Seven Stars Hotel

Seven Stars Hotel

The Seven Stars Hotel is typical of the development of many of Adelaide’s hotels. It was built in 1857 and periodically altered and added to. Its present form dates from 1880, when substantial alterations took place.

Joseph Orchard’s family owned the Seven Stars for almost 50 years. A paver and bricklayer, he probably helped design and build his own hotel. The family were responsible for the substantial extensions of 1880-81. They chose a naively detailed and simply constructed version of Adelaide vernacular architecture, with a shaded main facade, simple surrounds to openings, and a roof concealed by a parapet. A ground-floor verandah to Angas Street that was removed in 1961 has been reinstated.
