The Railway Hotel was a hotel in Beaufort, <1884-1915>.


The hotel was in Beaufort.[1]



During the license hearing in December 1914 it was noted there was a falling off in trade:

A renewal of the license of the Railway Hotel, Beaufort, to C. H. Dancocks was granted, the assessment being the same as formerly. Questioned as to the reason for a falling off in the trade at this house, the Licensing Inspector (Supt. Bennett) said the only reason he could give was that the mining industry here was not as flourishing as last year.[2]
