This hotel, originally a series of private houses which were converted to a hotel during the World War Two, was situated in Cranbury Terrace. After the war the building fell into disrepair and was closed in 1961, reopening the following year under new management. A number of famous people stayed at the hotel in the 1970s, including Liberal MP and food critic Clement Freud who established a long-standing association with the hotel and always stayed there when he was in the area.
