Abbey of the Roses is an enchanting Victorian Gothic style guesthouse in Warwick Queensland, circa 1891, with all the grandeur of an english castle. Crafted from local sandstone by stonemasons for the Sisters of Mercy, with gorgeous lancet windows with their peaked arches and colourful stained glass, this magnificent building has retained its original old world charm. Now providing unique boutique accommodation for couples, this country manor house is an idyllic romantic getaway and a divine venue for the exchanging of vows and promises for the future. With a private chapel and stunning variety of rooms to choose from, some with four poster beds, you'll delight in the historic charm of this whimsical castle-like former convent. Although there is no formal restaurant, private dining is available in the Bursary Dining Room by prior arrangement several days in advance, and morning and lunch High Teas are very popular. Set in two beautiful acres, the heritage listed Abbey of the Roses is surrounded by stunning gardens full of aromatic plants such as lavender, blossom trees and a formal rose garden, with the surprise of a giant chess set on the lawns.
