Robin Hood Hotel

Robin Hood Hotel
The Robin Hood Hotel at 203 Bronte Road in Waverley is an excellent example of a modern commercial building in an Ocean Liner/International style designed by Sidney Warden. Sidney Warden designed a vast number of Art Deco hotels and there are many excellent examples described in this blog. The hotel also features Art Deco motifs and detailing which are essentially intact and beautifully maintained.

The Robin Hood hotel is one of three Art Deco hotels situated in the immediate vicinity. The Charing Cross hotel is directly across the road while the Tea Gardens hotel is a brisk ten minute walk towards Bondi Junction.
