A woman was killed at the hotel in January 1870:

The inquest on the body of the woman Mary Donoghue, who was killed on Tuesday afternoon at Blanche's Royal hotel, Sebastopol, by a fall caused by a push from her husband, resulted in the husband being discharged. The evidence went to show that both were drunk, and that he did not push her away until she had been maltreating and abusing him for some time.[2]
