History[edit | edit source]

In January 1882 the hotel building was vandalised in a very unpleasant way:

Some dirty fellow (says the Creswick Advertiser) perpetrated an almost unpardonable offence on Wednesday night last or early on Thursday morning, by besmearing the whole of the front of the Royal hotel at Kingston with nightsoil. So completely was the filthy work done that the inmates could scarcely remain in the hotel, and it is believed some time must elapse before the effects can be entirely obliterated. A reward of £10 is offered for the conviction of the guilty person, and it is hoped, in the interest of decency and decorum, the delinquent will be brought to justice and made an example of.[1]
