Ardenlee is a beautifully restored Victorian residence built at the end of the Gold Rush era.

It is located close to Sovereign Hill, Eureka Stockade. Bridge Mall shopping centre and many restaurants and bistros are within easy walking distance.

A delicious cooked breakfast awaits you each morning in the guest dining room. There are three bedrooms with private en-suites. Relax in front of the fire in the guest lounge while the grandfather clock chimes softly in the corner.

Food - Glorious Food. Breakfast is what it is all about!

The menu includes favourites such as a traditional English Breakfast, Eggs Benedict, and Marian's mouth watering Omelettes. Add in your cereals, breads, English muffins, crumpets, spreads, juices, fruit and so forth it is easy to see why no-one goes hungry.

For lunch and dinner there are clubs, pubs and restaurants all just a short stroll from the front door.

Ardenlee was built at the end of the Gold Rush era around 1861. It was built by the church of England and in the late 1950's it was sold to the catholic church. The Patrician nuns lived in the house. A very "sixties" school room and dormitories was squeezed into the land behind the property. Here the nuns taught and trained teachers for the local catholic schools.

Marian spotted Patrician House, as it was then named in 2008. It had been empty for over a year. She saw the potential in the tired old house and it was purchased in February of that year.

Marian has skilfully incorporated the best decorative features of the era in terms of beautiful period wall papers, ornate ceiling roses, classic lighting and wide Victorian cornices with their distinctive deep gutters and detailed paintwork.
