This is bed and breakfast accommodation in Goulburn that offers something different.

Mandelson’s is rich in history and is furnished with antiques from a bygone era but offers all of the modern conveniences. Mandelson’s is positioned in central Goulburn, just off the Hume Highway, and is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and tourist attractions.
Nathan Mandelson and his wife came to NSW in 1833 and opened an inn at Bungonia. In 1840 he purchased the Goulburn Hotel as well as two adjoining lots, pulled down the old structure and erected the two storey building known today asMandelson’s of Goulburn and set about making the hotel Goulburn’s premier social point. It was here that William Bradley (owner of the Goulburn Brewery & Steam Mills) and others met in 1846 to form the Goulburn to Sydney Rail Company and instigated the development of the first steam railway in Australia which opened in 1869. Mandelson was an astute businessman who bought gold from Braidwood, Turon and other diggings in the 1850s. After one trip he and Samuel Davis reportedly arrived in Goulburn from Braidwood with 1000 ounces of gold in their possession.
Today, Mandelson’s of Goulburn is accommodation at its very best. Mandelson’s is an historic building that has been meticulously restored to its original elegant beauty.
