BACKGROUND TO EATONS HOTEL
Eatons Hotel is a state heritage listed building, originally built in 1839, back then it was called The White Hart Inn.
Until 1866 rolled round with new ownership it became Eatons Hotel and has been ever since.
Eatons Hotel is rich in memories but few photos have survived - see some classics below.
The hotel has undergone many renovations and repairs in its long life. Most recently an extensive restoration took place in 1996 and a huge renovation in 2007 which seen the hotel completely renovated and repaired internally.
A large extension was added to the rear which doubled the venue in size.
It embraces its moody heritage features including lead light windows and pressed metal ceilings while the extension provides a beautiful modern venue with plenty of natural light that feels spacious & timeless. The combination blends seamlessly.
Sadly, the exterior is still awaiting its turn for some much needed attention.
As at June 2020 approvals are pending from the state heritage council for the new facade colour scheme and repair work so it can finally have its makeover. Watch this space folks!
