Appraisal

This house, although extensively renovated to accommodate use as an hotel, appears to retain much of its original form and some of its early character. The house retains some important early or original salient features and materials, which enhance the historic quality of the composition. The house is an important component of the streetscape, forming the corner linking Bridge Street with O'Connell Street, and retains a distinctive identity in the hotel complex through the higher pitch of the roof.
