This double-storey hotel was purchased by the SA Breweries in 1904. It was the main outlet for SAB Castle Lager Beers in District Six. Upgrades included enclosing an open yard to create a storeroom, adding water-closets on the ground and first floors, and creating a new entrance for the bar parlour. The hotel closed in 1930 and became the Cheltenham Bar. (Extracted from Walker 2015:19.)
