The railway station, on MacNab St, was once a vibrant and important transport node, supported by the presence of the Hotel across MacNab St. However, with the termination of passenger services, the Alice Station has been neglected, as has the Hotel. The result is that the once beautiful buildings have been left to deteriorate and the area surrounding the station has become an informal drinking space. Given its significant location – on MacNab Street as one exits Alice towards Fort Beaufort – this area must be given a facelift if the regeneration of Alice is to be accomplished.
