The Kukerin Hotel was originally constructed in 1928. The building and importantly the business have both stood the test of time. The Kukerin hotel remains as 1 of only a few historic country federation style hotels that are still operational and which have been faithfully restored and maintained in good condition over the years. The buildings two storey design is representative of the original Federation Filigree Style of architecture which was prominent in the early 1920’s to 1930’s. Once constructed it became the first legal licensed outlet for alcoholic beverages in the region . Because of this the hotel became and remains the focal center for social gatherings and entertainment for the town and the surrounding districts.
The building originally had two bars and a commercial room for ladies to frequent the hotel with accommodation available for travelers in the upstairs rooms. Over time the 2 bars have been converted to a public bar with entertainment area, dining room, kitchen and an office. A comfortable , open beer garden has also been added to the facilities . The hotel also offers accommodation for patrons, travellers and tourists. Specifically on the top floor there are 10 clean and well appointed accommodation units which are available to those customers . On the ground floor there is a single ensuite room. There is also a private fully self-contained managers suite complete with outdoor entertaining deck..
The current owner has had the business for 4 years and has decided to retire. He currently is a hands on owner/operator and is assisted by other casual staff to run the hotel.
Uniquely the current owner of the hotel also enjoys the rights to the local Postal Service/mail run and the daily school bus run. Both of these opportunities are mainly conducted outside of the hotel trading hours and are therefore compatible with the hotel operation. The income generated from these activities supplements the income for the hotel. The rights to the Postal Service and the school bus run will be transferred to the new owner of the Kukerin Hotel.
This is the perfect business for a couple looking for a lifestyle change to live in a rural community, surrounded by the unique Western Australian wheat belt countryside setting.
