About us

Built in 1889 as the Royal Hotel, this magnificent building was gutted by fire on the 28th August 1938. Later on that year the building was rebuilt and named the New Royal Hotel. The current owner, Toni Heaney purchased the property in December 2006 and converted the hotel to a hip 60’s style café and accommodation country establishment.

Dine either inside the chic café, on the veranda or alfresco under the magnificent willow tree. If it is a quick caffeine hit you need, then the Royal also offers take away tea, coffee and delicious cakes, slices and biscuits.
