The Dover and Deal Directory and Guide of 1792 mentions a Charles Marieť as Innkeeper at the "Royal Hotel, and a Marieť is also mentioned as being there in 1863 as well when mention is found regarding his death. The venue is listed as in Snargate Street but seemed to end with the death of the Proprietor, Marieť, about 1863. It then continued as a coach office.

Further information received from Jeff Howe tells me that the premises was insured by the Sun Fire Office as early as 1788 and 1789.
