Description:

The Carlton Hotel, Geelong, has an illustrious and colorful history having first been built in 1849 as the Union Club. It then underwent extensive renovations prior to the outbreak of WWII and was renamed The Carlton Hotel as Carlton and United Breweries Pty Ltd had financed the restorations and then used the hotel as a showcase for the brewing giant.
The elaborate scale of the renovations included two bars, 40 accommodation rooms, a lounge, servant accommoation and an entrance hall all finished with exquisite fittings.
The Carlton Hotel became an institution in its own right with a range of celebrity and royal guests staying at the hotel throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s including Queen Elizabeth II, Ava Gardner and then Prime Minister Gough Whitlam.
Sadly, by the end of the 70s the hotel's glory days faded and it wasn't until 2004 that its former grandeur was reignited by an innovative Melbourne design team that redisigned, restored and resurrected the iconic city landmark.
