The Robertson Hotel, was built in 1924 and opened it's doors as Hotel Robertson. Originally it boasted a nine hole golf course, two tennis courts, croquet, lawn bowls, billiards, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, and an onsite mechanic who tended to guest's cars during their stay. Superior quality mattresses rest upon hand crafted Egyptian bed frames and heads – the only of their kind in the Southern Hemisphere, while each handmade bedside table features beautifully embellished feet, in keeping with the ambience of the Hotel’s history. Upon each nightstand sits a bedside lamp made from solid carved marble, adding to the opulence of each room.
Each room or suite features soft, dimmable LED down lights, which can be adjusted to suit the desired ambience of your stay. The bathrooms remain traditional to the hotel’s history, with beautiful black and white mosaic tiled floors, exposed piping and original 1920s subway tiles, which will transport you to another era. You may find it hard to tear yourself away from your room or suite, especially given the hydronic heating, which sets the perfect temperature at any time of year (even on the coldest of winter nights). Your flat screen Smart TV connects to our free WIFI, so you can access your any or all of your Internet entertainment accounts - although, with each room boasting a spectacularly unique view, you might find it more enjoyable to gaze out the window for hours at a time.
