Welcome to the Plantagenet Hotel
Nestled in the heart of the Mount Barker township, the Plantagenet Hotel is a grand and magnificent 1912 federation two story hotel. Faithfully and meticulously maintained, it retains all the architectural wonders of a bygone era. Lofty ornate ceilings, grand staircase and apple carved motifs in both the upper verandah balustrades and posts, reflect the heritage of the area.
An open log fire in the lounge bar lends a warm and cosy country ambiance. The perfect place to sample excellent, award winning local wines, accompanied by renown "home cooked" meals, that can be sumptuous, light and refreshing, deliciously decadent for dessert, and so much more.
Guests who choose to retire to one of the many sort after hotel rooms, continue their historic experience, sleeping on four poster beds under high ceilings framed with magnificent ornate cornices.
