My wife and I stayed in The Castle Hotel for one night at the end of a week travelling around. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the room (No 15) was wonderful. The views over the river were fantastic and it is a lovely way to watch the world go by. The breakfast was also good and whilst... More

Just returned from a five night break at this wonderful hotel. The holiday gets off to a good start as the staff remove your luggage and then valet park the car for you. We didn't bother using the car at all, boats and trains can take you everywhere you need to go. The room are all different and have their... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the best homemade chicken and mushroom pie ever tasted and chicken burger and fries. Fab bar-man kept all entertained, will be returning! May be an advantage to find a table early in the bar tho. The restaurant looked beautiful and staff were very pleasant when we said we didn't require a la carte at lunchtime

Bargain offer on a Sunday night. This is a real old-time hotel with lots of charm. Amazingly busy on saturday night in the 2 bars - lots of atmostphere. The main attraction is the location on the harbour front with great views. Also an easy walk to the excellent Seahorse restaurant.

Having been let down by another local restaurant, where we had booked a table for 12 but arrived to find the restaurant closed, we asked at the Royal Castle if they could fit us in at the last minute. And they did, laying out their private room within 20 minutes, and looking after us very well throughout the evening. We... More

We didn't stay here but we ate, several times! Breakfast is amazing...upstairs, wide range of choice, excellent service, beautiful view. Lunch...the seafood chowder was so good we went back for it 3 times over the time we stayed. Sunday lunch has to be booked but we couldn't believe the value and quality. We had our "last supper" before we left... More

I called for lunch today, 2nd July, and must say how very good it was. The chicken and ham terrine was superb and the lemon sole delightful - perfectly cooked and nicely presented. Although the bar was packed there were still a few odd places available and I thought most diners were very accommodating to the needs of others. The... More
