Known as the Railway Hotel when it opened in 1852, and later as the Great Southern Hotel, this stately showpiece looms large over Eyre Sq. Reception is to your right as you enter the imposing lobby; rooms facing the square come at a premium. On the 5th floor there's a spa and an adjacent rooftop hot tub. Rates include breakfast.
