PEP­PERS SILO HO­TEL, LAUNCE­S­TON

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - SNAPSHOT -

Built in the 1960s as grain brought pros­per­ity to the area, the si­los of Launce­s­ton have stood empty for the past decade — tow­er­ing

35 me­tres over the pic­turesque Ta­mar River. Now, they have been given new life, with a $30 mil­lion makeover that has turned them into a 108-room, nine-storey ho­tel. The gen­er­ously sized rooms are fur­nished with lo­cally made fur­ni­ture, and art through­out the ho­tel fea­tures the si­los in var­i­ous in­car­na­tions. You’ll also want to make the ac­quain­tance of the ‘concierge’ — Archie the black labrador, who lives at the ho­tel and is al­ways on hand to greet guests and help keep the night staff com­pany.

89–91 Lind­say Street, Launce­s­ton; www.pep­pers.com.au.
