Built in 1891, our landmark building is an integral part of the history of Victoria. We did some major renovations in 2000 to modernize the building, so it can accommodate our guests in comfort and style.

Beautiful Art Decor

We’ve trekked to remote villages in Bali and Java to bring back the funkiest, most colourful, master crafted old school art. Really. There are masks, sculptures and photos from some of our global journeys.

And More…

We also have games and books for you to borrow, pay phones that receive incoming calls, and so much more…
