A right royal start

Royal Hotel, Spring Ridge
Royal Hotel, Quirindi
We were targeting Quirindi for our next stop because I knew there was a Royal Hotel there that I had not captured, but the one we found at Spring Ridge on the way was a complete surprise.


  1. Most rural hotels seem to be two-storied ... and usually the only storied building in town. I guess it's for accommodation upstairs and eating & drinking at street level.

    1. Yes Dianne that is often the case. I can only assume for the reason you suggest.

  2. Would it be your assessment that this would be the numerically paramount pub name in Australia? With perhaps Railway Hotel coming second?

    1. I've updated today's post (which has another Royal) with the answer to this.

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.
