He also owned and operated the?Battery? or crusher for the goldbearing quartz. This was situated diagonally opposite the house so he used this room as his Parlour/office.

Hydronic heating; It was Mrs. Emily Wilson, another Scot, who named the house ?Hollyrood House? (note the incorrect spelling) after the monarch?s residence in Edinburgh. She was also the first to use the house as a guesthouse and continued to operate it until her death in 1927. At that time the house boasted ?superior accommodation and excellent cuisine? two traits we endeavour to retain today. This room was the original Master Bedroom and has recently had a bathroom ensuite added

There were ten rooms available for rent at that time including three bungalows in the western garden. This room was part of the original 1864 house and has recently had a bathroom installed.

Built as the Billiard room in 1927, the restaurant specialises in both Asian and Western food.
