Good Morning Lex. Lovely to see your photo. I am not sure how many hotels are in Kookynie, but my first cousin Ivy and her husband use to own and run the hotel in this town for many year in the past.

Welcome back David, This is the only standing hotel with all 4 walls in Kookynie for some time so this must be the one.. Its for sale BTW. This hotel is an exceptional representation of the building methods used a century ago. Well worth a look over.

We only ever came across one surly publican while touring on sickles...in Walpole. :--[[ A few years back now though.

If it was the owner of the hotel whom you dealt with, he's a motorcycle enthusiast himself! (He is a friend of mine.)

Hell, No_Stranger's known the length and breadth of the globe. We've even heard of him up here in the far North (..well, Scotland, anyway!)

Howzit going, Kevin - how was the ride from Rome to Barcelona? Is Lee still saddlesore? ;)

Spent Easter here 20 years ago....Great Place.

Room doors wouldn't close and the dining room menu was a choice of "eat it or leave it". Despite it being a ghost town, the place was packed on Saturday night.

GasGasL€X on December 3, 2011

Yeah we had a steak burger & chips and it was very tasty, a lot of history on those walls inside... another great old building... its for sale, $200k I believe...
