And one opposite Inst.

The Kensington was the one opposite Inst. Was it the Winton Arms in High Street ?

The side door was in Victoria Street.

The Union Hotel later became the International Hotel. The Woodburn wasn't mentioned.

"Winton Arms"

Doesn't ring a bell.  But that means nothing.

And it was indeed the Kensington.

Glenmachan Towers (I should have added that as I drank there on a regular basis). The Loughview wasn't on the list. 

The Crown is listed as a hotel. Hamill's isn't listed. Would it have been the Adelphi which was on the opposite side of Amelia Street from the Crown?

I lived in Suffolk, and remember the Woodburn well. As a kid, I used to play in its grounds, there were a lot of trees on the periphery. The Rolling Stones stayed there in 65, when they played at the Ritz. We heard about it and went up and got some autographs on the concert programme. Still have it somewhere.

The other hotel nearby, on Black's Road, was the Greenan Lodge, now the Balmoral, I believe.  O0
