Oceania's Leading Luxury Hotel Villa 2020 & 2021 in the annual World Travel Awards

Australasia’s Leading Luxury Hotel Villa 2016, 2017 & 2018 in the annual World Travel Awards.

Constructed in the 1950s, this three-bedroom character villa has been recently restored to the highest standards, offering the ultimate in exclusive luxury accommodation. Set adjacent to the main building The Residence offers the best of both worlds – access to full hotel services, but the privacy and exclusiveness of a private villa.  The decor and design ethos from designer Neil McLachlan was to retain the period character of the property and create a sense of timeless classicism.

Joined to the main hotel via a linkway (corridor) with security cameras and motion sensors for lights and power efficiency. From this linkway, the entrance to The Residence is controlled by swipe card only. Once inside The Residence offers three floors of luxury including;

On the ground floor are the kitchen, library, dining room and private outdoor garden/courtyard

On the first floor is the Hennessey Suite and the Bowden Room, which can be connected (or isolated as required) with a Drawing Room

On the second floor is the Garden Loft Room

The Residence is available in a number of configurations, with the three en-suite bedrooms being able to be rented individually or combined as either a one-bedroom suite, a two-bedroom suite with one shared living room, or exclusive use of the entire three-bedroom villa. The latter option includes the exclusive use of the ground floor kitchen, dining room and library as well as access to the hotel gardens.

In addition to luxury furniture and fittings in keeping with the style of the era such as wooden wall panelling and ceiling batons and marble benchtops, The Residence has been updated with the latest technology that has been discretely and tastefully incorporated to ensure guests do not lack modern comforts.

The building is fully insulated with triple-glazed windows, an air-conditioning system that pulls fresh air from outside and filters out impurities before heating or cooling to the desired temperature, underfloor bathroom heating, demist mirrors, ultra-high-definition TVs, SKY Select with over 50 channels, touch-sensitive light switches and a full automation system capable of controlling heating, sound, lighting and curtains all from a user-friendly remote or wall touch-screen.

In addition to the above, the master suite has a built-in humidity control system – ideal for recovery after long air-travel, a gas fireplace, Nespresso coffee machine, and a dining table for up to eight guests.

What our patrons say

Welcoming and helpful staff. Delicious dining at 50 Bistro with great kids menu. Lovely cocktails too for harried parents! Comfortable beds. Love the teddy bears at turn down! Great central location next to Hagley Park, Botanical Gardens and the Museum.

Service is excellent with well-appointed rooms and perfect location. We even got a free teddy bear to take away which was an unexpected bonus! Its the small things right. Great coffee and rooms were recently renovated, bed was first class.

I stayed at the George recently and was impressed with the impeccable service given by all staff members. Friendly, polished and professional, they were a credit to the hotel. The evening meal at the Bistro was excellent, and I was surprised to realise that the hotel does a turn down service - complete with chocolate and "George", a little momento teddy bear to take home (which I did,I just couldn't resist!). It's a wonderful hotel, close to the city, yet set in a very green and peaceful part of town. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and plan to next time in a personal capacity with my husband.
