We enjoyed very much staying at the Theatre Hotel. The building and decoration is impecable, portraying really well how posh rooms used to look like during the gold rush days. Our room was very comfortable with a king size bed, tea and coffee facilities, and a bathroom with a strong shower. The food provided at their restaurant was delicious.

Our large group of 26 was accommodated at the Theatre Royal Hotel for one night during our WCWT bike tour. We occupied all of the Miners Cottages, Mary's Cottage and McEnaneys Cottage, and every one commented how comfortable their beds and all the facilities were. The decor of each room is a period delight and echoes the colonial history of the hotel and area. We had arranged for full catering and every aspect of our dinner, breakfast and packed lunch was superb. Not only that but the friendly, helpful and attentive customer service by every member of staff we encountered was exemplary. This is a quality and special accommodation and dining experience and is highly recommended.

Staying at the Theatre Royal Hotel was an absolute delight. The rooms are beautifully restored and spotlessly clean. The wonderful Ripley made sure we were comfortable and informed about the local area. We would love to stay again sometime.

Stayed in a beautiful cottage. Would have been ideal if self catering. Nice pub associated with hotel but food very average especially for price. Much preferred burgers and chips at Prospectors food cart next door, which were exceptional.

Thank you for exceeding our expectations at your lovely hotel. After 70 k’s of biking the (absolutely awesome) West Coast Wilderness trail, the hospitality, comfortable beds, hot showers and delicious food was more than appreciated. Lovely building & interesting history. Fabulous staff members looked after all our needs, getting the balance of formality and friendliness just right. Thanks also for letting us drop off an advance bag of fresh clothes. Much appreciated. Thanks again & best wishes to you all. We will be back for sure.
