Background[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

The hotel was threatened with closure in 1886, but the case was a morally difficult one for the court:

Maria Hinckes of the Reservoir hotel, Smythes and Ballarat road, was charged with failing to comply with an order to cleanse and repair her premises.—lnspector Parkinson said that this was a pitiable case. The defendant was 73 years old and in declining health, and that should the license be forfeited there was nothing left for her but the Benevolent Asylum. The bench, on the inspector’s recommendation, agreed to let the matter stand over till December.[3]
