W. Short Hotel Group

The Legend of W. Short Hotel Group

The Short family has been at the core of the Australian hospitality industry since the 1970s, when husband and wife team Warwick and Ros Short began owning and operating hotels such as The Stoned Crow, Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel, The Marlborough in Newtown & The Racecourse Hotel in Randwick.

Warwick was always a firm believer in the values of pride, passion and personality. He believed in the importance of being proud of your work, had a huge passion for the hospitality industry, and used his charismatic personality to create the best possible experiences for customers and staff.

After Warwick sadly passed away, siblings Martin Short and Paris Ballantyne, along with mother Ros Short, created W. Short Hotel Group in loving memory of their publican father and husband, with the aim of continuing his legacy and instilling his beliefs into its pubs, hotels and staff.

Today, the Group owns and operates some of New South Wales's most iconic pubs and hotels, including The Australian Heritage Hotel and The Glenmore in The Rocks, The Royal in Leichhardt, Scubar Downunder in Sydney Central and The Seabreeze Beach Hotel in South West Rocks.
