Reviewing this hotel is very difficult as I can fully understand the reasons behind others not enjoying it. We stayed here for 1 night as we wanted a place to stop off and be able to do the monastery tour etc. We had a great time in the bar tried the Abbey Ale, Abbey Wines and the fortifieds too. We had a great nights sleep as the bed was very comfortable and quiet. The bathrooms in the hotel are all shared and seem to have been modernised and are well maintained. The rest of the hotel, including the bedrooms are pretty much falling apart, the decor within the rooms is incredibly dated and the whole place could do with a massive refit. However it does have a certain charm and I still have fond memories of my stay there, it isn't often you get to experience much history in Australia so I made the most of it here. The hotel maintenance is carried out by volunteers so they can be commended for that. I wont ever stay here again but thank you for the fond memories!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1927 and nestled beneath gum trees overlooking the township, the Latin word Salve - Welcome - on the threshold tells you this is no ordinary country pub. The New Norcia Hotel was originally a hostel for the parents of the boarders at the New Norcia colleges, but is now a practical expression of the Benedictine tradition of hospitality and the Hotel's classic style will take your breath away as you approach the double front doors. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available and whether you are after a quick snack on the run or a more relaxing meal, the Hotel will be able to cater for you.Seasonal menu's are prepared and range from fresh soup that is prepared each day to larger meals or even a good old fashioned burger. Sunday night is pizza night and all bases are cooked in New Norcia's wood-fired oven.
