The Carrington Hotel

According to the locals the Carrington Hotel, in the Blue Mountains' village of Katoomba, is haunted. Paranoid or paranormal?? 

The majestic building, built in 1882, is a joy to walk around and sipping cocktails in the bar is a charming experience -but I must say .. there was a rather spooky energy. The hotel was derelict for about 6 years in the 80's until some clever folk purchased her and brought the place back to life. It really is stunning but... I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to stay the night... are you?? 
Take a peek inside....
** Just as an aside - behind the hotel is the FABULOUS Carrington Cellars  - an emporium  (I'm reluctant to call it a bottle shop because it is so much more!) packed with really well considered, interesting wines.  great nibbles and gourmet pantry fillers for packing holiday home kitchens - check them out!  This is the view from outside the store ... not too shabby.
