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
Stayed here on the last night of a coach holiday. Cannot fault it. The best meals we had had all week. Dinner and breakfast were superb. Small niggle, those with cooked breakfast found it difficult to get passed the people having continental. Friendly, welcoming and homely.
Diolch yn fawr iawn i'r staff i gyd am weithio mor galed i wneud ein priodas yn ddiwrnod i'w gofio, gyda bwyd blasus a threfniadau ardderchog. Roedd pob dim mor drefnus a does gennym ni, y teulu a'r ffrindiau i gyd ddim ond camoliaeth uchel am y gwasanaeth a gawsom gan bawb yn y Celt ar y diwrnod. Priodas Eleri & Rhys
