View of a segmented curved linoleum-topped bar edged with chromed rails and faced with veneer and ribbed metal.The room has curved walls and pillars panelled in veneer, a linoleum floor laid in a stepped pattern, decorative timber trims and streamlined cornices. It is furnished with a long couch upholstered in vinyl and with cylindrical veneered arms.

The Hyde Park Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in May 1911and sold in April 1983. In April 1940, the name was changed from the Royal Hyde Park Hotel to the Hyde Park Hotel. On completion of rebuilding in July 1941 the hotel was a four storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and a flat concreted roof. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
