As soon as you walk into this classic colonial-style manor, you’ll know you want to stay. Macquarie Manor was built in 1875 as a surgeon’s operating office and residence. Extra rooms were added in 1950. Thick carpets and double-glazed windows keep the place very quiet, even though it’s on the main road, 2 blocks from the central bus terminal. Rooms, which vary enormously and include single rooms, are comfortable and elegantly furnished. One room is suitable for people with disabilities. Check out the delightful dining room and the drawing room complete with old couches and a grand piano. Smoking is not permitted.
