The grand, two-storey red-brick building housing Perry Street Hotel began its life as a Mechanics Institute in 1862, before becoming a library, and finally a sensitively restored hotel. Linger on the staircase leading up to the rooms, where details of the hotel's salvage story are displayed, along with old photos of Mudgee.

Our favourite rooms
All rooms are sleek, sumptuous and impeccably styled, taking notes from elegant European design. We love Junior Spa Suite 201 for its blissful spa bath and balcony: a perfect spot to sit with a coffee watching sleepy Mudgee wake up. For extra space, bag the impressive Blue Room.
Your iPod, loaded with a killer playlist to plug into the dock in your room, and a camera to capture the gorgeous countryside, but leave enough space in your suitcase for a couple of bottles of local wine and olive oil to take home.

Perry Street is a decidedly sophisticated stay, ideal for a child-free winery weekend. If you do have wee ones in tow, the hotel has family-friendly interconnecting suites, or can provide a cot in any room (for AU$10). Babysitting is available.
The hotel recycles, uses eco-friendly lighting and draws on local produce and tradespeople.
