The Cape York Hotel has very very basic accomodation and is mostly used by males from the bush.I would not recommend it to females as it is known to get a bit 'rough around the bar area'. The rooms are mainly shared,they are mediocre but are clean.The bathrooms are shared.They have single,double and twin rooms.
The bar has a real country pub feel about it and still has the original tiled smoking trough where smokers could throw their butts in.
The bar room has a pool table and a small pokies room off the main public area.
They also have live entertainment on Sundays in the Pandemonium Room.
Tables and chairs with a smoking area grace the footpath outside the pub.
So if you don't want anything fancy or you want to have a good time with the regulars/locals then check the pub out.
They also have a dining room with home cooked 'Pub Grub'.
Unique Qualities: Facilities are very basic but clean.The wide veranda upstairs is a relaxing place to sit after a hectic day and the bedrooms all have doors leading out to it.
The pool,BBQ and Jukebox are all in need of a makeover.
Plenty of parking. It is a very noisy hotel but the owner/manager Gayle Scowcroft welcomed me and showed me around and allowed me to take photo's.So even though I did not stay here I was able to chat with a couple of guests (all males) who did,they said "it is a good home away from home place to lay down and rest after having a good time" "All I have to do is crawl up the stairs and hit the sack""Good tucker""Gayle is terrific for an old girl"
