The Vibe: Art Deco.
The Area: Set amongst the highlands of Northern Tablelands of New South Wales, midway between Brisbane and Sydney, 100 miles inland from the coast.
The DNA: Originally built in 1854 (during the town’s gold rush heyday), in the 1930s, its Victorian bones were given an art deco transformation that included a front façade with curved glass corners. Todays’ guests are encouraged to celebrate age-old rituals, from sinking into garnet velveteen armchairs by an elaborate wooden fireplace and dining upon fluted sapphire-hued banquettes, to bathing within the generously sized marble bathrooms before slumbering amongst curved bedhead embraces. Whilst the wilderness beckons with ample outdoor activities, it’s tempting to linger in the plush private lounge rooms.
Suite-Me-Up: Dotting the upper levels, the 25 suites feature pressed metal ceilings, cocooning arched parquetry shelves and softly upholstered furnishings.
