This hotel is a little tired but overall friendly. Free parking but car park cramped. Service was friendly and helpful. The food was adequate and well served. The room was large with a good sea view. Good for visit to historic dockyard.

My wife arranged a surprise 60th birthday party for me at the Royal Beach. Apart from the obvious delight at seeing faces old & new from near & far, the evening was a great success thanks to the great service & attention we received.

We have been coming for the last three years and it is obviously a thriving hotel with consistently high standards. Go east for walks along Eastney beach, go west for pub suppers in Old Portsmouth (eg. the Bridge... More
