What You’ll Love

The Hotel – History meets luxury

Q Station has a rich historical past that attracts guests wanting to uncover its mysteries and learn about Australia's history while staying in an idyllic setting with its own secluded beach. Once the quarantine station for NSW, all passengers settling in the state had to pass through the site that the hotel now sits on. Q Station offers both historical and ghost tours for visitors wanting to learn more about the hotel's storied past.

Immerse yourself in history while enjoying all the comforts of your Deluxe Room featuring a queen bed and French doors leading out onto a furnished balcony where you can unwind and enjoy views of the hotel's tranquil grounds or historic buildings.

VIP UPGRADE: Wake up to dazzling harbour views when you upgrade to a Deluxe Harbourview room. Sit back and relax in one of the armchairs on your large shared balcony, as you watch the sun setting over the city skyline.

The Food – Daily breakfasts, barista-style coffees and a bottle of wine when you dine at the hotel's Boilerhouse restaurant

Start your day with daily buffet breakfast served at the onsite Views restaurant. As the name says, you will be able to take in beautiful views while you enjoy a range of hot dishes and fresh continental items. Your morning coffee fix will well and truly be barista-style experience, with espresso coffees included in your package throughout your stay.

If you don't feel like venturing out for dinner, you are invited to try the modern Australian creations of Executive Chef James Green, at the Boilerhouse restaurant. Indulge in his signature dish, Jack’s Creek Angus Short Rib, served with smoked eggplant, snow pea, soy mustard and horseradish, or try his famous ricotta gnocchi with heirloom tomatoes, accompanied by a complimentary bottle of wine.

Had overnight accomodation in deluxe room with ensuite. Room very comfortable with all amenities. Beautiful view over Sydney harbour from the comfy chairs outside the room. Breakfast was included, basic buffet but enough to satisfy. Dinner in the "boiler house" restaurant was very good. All staff on the property were super friendly and helpful. A variety of tours are offered for various aspects of the history (at a cost) on this occasion we did our own exploring. Well sign posted and a bus will pick you up and take you to the different sections with just a phone call. Will definitely stay again.

Hidden away and not very advertised but very interesting. It is great to see that a part of Australia’s history is being maintained, well done. It is amazing that this place actually is still standing after all this time. Well worth the walk around,
