The rough-cut sandstone walls and heavy timber beams of the interior of the Hero of Waterloo evoke an atmosphere of the rough mariners’ life. This hotel was built by George Paton, a stonemason, in 1843. The Hero of Waterloo is the source of many local stories of concealed trap doors, shanghai-ed sailors and rum smuggling.
