About the property

$88 per person per night twin share, minimum group size 6 adults.

Nestled in the hills of South Gippsland awaits The Old Hospital. Originally a country hospital, it is now a newly refurbished self-catering guest house. Your booking at The Old Hospital includes exclusive use of all facilities which makes it an ideal retreat for community and interest-based groups as well as corporate groups.

Walking distance from Loch Village, The Old Hospital is surrounded by quaint cafes, a brewery and gin distillery, steakhouse and bar, antique store and artist galleries. The Old Hospital is a short drive from scenic wineries and the Gourmet Gippsland Trail. Visit on a Sunday and you may catch the Kongwak Market, a treasury of vintage delights.

Cyclists will take respite from the rolling Gippsland hills. Craft groups will gather inspiration from gazing out of the conservatory. Corporate groups will enjoy the spacious conference room and outdoor deck areas.

A fully equipped commercial kitchen will meet all your self catering needs. Alternately, you may like to order ahead and your groceries can arrive before your group's check in time. The Old Hospital’s resident owners are happy to accept, check, unpack & stock your fridge and pantry with your grocery delivery from Woolies online. Local caterers are also available on request.

The Old Hospital is less than 90 minutes drive from Melbourne. Come and enjoy the peace and quiet on your next group retreat.

Please note, we have a strict no party policy. Not suitable for children under 18 years old. Check in time 2pm. Check out time 11am.

Why Peter and Michelle Campbell chose Loch

Set in the pretty village of Loch, surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of South Gippsland and only 90 minutes drive from Melbourne made our decision for a tree change in this town a very easy one. The serenity of the town and surrounding area is just amazing and the locals have been very welcoming and supportive.

What makes this guest house unique

Each group booking of 6 or more has exclusive use of the whole property, including a large function/activities room, lounge, dining and commercial kitchen. A large north facing deck looks over the private rear garden and the rolling Gippsland hills.

Each bedroom is comfortably furnished with plush bedding which can be configured as twin singles or as king beds. All bedrooms have en suites.

The perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful find. I was tasked with finding a retreat for our sewing group and chanced upon the perfect place. Peter and Michelle went out of their way to cater for us..daylight lamps, irons, bins and the perfect ambiance. The bedrooms, all with en suites, are pristine, comfortable and the decor has a nod to its previous life as a bush nursing hospital. The lounge/dining room is spacious, relaxing and with a view across the deck to the rolling Loch hills. Add a commercial grade kitchen and this is the perfect place for a get-away. To stretch our legs we could wander to the cafes and shops well within walking distance with a brewery and gin distillery open on some days. Before we left we booked another retreat for later in the year. Highly recommended.
