The Hughenden

Last updated: 31 October, 2022

Long before the term ‘boutique hotel’ entered the language there was The Hughenden – a charming country villa located in one of Sydney’s wealthiest suburbs. It’s the sort of place that wealthy graziers might have once used as their city address.

A makeover has brought it into the 21st Century, with modern bathrooms, stylish interiors and the latest digital gizmos. Some of the rooms are truly hobbit-size, while the grander suites offer open fireplaces and kitchenettes. For Victorian charm Sydney-style, The Hughenden is in a league of its own.

The location is central and convenient – half way between downtown Sydney city and Bondi Beach in the other direction, easily accessed by bus or taxi.

If want to be somewhere quieter, more genteel, out of the main city hubbub, yet close to all of the main sights, this is a great choice.

Surrounding area

Woollahra is a leafy and posh suburb of lovely old Victorian houses, with a smattering of upmarket cafes, shops and pubs mixed in.

Centennial Park is just across the road and the Sydney Cricket Ground is within walking distance.

Sadly, the arrival of Westfield mega mall at Bondi Junction has sucked much of the life out of nearby Oxford Street, once Sydney’s fashion hub. Today, Woollahra is posher than ever
