The Lion King Go
A complete renovation and restoration of the property was completed in March 2009, turning this disused former dockworkers hotel in one of Newcastle's rapidly developing harbourside suburbs, into a beautiful and modern guest house with its own, very popular, wine bar/cafe/restaurants.
Owner and Head Chef, Scott Webster, has returned to his home town of Newcastle to offer patrons the benefit of his 30 years experience working in and owning some of the best restaurants in the world. A stone's throw from the harbour with its new yacht club, the local fishing fleet and Fisherman's Co-op, Carrington Place offers guests high quality guest house style accommodation and a special food and wine experience, all at reasonable prices and close to the harbour, inner city and beaches.
Room tariff includes a complimentary continental breakfast. House guests also have access to a private lounge area with internet access, tea and coffee making facilities, large screen television, newspapers and magazines. One room has ensuite and disabled facilities. Note: The majority of rooms do not have ensuite bathrooms but have access to high quality shared bathrooms.
