia's finest wine and food destinations and gracious Lindenderry has for two decades been one of the best places to stay. It even has its own vineyard.

The last time I visited, however, it was looking a little tired (I'm being kind). 

A massive recent refurb is aimed at reigniting Lindenderry's popularity.

Australian design firm Hecker Guthrie (I've never heard of them but am assured they are hot stuff) has completed the multi-million dollar refurbishment for boutique hotel group Lancemore.

A key element is the revamp of the restaurant, now described as having "a cool, unstuffy take on a traditional English estate".


Located in the heart of Red Hill and only an hour from downtown Melbourne, Lindenderry is well positioned as a base to explore the entire Mornington Peninsula. 

Paul Witherington, formerly of London’s Soho House and Port Phillip Estate, is executive chef across all dining at the hotel with an emphasis on locally-sourced ingredients worked into rustic assemblages. 



All 40 rooms and four communal gathering spaces have been re-worked to highlight the property's undoubted country charm. 

There are handsome couches in dark leather, wood floors and fireplaces and side-tables cast from marble. The 34 hectares of gardens feature a sculpture by acclaimed Melbourne-born artist Michael Cartwright.

“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," said Lancemore CEO Julian Clark. "The reincarnation of Lindenderry is for them.

“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.”

Lindenderry’s extensive renovation comes hot on the heels of another rejuvenated Lancemore property, the Larmont Sydney (formerly The Diamant), which is just around the corner from the iconic King’s Cross Coca-Cola sign.
