I stayed at the North Gregory Hotel during the weekend of the launch of Mystery Road a crime thriller western by the talented Ivan Sen. The Hotel is right next door to the cinema Theatre Royal and is highly atmospheric. The after party was held in the tropical beer garden out the back.The North Gregory is historic hotel and its architectural style is astounding - that rare example of delicate 50s Australian interpretation of late art nouveau mixed with American sci-fi 50s fantasy but all done really tastefully. The grand hall, stairwell and dining room in particular capture the period perfectly. The Hotel is friendly and the staff are terrific - nothing is too difficult and there is genuine country hospitality. They are knowledgeable about the area and bar is a great place to meet locals. its a bit of a social hub. The food was surprisingly good. Hotel layout works well and it reminded me of a grant hotel from the past and it is very cinematic. Good place to stay and there are heaps of things to do in and around Winton. recommended.
