The hotel is Noccundra's only occupied building, housing a permanent population of two. The stone hotel building is heritage listed and is an important building for its long connection with the community of the surrounding area as a venue for many social events, including the Noccundra Rodeo and Bi-annual Ball. An airstrip is behind the hotel.
Andrew Hume's ill fated expedition, to rescue long term survivors of Leichhardt's 1848 expedition, perished of thirst to the west of Noccundra. Today a memorial to Hume is on the western side of the hotel.
