In December 1878, the license renewal for the hotel was refused by the Licensing Court:

Gee Ah See, Canton hotel, Haddon Mr Finlayson for the applicant. Constable Daly and Senior-constable Crampton objected to the renewal on the ground that the house was badly conducted, was the resort of prostitutes, and not properly furnished, also that this applicant was a man of bad fame and character. Several witnesses were called, who deposed that the house was frequented by bad characters. The applicant called several witnesses who said the house was well conducted, but the bench refused to grant the renewal[1]
