The Blackball Hilton is a two storeyed timber hotel building thought to date from either 1897 or 1908. With its hipped roof, full height verandah and near symmetry, the front elevation is almost archetypal of small town Edwardian hotel design. The building has an unsympathetic side addition dating from 1981. Private accommodation was added in 1991.
