Big win for Hotel Hotel

By XO_VSOP - 28 May 2014 8

Hotel Hotel has just taken out ‘Best Boutique City Hotel’ in The inaugural Gourmet Traveller Australian Hotel Guide awards.

Hotel Hotel is the brain child of brothers Johnathan and Nectar Efkarpdis. Their influences from around the world have birthed this one of a kind hotel.

We have word that a new restaurant headed up by well known hospitality identity Michael Gray is due to open in the next few weeks.

What’s Your opinion?

I spent quite a few years fooling about on a touring motorcycle and as a rule would just stay away from big cities as they were all expensive.

If I didn’t camp then a $40 room and a countery in a small town pub takes a lot of beating IMHO.

Ah yes. Country pubs with the oversize monsoon showerheads (no wimpy flow restrictors) and the heart attack breakfasts.

Most country pubs I have stayed in in the last few years only offer a continental breakfast; basically cornflakes or rice bubbles and white bread, plus tea and instant coffee. I can’t remember the shower heads, but with recent droughts, I would be surprised if many still had large shower heads.

rossoact and I aren’t talking about the soft close, LED sensor light world of today. Continental breakfasts? No way – they weren’t inveneted then. And the showers with deluge level delivery were down the hallway for all guests to use.
Oh to be back at the Imperial Hotel in Moree in the 60’s.

If Rosscoact paid $40 for a room they are talking about more modern times. Twenty years ago a room would have been closer to $20. Yes, the shower down the hallway, at least for males. Some pubs thought females preferred a bath. I was not impressed with this idea, and if there were no male guests I would use the shower. I did stay in one pub, where because I planned an early start, I was shown the kitchen and where the food was, so I could cook my own breakfast. The owners weren’t getting up that early.

What a shame that most town house builders continue to pour out bland, dull buildings. Another plain grey or brown town house…how exciting and imaginative…not.

At least aubergine is no longer the colour de jour!

Yes, great stuff. It’s great to see something that is a little different and has had more thought put into it. I was in the area the other day and greatly admired what has been done. Well done.
As much as I admire places like this though, sigh, when I travel in Australia I mostly get to sleep in my car. I could not afford to travel widely if I had to pay hotel rates. I can afford a cup of coffee though in interesting builds and admire the architecture and artworks.

Great stuff, they are people with vision that have pretty much single handedly transformed that end of town
