Farmers Home Hotel, Northam
Joint Category Winner
For over 150-years, the Farmers Home Hotel has been at the heart of the Northam community and a place of welcome and comfort for everyone from pioneers to premiers. This rich heritage served as inspiration throughout the hotel’s multi-million dollar restoration and conservation, which resurrected the Northam landmark on the same principles as which it was founded, to reopen as a modern boutique hotel, wine bar and Dome Café.
This layering of old and new is celebrated in the hotel’s design and interpretation. Contemporary design, both cutting-edge and understated, provides a new level of amenity and sophistication while ensuring the building’s federation grandeur and heritage features take centre stage to reveal the hotel’s remarkable story.
The Farmers Home Hotel was awarded the prestigious Gerry Gauntlett Award which recognises excellence in the area of conservation or adaptation of a place.
