The Rob Roy Hotel has had an unbroken existence since first licensed under that name by Robert Peter in 1840. The land was town acre 523 bought by James Cronk and John Bragg in 1838 and the first hotel building was probably a single storey cottage, shown in an early illustration, standing on the site of the present eastern (1881) wing. Robert Peter bought the property in 1842 for eighty-five pounds, suggesting no further improvement up to this time and resold to Peter Smith in 1853 for 1,680 pounds, suggesting that the present two storey western wing was built between 1842 and 1853.

In 1872 the property was bought by Thomas, Margaret and Barbara Smith and the two storey eastern wing was built in 1881 to the design of architects English and Soward. The earlier western wing remained largely unaltered until 1926, when the facade was renovated including minor changes to the openings and a new parapet.

The hotel was leased to Sir Edwin Thomas Smith's Brewery from 1867-1900, to the S A Brewing Company from 1900-1922 and the Walkerville Cooperative Brewing Company from 1922. In 1938 it was bought by the S A Brewing Company. Internal alterations were made in 1978 and further internal alterations, associated with construction of a new single storey wing in sympathetic style on the eastern side, were made in about 1985.
