 A place in history – it’s your time

The Criterion has a charismatic history as a hotel dating as far back as 1867. In March of 1994, The Criterion became a place of cultural  significance and was rightfully placed on the Heritage List. The splendid Main Bar is created from beautiful silky oak with a curved central bay  featuring mirrored shelving.  Needless to say, workmanship like this is seldom seen in modern times. The light from the beautiful leaded windows gives the feeling of a by-gone age and the pressed metal ceilings are another stunning highlight of this characterful building. There is some dispute  whether the six faces looking down are of the Virgin Mary or Cherubs watching over the blessed patrons. Maybe you can decide?

The historic hotel retains a substantial amount of the original features including the splendid main staircase. In the 1940’s, the public bar was reminiscent of a scene straight out of a western and, when the ceiling was pierced by three shots from the rifle of a returned serviceman, luckily there was no-one upstairs! But, from then on, it has been known as the “The Three Bullet Bar”. The bullet holes remain today!
