TRAVELLERS'' REST HOTEL AND HONEYMOON COTTAGE,
Taita,. Lower Hutt.
C. F. WORTH begs to inform the public generally that his New Hotel and Stabling are now completed, and that hence-forward he will be able and most willing to accommodate all parties who will favor him their patronage.
The hotel is situated in a healthy country district, on the Hutt road, about thirteen miles from the city, and is acknowledged to be one of the pleasantest drives in Wellington. The hotel provides ample accommodation for parties or families who require a short respite for the benefit of their health, and proper attention has been applied to the pleasurable requirements of the place.
The hotel contains good public and private rooms, including a spacious and well-lighted Billiard-room with full size Table.
And in the ground — good Bowling and Croquet Lawn, with Flower Garden, and Paddocks for other amusements.
Every effort will be made to supply liquors and refreshments of the best brands; and the Culinary Department will receive the best attention of the Proprietor.
The Stabling accommodation is acknowledged to be ample and good, containing over Forty Stalls, including Three Loose Boxes, with the necessary requirements. A Groom is kept on the premises, and proper attention will be given to any horses or stock entrusted to his care.
Conveyances run at moderate fares from the Hotel to the Lower Hutt Railway Station to meet every train each way.
C. F. WORTH,
Proprietor

Evening Post 30 October 1877
An accident which might have been attended with very serious consequences occurred on Saturday last to Mr. C. F. Worth, landlord of the Travellers'' Rest hotel, Taita. He was driving in his spring cart at the time, and when near the Petoni railway crossing, endeavoured to pass two other vehicles proceeding in a similar direction, when the driver of one of the latter, having, it is said, pulled the wrong rein, his vehicle was as it were thrown against Mr. Worth''s (then just alongside), completely overthrowing it into the water channel. Mr. Worth was thrown violently out, and had three of his ribs fractured, besides being otherwise severely shaken. He was afterwards attended eo (sic) by Dr. Wilford, of the Hutt, and is now in a fair way for recovery.

The undersigned, who is about leaving Wellington for a time through ill-health, wishes all accounts against him to be sent in for settlement by the 1st February, and all accounts due to him to be paid by the same date, to save trouble.
Mr. W. Prosser, at the Travellers'' Rest Hotel, Taita, Lower Hutt, will receive accounts due to me and give a receipt for the same, and will forward me all other correspondence.
