Guest House bedroom at the Queen of the Murchsion

The historic Queen of the Murchison Guest House and Cafe is waiting to accommodate you. When you are traveling along the Great Northern Highway relax and spend a day or two in the historic gold mining town of Cue. This luxury two-story, historic building, was formally the Capitol Hotel, which was built in 1938. It is now a Guest House providing overnight and holiday accommodation.

The main original building was constructed in the grand style of two storey double-brick and iron roof, with extensive use of jarrah throughout and huge public rooms with high ceilings. Guest facilities include an outdoor garden area and secure off-street parking. Excellent home-cooked meals are available, offering old fashioned service in a relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy air conditioning in summer or dine around the log fire in winter.

Joyce and Darryl encourage guests to treat their home as your own whilst their guests.

A quiet drink on the veranda in the evenings chatting with other guests and your hosts is the perfect enjoyable end to your day of exploring Cue.
