The Trevelyan Hotel, High Street. Double-ribbed ceiling identical in design to the single-ribbed one at the Golden Lion Hotel except for enrichment. Pattern built-up from squares set-apart and linked by ribs arranged in octagonal foliation, from each cusp of which springs a cast spray. Cast ornament occupies the centre of each panel. On ground floor. On the first floor in room on left of stairs is an enriched rib ceiling which has been somewhat mutilated. Coved in elliptical form, and has a central pendant from which radiate ribs forming four lozenge-shaped panels, part of a repeating pattern. Curved ribs making hollow-sided or cushion-shaped panels intersect, and from their points spring large sprays, partly modelled and partly cast. Composed of pinks, roses, daffodils and foliage. The escalop shell occurs in the small panels. There is a single ribbed ceiling on the first floor in the room to the right.
