The Residences in Centennial Park are now open and are set to become a unique accommodation experience for locals and tourists alike.
The Residences, Centennial Park are two heritage cottages in Centennial Park which have been carefully restored and refurbished as boutique self-contained short-stay accommodation experiences.
The operator of these new facilities is the family behind The Hughenden Hotel, a well-established and well-renowned hotel in Woollahra.
“I am delighted to officially offer The Residences as a truly unique accommodation experience for locals or tourists to Sydney,” said Hughenden Hotel General Manager, James Ruben.
“These buildings are original, exquisite Victorian-style cottages that are being offered to the public to enjoy, and we will ensure no guest leaves without having a memorable time.”
The Residences will offer five-star full hotel service, modern amenities, WiFi, a breakfast of bespoke products, including locally-produced Centennial Park Honey from the Park’s own bee hives, and a boutique selection from acclaimed Vincent chef’s Todd Garrett and James Hird at The Hughenden.
Kim Ellis, Executive Director of Sydney’s Parklands and Botanic Gardens said: “The restoration and adaptive reuse of these historic cottages was a key project in the Centennial Park Master Plan 2040. To be able to engage a highly-respected local community partner to rejuvenate these more-or-less dormant heritage buildings is an outcome we are delighted with.
“As one of the world’s great parks, we now have an iconic offering that will enhance and support the long-term sustainability of these vital public spaces for the whole community. With horse riding, bike hire, native flora and fauna, formal gardens and a vibrant range of community events on the doorstep, these are set to become a truly iconic short-stay experience.”
