Salutation Hotel, Perth

There has been an inn on this site since 1699. One of the stories of the the origin of the name 'Salutation Inn' is that it comes from the meeting of John Burt (the proprietor) and the shaking of hands between himself and Prince Charles Edward. It is said that the Prince did not sleep at the inn but used it for meetings. The link is recorded on an external plaque on the distinctive early 19th century façade - this implies that the name was already in use at the time of the Prince's arrival.


Plaque on street frontage accessible at all times.
