We spent two nights at the Royal Hotel, the room was clean and comfortable with a good view over the bay. The hotel has six rooms, five of which have sea views. We had one meal in the evening that was very good, also enjoyed the breakfasts that are cooked to order and served from 9am which to be honest... More

We found the hotel a very reasonably priced place to stay overnight although breakfast was extra apparently. Girl who welcomed us was very friendly although bar staff could be a bit more knowledgeable. I would recommend getting a room with a sea view. Decor could do with updating and it would be nice for their best room to have more... More

We stayed at The Royal Babbacombe Bay for Valentines W/E. We had a lovely room very comfortable & clean, with great views. (Room 6) A very nice touch was a single wrapped red rose left on the bed on the 14th. Food was enjoyable although breakfast was not included.

We stayed at the hotel just for one night, the room was spotless and very comfortable. Bathroom was small but ok for us as we are are small people. Plenty tea and coffee in the room and nice biscuits. Parking was ok but we were in Feb I guess it may be difficult in the summer. Staff were friendly and... More

Helpful staff, breakfast was excellent as was the lunch, room very clean and worth the money, wonderful view from the cliff top. The prices charged at the hotel bar are that you would find in a normal pub.

Our room was very spacious, spotlessly clean, bright and with comfortable beds. The bathroom was large and was again exceptionally clean. Although our room faced the car park in the main we were still able to enjoy the wonderful views to Exmouth and beyond. All the staff were excellent, we were made to feel welcome on arrival and this continued... More

A party of 8 took over rooms 5,6,7 & 8 for the weekend. Each room was different but to a lovely high standard and we all popped in each other's room for a "nose!" The views over the Downs, the sea and far into the distance, Exmouth etc was breathtaking. The staff, lead by Janet, were very helpful, friendly and... More

A clean and friendly hotel. I was in a room that is advertised as potentially noisy but did not notice any issues. Large room, huge shower and good facilities, No Wi-Fi in the room, or at least no information given about it in info book or by staff, but I didn't ask. Friendly and pleasant staff nice room and good... More

Lovely hotel with a fantastic position overlooking the sea. We found room seven to be a spotless and comfortable room with a nice bay window to sit and admire the seaview. Bed was extremely comfortable and the huge bathroom had an excellent shower. Plentiful supply of tea and coffee in the room which was replenished daily when the room was... More
