The Royal Marine Hotel was designed as a private home for
a northern industrialist in 1913 by renowned Scottish architect
Sir Robert Lorimer, who was also commissioned by the Duke of Sutherland
to restore Dunrobin Castle, which had been ravaged by fire in 1915.
The ambience of The Royal Marine Hotel owes everything to Sir Robert
Lorimer: The wooden arches of the entrance hall; the formal dining
room; the panelled snooker room, and the grand staircase all contribute
to an atmosphere of quiet elegance.
