The staff were wonderful which made our stay delightful. I would also like to thank the reception for posting my kindle, which I stupidly left behind, to me immediately. The hotel was in a very good position.

Royal Duchy is a wonderful hotel and fully lives up to its 4 star rating. Not the cheapest hotel but would recommend it to my friends. Food was excellent but a little pricey if you ventured away from the menu of the day

Much more than I expected from a British seaside hotel the royal Duchy exceeded my expectations. Very clean, well thought out decor, very tasteful. Perfectly positioned on the seafront with fabulous views if you're overlooking the front. Breakfast served in beautiful room by attentive staff. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night with my mum as we were attending a uni interview next day and as soon as we got there we were greeted by a lovely man on the door who was very helpful. The bedroom was a really good size for just the two of us and the view was beautiful. Maybe not enough tea... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very well appointed. The food was well cooked and nicely presented. Our room was well fitted and very clean but was on the small side and we had a view of the fire escape at the rear. Overall this was a very enjoyable stay and we would return but would... More

This is our favourite Brend Hotel and we have been coming for the last 15 years. Standards of service are always high and the friendly staff continue to make us welcome. This is our retreat from the stresses of life and our opportunity to recharge our batteries.
