A genuine 1960s Cadillac has been restored for guests staying in Atura Hotel in Prospect.

The Cadillac arrived at the hotel last week and is included in the hotel's Ultimate Time Warp package, which consists of overnight accommodation, breakfast for two and being taken by Cadillac to the drive-in cinema.

The premium package gives guests the privilege of being chauffeured around in the Cadillac.

"We will actually drive the guests over to the drive-in [cinema], leave them there . . . they can sit there and watch it in the comfort of the Cadillac," hotel general manager Joel Gordon said.

"At the moment we have an Atura bus that transfers our guests around to corporate places.

"If they want to feel a little bit special, they can do so in the Cadillac."

After using the Cadillac at the drive-in cinema, hotel guests return to the hotel and let an employee know that they've finished in order for someone to retrieve the Cadillac and park it back at the hotel. It is displayed in front of the hotel to create a sense of arrival for guests.

"Our main aim is to keep the Cadillac on the driveway at all times," Mr Gordon said

"I think it gives out a great 'wow factor'.

"It's all about creating the experience — the Atura experience."

Mr Gordon said the Cadillac coincides with the Atura image, which is 1960s retro.

"It's going to be here from now until forever."
