Over 160-year-old Greyhound Hotel in Australia’s St Kilda closes down

Published on : Friday, January 6, 2017

greyhound-hotelThe 160-year-old iconic Greyhound Hotel, situated at St Kilda in Australia, decided to close down for the travellers forever. On Friday, 6th January, the management officials of the hotel formally stated that due to the latest developments outside the control of the hotel owners, they were forced to close the doors of the hotel for the travellers.



Apart from the hotel, another pub, adjoining the Carlisle Street and St Kilda Road, got marked for demolition, which gave birth to several campaigns.



The statement issued by the hotel management said that despite recent headlines regarding the development potential of the GH hotel site, this was not the reason for the closure. It also said that keeping the GH hotel open for the community was always the priority of the owners but unfortunately this was now no longer a viable option.



The hotel authorities announced about the closure on Thursday, 5th January on the social media platform ‘Facebook’. The post regarding the closure immediately received over thousand comments from the visitors. Several of them thanked the hotel for providing support and safety for the LGBTQI community of Melbourne.



In December 2016, the Port Phillip Council assessed that it was not applicable for the hotel to get any heritage protection.



While issuing the formal statement on Friday, 6th January, the owners and the management of the hotel said that it was a pleasure bringing the visitors world-class entertainment, in a venue that was a safe space for everyone.
