I have been going to The Royal for more years than I care to remember. Even after changing hands a few times, I have not had a bad meal there. The Sunday carvery is excellent value for money, always plenty of meat and loads of potatoes and vegetables. Since the last owners took over, the decor has improved, the staff... More

Having stayed in one of the what's called cottage rooms for a good few weeks for work, I have to say it's not the Ritz but also not as bad as over precious people make out. I had an amazingly comfy double bed, I as always came back to a clean and tidy room with all sundries topped up. Sometimes... More

We stayed in the Hotel as we were going to a 18th Birthday Party. We had a double room in the cottages which was very nice and clean. We had a great evening with friends celebrating and found the staff very friendly and helpful. We booked for breakfast and it was great with a good selection. Would definitely stay again... More

I would accept that the Royal needs a bit of updating but it wasnt that bad. We went there for an 18th Birthday and the people running it couldnt have been nicer. I would accept we didnt stay there but it looked reasonable

Room was great, we stayed in the annex right next to the hotel and for the price was happy with the room and facilites, its basically what you would receive in a travel lodge, couldnt conplain about staff...

We arrived at The Royal hotel Purfleet last Friday, 15 Aug and were immediately shocked to see how 'shabby' it looked from the outside considering the website pictures make it look 'regal'! On checking in we were informed that we were in the 'annex' part of the hotel, which is completely seperate to the hotel itself. From the outside, the... More

I often have to travel up to Essex and I find it hard finding good value for money around that area, I'm not in the position to spend loads on a room , and like most people am looking for a good bargain, and The Royal is that! Before booking I had a look at some of the reviews and... More
