Freemasons Hotel, Bridgetown has been maintained continuously over time, with elements such as the verandah having been thoroughly renovated a number of times. Upgrading from time to time has meant that some fabric has been removed and replaced with alternative material. Items such as bars have been replaced and paint stripping to timber joinery has impacted on the condition of internal joinery. The original toilets have been in disuse and are in poor condition. Overall however, the place remains fair to good condition.
