Court room

Our guest lounge and dining room is the original court room where cases were heard before a circuit magistrate until 1930s. The last case to be heard was rape case. The well known government architect of the day, James Barnet (see below), left his unique design stamp on many of the courtroom’s features.

Meals are served in the courtroom or on the front verandah in good weather. The large open fireplace is especially inviting in winter. You are welcome to use the court room  if you self-cater as well.

The court room is exclusively for guest use. It leads directly to the prisoner exercise yard, linked by a corridor which guests love to use, taking the route of many prisoners before them.

The court room has an extensive range of books about the area, many written by locals. The extensive DVD collection is for you to view in the comfort of your room. A CD player and small collection of CD’s is a fixture as well. We have board games and children’s activities also.
