Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Every so often you come across an unexpected gem in a small country town. Built within the restored Rural Bank building, halfway down the main street of the town, Circa 1936 is certainly one of these finds. The building itself is a classic art deco masterpiece, and the restoration has retained the features of the era with luxury finishes and unique artwork to give it a relaxed and refined feel.
The rooms (and there are only 3 of them, soon to be 4) are spacious and quiet, with high ceilings and enormous bathrooms. Each has its own unique character, with the West Suite having a cozy verandah from where to watch the bustle of downtown Corowa. The king beds are supremely comfortable, and the well stocked mini-bar is included in the room price.
It seems wrong to have left mentioning the service to last - because it is probably the highlight of the stay. From the champagne on arrival, through to the nightcap waiting in the room after dinner and a tasty light breakfast the following day (not to mention an offer to drive us across and pick us up from dinner in Rutherglen, 15 minutes away), the friendliness and local knowledge of the hosts was of the highest level. Rarely does one feel so welcome in a high end hotel.
Circa 1936 is an exceptional hotel and well located to explore the region - not just the wineries of Rutherglen, but the Murray itself, and even an unexpected whiskey distillery and chocolate factory! We can't wait to return for a longer stay.
Highly recommended!

Travelling recently through Corowa, regional NSW, we stayed at the charming Circa 1936 Boutique Hotel.

The very warm welcome by host Jeni, the beautifully presented suites, superior quality bed/bath linens and amenities, luxury bathrooms with high backed baths, rain showers, feature stained glass windows, and a delicious continental breakfast served in the captivating ground floor lounge area, all made for our two wonderful stays at Circa 1936 (we stayed South and West Suites).

This truly impressive property is definitely one not to be missed when travelling the region. An ideal location too for those visiting nearby wineries.

Many thanks Jeni for such an enjoyable and relaxing stay, we look forward to a future return.

We had the most beautiful stay at this Hotel over the last two nights. The hotel is a beautifully renovated old building, with dark floor boards, white walls and interesting art and decoration. Our welcome was warm, nothing was too much trouble, our continental breakfast was delicious and our room (West Suite) was terrific. Very large with a gas fireplace, a huge bath and shower and a lounge area. The mini bar was complimentary - and includes a little wine, beer and water. Fantastic.

Attended a function at CIRCA and it is a stunning venue and the staff very talented and charming . It is a classy place for a small wedding or special party . The potential for a relationship with Rutherglen wineries is huge and have wine bar and artisan platter s from the regions produce in the stylish function space .

Corowa is fortunate to have such a fine boutique hotel in CIRCA and it shows the potential to create more Boutique venues and see investment in the fine historic buildings in a town so well situated in a wine region .

Exceptionally well appointed. Jen and John have an incredible passion for their boutique accommodation. A very casual but professionally managed modern art deco motel. Excellent location just a short drive to one of Australia’s premium wine growing regions which also has an impressive and diverse range of wine and access to nice dining. Highly recommend this place.

Our second visit to Circa 1936, we stayed in the South Suite this visit.
A warm welcome with the offer of beer, wine or cocktail. How could we refuse. Negroni was perfect. Jen and John are the perfect hosts. Even offering to drive us locally if needed.
Cannot fault the rooms, so much love has gone into them.
The bathrooms are huge and the bath was devine. Complimentary bath bomb and gorgeous products supplied.
Huge king size bed with luxury linen. Stocked minibar also complimentary, including local wine. Coffee machine and plenty of pods.
Breakfast was spot on, love the fruit toast and freshly squeezed orange juice.
You will not find anything else up to this standard in Corowa.
We will definitely be back again.

Outstanding hotel! Wonderful host who greet you with welcome drinks on arrival and are happy to help with anything you need.

Beautifully appointed rooms ( we stayed 2 nights in the West Suite - superb!)

Take up the delicious breakfast option - fresh and yummy! Also the nightcap of a sticky muscat left in your room in the evening.

Perfect location close to Rutherglen wineries.

Treat yourself!

The most amazing experience! 90 minutes of bliss. Began with a warm red wine bath for half and hour and finished with an hour relaxation massage. A Wonderful experience topped off with a pot of tea afterwards!!
