Airlie Ho­tel closes for rest of year

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

THE Airlie Beach Ho­tel is ex­pected to be out of ac­tion un­til early 2018.

Owner Paul O’Neil said while ini­tial as­sess­ments in­di­cated mod­er­ate dam­age was caused to the build­ing dur­ing Cy­clone Deb­bie, sub­se­quent rain had com­pounded the scope of works. “We had to deal with mould and needed to in­volve a hy­gien­ist to make sure the restora­tion is fully ef­fec­tive and meets all health re­quire­ments so we can open in pris­tine con­di­tion,” he said.

There is a re­mote pos­si­bil­ity that Capers on the Es­planade will be open on a lim­ited ba­sis by Christ­mas.

FIX: Airlie Beach Ho­tel is ex­pected to re-open early next year.
