Grabbed by The Coconuts

Dog my Cats. (No seriously, dog them). I haven’t tried the interior, but on the outside, The Carlisle hotel has tried to disguise their Cocos Palm infestation by erecting a giant neon Coconut Palm. This from Ljuke, or it may have been his beer glasses talking. The whole thing may not be real, just a mirage in the desert that is Carlisle. New bands, new management, new fake palm species.



If you are graffitiing train carriage windows on the Armadale line you’ll go past this one. Remember, there are no cocos palms here. There is nothing to see. Go about your business.

CARLISLE HOTEL MOTEL 174 Rutland Avenue Carlisle WA 6101 PH:FAX: 08 9362 6689 Email: * Fully self-contained units * Ideally suited to families * Directly opposite the railway station

    The cocos palms look like they are about to mug the fake coconut palm – either that or they are forming a boy band.

    The hotel has new owners now and the hotel has had a major fit out. The plastic Palm tree is gone and they have a very nice Irish bar. The food is some of the best in Perth now. What a change to what the hotel used to be.
