The room is furnished with a range of seating and table arrangements, including sofas, chairs around small tables and occasional tables. The smaller pieces are constructed of chromed steel, seating is padded with probably vinyl upholstery and table surfaces are of formica. Windows are curtained, most tables are provided with ashtrays and there are two flower arrangements.The Clarendon Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in September 1934 and sold in August 1985. On completion of rebuilding in January 1943 the hotel was a three storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and an asbestos and malthoid roof. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
