View of nine tables set for a meal with tablecloths, cutlery, condiment vessels, vases of flowers and ashtrays. The room's windows are curtained, there is carpet on the floor, and bowl shaped lights and a fan hang from the ceiling. The furniture is of timber construction and the chairs have padded seats, probably upholstered in vinyl. On one wall is a heater set in bricks below a panel of mirror tiles and a clock. 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.
