Well what can I say? We entered the Occidental Hotel only to be transported back to the 1900’s.
The lobby boasts a grand piano, Dusty Drapes , Dried flower displays & allsorts of curios from the hey day of the cowboy …No elevator for Ian ( & I don’t travel light ! ) Our Room The Bordello Suite was actually part of a working whore house til 1972. The rooms have been lovingly restored to their former glory by the current owners. Our room complete with brass frame bed & a chandelier had so many gilt framed mirrors it made all my cheeks blush, Min had her choice of 2 further rooms decked out in a similar style with “tasteful “ period nudes framed on every wall.. The bathroom with claw foot bath & separate loo with high mounted cistern completed the illusion.
Along the hall we found an ancient kitchen with Buffalo skin upholstered chairs salvaged from a 1930’s casino, allowing us the luxury of coffee. A few doors down we were astonished to find an enormous library stuffed with Fossils & genuine dinosaur bones.
Our entire experience was phenomenal, although somewhat spooky with creaky floorboards & pissed doors, one of which features the scars of being beaten on by the butt of a 6 shooter wielded by a disgruntled customer, who could not get the company of his fave girl as she was already “entertaining “.

  2. Holiday 2008 was a mesmerizing step back in time as we ventured into the Occidental Hotel, immersing ourselves in the ambiance of the 1900s. The Bordello Suite, a beautifully restored relic of the past, offered an enchanting escape complete with ornate mirrors, a brass bed, and a fascinating library filled with fossils and dinosaur bones, making every moment an unforgettable journey into history.
