The lounge has decorative cornices, ceiling fans and lights and an electric heater set in a brick wall under mirror tiles. The room is furnished with timber bench and table boothes. Windows are curtained in both a light mesh textile and a heavy dark fabric. Other details include two ashtrays, one metal and the other bakelite, a wall clock and a wall vase. 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.
