The exciting plans for the refurbishment and extension of the hotel are well under way and the hotel will relaunch this September. The new look Royal Hotel will reflect the essence of the original Victorian building while integrating alluring modern twists and sophisticated, bespoke design.
The spectacular Ballroom has been totally refurbished and restyled, seamlessly combining the generous proportions and ornate period details of its Victorian Heritage with statement Italian chandeliers and a unique glass feature wall. The magnificent space accommodates up to 120 guests for a wedding meal and 160 for an evening reception and features a private reception area with a striking diamond-cut glass fronted bar and contrasting marble top.
The Royal is also a stunning setting for more intimate weddings for up to 50 guests, with two beautiful private rooms on the first floor. Throughout these rooms you’ll discover signature panelling and gorgeous anthracite and burnt orange fabrics that complement the mesmerizing, bespoke carpet that unites each space.
