No runway for this Macqueen
From the moment I stepped into the Segenhoe Inn, I was welcomed with an ambiance of foregone times. Contemporary country living mingled with historic Victoriana pieces, this heritage property (built ca. 1837) echoes narratives of colonial Australia from corner to corner. A beautiful and intimate boutique hotel, the Segenhoe boasts original architecture encasing a storehouse of antiques and décor to keep with its olde-worlde charm.
Hunter Blue
The mirror on the wall has been embedded with blue and white crockery fragments found during renovation around the Inn could very well date back to the 1800's.
Its management is personable and hospitable, offering superlative service and dining - while each room is maintained and decorated attractively - taking inspiration from the legacy of its founder, Sir Thomas Potter Macqueen (1791–1854). The Segenhoe makes a wonderful getaway for couples and friends, and provides an opportunity to surround yourself with the intricacies of a beautiful culture.
