A return visit to this hotel where we were greeted by friendly welcoming members of staff. We found that the room, 205, had been well prepared and benefited from a sea view. We had dinner in the restaurant where the menu offered a good choice of dishes, including a carvery option, the food was well presented and very tasty. We... More

We too were part of the SAMA weekend at the end of March. Our biggest regret was not being able to stay longer as everything about the hotel was perfect. We had a corner room with a dual aspect of the seafront. It was really lovely with a Queen sized comfortable bed and a settee. The bathroom and tea making... More

We had an exceptional rate for this room so were not expecting much but on arrival had a seaview room which was large and had bay window with table and 2 chairs as well as a huge bed. It is in central Southsea on the seafront and also easy access to Portsmouthl. The dining room is lovely with large chandeliers... More

We have just stayed here for a night partly using Best Western points. We had a large sea view room which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size with plenty of storage space and a bath! All the staff were friendly and the service was excellent. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast at the hotel... More

I stayed here for 2 nights over Mothering Sunday weekend. My mother and I were in Portsmouth to see the Anton Du Beke show. Whilst the Royal Beach is more in the style of a traditional South Coast hotel ie slightly old fashioned and dated, the service from the staff was excellent. I could not fault the care and attention... More

The Royal Beach is always clean and the staff very friendly. Breakfast is buffet type and good quality compared to other Portsmouth Hotels. This is the quiet end of Southsea and about a 25 min walk to Gun Wharf at a normal pace. Parking is a bit tight but no worse than the other hotels in the area and after... More

Stayed here March 28th to 31st for our SAMA 82 AGM. We can not fault this hotel Staff, Food or Rooms they were 1st class. Hope to have our AGM there again one day. Shame the pier was out of action as the hotel is right opposite, but the shops were just a taxi or bus ride away.
