The iconic Pumphouse Hotel
has changed its name
In 1987, a pioneer in the themed Hotel game, Betty Jenkins, took a tired and run-down St Andrews Hotel and renamed it as patrons for the last 30 years have known it as The Pumphouse Hotel.
Upon upgrading the façade of the Hotel recently, the current owners Tony and Anna Vujic discovered the embedded logo of the original name of the Hotel. Coupled with a major renovation to the bar and dining area in late 2017, this brought about the decision of re-naming.
Our new branding for the St Andrews Hotel incorporates the Ancient Legend of the Celtic “Tree of Life”. The tree, amongst other things is the symbol of rebirth, strength and friendship which are all qualities the Hotel possess now and has done in its 150-year history.
We will always respect and fondly remember the years as The Pumphouse Hotel, although at the same time we will embrace the history of the Hotel and continue our journey as a new and exciting venue now known as the
St Andrews Hotel - Fitzroy
