In the novel The Body in the Library, The Majestic Hotel is a grand hotel in Danemouth. Miss Marple and Dolly Bantry went there to find out more about a girl who was found dead in the library as Gossington Hall.

The Majestic is believed to be based on The Imperial Hotel, a well-known actual luxury hotel at Torquay during Christie's time and which is still operating.
