“A step back in time - for the better!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2008

When I had to stay at Brunswick Heads for work I didn't see the need to fork out for a hotel room when a single room with shared facilities was available at the Brunswick Hotel for only $55/ night.
I suppose a backpacker place might have been cheaper but it suited me to stay at the hotel.
Checking in was like you'd expect at a pub, over the bar then to the door of the office.
But the pleasant part was going upstairs to the rooms. Walking through the foyer past the black and white photographs depicting events in Brunswick's history and up the curved staircase, you are transported into a type of accommodation no longer in vogue but very pleasant.
I booked a single room at a very reasonable $55 per night. My room was small with a single bed, a beautiful old cupboard with shelf with a floral china tea cup, saucer and long life milk. A hand basin with mirror above and luggage stand were the only other furnishings in the room.
Although it sounds spartan, it was lovely. Everything you needed and nothing more. But the thing about it, was the way that it was set out, with furniture from an era well before I was born, all giving a beautiful feel from a time less complicated. There was no TV in the room, but it was much more social to go downstairs to the bar or outdoor area.
A sitting room with more period furniture was at the top of the stairs. This room too was impeccably set out and looking through the window was like looking into a museum display.
The shared toilet/shower facilities were very clean and although I rarely stay in places with shared facilities these days, I would not let this deter me from staying there again.
It is only a couple of minutes walk to the middle of this quaint village for a breakfast at one of the excellent coffee shops.
If you are after a place with all the latest mod cons, this probably isn't the place for you. But if want to experience accommodation in what I reckon a really nice hotel would have been like in the early part of last century, then I would highly recommend this property to you.
