Hillview Heritage Hotel 

Set in the heart of the beautiful Southern Highlands, the commanding summit that gives Hillview it’s name offers magnificent views of valleys, rivers, and picturesque sunsets. Several rooms in the estate offer incredible opportunities for cocktail parties or family dinners, from the beautiful sitting room to the lavish wooden dining room complete with massive stone fireplace. However, the beauty of Hillview is not only reflected in its luscious surroundings, but in the decades of history held within its very walls. The exact date of the initial building of Hillview is undetermined, however it can be speculated that the original construction took place in the mid-1860s. Although small and quaint, the Victorian detailing and prime location made Hillview an ideal prospect for what was to come. Purchased in 1882 by the government from R.P. Richardson, to be used as a Vice-Regal holiday residence, Hillview offered a country escape for Governors fleeing the demanding city life in Sydney. Hillview has housed many royal guests, including the Prince of Wales, Prince Edward, and Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Come experience the elegance and beauty they did, and immerse yourself in the living history that is Hillview Heritage Hotel.
