But for the sign on the highway announcing there was a Royal Hotel we would not have ventured to Woodstock and what a treat this little town was ... a place where history lingers.  I wonder if the verandahs on the Royal Hotel have been restored yet?  My photo was taken a few years ago but more recently than this photo uploaded to Wikpedia in 2006 which shows it with its iron lace verandah.

See more of Woodstock over at 100 Towns.


  1. I had to look up where Woodstock is. Great to see some TLC is happening to a great 101 year old Royal. I guess George V was king when it was built.

  2. Glad to hear it has been given a new life.

  3. Now you've got me looking for Royals wherever I go - it's amazing how many there are!! I'll be sending you another one soon ...

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
