Historic Character Building
Built in 1891, our landmark building is an integral part of the history of Victoria. We converted this heritage building to its current use in 2000 and we are continuously updating en renovating it, 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.
We also have games and books for you to borrow, pay phones that receive incoming calls, and so much more…
