Visiting Coburg’s newly refurbished Woodlands Hotel is like walking through a top-notch antique store. Decked out by the masterminds behind the lavish Carlton Hotel, oversize toy soldiers guard the second level, where you can sit in Alice in Wonderland-style flocked armchairs. On the ground level is a rustic outdoor courtyard and a group-friendly dining room. They offer a fairly exhaustive list of beers and the tasting plates look good too. If it weren’t for the several LCD screens - one in every room - that automatically give it sports pub status, it’d be very hard to leave.
