Even people who have visited the Hotel before are surprised to learn that we have FOUR gallery spaces that are open to the public 7 days a week, 12-5pm (with occasional exceptions due to bookings). You don’t usually think about walking into a hotel and wandering around where the hotel rooms are but here we encourage it! Whether you go for a walk after lunch or grab a latte and take it with you, the hotel is yours to explore.
Here are some of our current and upcoming exhibitions:

Our 3rd annual Pride exhibition, That’s So Gay, will explore notions of queer gender identity in order to highlight and challenge the overly simplistic view of “man” and “woman”.
