Hotel Kurrajong, while looking graceful and elegant, has all of the modern necessities so often overlooked in hotels. There are power points in practical places, a shower tap that you don’t have to scald your arms to reach, quiet air conditioning and a cosy lobby that immediately makes you feel welcome. With a range of beautifully decorated event spaces – including my personal favourite, the lawn and garden – Hotel Kurrajong is just as delightful as a events venue and would suit anything up to about 200 people.
