We had a lovely stay at the Mount Royal. The service was outstanding (thanks, Tom!) and the view from our window was fantastic. We were looking out over the bay towards St Michaels Mount and the hotel supplies binoculars for looking out for wildlife, including dolphins. We weren't lucky enough to see any dolphins, but enjoyed watching some of the... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights this August. It is a nice place, but a bit too old fashioned for us (young couple). Everything - decoration wise - feels like it has been there since 1960. The room and bathroom were both clean though. Tiny shower, tiny basin, no window / good airing in bathroom. We are... More

We chose to spend a long weekend here to celebrate our silver wedding and were very pleased that we'd chosen the Mount Royal (having first considered a trendy little boutique hotel further into town).

When booking the Mount Royal we read some of the previous reviews. As with so many other types of comments we thought it was over elaborated. How wrong we were! It was understated elegance. From the moment the front door was opened and viewing the hallway and sweeping staircase we felt satisfied. Our front facing room was idyllic with two... More
