The Hughenden Rooms
Updated: Aug 25, 2021
Throughout the years, Hughenden has been a prized home for many of our guests as they lovingly like to call it “their home away from home”. If you have not stayed with us before and are planning to come to visit us, then this post is for you.
This 1870 historic mansion has seen a lot of changes since its inception year, from a private residence, nursing home to a dance hall. Having been rediscovered in 1992 and through extensive restoration, it has now become an elegant and beloved hotel for so many of us, the locals, and visitors alike.
Currently, we have 31 boutique rooms all uniquely decorated that come with their character and charm. The rooms start with a budget cosy room for a single night solo traveller to grander rooms like our suites and deluxe for visitors who prefer to have more room to move around. The different rooms help our visitors to work within their budget and the purpose of their stay. Also, if you are unaware, we are the only hotel in Sydney that does not have a size or number restriction on pets, so you are a pet lover or own one you are in for a treat. Choose from 8 of our pet-friendly spacious rooms some with an outdoor area where your pooch can go and stretch its legs.
