We stayed in the large King Bed oceanside suite, well worth the money spent. The room was huge for an English Country hotel. Directly on the English Channel on the 2nd floor. Clean. Plenty of towels, comfortable bed. There is a restaurant downstairs and a pub. Very convenient. We walked 5 blocks to the grocery store for food. Very nice... More

Comfortable rooms right by the beach in Southsea. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Breakfast is good and evening meals reasonable. Car parking is restricted but plenty nearby free 8pm to 8am. Lots of attractions nearby and a run down pier being refurbished.

After a bad start on finding Royal Beach had no record of my Hotels.com reservation the reception staff (alica?) was brilliant and got us a great room,very clean and a great view. The food was very good and all the Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. This was our first visit to Southsea and the location is great.

My mum booked the Royal Beach hotel for 1 night for myself and my family for a family get together. Upon arrival we were sent to the back of the hotel to a very small and full car park but managed to squeeze in. The overall decor of the hotel is outdated but certianly not shabby. Service at the bar... More

A really good hotel with good friendly staff that made our weeks holiday a real pleasurable experience. The food was of a very high standard and our room which overlooked the sea was comfortable and clean. The en-suite was very spacious and again very clean with towels replaced daily. A very big thank you to all staff and I would... More

Hotel is clean and the double room I stayed in was nice and large. The bar food is good value and tasty but a bit limited. It has a large restaurant unfortunately I didn't get to try it. There is a full range of breakfast pretty good quality. The staff are very friendly. The down side is the almost none... More

2nd visit. Room overlooking the sea, very comfortable, bathroom a tad tired and no shower pressure. Breakfast superb just wish the staff would give one time to breath before whisking the plates away. Meals in the bar were also excellent as we're all the staff. The car park is a challenge best to get there early. Well worth a visit.

Having had a poor experience hear in December last and having returned earlier in the year when we had a very nice stay at a competitor hotel, we decided to give the Royal Beach another go. Check in was quick, easy and friendly. We had requested a sea view room and this we were duly allocated, on the 3rd floor.... More

Excellent location right on the sea front. Large comfortable room, friendly staff and good selection of food on the menu. Walk along the promenade to see the D Day Exhibition, the embroidery about the event is amazing (and longer than the Bayeux Tapestry).. The Mary Rose Exhibition at the Dockyard is fascinating. Note - closes in October for a few... More
