The Carrington Inn of Bungendore
1 week ago
2017 Christmas at the Carrington in July We would like to thank all the groups who have chosen the Carrington Inn for their Christmas in July celebrations this year. We also appreciate the Uniting Church Seniors for sharing some of the photos from their luncheon last Friday. Our staff particularly appreciated the guests’ comments that group organiser Kay B. shared with us below: Good morning Richard,I just want to share with you some of the comments about the Uniting Church Seniors visit for Christmas in July lunch last Friday. I am very sorry I did not come as I had arranged it with you and then I was away. However, I went to Church yesterday and received a great deal of praise about the dinner, so I want to pass it on to you and your staff.• Better than Bowral or anywhere else we have ever been…..• Amazing value for money………• Beautiful room, long and narrow with dark furniture and a fire…. • Really reminded me of England……… • Kind and gentle and efficient waiters…………… • Meal too big, but so delicious I had to eat it all……….• The meat was so soft and melt in my mouth……….• Like home cooking but better………..• Gold cutlery!!!!!!!!• Bonbons and lovely decorations and china……….. • Curtains threaded with gold………..• Couldn’t believe such value for money……………• They even included the drinks………… So a very big thank you. This group has been active for 21 years and I don’t remember many outings which have received such an enthusiastic response. I think I am safe in saying we will be back - 13th July 2018. I will make sure I don’t miss it next time. Very many thanks and best wishes. Kay ... See MoreSee Less
Welcome to the Carrington Inn Photo Gallery.
It is our wish to share with you pictures from around the Inn at different times and seasons. If you are thinking of visiting us they will give you a hint of what you can look forward to. If you have visited us, they will help you recall your visit.
For 131 years, the Carrington has been a work in progress; constantly evolving to fit the changing needs and expectations of travellers. The Inn does not aspire to have 5 so-called Stars, unless they are in the Southern Cross that hangs above it at night. No, the Inn is about wholesome and genuine hospitality that makes people feel comfortable and welcome when they are away from home. Hospitality that makes them feel better when they leave than when they came.
In these images we hope you’ll see that commitment.
Providing quality service comes naturally to our staff at The Carrington. Come visit the Inn and enjoy our authentic care for your comfort. Care, without a huge price attached, which is uncommon in this 21st Century.
Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by a warm and congenial Guest Service staff member, who is eager to get you settled as soon as possible. As you walk under an open verandah to your room, you’ll begin to shrug off the burdens of work or travel.
On the way to your room with windows that open to fresh air and the sound of native birds, you may smell fresh mown grass and fragrant vintage roses and lavender growing along the path for you.
After you refresh in your room, stroll through Elm Park, the Inn’s private garden on your way to The TOM WILLS Tavern for some refreshing drinks and tapas share-plates, or the Wintergarden dining rooms for a wholesome and satisfying meal. A Guest Service Assistant would be happy to provide you a tour of the Inn and share with you some of the background information about the 130-year-old property.
