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
I had a wonderful weekend with my friends from my ladies club. Choice of food and quality was excellent, especially as i have coeliac disease and am gluten free.
Thank you for ensuring that the Beatty family reunion went so seamlessly. You were never less than friendly and patient despite all our demands. It was a special weekend for us and our stay in your hotel made it a success. Kind regards from the Beattys.
