The hotel was in Main Road[1], on the corner with Durham Street.[2]

History

In November 1882 the Ballarat Star reported on the hotel's new name:

Ballarat is generally to the fore in recognising merit when recognition is due. The latest illustration of this is found in the fact that an hotel on the Plank road which has been recently renovated outside and inside, has been re-named the Baron Wolseley hotel.[3]

Notes

  • In December 1883 George Brown, landlord of the Baron Wolseley hotel, was proceeded against for serving with liquor on Sunday persona other than bona fide travellers. Defendant pleaded guilty, and was fined 20s, with 2s 6d costs.[6]
  • In September 1887 Annie M‘Shane, licensee of the Baron Wolseley hotel, applied for the removal of her license to other and more commodious premises. The licensing inspector, Mr Parkinson, also proceeded against the applicant for allowing her premises to become dilapidated. The application for removal of the license was refused, and the inspector’s proceedings withdrawn. An order was made by the court to allow her to surrender her license within seven days, endorsed without any compensation.[7]
