No rooms at the ANU inn

Yesterday CMM reported the university was nearly back to normal, with damage done in Monday’s hailstorm pretty much repaired. Not at University House it isn’t

The university advises the much-loved heritage guest-accommodation has taken a horrible hail-hiding, that events are off and guests out until end February.

There is water damage to the entire top floor and to function rooms, with the 66 years-old original tile roof, “the major area of concern.”

University House is not flash, but it is charming, “Bertie and Jeeves would have loved it,” a learned reader remarks.

Here’s hoping the repair job is not one of those horrors where fixing one problem reveals another.
