About Hughenden Boutique Hotel


This award-winning hotel is one of Sydney’s gracefully restored heritage buildings. Built in 1872 by Dr. Fredrick Harrison Quaife as a family home, it was later converted to a hotel and lovingly restored to it’s former glory in 1992. The 36 rooms are decorated in Victorian grandeur, with arts and literature being the focal point of this boutique hotel. Situated in Sydney’s historical district between Woollahra and Paddington, Hughenden Boutique Hotel is one of the many beautifully restored Victorian homes, more recently converted to art galleries, restaurants, bars, and cafes in this vibrant and unique part of Sydney. A short three kilometers from the hotel lies the city center of Sydney, and within a walking distance are recommended attractions like the Centennial Parklands, Fox Studios, and numerous shopping, restaurants, and art galleries. Hughenden Boutique Hotel is also a pet friendly hotel with dedicated rooms, pet washing facilities and easy access to Centennial Park.

A pleasant weekend
One only issue for us was the night light from the corridor came through the curtain and kept us awake. Otherwise all was good.

Ok for convenience when going to the footy
frankly the room was so small 20 sqrs that you could barely swing a rat in it. the tv didn't work nor the cable tv and the bed wasnt high quality. on the positive side it was convenient. breakfast was excellent, internet was ok but limited to 750MB. water pressure was good and water was hot. overall ok only for the price tag.

Good location, nice food, small room
We had booked into a cosy room for our 14 night stay. Our welcome at the hotel was efficient and professsional. The room was clean with airconditioning and ensuite toilet and shower. There was limited storage space: a small wardrobe with a few hangers and some drawers, and two bedside tables. Once we had got our three suitcases in the room it seemed very small indeed. Bed was comfortable, room was serviced daily. We suspect the people doing the servicing were quite short, because they did not dust on some of the higher surfaces. Breakfast was buffet style and was very acceptable. The hotel is very conveniently located for public transport.

We booked the cozy room, and it was a bit small to stay longer than one night. Besides that our stay was quite pleasant.

Terrace Room level 1
Buffet breakfast, service, foxtel included
Lovely! Delicious buffet breakfast and great service. We were very excited to see how beautiful our bedroom was for the weekend! Very tidy apartment. Beautiful area of town. Public transport super easy to get into the CBD. Only downside to staying in Terrace Room 1 is you can hear everything on the floor above. It didn't sound like there was any sound barriers, even for bathroom use above! Perhaps street parking passes would be a good idea for guests? Otherwise you have to move your car every 2 hours to avoid a parking ticket as there aren't enough Hotel Parking spaces available for all guests.
