Jackalope Hotel

Mornington Peninsula

Amid the world-renowned Mornington Peninsula wine region, Jackalope has been heralded as Gourmet Traveller’s 2018 ‘Boutique Hotel of the Year’.

Jackalope offers a new standard in luxury accommodation – 45 luxury rooms, a 30-metre infinity pool, an on-site winery, cocktail bar and two outstanding restaurants.

A conceptual approach to art, design, dining, and storytelling comes to life through boldly curated installations and collaborations with some of the world’s principal designers, delivering a delicate interplay between the ideal and surreal.

To connect guests to the rural surrounds, the hotel’s 45 rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces, with some rooms offering spa-like deep soak Japanese baths.

Jackalope offers immersive wine and culinary experiences, with Willow Creek Vineyard winery and cellar door on-site, cocktail bar and two restaurants. Destination dining hatted restaurant, Doot Doot Doot, presents a sumptuous five-course tasting menu with dishes intrinsically linked to the land; while relaxed, share-style dining offering, Rare Hare, celebrates the region’s winemaking roots and serves up the best of the Peninsula’s wines, food, pastoral pleasures, and blissful vineyard views.

Just one hour from Melbourne, Jackalope Hotel is the perfect place from which to explore the Peninsula’s pleasures. Over 50 cellar doors and restaurants dot the rolling hills around the hotel’s own vineyard, while the region’s array of surf and sheltered bay beaches, natural hot springs, and national parks contribute to the perfect mix of coastal and country reverie.
