It was the Hotel California, but the new people decided to change the name. It's going rapidly downhill frown

Ronnie Harrison!! Now there was a Legend. They were also the last tenents of the The Pier Hotel leaving there around October'89 to move to the Castle which they finally got open around 2 years later by buying the place.

Ronnie always wanted to find out if his was the only pub on a roundabout?

Answers on a postcard if you please

Hotel California is going to move out the Castle in May 2018 and into another premises in Birkenhead.

No idea what is going to the Castle but looking at the roof there hasn't been much maintenance going on.

Royal Castle/ex-Hotel California is currently undergoing soft demolition for reclaiming and recycling the contents and fixtures.

Proposals are to demolish it although I can't find official notification of demolition having been given as yet.

Is this correct?
Found it on Wirral memories saying, "Royal Castle Hotel
New Chester Road, Tranmere, Birkenhead." No date
Certainly doesn't look like the same pub. Was it knocked down and rebuilt?

Rebuilt, look at the overlay map you posted.

Nice spot Bert. Didn't even think of looking at that map and assumed the hotel that is there today was original.

After the fire in 2019 the Royal Castle (currently called Revolver) has suffered much more decay and vandalism, now planning permission has been put in to demolish the remains and rebuild a new five storey hotel with a steel sheet exterior. The application also states it will create 20 full-time and 30 part-time jobs.

https://planning.wirral.gov.uk/onli...b=summary&keyVal=_WIRRA_DCAPR_113023

Its a shame the new building hasn't got the odd turret or castellations as a little nod to the past.
