We offer accommodation with an artistic outlook. Our apartment, re-built in 2011, is a completely re-worked 1890 end terrace. The architect has made the most of abundant natural light and ventilation. The bedroom overlooks our soaring atrium which rises 30 feet and showcases some great contemporary Australian art.
Setting the scene for your exploration of Newtown's galleries, shops, music venues, theatres, & restaurants (and exclusively for the enjoyment of guests), is a retrospective by Australian artist Tony Twigg.
(In conjunction with Tony's SLOT gallery, we also host the DIP 24/7 Street Art project in our old Shopfront window.)
After a big day out you may want to cosy up in front of our burning log gas fire, and further research the next day's destinations, or Skype home, on our 42" internet connected LCD TV's. Each room in your apartment has built in stereo ceiling speakers, with their own volume controls and the ability to switch between different sound sources; (EG MP3 for the bedroom and radio for the Den).
