History[edit | edit source]

In October 1856, the publican was advertising new entertainment at the hotel:

WASHINGTON HOTEL, Main Road. JOHN WILLIAM EMERY, IN presenting his thanks to the public for past favors and his claims for future support, begs respectfully to inform his friends and patrons, that he has just returned from Melbourne, where he has succeeded in securing the services of several eminent artists, who will perform every evening on different instruments, from six until ten. It also affords J. W. Emery great pleasure to announce that he has replenished his stock of wines, spirits and malt liquors, from the choicest samples in the market. The restaurant is conducted on the most liberal scale, and furnished daily with every delicacy which can be had from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. The comfort of every guest carefully attended to, and the charges exceedingly moderate.[2]

Charles Dyte offered the hotel for sale in July 1861.[3]
