North Gregory Hotel/Motel: And the band played...

We were delighted to stay here on our second trip to Winton as we discovered the owners grandfather had spent time in Buderim and was actually someone David knew very well and was in fact David's mentor.

We loved this big brick hotel and even though it was rebuilt a number of times after being destoyed by fire it retained the ' gloomy feel' of a previous era. Well in Australia a long way back in time is only baby stuff to Europe but nevertheless....

We were given a large double room with a view to the street. Unlike Mirjam (see her review) "the lights stayed on as the band played on".

"The Australian national song, Waltzing Matilda, was first performed publicly in the North Gregory Hotel in 1895. As country pubs are known to do, the hotel has burned down a few times since then. Owners David and Prue Strang are locals, so they’re walking encyclopaedias when it comes to local knowledge. Accommodation includes ensuite hotel and motel rooms, and there are also large family rooms. The Strangs offer discounts for motorcyle groups and lock-up parking for two- and three-wheel vehicles. This is very much a family-oriented pub"
