The Majestic Hotel
The Majestic Hotel
The huge Majestic Hotel was built at the height of Harrogate's popularity as a spa in 1900. Unlike other hotels in the town [until the 'International' some 80 years later] it was made of brick and cost over a quarter of a million - a large sum in those days. The trees and bushes in the foreground mask the site of the former glazed 'winter garden' which was over 8000sq ft in area and was adorned with palm trees etc. The winter garden was damaged by a German bomb in 1941 and was demolished in the seventies. In 1955, the 5 star Majestic offered B&B from 32/6d [approx 1.63] and dinner from 12/6d [62p] - a bargain!
