The Occidental is a Victorian Regency Style Hotel and is the oldest building in Wynyard Square; its resurrection dating back to 1850.
Conveniently located in the CBD; just minutes from Wynyard Station and close to all major tourist attractions, The Occidental is one of the last five surviving hotels of this style and its foundations are now Heritage Listed. Largely untouched until the 1970’s, the hotel retained its original functions into the 1980’s when three floors were adapted for use as a restaurant, a function room and accommodation rooms.
As the one of the oldest working hotels in the city, it has high social and historic significance for its long and continuous tradition as an inner city corner hotel. The vintage hotel is comprised of 2 bars, a bistro and gaming facilities on its ground floor, the popular Fairmont Restaurant on its first floor, the versatile function room on its second and of course its budget apartments for rent on the third floor.
