Very clean and friendly Hotel. Area fantastic,close to amenities. Would definitely go back at some stage. Staff were very helpful and friendly, food was brilliant. Location was right on seafront. Parking was not very good, had its own car park but its first comes first serve.

Visited twice in the last 6months and enjoyed it every time. Best steak we have had for a long time on the Friday night special. Staff friendly and nothing too much trouble. Lovely coastal walks. We will definitely be back again.

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.

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.
