Later the Uxbridge Arms Hotel hosted lavish balls and entertainment for the Adelphi Society, where ladies wore long gowns and stunning jewellery and men graced the dancefloor in dinner jackets, high collar points and cravats
The hotel’s stables and coach houses were extended in 1810 and became some of the finest in the country, forming an enclosed courtyard with tack rooms, grooms’ quarters, farrier and smithy
At around the same time the hotel also gained its own exclusive park and walkways, right up to the foot of Twthill rock where the road now runs
Queen Victoria stayed in 1832 with her mother and in her honour the hotel was renamed the Royal Hotel
Conversion work took place in the 1960s but it is only recently underindependent, family ownership that the Celtic Royal Hotel has reconnected with its past while modernising for the present
Just spent a really nice New Year at this hotel on an organised excursion by Coopers coach tours of Grimsby. Coopers organisation was first class from pick up until return, Steve the driver did everything to ensure we would enjoy the weekend. He pointed out places of interested and interesting facts about them and along with several jokes etc he help make the holiday very pleasant. At the hotel the check in and suitcases taken to our rooms was without delay.the room was spotless and cleaned to a high standard each day. The food was excellent and service very good.Considering there were almost 200 guests there was a choice of 3 or more starters,main courses, and desserts and all were served promptly. There was entertainment each night. Overall Coopers and the hotel provided a high quality service and would recommend them to anyone.
We stayed here for our last night of a bike tour. It was a very lovely, relaxing stay. The food in the evening was lovely also. Easy check in, very helpful staff and extremely clean and tidy. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone passing through.
