Lancemore unveils refurbished Cleveland Estate
The Lancemore Hotel Group has reopened its refurbished and rebranded boutique hotel, Cleveland Estate, a 50-room residential conference and events venue centred around an 1880s homestead and a 100-acre winery, just outside Melbourne.

The Lancemore Hotel Group has reopened its refurbished and rebranded boutique hotel, Cleveland Estate, a 50-room residential conference and events venue centred around an 1880s homestead and a 100-acre winery, just outside Melbourne.

Located in the Macedon Ranges, an hour from Melbourne, the property is close to Lancemore’s original corporate meetings venue, Lancemore Hill, regarded as one of the first dedicated residential conference venues. It was conceived and designed by Melbourne management consultant Peter Clark and his wife Jan in the 1980s.

The next generation of the Clark family now run the business which has evolved into a group of eight hotels and broadened its reach into the luxury leisure market. Its crown jewel is another storied property, Lancemore Mansion Hotel Werribee Park, built in 1877 as a private home for Scotsman Andrew Chirnside, but later used as a Catholic seminary. The group has other properties in Melbourne’s CBD, regional Victoria, Brisbane and Palm Cove.

Following its multi-million dollar renovation completed in February, Cleveland is likely to be of interest for corporates as it offers a variety of adaptable spaces inside, outside and even underground. 

The historic house has six king-sized bedrooms and accommodation for 14 plus lounges and meeting spaces including a billiard room and open fireplaces. making it an ideal leadership retreat. There are a total of 50 accommodation rooms, including suites on the property and four dedicated indoor event spaces from 20 to a range of theatre, classroom, u-shape configurations for up to 160. In addition there’s the so-called Great Room that can banquet 130.

A covered outdoor terrace overlooking the lake and the vines is available for lunches or dinners, but the property also offers an underground cellar where up to 20 can dine amongst the wine barrels ageing the local vintages.

And if 50 rooms at Cleveland Estate are not enough for a group, just a few minutes away is the original Lancemore Hill property, which has also undergone a multi-million dollar refurbishment and is now known as Lancemore Macedon Ranges. Its sits on more than 200 acres and offers 72 accommodation rooms plus a brace of naturally-lit meeting spaces.

Both properties are less than 35 minutes direct from Melbourne Airport.

Cleveland Estate is also the first property in Lancemore’s just launched sister brand, LMG Collection.
