Royal Café and Accommodation
Built in 1889 as the Royal Hotel, this magnificent building was gutted by fire on the 28th August 1938. Later on that year the building was rebuilt and named the New Royal Hotel. The now current owners, Brad Keable and Toni Heaney, purchased the property in December 2006 and converted the hotel to a hip 60’s style café and accommodation
Dine either inside the chic café, on the veranda or alfresco under the magnificent willow tree. If it is a quick caffeine hit you need, then the Royal also offers take away tea, coffee and delicious cakes, slices and biscuits.
Choose from nine well-appointed comfortable rooms or the semi self-contained cottage located across the courtyard and the back of the main building.
Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, looking for a weekend escape or just a fantastic coffee, the Royal Café and accommodation is the perfect venue to exceed your every requirement.
