Victorian Accommodation at Sydney’s Hughenden Hotel

With all the charm of the Victorian era, the Hughenden Hotel in Woollahra is a truly special place to stay.

This stunning bed and breakfast was built in 1870, and it retains all the magic of the period. From the black marble fireplaces to the wrought-iron staircase, the attention to detail is superb.Victorian style door

The Hughenden Hotel has 36 rooms, including several that are pet-friendly. While they are styled to capture the feel of a bygone era, the Hughenden doesn’t skimp on the modern conveniences. Every room has air-conditioning, a television with Foxtel, and a small fridge.

The hotel’s restaurant, Quaife’s on Queen, is the perfect spot for a family meal or intimate dinner for two. Diners can enjoy listening to the grand piano on Friday and Saturday nights.

In winter, the Victorian Lounge is great for a quick snack. It’s open every Sunday between 3 and 5 pm for finger sandwiches, scones with cream, chocolate-covered strawberries and more tasty treats.

The Hughenden Hotel is close to the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney Football Stadium, The Entertainment Quarter, and Centennial and Moore Parks. There are a range of boutique shops and galleries nearby, and Oxford Street’s bustling nightlife is just around the corner.

With its great location and luxurious rooms you’d expect to pay a fortune, right? Yet, the Hughenden Hotel is surprisingly affordable with discounts available when booking online. You can expect to pay $200-$300 for a room, depending on its size and when you plan to stay.
