The property currently comprises a 5-star, 12 room Boutique Hotel known as the Monarch Hotel. The building was originally constructed in 1924 and was the original telephone exchange, which was later converted into the Saxonwold Post office in the 1930s. The building was finally converted into a boutique hotel in the mid 2000s.
It is improved with a U-shaped plastered and painted brick structure that is covered with a part pitched, part mono-pitched timber framed Harvey and cement tiled roof. Internal fittings and finishes are of high quality, comprising tiled and carpeted floors and modern bathroom fittings.
