Alpine Retreat Hotel

Hotel in Warburton

Once catering to Melbourne honeymooners, the sprawling 1920s faux-Tudor Alpine Retreat has cheap and cheerful rooms. It's right on the Warby Trail so it's popular with bike riders. Its pub is also a great place for a beer and a meal with a selection of 15 types of parmas (from $18), including a seafood, pulled beef and veggie variety.
