Capturing the essence of yesteryear, Guildford River Retreat, a privately owned and operated Boutique Hotel offering personalized services in the heart of Guildford Hertiage precinct. Well appointed rooms, the welcoming grounds and building attracts guests who appreciate serenity, the essence of country with the convenience of the city.
Guildford River Retreat, originally known as Rohais, was built in 1897 in the Federation Queen Anne style, during the West Australian gold boom. The house was built for William Francis Guppy as a family residence. Over the years Rohais has continued to be a part of the Guildford community, as the Wells Rest Home (1964 - 1981) and Foothills School (1982 - 2000).
Now known as Guildford River Retreat, this Heritage listed Federation house has been restored to its original standing to provide accommodation at an elegant residential address of Guildford. The property boasts a rural setting with gardens and walkways down to the Swan River, yet right in the heart of Guildford, the gateway to the Swan Valley and Wine Region
