The original Boatrowers Hotel was established in 1887, with a licence granted to Mr David Hutchison. 

On 16 May 1927, the Newcastle Sun reported:

Tooth’s Ltd informed Stockton Council that it purchased the Boatrowers Hotel from trustees of David Hutchinson. The company intends to demolish the present structure, which is of weatherboard, and to erect an up-to-date brick building. The council had complained about the unsafe condition of the balconies, and had already decided to take action to force the estate to carry out necessary repairs. The advice from Tooth’s Ltd. that it intended to rebuild and that in the meantime steps would be taken to safeguard the public from any danger, in regard to the balconies, was considered satisfactory by the council.


The new building was constructed in 1929 to plans by local architectural firm Pitt and Merewether, which designed many Tooth's hotel builds and rebuilds of the time. A similar style can be seen in the Burwood Inn Merewether, and the Exchange Hotel (now Lambton Park Hotel), both of which were also built in 1929. Pitt and Merewether also designed the Gladstone Hotel Stockton, in 1937.
