I recognize the top Queens as I almost posted it today myself. :)) Barrie, right?

Right! The second one is in Thornton.

I'm not in the right country or even continent to visit these, but they surely look attractive!

Looks very British or colonial?

Granny: the second one was a very nice family run place, but as happens, the owners became too old to carry on.

Mrs Nesbitt: very Canadian, I think!

Nora said...

Neat old places, they do show some history I think. It's a shame that the second one is for sale. Hopefully it will continue to be run as a pub. It would be sad if it lost its function.

VioletSky said...

I think that is the hope (according to the sign that is on the door)

Both look lovely. I like the juxtaposition of the two together.

I prefer the second one, like a charming old house.

Both elegant looking buildings.

Like them both but the gingerbread on the 2nd one is pretty nice!

They are so wonderful. I hope the second one turns out well!

Too bad someone hasn't come forward to keep the closing one open! It looks as though it has a lot of character and history to it. What a shame...

We used to have a very small Queens Hotel here too, but the land sold off and new building ( condo) went up in it's place.

Thanks for stopping by to comment on my Rodmay Hotel post. This weekend I am going to another heritage hotel in the town of Steveston. I will post about it next week most likely. Next to the Rodmay Hotel in Powell River is the Old Courthouse Inn. It is a conversion, but a very historic building. I believe it is on the market. - Margy

It's a shame when hotels have to close - less competition for the others.
