This hotel tries to give the impression that it is somthing it is not. Check in was very, very slow. Only 1 person working, the rest milling around. (no apology given).We were given our key, pointed in the direction of where to go and sent on our way. Finally finding our lift (up some stairs and then down a corridor),... More

This is a large hotel right by the Pier. We had a big room with a sea view. We were on a budget break with very good value for money. There were quite a lot of people staying which gave a feeling of popularity. there are areas that need maintenance, like the windows but I believe the exterior is undergoing... More

The room was clean and well presented. Soft mattresses and spare pillows. One big duvet but separate mattresses so we both had a nights sleep. The restaurant was a self serve, the food was good, plenty of it, but by quarter past eight (service finished at half past) service slowed almost to a halt. At twenty five past two staff... More

Reviews seem very mixed for the Royal Bath. Personally we had a fantastic stay and I think perhaps some people are quick to write a bad review for the most minor of things. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who gave detailed instructions on how to get to our room (the corridors are clearly marked anyway so not... More

Only two people on desk with a queue of 12 at check in. Approx waiting time 40 mins. Another gentleman at the desk had to wait an hour just to get his car back. We had room 265 which is a lovely room with beautiful view and no towels. After calling the reception twice over a 1hour 30min period to... More

Room was small but cosy a little cold but we had a radiator so it only mattered when getting out of the shower. Excellent cocktails and I mean excellent, best long Island iced tea I've had in a long time. Excellent location for the beach and town. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Only downside. Receptionists were rather rude and... More

Great last minute deal - £47 double incl breakfast. Very pleasant and amusing receptionist, and hotel looked refreshed. Bit of a trek to west wing room (613) but room looked newly refurbished in contemporary generic business style. Spotlessly clean and good bathroom. Bed comfy too. But radiator was half working and room was freezing. Such a pity. It was nearly... More

Other reviews say the royal bath is tired, well that did not detract from a most relaxing and good value mini spa break. The afternoon tea included in the deal price was huge and delicious, ALL the staff in the bar, restaurant, spa and reception were smiling courteous and helpful. The room was comfortable, and the beds provided a restful... More
