Old photo of the hotel.

"The existing site at 18 Mitchell Street was purchased in 1918, and a new hotel was built in 1926. Hotel owners Kevin & Helen Kerrins and their eight children lived at the hotel from 1974 to 1982."

The 100-year-old Colbinabbin Hotel was purchased by a former local in March 2018.  Throughout the course of the history of the charming old, red brick building, there have been many owners and the Pub has been closed on a couple of occasions when there was no business occupier.

 

The challenge for the Hotel has been retaining the charm and character as compared to a knock down. 

 

Fortunately, the former has now occurred.

 

The Hotel has been extensively renovated to make it safe, preserve the charm and character, and to offer a good experience whether it be beverages in the bar or meals in our dining rooms.

 

A Country Hotel is not just a place to drink beer.  It is a haven for Country people to meet, and overcome the barriers of isolation, which is a known as many farmers work alone, older citizens whose families have left to go the cities for their employment and on a positive, there has been a resurgences of young families now wanting to live, work and bring up their children in a rural setting.

 

Country people are much more rounded in all aspects of life as they get to appreciate the differences and benefits of urban and rural lifestyles.

 

The Hotel also has, under the creative and diligent leadership of Julie Price our Manageress, introduced some new adjuncts to the Hotel lifestyle, including the introduction of a pub choir.

 

The Colbinabbin Country Hotel has been the business partner for the Colbinabbin Silo Art Project, and this has been a unique opportunity to showcase the history and pride of this vibrant Community.
