About Us

The Mountain View Hotel is located in the heart of a tiny hamlet called Whitfield, in Victoria’s King Valley wine region.

First opened for business in 1886, the ownership of the Mountain View Hotel has only ever changed twice and has been in the hands of the Pizzini family since 1995.

The Hotel sits alongside Jessie’s Creek and is surrounded by beautiful, old gardens.

Prior to being a hotel, the site was an Inn, local legend has it that one day Ned Kelly rode his horse through the corridor! In the gardens leading to the carpark you will notice a huge, proud Magnolia; this tree is one of three planted by a local Chinese immigrant Rupert Hing over 100 years ago to remind himself of home. The King Valley was then home to a flourishing Chinese community who worked in industries to support the Gold Rush. This Magnolia tree sits next to a Flowering Tulip tree of similar age. Wander the gardens, there are a few other surprises such as an old Ginko and Flame trees.

If the hotel’s walls could speak they could tell many local’s stories and secrets – some best left untold, some that would make us laugh, some that would make us cry – this hotel holds a special place in many hearts, we hope after your visit, you have your own special story to tell.
