Housed in a 1783 building with a colonial-era vibe, the memorabilia-filled iconic heritage hotel has been shaped by the hands and minds of generations of families whose memories and influences have contributed to the unique heritage. Since 1783, The Elgin Fairlawn has stood on the junction of Madge Lane and Sudder Street.
The building had existed on this site since 1783. It was built by an European Mr William Ford who purchased the land from Sheikh Ramjan and Bhonay on the 27th May 1781. The street was originally named after Ford.
The longest staying guests in The Elgin Fairlawn were the Kendal (Bragg) family. Their daughter is the famous British actress Felicity Kendal.
