I visited on a busy Saturday evening, I really enjoyed my curry down in the bar, and the atmosphere was great! The selection of wine was wonderful and we enjoyed the New Zealand Sauvignon. My friend had the fish and chips which was huge, the chips are really chunky, apparently it was lovely, make sure you're hungry, portions are huge!... More

Found this interesting hotel whilst on a Dartmouth day trip and on first reflections it looked decent. The Galleon Bar was cosy and welcoming, but the food was a bizarre mix of substantial and substandard. Cheese ploughmans, filling and tasty though on a very small plate, but the salmon sandwich was ludicrous and resembled something from a lunchbox rather than... More

Faultless as the owner Mr Way and his staff welcome you like a lost friend, but behind those smiles lies a hotel run with perfection. All operations from valet parking of your car on arrival, to being appointed to our room, 26 on the upper deck, with wonderful river view, or a drink at the bar, all are carried out... More

We only stayed for a couple of nights but we had a delightful top floor room with four poster bed and a super view of the quay. The hotel is as central as can be and although the food and drink is a little less sophisticated than in bigger cities - it was all clean, well presented and delicious. The... More

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
