Hermitage Room

Arrive to the height of grandeur through a magnificent private entrance rising up from Macquarie Street, greeted with a portico enclosed by sandstone pillars and archways. Your guests will be awed as they step inside the pristine lobby complete with golden walls, luminous halo chandeliers, baby grand piano and marble flooring – which can be effortlessly transformed into a dancefloor for evening parties.

Recently refurbished by award-winning Australian designers DBI Design, Hermitage Room is awash with natural light from soaring windows, and features brilliant white walls and slim Tuscan columns.

Added to the original 1851 Treasury Building at the turn of the 19th century, this room garners its glamorous décor and name from its illustrious history as the ‘strong room’ which stored New South Wales’ prized gold.
