To the rear of the dining room is the kitchen which while functional, is modest with typical meal service bench and preparation areas. Upstairs from the dining room by way of a substantial timber staircase is the hotel accommodation which is currently configured for 18 rooms with shared laundry, dining, kitchen and conveniences. The first floor has a central corridor running to both ends of the building with rooms on either side connecting to both the front and rear verandas.
At the end of each wing, rooms have been converted into staff accommodation and the managers residence. Shared toilets and bathroom facilities are located on the rear verandas - offering separate male and female amenities.
