One of the original hotels from the fabulous gold-rush era of the mid-1800s, this two-storeyed hotel offers the most elegant accommodation in the area. There are four luxury suites upstairs in the main hotel building and two adjoining suites in the rear garden. Owner John Ganci has sourced exquisite French furniture, most of it through local antique dealers, to give the building a strong French flavour. Fine bed linen, beautiful soft furnishings and exquisite chandeliers reinforce the feel. Contemporary marble bathrooms are well fitted out with feature walls of Italian glass mosaic tiles. There is an in-house cafe, bar and restaurant. Ask about their local tours.
