Camden Crescent and Townwall Street
Having entrances from both roads, this was erected in 1956-57. The site had been acquired post war by Watney, Combe and Reid, brewers, for £4,250. The licence of the then demolished "Burlington Hotel" was bought from Dover Corporation for £750 in 1955.
It was a condition that the brewer would surrender the "Trocadero Bars" and that licence was therefore transferred here on 23 May 1957 when the business commenced. One of the bars perpetuated the name 'Trocadero'.
Grand Metropole became the owners in 1971, Haven Inns in 1972 and Queens' Moat in 1982. The same year ownership passed to Ian Whittaker.
The small size of the hotel was the cause of its demise in 1988. In June that year permission was sought to demolish and erect flats in its place. Assent came quickly in July and removal commenced in October. As 1990 opens, only private cars utilise the site. Still the same April 2007.
