I do not wish to put any travelers off from staying in this hotel but my experience was not perfect. I presume recent positive reviewers did not venture into the Gents toilets on the ground floor near the bar. I went into the toilets before checking out and they were not good. The toilets in the first two cubicles had... More

Thank you for your comments, I can not give excuses for the toilets but we did have five functions on the Saturday with a huge volume of guests using that facility, why it had not been cleaned overnight is something I will look into but can assure you it is not a frequent occurrence. With regard the humming noise in... More

We used the Hotel for our base for a five day coach trip There were two other coach parties staying there which was unbelievable as the service, checking in process and standard of the rooms and food were all exceptionable. The rooms were excellent and there was nothing too much trouble for the staff who were very friendly yet very... More

The location of the hotel is great and is opposite the beach and a lovely view and across the road from the hotel. The pier at present which is opposite the hotel is at present under refurbishment and would add to the activity to the area. The area has no overwhelming noise to disturb guests at the hotel,although wedding and... More

We have stayed at the Royal Beach previously so it was good to see refurbishment was now taking place. Check in was easy and efficient and our room was very spacious with twin aspects overlooking the sea front (shame about the pier being closed/renovated!). Breakfast was very good and staff helpful and friendly. The hotel was busy as it was... More

Knowing that a colleague had used the Best Western Royal Beach Hotel previously and was happy, I thought I'd book it for some one-to-one meetings. I'd arrived an hour early as I was intending on having lunch prior to my meetings beginning. Nevertheless, staff showed me to the meeting room which was in a state of untidiness from a prior... More

The hotel was great for us, the rooms were very comfortable and the views from the seaview rooms were great. We didn't eat at the restaurant but had a meal from the bar which was nice, though there was an issue with raw batter on the fish which staff dealt with fairly well. The only other downside is that the... More
