This is a unique place to stay. Hanworth is not a hotel, or a B&B. It is, unfortunately, not suitable for families and almost all rooms are single occupancy - although there are 4 rooms suitable for double occupancy. If you are independent and travelling, working or studying , love to be surrounded by history and want comfortable, and affordable accommodation in the city, Hanworth might just be for you. The price quoted is a room rate to stay at Hanworth - there are 21 rooms available in this magnificent homestead.
You will have access to all the beautiful parts of Hanworth (courtyard, garden, lounge room aka ballroom, dining room, pavilion, front grassy lawn and more). There are rooms with televisions to relax in, the beautiful front garden (picnic rugs and weights/pilates mats are available), the citrus grove or internal courtyard which is quiet and green or the pavilion where you can watch TV or relax. The internet is available from all parts of Hanworth. There are just some beautiful cosy corners and verandah areas where you will be happy curled up with a book or magazine and a coffee (or sipping on a glass of our beautiful local wines). There is a guest coffee/tea area where you can just help yourself at any time.
Our beautiful caretakers are on site and the hosts Marisa and Michelle are here during the day to help you settle in, find your feet and answer any questions. They will give you a tour on arrival and help you settle in quickly.
Hanworth is a mix of mostly residents, working, living and studying in Brisbane. The atmosphere is quiet, relaxed but guests are welcome. Hanworth has a strict no flame policy.
After being in the corporate world for many years as a CEO, I took a break to develop accommodation and in 2012 took on my biggest challenge to date, the restoration of historic Hanworth House, one of Brisbane’s oldest properties which was restored in honour of my beautiful mother Romana who passed away in 2012 from ovarian cancer. Just weeks from opening in March 2013 a fire destroyed 80% of this magnificent house so the journey started again.
I love to share Hanworth with other women as I am committed to the advancement of women especially through my work with Zonta International, the WANTZ committee and as an ambassador for the Womens Legal Service.
I believe that we should all do what we love. I love Hanworth and am very proud of the special place and community we are creating here.
