NT 9952 11/92 1.8.52.
Georgian. Fine large building in commanding position, built in 3 sections.
1st section is stuccoed, with a large ground floor window and 2 windows
each upper floor. 2nd section has clumsy Venetian windows (2 on each upper
floor). 3rd section has rusticated quoins and gable scrolls, and 6 windows
each upper floor. All 3 storeys but differing heights, all painted stucco.
Charles Dickens stayed here in 1861 and 1858, and gave readings from his
works in the Assembly Rooms which are now part of the Hotel. Stables in
rear yard dated 1782, rebuilt 1845, of little architectural interest.
