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
We booked this hotel as a last minute treat and were not disappointed, nice pool and leisure facilities and a gym with quality equipment. A friendly welcome at reception and helpful and attentive staff all around the hotel which was clean and well kept. We felt it was value for money and would absolutely stay again, good location for the mountains.
I visited this hotel as part of a line dance holiday. It is a top class hotel with excellent facilities. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. Food is good and waiting staff efficient. The swimming pool is excellent and there is also a gym. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to stay in the area.
