On the topic this week of Bondi Accommodation, let’s take a look at the Hotel Bondi.

Designed by E Lindsay Thompson, the Hotel Bondi has a distinctly 1920s style, although construction ran from 1915-1945. Commercially, it struggled initially due to relative isolation (can you believe it?) but it soon became the popular destination it remains today.

The design mixes Federation, Italianate and Free Classical influences, and earned heritage listing for historical, social and aesthetic significance. It was renovated in 2011 as part of The Beach House development next door with a much needed paint job and exposure of the southern side of the hotel,  which was previously obstructed by an adjoining part of the hotel.

Budget accommodation is available: Hotel Bondi.
