Had a wonderful table in The Grill room over looking the water. The carvery was superb, great choice of meat, fresh selection of vegetables, great roast potatoes plus a vegetarian option available. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The hotel is full of history and cosy corners to relax in.

We had a really lovely meal last night at the Royal Castle Hotel . We were two couples and sat at the side of the window opposite the inner harbour. The service was very good and the atmosphere was lively and busy. The meal was four courses and was a set menu which on this occasion was a good thing... More

The Royal Castle is situated central, more or less spot on in Darthmouth, you can't miss it of you visit this charming town. The atmosphere is warm, the staff is helpful and nice. The room I had was large, clean and had its quirky charm, the Brittishnes if you could say. The hotel bar has a very appealing charm, and... More

Beautiful location right next to the river. The staff are always attentive and polite. Explore all the rooms on line not two the same. Food is always a must and is served hot and sourced locally. Lots of offers on all year round.

On a recent weekend break we ate at the Royal Castle. The service was excellent,the staff friendly and the food lovely. We'll definitely eat there again on our next visit. They have got it right and the fact that it is always busy reflects this .

My husband booked a two-night stay for us and 6 friends at the Royal Castle, along with the Fawlty Towers dinner, as a birthday treat for me! On arrival we found that all four couples had been given a complimentary up-grade to harbour-view rooms. We greatly enjoyed our stay, the food and service were excellent. We cannot recommend the hotel... More

Enjoyed a few lovely days at this hotel. The room was beautiful; the bathroom indulgent. Service throughout the hotel was excellent. There are so many people working there, all happy and helpful. The evening turn down service was much appreciated. Not only was the main bed prepared, but the dog bed was plumped and the tea tray replenished. We booked... More
