Hong Kong Hotel

Hong Kong Hotel

The Hongkong Hotel was the Colony's first luxury hotel in Hong Kong. It was opened on Queen's Road and Pedder Street in 1868, and expanded onto the waterfront Victoria Harbour, Victoria City, Hong Kong in 1893.

The original hotel, opened in 1866, stood roughly on the site of the present Central building at Queen's Road Central and Pedder Street. In the late 1880s a six story north wing was built on the waterfront expanding the hotel, with entrances on Pedder Street, Queen's Road and Praya Central. Hong Kong's first deluxe hotel modelled after sumptuous London hotels, The Hongkong Hotel, from 1866. Competing in all respects with the owners of The Star Ferry Company, who owned the Peak Hotel, the management provided a special launch to meet arriving passengers on incoming P&O mail steamers and ferry them direct to the hotel's pier.

Even after the north wing burned down in 1929, the original part of the hotel, especially the large Gripps restaurant, continued to be well used by the public, but the hotel was eventually closed in 1952.


North Wing:

A six story north wing of the hotel facing the waterfront opened in 1893. It replaced the Melcher's Building, which itself was formerly owned by Dent & Co., where the west wing of its "princely" headquarters was located.

Completed in 1893; the hotel burned down on New Year's Day, 1926.

The site was acquired by Hong Kong Land in 1928, and Gloucester Tower was constructed in 1932. It was redeveloped into The Landmark in 1979.

Hotel Victoria that was (VICTORIA day!)

Hotel Victoria that was (VICTORIA day!)

I took a photograph of this site from the platform of New Brighton railway station at least a year ago if not more.

Highlights of the sign affixed to the hoardings:
Stunning New Development VICTORIA VIEW. The once majestic Hotel Victoria, set in an elevated position of New Brighton, is now the location for one of the Wirral’s most exciting new developments. The Grandeur of the past shall be replaced with stylish, contemporary, luxury apartments, some which will offer quite breathtaking views over the estuary and Irish Sea.

Deposits only ?500!! (at the start of the building programme).
