WONTHAGGI’s iconic Caledonian Hotel is up for auction, lock, stock and barrel, providing a rare opportunity for potential buyers in the heart of the commercial centre.
‘The Cally’ will go under the hammer at the site on Thursday, January 30 at 2pm.
The hotel is a popular haunt for punters and families alike.
In the past decade it has become known for its warm atmosphere and has staked its claim as a premier venue.
The local syndicate of owners has helped transform the hotel into what is today after taking over the running of the hotel 12 years ago.
The tired hotel was completely renovated, and reopened in 2003 with its current interior.
Potential buyers can snap up a renowned pub in an ideal location with a spacious modern bar, full TAB, reputable kitchen and meals, beer garden, large bistro and kids play room.
Adding more potential to the hotel is the currently unused facilities upstairs, including 12 bedrooms, a kitchen and lounge areas, or further scope for redevelopment.
Peter Butcher from Wonthaggi’s Alex Scott & Staff Real Estate says the opportunities are endless for The Cally.
“Hotel freeholds don’t really come on the market that often, especially in such a prominent town like Wonthaggi,” Peter said.
“It’s just such a prime location in the main street; the value of the land alone is one reason to snap it up.”
Whilst the pub underwent complete downstairs refurbishment a decade ago, The Cally has undergone small improvements more recently including new flooring and carpets, play equipment tables and chairs throughout the bistro and bar and outdoor awnings.
It all adds to the appeal of this local landmark, which will no doubt draw a crowd to the auction in just over a month.
