The Hollins Hey was built in 1870 and was originally called 'Hollins Hey'. Peter Wright, an attorney by profesion, and Clerk of the Peace for Liverpool (1844-77) resided at Hollins Hey. His third son, Albert Wright, was quite prominent in Wallasey as he held many government posts including being elected as Alderman. He also establised the Wallasey Central Library (Earlston).
As for the building it was later renamed 'Wirral Court Hotel' but the name was reverted in the mid 1990s to Hollins Hey Hotel.
