Clarendon Hotel, Oxford Terrace

May 1902

This two-storey wooden building was originally the home of William Guise Brittan. In the 1850s it was sold to Rowland Davis who altered the building and it became firstly 'Davis's' and then the Lyttelton Hotel. It became the Clarendon Hotel in 1870. It had two wings at right angles to each other with a small balcony running around the inside angle. By the 1880s it was in some disrepair and was condemned by the Licensing Committee in 1902 and replaced by a concrete building. The licensee from 1901 was Herbert W. Morton.

The Clarendon Hotel

Circa 1935

Designed by Joseph Clarkson Maddison, this replaced the former two-storeyed hotel in 1903. Only the façade was left when the present Clarendon Towers was built in 1987. In the foreground is the statue of Robert F. Scott that was sculpted by his wife, Lady Scott, in 1917
