I looked around at different sites and came across the Royal Bath. I liked the old fashioned look to it and the price was comparable to others. We booked a room for my husband and I and our son. His room was a double on the second and was a nice comfortable room. Despite being at the front of the... More

Where do I start! The room keys didn't work until the 4th attempt at returning to reception. I was then told that I left the key in too long and not taking it out quick enough. I've never heard anything so ridiculous in my life. We went for a drink in the bar and the till didn't work. Paint was... More

Top tip....park next door, its £12.50 for 24 hours, the hotel is £20. Rooms are not ready before 3.00, but you have to be out by 10.00, is it just one person cleaning the whole place? Our room was fine, clean and large, only one window opened but they did provide a quiet fan. No mini-bar, but tea/coffee maker and... More

I knew something was going to be up as soon as we checked in. The staff member on reception very quickly ran through a list of directions which were impossible to follow. Thinking 'how hard can it be' we set off to find our room, using the instructions we'd been given. How wrong we were! 30 minutes later, after following... More

We were booked for two nights bed and breakfast.First impressions of the hotel were very good. After paying and checking in we went to find our room. My oh my what a shock we got. it was down a tiny corridor, barely wide enough to wheel a small suitcase down. on opening the door we were hit with a very,very... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights for a weekend break. I had stayed in this hotel several years ago for business conferences and was looking forward to returning. I could not believe how the hotel had deteriorated since the change of ownership! Firstly, the good bits. The location is excellent, so close to the beach, pier and... More

The Royal Bath is a beautiful building on the outside but once you get inside you cant help notice that the Hotel is in need of a refit. The bedrooms are tired and scruffy. The public spaces are not much better. Bascially the interior has seen better days. New bedroom doors have been fitted & the work can only be... More

The hotel is now part of the Brittania chain and I booked a Wowcher deal with mixed feelings - but 79 pounds for BB and Evening Meal in June was too good to turn down. Fantastic enormous room with sea view, brand new carpet and massive bed - very happy! Sadly the evening meal was disappointing, buffet style and poor... More

We visited this hotel for a few days for my birthday. The price was good and it is located right on the front in the town, a short walk from the centre. On arrival, my car was parked in the hotel's own parking and then I was informed that it was £20 per day. This extra cost was not budgeted... More

Have stayed in this hotel many many times on business reasons over the years so decided to take my wife here for a surprise overnight stay. Since retiring I was unaware that it had changed hands, was so dissappointed with the level of service compared with previous owners. Tables in the garden were left dirty all days with no attempt...
