Black and White Hotel

I'm one of those people who gets a bit excited by old architecture around New Zealand. This old pub/building/hotel is located on the main street of Westport on the West Coast. Judging by the look of it I'd say it was built around the early 1920s. I'm not really sure how it got it's name, perhaps the building was originally black and white. It seems to have some bad reviews from about 5 years ago on Trip Advisor but recently there are alot of positive comments.

Linking up with Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup.

For sure the hotel is an oldie.

Interesting name, I expected to see a black and white building. :) We have a town called Westport too, it is on the coast in county Mayo.

I've seen Black & White Hotels before, I am not quite sure where. South Africa, N.Z, India, or some other Brit provence that I have no idea which. It was not modern one bit.

Black & White used to be (is) a brand of whiskey - famous for the little dogs on the label. Many is the terrier named Whiskey for that reason - maybe also the pub.

I wonder who decided to paint the front red. With a name like Black and White, I would have stuck with that theme.

Nice shot! It would be interesting to compare it to a photo from when it was new.

On the spot

I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
