Receipt, Royal Hotel, 1937

The Royal Hotel offered premier accommodation right in town and with its river views was popular with all travellers including honeymooners. The original Royal Hotel was advertised in 1841 ‘The comfort and luxuries, if you visit the Hotel Royal, will render It MONTPELIER itself’.  By the early 1930s the rebuilt hotel was described as magnificent and boasted a modern sewage system, and hot and cold water service.
