This hotel was bjuilt in 1865 and was the first hotel erected in Charleville. It was built by Luis Janetsky for Robert Cooper. Soon after it was purchased by Janetsky and known as Janestsky Hotel, later the Victoria Hotel. The parlour of this hotel was used in 1866 for a celebration of the first mass in Charleville. It was demolished early in the 1890s and re-built. A fourth building on the same site in Alfred Street was erected ca. 1960. (Description supplied with photograph)
