THE ORIGINAL HOTEL IN DROMANA, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA.
It was the SCURFIELD HOTEL, first mentioned on trove in 1858 when it was being run by Richard Watkin who established the Dromana Hotel in 1862* (*according to his statement in an 1880 advertisement.)
George Assender renamed it the Arthur's Seat Hotel, under which name it burnt down in 1898.
