William and Zara took a room on the top floor of The Carlton in 1910 to become the hotel’s first permanent residents. They came straight from their wedding breakfast in her parents’ home, to that room overlooking the town and the sea. He carried her, not only over the hotel’s threshold, but up three flights of stairs to the wonder of the housemaids who peered over the railings to watch him approach, bearing his bride in his arms.
