Stay in the Heart of Historic Nimmitabel

cat on the stairs at the Royal Arms BNB, Nimmitabel

Upstairs at the Royal Arms are our five guest bedrooms. Each bedroom is decorated in its own style.
Double, twin share and single rooms are available. Cots also available on request.


The Royal Arms B&B is the former Royal Hotel, built in the 1850s in typical Aussie pub style with public bar and dining areas on the ground floor, bedrooms on the first floor, and verandahs facing the street.

Now the Royal Arms Guesthouse, we have reinstated the bedrooms on the first floor as guest accommodation, their original purpose over 150 years ago. We've added some modern features though, to make your stay a little more comfortable. We no longer offer public bar facilities as it was shut down almost a hundred years ago in 1927 for trading out of hours. These days we suggest that you "BYO" and we'll provide the complimentary glasses; or you head to Nimmitabel's remaining pub, otherwise known as the Federal Hotel, which is a short walk down the road. We like to think that visiting the Federal is part of the "Nimmitabel Experience"!

Our accommodation is broken into two suites. Each suite has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a sitting room with an open fireplace. In each suite one bedroom has a double bed, the other bedroom has twin share beds. Depending on your personal preference and situation, you have the choice of shared or en-suite rooms. The en-suite option involves us closing off the second bedroom so that you have the entire suite to yourself. Each bed is antique, in keeping with our heritage theme. We do have small folding beds for children aged 2-11years, check availability on booking. The suites can be interconnected.

All guest bedrooms have tea and coffee making facilities, electric blanket, electric heating, WiFi, toys and books for all ages, and good conversation on tap.
