The York Hotel is a heritage hotel on Hannan Street, in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.


The hotel is located at 259 Hannan Street, between Wilson and Cassidy Streets.


The hotel was built by John Crothers in 1900-1901 for landlord and proprietor, Henry Edward Laslett. It was designed as a two-storey building in the Federation Anglo-Dutch style by architect Daniel T Edmunds, who also designed the City Markets, another historic landmark building in Kalgoorlie. The foundation stone was laid on 5 September 1900.

The hotel opened on 23 February 1901. It was leased to Peter McLachlan, who had previously served as the manager of McPhair's Hotel on Collins Street in Melbourne. The facade was renovated in 1974 and 1985.

It still serves as a hotel and a restaurant.


The hotel is one of the more photographed buildings in Kalgoorlie due to its design.
