Conveniently located in the CBD; just minutes from Wynyard Station and close to all major tourist attractions, The Occidental is one of the last five surviving hotels of this style and its foundations are now Heritage Listed. Largely untouched until the 1970’s, the hotel retained its original functions into the 1980’s when three floors were adapted for use as a restaurant, a function room and accommodation rooms. As the one of the oldest working hotels in the city, it has high social and historic significance for its long and continuous tradition as an inner city corner hotel. The vintage hotel is comprised of 2 bars, a bistro and gaming facilities on its ground floor, the popular Fairmont Restaurant on its first floor, the versatile function room on its second and of course its budget apartments for rent on the third floor
The Occidental Hotel has interesting facts - Why are Pubs called Hotels in Australia? A pub, short for Public House, is an establishment whose main function is to serve alcohol, mostly beer. Also known as an Ale house or Tavern. The reason for this is that until recently, in Australia (late 1980s), pubs were forced, by the liquor laws, to provide accommodation and so were accurately called hotels.
