Hotel Etico

Mount Victoria Accommodation


Hotel Etico provides beautiful and comfortable accommodation in an historic manor house, delicious food from Niccolo's restaurant and a wide selection of drinks from our bar within a unique and warm atmosphere. All of this, while powering a program that provides employment and independent living opportunities to young people with intellectual disability, helping them to achieve their independence goals.


Located in the historic Mount Victoria Manor, Hotel Etico is Australia’s first social enterprise hotel, providing vocational training and independent living skills for young adults with learning disabilities.

The program recently saw its first intake of trainees graduate, all securing great jobs in the hospitality field; while another 10 have recently joined the team, and will learn all aspects of hospitality, from housekeeping to bartending and working in the kitchen.

As well as learning hospitality skills, some trainees live on-site during their three-day work week at the Academy of Independence, learning to share a living space, cook and cater for themselves, all the while gaining friendships and camaraderie with fellow trainees.

With the trainees front and centre of hotel operations, Hotel Etico guests have the opportunity to chat with them, learn their stories, and appreciate the nurturing environment the hotel provides. A stay here is a holiday that creates opportunities – empowering young people to fulfil their dreams of independence.

With its historic charm and beautiful cool climate gardens, Hotel Etico is also a lovely venue for a dream wedding.
