The new proprietors of the Bruce Hotel, Akaroa, Messrs Robinson and H. Parkin, have carried out extensive improvements since they recently took over the hotel from Mr 0. Burland. Tbe Bruoe Hotel is tbe most popular in Akaroa for tourists, as it is situated directly on the waterfront and close to tho whams. The increasing appli cation for accommodation at tbe hotel has led tbe proprietors to extend their sleeping apartments by making arrangements for converting an adjacent building into well-appointed bedrooms for emergency, while they have at the same time increased the comfort of the bedrooms in the hotel itself. The hotel has been thoroughly renovated with new papering and the installation of electric light throughout the whole house. In addition to this the dining room has been extended by taking in the verandah leading on to the street, and can now comfortably seat fifty persons. Throughout; the coming busy season,

then, tbe new proprietors will be able to comfortably provide for at least fifty persons and additional motor parties for lunch. Tbe dining room has been handsomely papered and bung with artistic water colours and engravings. There are considerably over fifty lights throughout the house, and the whole of tbe building bas been refurnished in the most artistic Style. The proprietors have a large staff to

oar y oug the internal woiking of the hotel, and the table wilt be excellent from every point of view. The Bruoa Hotel, owing to its favourable position, being right on tbe water front, not far to the wbarveo and launches, col only a hundred yards from iha pretty Akaroa Domain, is justly entitled to its claim for being tbe most popular hotel in Akaroa. Tbe proprietors, however, by attend ing to the increased comforts for tourists in tbe way of furnishing.?, tbe use of the convenient electric light, an excellent table, and care exercised to make a stay in the house as pleasant to their patrona as possible, hope that tbe Bruoa Hotel will not only be known for its favourable position as a tourist and commercial hotel, but also for its first class appointments. 196
