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
First class stay Very impressed with the hotels staff and the hotels facility's. The whole family thought its the best hotel we have ever stopped in. We stop in hotels about five times a year home and abroad so very well done the Celtic Royal.
Thank you so much for making our special day so perfect, the food was lovely and there was plenty of it, everyone commented on how lovely the Celtic was and the service was excellent. Thanks to Sian for all her help and guidance and for ensuring we had the day we'd dreamed of.
