Adding to the more sophisticated, up-market option Hogwartz introduced with its Coach House in 2010, the Stables are two new self-contained units available since December 2012. These two contemporary-styled studio rooms have been completely remodeled and renovated and now feature en-suite bathrooms and private kitchen facilities along with a high standard of comfort provided by modern luxuries such as double-glazed windows and doors, full insulation and central heating. The two Stables units are separately accessible, but can be connected by an internal door, opening up accommodation for a total of 5 guests. And to cater for our self-driving guests, private off-street parking is available in front of the units.

Location and History

The Stables are two self-contained studio rooms located on the ground floor of a stately three-storey Victorian residence across from the Coach House, only 50m from the main hostel. The two rooms are accessed via a driveway running off Bishops Place. For guests arriving by car, there is a drop-off and loading zone in the Hogwartz main hostel's driveway. This allows you to check in and get directions before relocating your vehicle to a private off-street parking spot in front of the Stables units. 

Originally, the Stables were – as the name suggests – the ground floor horse stables of an attractive bluestone residence built around the 1900s. With the retirement of horse traffic, the stabling became a basement storage area and was later turned into a one-bedroom flat. During recent renovations, the original brick arches were once more exposed and restored to their former charm reminding us of the historical purpose of this space.
