Blaxland is a growing community of approximately 10,000 people. Its interest lies namely in its history rather than its buildings or monuments.
The Lapstone Hotel is an important part of this historic community.
The Old Lapstone Hotel was built in the 1930's at the RAAF Base Glenbrook. It was intended to catch passing traffic and to save hotel guests from disturbance. It has been part of the RAAF Base since 1928 and is currently the Officers Mess. It has been restored and the interior remodelled, however the outside remains the same. The entrance was moved from here during the widening of the Great Western Highway in 1980.
The New Lapstone Hotel was established in 1980 in Blaxland. The Lapstone Hotel was purchased by the Lewis Group of Hotels and has undergone a total refurbishment and renovation in 2007.
The hotel is open 364 days a year with facilities that include ATMs, wheelchair access and a baby change table. The Lapstone Hotel has Eftpos facilities and accepts Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Diners.
