The Terrace Hotel has been in existence since the 1930s and has been run by the present owners for nearly 30 years. The building and whole Terrace were designed by William Playfair in 1820 and the Terrace Hotel was built in the 1840s. Now classified as a Guest House by the Tourist Board, as it has no bar or restaurant, we are within easy walking distance of most tourist attractions. Prices from: £30 per person/night
The Terrace has 14 bedrooms on three floors - 11 with ensuite facilities. Most rooms are spacious - with several family rooms. All rooms have TV tea/coffee facilities central heating and supplementary heating for use as required. It enjoys many Georgian architectural features, including stone grand staircase with cupola above, beautiful lounge and dining room with elaborate cornices and some bedrooms with original fireplaces.
