Antiques dealer, Hadyn Pearce, has already opened up a motel in a former asylum on the same site and has been slowly restoring the morgue, building by building.
Its quintessential equipment, including autopsy tables, pull-out fridges and a stainless steel bathtub, have all been earmarked to become features of the new hotel.
Mr Pearce, who hopes the hotel will be ready for business in 2013, told ABC News in Australia that he hoped the dissection room would become the "main suite", attracting an "unusual" client base.
"We'll be looking at putting a double bed in one of the rooms and then we have three slabs and two pull-out fridges which could be used," he continued.
The site was closed down 12 years ago, after having served as a convict hospital from 1830 and a morgue from the 1950s.
