Hotel Facilities

A visit to the West Coast is not complete without a visit to the old Theatre Royal Hotel.

The Theatre Royal is not just a hotel; it is a social centre. It is here you can meet up with locals and see why the West Coast is renowned for its hospitality. Visitors and locals love the inviting Victorian atmosphere. With its warmth, soft lighting, open stone fire, candles and memorabilia, it is a pleasure to visit.

Visitors can enjoy our convivial bar area or two spacious, covered, outdoor verandahs. These areas also feature enclosed lawns providing safe play areas for children to roam and enjoy, while parents relax with a meal, cold beer, fresh barista-made coffee or one of our comprehensive range of teas.

For guests’ convenience we have a lockable bicycle shed, off street parking and a private lounge.


West Coast Wilderness Cycle Trail


The Theatre Royal is proud to once again be a venue which hosts live entertainment on a regular basis. With its excellent acoustics, we are a venue designed for performances of every variety. We have a small stage and a fine old piano from 1876. The Hotel has all been rewired for sound quality.

High Tea

In keeping with our Victorian era, we take great delight in featuring our High Teas. These are on a Wednesday and Saturday from 2 pm until 4 pm. These can be served either for a group, or individually.

A tempting range of delicious sweet treats and tiny sandwiches are presented. All are beautifully displayed on elegant cake stands, and served in bone china teacups.

Guests are encouraged to set the scene with flamboyant hats, pearls and furs. Their waiting staff and entertainers will be likewise attired. Have fun whilst being serenaded by a variety of piano players and other artists.

Coffee is available if preferred.

Price per person $29.90
