Point of difference

This historic hotel, built in 1841 and ideally located at the gateway to the state's Swan Valley region, has provided a welcome resting place for travellers and visitors. Registered with the National Trust, the Rose and Crown offers accommodation in 28 ensuite lodge rooms and three elegant spa suites in the main building.

The Rose and Crown in historic Guildford is WA's oldest operating Hotel and is situated in the historic Perth suburb of Guildford. Guests may choose to dine from the a-la-carte menu in the 1841 Restaurant, dine al fresco in the atmospheric garden (which includes the first rose planted in WA) or enjoy a delicious meal while lounging at leisure in the Posh Convict restaurant and bar. The covered deck bar area is the perfect spot for a warm day, and features misters to cool things down and a simple menu of pub grub. Dating back to WA's early convict days, the Rose and Crown harbours a number of interesting tales from its past. Folklore has it that the tunnel which lies underneath the 160 year old floor leads to the river and a working well, where fresh water was once used to produce the hotel's beer.
