Murder Mystery Evening - June 2016
"The Captains Flat Hotel is an
iconic art deco style hotel opened in 1937 in the old mining town of Captains
Flat, about an easy forty minute drive from Canberra via
Queanbeyan. The hotel retains its original 1930s etched glass, signage, wood
work, tiles, furniture, staircase and cellar and has been fully restored
by the new owners Tony and Vicky Holland. It is said that the hotel has the
longest bar in the Southern Hemisphere. Ask for a hotel tour.
Our social group enjoyed a weekend
there in June 2016 and we were impressed by the quality of the food - we had a
three course dinner and a cooked breakfast the next morning - the excellent
service, the wood fires and the fun we had at the murder mystery night. The
beds were comfortable, the bathrooms spotless and the tariff very reasonable..
I would thoroughly recommend a
weekend or even a longer stay at the Captains Flat Hotel."

the rustic experience.
- · A
little out of the way, nice hosts, good food, but no phone service made life a
little difficult. ( Orgaisers comment - We wanted them out of the way so they
wouldn’t be distracted. We don’t want them
hanging on their phones either)
the rustic experience and the wonderful hosts – wish them every success.
think the venue was excellent, out of the way, out of the comfort zone for
some, excellent hosts
