Our story so far...

Tiffany's Hotel was founded in 1995 by David Johnstone and the late Susan Johnstone. Prior to Tiffany's conception David was a registered accountant with a passion for numbers. Susan on the other hand was a college drop-out who had been raised in and around the hospitality industry due to her mother also being a Hotel owner. Having worked in various departments at several differnet Hotels she learned the skills which she would later use to help run her mother's Hotel. As Susan's passion for the biz contnued to flourish so did her hunger...Then, one fateful day in 1994 as Susan was driving to her mothers Hotel, she drove passed what used to be the Lansdowne Hotel. Legend has it that Susan immeadiately fell in love with the old, dilapidated and bankrupt Hotel and so decided to enquire. As luck would have it, an unbeknownst to Susan at the time, the Lansdowne had just been declared bankrupt and all the big chiefs were in town to discuss it's future. Several meetings later and with a business plan now drawn up David & Susan managed to negotiate taking ownership of this once bankrupt Hotel. David then decided to bring an end to his accountacy career and apply his skills to help drive the new family business forward.

Over the months and years to come David & Susan invested almost every penny they had into the much needed refurbishments. As well as money, they spent every waking hour at the Hotel in an attempt to turn this once failing business around.

As the business started to grow, so to did the need to expand. It's no suprise then that when the opportunity to purchase the Empire Hotel, a smaller 30 bedroom Hotel next door to Tiffany's, the couple jumped at the chance and secured the deal. Tiffany's then grew from 90 bedrooms to 120 bedrooms. But again...more investment was needed to refurbish this older side of the Hotel.

In amongst juggling the pressures and commitments of starting up and running a large Hotel, David & Susan also had a young boy together, called Adam. Adam is no stranger to Hotels having been raised in and around them, just like his mother, since birth. It was always their intention for Adam to eventually take the lead at Tiffany's later in life. Naturally, Adam had other ideas as a kid. He wanted to be; a fireman, a footballer, a wrestler then later in life a rapper. Not asking for much right? As Adam grew his interests began to change and his younger, off-the-cuff, pipe dreams began to fade.

Over the school holidays Adam helped out at the Hotel. From cleaning pots and pans in the pot-wash, to serving guests breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. He'd later go on to the maintenance team where he'd do everything from changing a lightbulb to smashing down old walls ready for redvelopment. Oh, and smashing through a hot water pipe causing a flood and drenching himself from head-to-toe in the process. (but don't tell him I told you)

Fast forward several years...

Sadly, in 2012, Susan passed away suddenly leaving a huge whole in the family and the day-to-day operations of the Hotel.
