Vue Grand Hotel

46 Hesse St., Queenscliff, Victoria, 3225, Australia

Built in 1881, this stylish hotel blends old world elegance with modern touches in its recently restored grand premises. The ultralavish Turret Suite at the top of the building has 180-degree views of the bay and all the latest amenities. It is the pièce de résistance of the hotel's rooms and suites, and comes with a matching price tag (A$495 per night with breakfast). The hotel's main lobby is a grand affair with marble columns, elegant staircase, and art deco statues. The Grand Dining Room makes you wish you had dressed in Great Gatsby–style elegance before entering. It has soaring ceilings, antiques, and a grand piano, and tables are set with sparkling stemware and crisp linens. Dinner ($$) may feature or locally sourced beef or snapper. For casual dining, head to the hotel's Vue Street Bar ($) on the terrace, serving pizza and toasted sandwiches, and beer on tap.
