Immerse yourself in the Kalgoorlie of old! ‘Allora’ means ‘affection’ in Italian and was aptly named by JD Connolly. James Daniel built Allora. James Daniel gave Allora House as an engagement present to his wife. How lucky was she!
Allora is quiet, relaxing, and homely, a peaceful oasis for both travellers and business professionals.
Allora House has three secure queen rooms sharing a well-appointed lounge, bathroom, and kitchenette. The guest’s area looks out to a relaxing garden and is easily accessed from the car parking.
Allora House is only two blocks from the main street, a block from the train station, and a short walk to most attractions.
To avoid disappointment and missing out, confirm your booking today.
Allora is the Italian word for affection and fittingly named when the house was built by JD Connolly and offered as a gift from the owner to his future wife as an engagement present.
Allora house was built between 1897 and 1940. The guest enjoys the fully renovated 1940s area of 3 queen-sized bedrooms, all connected to the shared lounge and dining room. The kitchenette and bathroom also can be accessed from the shared space. We have restored the area with handmade jarrah doors, high ceilings, and antique furniture from the period 1900 to 1940s styles.
Please note Allora house does not provide breakfast, though there is a well-equipped kitchenette and a supermarket a block away from us. The kitchenette is modern and well-appointed, with a microwave, sink, kettle, toaster, iron, ironing board, cutlery, crockery, full-size fridge, cutting board, cupboard storage for your groceries, knives, bottle opener, salad bowl, etc, to enjoy making your meals.
Each bedroom has a flat-screen TV, reverse cycle air conditioning, and a modern ensemble bed to accompany restored furniture sympathetic to the period of the house. We have been fortunate, sourcing furniture that spent its life in the Goldfields. Our linen is Australian-made a sustainably produced.
Our lounge/dining area has a chaise lounge, lounge suite, full-size TV and sound system, coffee table, and a dining table with four chairs. The lounge/dining area overlooks the garden. We have a wide veranda opening onto a sheltered garden. We grow heritage plants, seasonal herbs, and vegetables to enjoy as a backdrop. Lovely to watch the changes of the season within the garden. We enjoy relaxing in antique folding chairs and garden benches.
Making your visit more comfortable we have free wifi, maps of our area and tourism information. We enjoy greeting our guests, sharing information on the heritage, good food, fun things to do, and information about our wider region.
If you would like to book all three bedrooms, please book all rooms, or alternately make contact to see if it is possible.
Located two blocks from the main street, one block from the railway station, over the road from restaurants, and others a short walk. We are a quiet place to while away the hours and enjoy an immersion into history. We have renovated it back to the original feel of the house and era. We like showing off the depth and diversity of our rich heritage and our region.
