Craig's Royal Hotel
As one of the first truly grand hotels in the colony, Craig's
Royal Hotel on Lydiard Street was born from the wealth of the
Australian gold rush era. Established in 1853, Craig's soon set the
standards for unparalleled hospitality and service. Hosting poets,
princes and prime ministers over its 155 year history, the hotel is
a true icon of the Victorian period. Now, after nearly six years
extensive restoration, the magnificent accommodation, dining,
meeting and banquet facilities are re-establishing Craig's as the
finest boutique heritage hotel in Australia. Following its
restoration, the hotel now boasts 41 furnished and decorated guest
rooms and suites. Craig's Royal Hotel adds touches of elegance and
refinement to every event - from grand occasions to intimate
gatherings. Enjoy a candlelight dinner party in the rustic
bluestone cellar or a wedding in the elegant Grand Dining Room.
Each promises memories to last a lifetime.
