The 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, The Hughenden 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. The Hughenden is also a pet friendly hotel, with dedicated rooms, pet washing facilities and easy access to Centennial Park.
