Residential Licence - South Australia

Description

A Residential Licence is required by Motels, Guest house operators and other accommodation providers who intend to sell liquor:

  • on the licensed premises at any time to a lodger for consumption on or off the licensed premises
  • to diners in a designated dining area for consumption with or ancillary to a meal
  • to persons attending a reception for consumption in a designated reception area
  • to persons attending a function at which food is provided

The Residential Licence is subject to the following conditions:

  • the licensee must provide accommodation for a member of the public upon request; and
  • the licensee must, if a lodger requests breakfast or an evening meal, comply with the request (but, the licensee is not obliged to provide breakfast before 8.00am or after 9.30am and is not obliged to provide an early meal before 6pm or after 8pm).

Where it is intended to provide cottage or bed and breakfast style accommodation for a maximum of 8 persons, a liquor licence is not required. However, it should be considered because it may give significant benefits through being able to purchase liquor wholesale.
