Description

The Young and Jackson Hotel was first licensed as the Princes Bridge Hotel in 1861, comprising the corner bar and 21 hotel rooms above. By 1921 the hotel had expanded across the neighbouring bluestone warehouses and significant renovations were done on both interior and exterior to make a cohesive fa├žade. Renovated again in 2000, the interior was updated to its current format.
