The Marlborough Hotel

The Marlborough hotel
The Marlborough Hotel site at 145 King Street Newtown has housed hotels since the 1860s. The first was the Daniel Lambert Inn which was replaced by another hotel to be called the Marlborough Hotel in 1901. The first Marlborough was replaced by the present Marlborough Hotel in 1940.

The hotel is part of an important group of interwar Hotels located on King Street, which also includes the Union Hotel and the Town Hall Hotel.

The building was designed by John M Hellyer. It is also known as "the Marley".
