In 1898, Alexander Smith opened Harvey’s first hotel, behind the site of the present Harvey Hotel. Smith recognised the potential growth of Harvey and the need to provide temporary accommodation for those visiting.

He built a single-storey wooden establishment and named it the Korijekup Hotel.

In 1908, the original building was replaced with a brick establishment which is part of the ground floor of the present Harvey Hotel. The owner requested the name of the hotel be changed to the Harvey Hotel in 1911, but this was initially refused by the Wellington Licensing Court.

Designed by architects Eales and Cohen, the second story was added in 1917, creating a large Federation-style, two-storey brick building. Finally receiving approval, it was renamed Harvey Hotel in 1926.

Leadlight windows with an Art Deco geometric pattern and 1930s style furnishings illustrate a revamping during the Inter-War period.
