The hotel is open for dinner 364 days a year - bookings are recommended to avoid disappointment.

Located at the back of the Hotel, are the original schist stables. You may have already seen them without knowing – this is where Speight’s filmed their “Good On Ya Mate” adverts – the most memorable being “The Two Tickets to the Ball”. This is available for functions, and is open during the day for you to come and enjoy some of Central’s original history.

Come and enjoy some "Historic Hospitality".
