Building commenced in 1865 near the stock route, which at that time was the main road to Moorundie (Blanchetown), and at its completion in 1867 the hotel contained 12 rooms. The exterior has remained unchanged although some alterations have been made to the interior; many of the original cedar fittings are still intact.

The large stables held twenty stalls which catered for the weary teams from interstate passing on the stock route until its closure. Cobb & Co. and later Rounsevelles called daily to change their horses.

Until an Institute was built the hotelís large reception room was used for all social functions. Lodge meetings and dances were held regularly and a great attraction was the New Yearís Eve Ball.

The bar remained open until 11 p.m. During the construction of the railway line disturbances from the nearby gangersí camp resulted in a police officer being stationed in the town and part of the hotel was used as a "cooler" to impound inebriated revellers.
