Heritage Listed

This heritage-listed hotel plays host to almost two centuries of stories, scandals and secrets to be explored. The floor boards whisper of the hotel’s rich and often tumultuous history. In fact, the halls house memories of gentlemen’s lunches, nights of cabaret and the most marvelous soirées. It’s true that the very fabric of the property is woven with tales of convicts, entrepreneurs, celebrities-past and countless other patrons of days gone by.


Famous Guests

Some such figures include Sir William Don (1862), Tasmania’s first royal visitor, the Duke of Penrieve, France (1866), Dame Nellie Melba (1909), Antarctic explorers Douglas Mawson (1911) and Roald Amundsen (1912) as well as a host of visiting governors, premiers and prime ministers.


Restoration

After various owners over 180 years this National Trust listed property was eventually authentically restored by the current entrepreneurial owners to reflect the grandeur and decadence of the Victorian era. In close consultation with an expert advisory panel comprising of historians, architects and designers, no expense was spared as the National Trust-listed property was authentically restored to reflect the grandeur and decadence of the Victorian era.
