A GRACEFUL RENOVATION
For the last two years running, The Old Clare Hotel has won the annual best boutique hotel award presented by AUSTRALIAN GOURMET TRAVELLER magazine.
Stretching across two iconic heritage-listed buildings —The Clare Hotel pub and the Carlton & United Breweries Administration Building—the 62 room boutique hotel has been constructed with obsessive attention to aesthetics and concern for retaining the interesting features of both buildings. Besides its guestrooms, The Old Clare Hotel provides three restaurants, rooftop bars and a swimming pool. The renovation keeps the rich details of both historical buildings: the bricks, the cement surface and the old beams, while the old design elements are redesigned and absord into the brand new look. The cohesion of the old and new gives the hotel a historical charm which is one of the many reasons why numerous creative people with interior design, fashion and lifestyle industry's backgrounds love this hotel.
