SITTING at the foot of Brighton’s famous jetty, the Esplanade Hotel was originally a grand two storey building with a curved front, a dome and iron lace decorated balconies.
Originally built as a hotel in the coastal suburb of Adelaide, South Australia, the building became a guest house during the 1940s after it was delicensed. A tiled section at the front was a ‘Residential Cafe’, with the remainder of the building available for tourist accommodation, before it once again became a pub in the 1950s.
In 1958 the building became the Esplanade Hotel, and it continues to trade under that name (although commonly known locally as the ‘Espy’), much altered, to this day.
