The Lakes Hotel

The Lakes Hotel
The Lakes Hotel at 307 Gardiners Road in Rosbery is a handsome interwar period Functionalist style suburban hotel built in 1938.

The curved wall corners in the upstairs verandah provide an expansive feeling to the building and balance well with the stepped roof line from the main front facade.

It has excellent live jazz weekends.

I have been unable to find who the architect was or any of its early history.
