The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel

leave a comment »

Locally known as The Lord, the Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel has written on its façade: “Sydney’s Oldest Hotel.” The hotel is located in Sydney’s The Rocks district, at the corner of Kent and Argyle streets. In 1831, Richard Phillips opened a pub called the Shipwright Arms at that same intersection.

After changing the name a couple times (along with ownership), the then-Quarrymans Arms, under the ownership of William Wells, was converted into a pub and hotel in the 1840s: The Lord Nelson.

The Brewery was added to the Lord Nelson in 1987.

The Whaler’s Inn

leave a comment »

Located in Mystic, Connecticut, the Whaler’s Inn is the largest in the downtown area; it boasts a great location, as their website states: “The property is situated just half a block from the Historic Bascule Drawbridge & Scenic Mystic River.”

The inn is just walking distance to local shops and restaurants, along with the Mystic Seaport Museum of America and the Sea.

The inn is split into several different “houses” that offer various accommodations. A noteworthy item about the Whaler’s Inn is the lack of key card access, each room has an actual key — some special old school charm.

Pictured is the Hoxie House, the most requested of the Whaler’s Inn houses. The deluxe guestrooms overlook the Mystic River and downtown.
