A shadow of her former self?

The Guildford Hotel stood derelict and unprotected from the elements for 8 long years after a fire ripped through her belly, destroying much that will never be replaced . . .

. . . and even that which has been replaced just ain't quite exactly as it was.

It's close. Very close. But . . . missed it by that much . . .

Local residents mounted an unrelenting campaign to save the grand old building from demolition by neglect, facing often unsupportive Government machinations and, to be honest, much indifference from the wider Perth community.

The irony is that the reworked hotel is reportedly now a more popular venue for many from that once indifferent wider Perth community than it is for the locals. C'est la vie.
