Discovery (Post#62) : Castle Hotel (York, WA)

Photos of the day are all about York Castle Hotel located in the corner of South Street and Avon Terrace. This hotel is the oldest inland hotel not only in the town but in the whole state of Western Australia which established in 1853 and managed by Craig family until 1990. One of the interesting discovery in this hotel aside from being the longest family business running in York, was found during its renovations in 1989, when the paint was stripped in the dining room, they found an insignia of the Order of the Garter with its motto “Honisoit qui mal y pense” (translated as “Shame on him who thinks this evil”). The Order of the Garter is the highest and oldest order of British chivalry founded by Edward III in 1348. The said discovery made some assumptions that the room used by members of Agricultural Society (wealthier and influential men of the town), other people believed that Court session may have been held in the room. As of this writing, this historical hotel still in business and offers combinations of accommodations, shops, bistro, bars and swimming pool. These photos are part of Wheatbelt Region Tour October 2016.
