Whitehall Guesthouse - Groups 15-75 exclusive use

Bedrooms 38
Property type guest house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Whitehall Guesthouse is a much loved building by all who stay, Your group has exclusive use of the building.

Very well located within the heart of beautiful Queenscliff and in a quiet residential street, very private.

It is very comfortable for smaller groups of 15 or more but can also accommodate larger groups (of up to 75), in over 35 bedrooms.

Whitehall is ideal for Families and friends, but equally it is a great option for conferencing and work groups, and any community groups.

We have just recently installed a full disabled bathroom to ensure the building is able to be enjoyed by everyone who are part of a group.

Whitehall is situated at 11 Learmonth Street, Queenscliff. Only a few minutes walk to the main street, the beaches and piers, the steam train.

The historic Guesthouse (1927) dates from the paddle-steamer era (the last Guesthouse built in Queenscliff) and has been restored specifically for groups of family/friends, work or any other group.

This unique property offers the space and freedom for small groups of 10 or more (to larger groups of up to 75 people), to enjoy each others company, and to explore the special historic fishing township of Queenscliff.

We have had a few fantastic memorable weekend weddings, but note we are not the reception venue! (noise restrictions apply). We accept all wedding groups.

Catering options include bringing your own food,shopping when you get here, there is terrific fresh produce available locally, organising in house catering (we have a list) or eating out at local restaurants cafes and pubs. A large commercial dishwasher and kitchen makes catering very easy and light work!, even for a large group.

The accommodation

The Guesthouse sleeps up to 75 people (but don't be put off; it is equally good for smaller numbers of 15 plus) in 23 double bedrooms - all with queen-size beds - and 9 other bedrooms with a total of 20 single beds and 2 sets of bunk beds. Guests share 9 bathrooms, including 8 with showers and one with a bath.

Doonas, pillows and extra blankets are supplied, and all bed and personal linen including towels are supplied at no extra charge (we do not provide an option of bringing your own linen, however some guests like to bring their own pillows and Doonas). Beds are not made, but can be on request.

Please note we have many happy groups celebrating occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, but we are not a loud party venue due to our location within a residential area and noise restrictions apply. Definitely no 'Hens Parties' 'Bucks nights' or end of year footy trips !.

Guests' comments

We have had lots of different groups stay, and the response has been terrific:

"People are still talking about how amazed they were when they turned up and saw where we were staying, and how great the time there was."

"Thank you for your hospitality this past weekend as we celebrated the wedding.They were very grateful to you for your welcoming warmth. I was at Whitehall on Sunday and could see how happy everyone was together."

"We had a lovely stay at your Guesthouse and thank-you for your kind words. They are a lovely group to work with and they said they all enjoyed it".

"We all found Whitehall great, everyone had a great time and enjoyed that it felt homely and not all 'done up'.

Great get together in grand accommodation. Good kitchen and amenities (could have had more bottle openers, glasses & platters) with good dishwasher & central bench table that fitted 12 people around it for food prep & yakking.

We are a group of Sewing Friends who have a weekend away each year. The sleeping accommodation was very warm and comfortable. The living room was ideal for our social outlet and sewing together. Most enjoyable stay. We ate in and also dined out on some occasions. We will be back next year. All the girls thoroughly enjoyed their stay.

Outstanding group accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Whitehall provided us with everything we needed for a group of approx 30 friends (including small children). So much space for children to run and explore, and the kitchen and large lounge/dining space was just perfect to all relax and socialise together. Winter in Queensliff is chilly - but Whitehall is so well heated.

We stayed at Whitehall over the weekend with a group of 30 people. It was such a fantastic space with rooms all over the place for time apart. Walking distance to everywhere, Whitehall is truly excellent accommodation. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, it was incredibly affordable! We won't hesitate to go back in the future!
