Experience the Hughenden
Updated: Aug 25
Your home away from home.
“Hospitality is simply an opportunity to show love and care”
The Hughenden has been prized by many throughout the years as a home away from home. This historical building located in the heart of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs has transformed since its formation year in 1870. Initially, the home to Dr. Frederick Harrison Quaife, renowned for introducing the first of x-ray technology to Australia, the hotel preserves its old-world grandeur through its refurbishment in 2017 to incorporate modern comforts. Walking into the Hughenden, you’re greeted with intricate architecture with rich local heritage. Your first impression will leave you speechless as this place has managed to stick to its roots and make you feel like you are walking back in time, from the high ceilings, chandeliers, a grand staircase, and its Victorian furnishing.
The boutique hotel welcomes a wide range of hotel guests from locals needing a night away to international travellers keen to experience authentic insight into Sydney. A regular stop for the residents of Woollahra and Paddington who come here for their coffee fix or on their afternoon stroll to wind down. We also have a function venue to hold birthday, wedding or corporate meetups catering for different needs according to the requirement. Our regular guests love the fact they can host their event seamlessly. The Hughenden offers guests 32 uniquely stylised suites and rooms each with their own allure and character. The merge between classic Victorian heritage with modern conveniences provides a unique and intimate feel to all rooms. Located on all different levels of the hotel the rooms are well catered to the specific needs and preferences of our guests.
Not only does the Hughenden provide accommodation for individuals but it also offers 6 pet-friendly rooms for our furry friends, with no size or breed restriction which sets us apart from other pet-friendly accommodations. We love and welcome our four-legged friends, who we believe have their own individual personality and character. They are well taken care of by our staff who are always going above and beyond to make a lasting impression. Some of these pet-friendly rooms have a self-contained private courtyard that offers your four-legged best friend to walk around and go about their business
