Whitehall Guesthouse is a much loved building by all who stay, Your group has exclusive use of the building.
Very well located within the heart of beautiful Queenscliff and in a quiet residential street, very private.
It is very comfortable for smaller groups of 15 or more but can also accommodate larger groups (of up to 75), in over 35 bedrooms.
Whitehall is situated at 11 Learmonth Street, Queenscliff. Only a few minutes walk to the main street, the beaches and piers, the steam train.
The historic Guesthouse dates from the paddle-steamer era (the last Guesthouse built in Queenscliff) and has been restored specifically for groups of family/friends, work or any other group.
This unique property offers the space and freedom for small groups of 10 or more (to larger groups of up to 75 people), to enjoy each others company, and to explore the special historic fishing township of Queenscliff.
Ideal accommodation for the Blues Train events as it is located just up the road from the train station.
Catering options include bringing your own food,shopping when you get here, there is terrific fresh produce available locally, organising in house catering or eating out at local restaurants cafes and pubs.
A large commercial dishwasher and kitchen makes catering very easy and light work!, even for a large group.
Whitehall is ideal for Families and friends, but equally it is a great option for conferencing and work groups, and any community groups.
The Guesthouse sleeps up to 75 people (but don't be put off; it is equally good for smaller numbers of 15 plus) in 23 double bedrooms - all with queen-size beds - and 9 other bedrooms with a total of 20 single beds and 2 sets of bunk beds. Guests share 9 bathrooms, including 8 with showers and one with a bath.
We often have smaller family/friend groups, and they love the homely feel and personal space Whitehall gives. So if you are a small group - or a larger group, this is a great place to stay.
Children love the space and freedom it gives, inside and out, and the excitement on arrival is huge!
It is toddler friendly (under supervision!) with stair gates in place. Pets are considered at the discretion of the booking agent.
Doonas, pillows and extra blankets are supplied, and all bed and personal linen including towels are supplied at an extra charge (we do not provide an option of bringing your own linen, however some guests like to bring their own pillows and Doonas). Beds are not made, but can be on request.
Please note we have many happy groups celebrating occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, but we are not a loud party venue due to our location within a residential area and noise restrictions apply. Definitely no 'Hens Parties' 'Bucks nights' or end of year footy trips !.
We have had lots of different groups stay, and the response has been terrific:
"People are still talking about how amazed they were when they turned up and saw where we were staying, and how great the time there was."
"Thank you for your hospitality this past weekend as we celebrated the wedding.They were very grateful to you for your welcoming warmth. I was at Whitehall on Sunday and could see how happy everyone was together."
"We had a lovely stay at your Guesthouse and thank-you for your kind words. They are a lovely group to work with and they said they all enjoyed it".
"We all found Whitehall great, everyone had a great time and enjoyed that it felt homely and not all 'done up'.
