Weymouth In Old Postcards and Photographs
The Royal Hotel circa late 1890s
 The Royal Hotel opened in 1897 on the site where, previously, Stacies Hotel had stood.   It stands as a tribute to the Victorian craftsmen who built it. Eric Ricketts (The Buildings of Old Weymouth) describes it as having ‘’just that touch of opulence required to season the austere dignity of the earlier terraces’    To its left is the fourth of the buildings by Hamilton, which adjoined Gloucester Lodge showing their distinctive Georgian proportions  and embellishments. Beyond on the right two buildings were demolished and replaced  with two shops and The Royal Arcade.
