Background[edit | edit source]

Originally known as Spring Creek Hotel, the hotel is now known as the Savoia Hotel. The name was changed in January 1925:

Savoia Hotel, Hepburn. Approval of the court was asked to the change of name of the Spring Creek Hotel, Hepburn, to the Savoia. Superintendent Hood, Ballarat district, offered no objection to the change of name, but intimated that when plans of proposed alterations to the house were submitted he would raise objection to some of the details. Mr. Black, who appeared for Mr. V. A. A. Frazone, the applicant, said the structural alterations would cost £2000, and some of the police objections might be overcome. Superintendent Hood said the building would be an improvement in the tourist resort. The Chairman said approval would be given to the change of name, and consideration would be given to the plans of proposed alterations.[2]
