My brother and sister-in-law got married here on the huge balcony - the sofitel's facilities are exceptional as well.

A real western 'burbs gem.

The other Werribee Mansion:

The Manor

Built in 1895-6.

The architect was Alexander Hamilton.

Percy Chirnside, the son of Andrew Chirnside, built  "The Manor", a falling out with his elder brother George who inherited Werribee Mansion prevented him using the word "Werribee" when naming his new mansion.

The Manor was destroyed by fire in 1966.
