I was totally entranced by this musty rotting dark gloomy Hotel when I first went through it in 2001, it was frozen in a time warp - sadly neglected, rotting quietly away, inhabited only by rats, druggies and squatters..... amazing, so much ghostly atmosphere which will soon be gone forever... ..here are some fantasy photos of this Historic Grade 2 listed building, I have tried to capture the magic and the mystery of this once grand elegant Edwardian Hotel Royal, enjoy......
