We recently visited this hotel on a half board basis, having seen it on lots of visits to this area. We cannot fault it. The room was a sea view with plenty of space and beautifully appointed. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and the food most enjoyable. Ample choice and well presented. It is ideal spot for... More

Pleasantly located on the Sea Front with rooms on 4 floors and good Restaurant and Bar facilities. The only short fall was the below ground floor car park, which had little headroom and required parking skills in the tight spaces.

My Husband and I stayed here at the beginning of May and had a lovely weekend. The rooms have all been upgraded and the meals were very good. The breakfast choice was very good, as for the staff nothing was to much trouble. For them.

We parked on site. Limited parking arrive early if you want to park. Check in was ok. Hotel is fine, if a little dated. Room good size. Bathroom was not up to the standard you would expect for the price you pay. Black mould around bath area. Loose tiles on floor, grout missing which meant it felt unstable to walk... More

My husband and I visited last week and stayed for 4 nights. This hotel as has been mentioned by other reviewers, is a 'Grand old lady'. She's showing her age a bit but in my view that all adds to her charm. Ideally placed for visiting Portsmouth and right on the seafront it was the perfect place for us to... More

The service and attention given by all the staff at this hotel is amongst the best we have experienced. Of particular note - we were upgraded to a fabulous sea view room, the housekeeping team on arrival found that we were celebrating a family wedding and changed the lovely towel art to the romantic swans, on leaving the hotel for...

It was our 49th wedding anniversary and the Royal Beach 'Best Western' gave us a room with a view, overlooking the beach and a historic pier. The parking was free which was great because there was no parking to be seen in the area. The room was clean and spacious. They are located near many sites and within close distance... More
