My wife and I stayed at 'The Royal Beach Hotel' for a long weekend from Friday to Monday, November 21 to 24, as part of a group of about 85 dancers. All facilities used were as good as one could have wanted, bedrooms were comfortable and warm and those that had sea views were well worth the extra a few... More

Nice welcoming hotel until the bar / restaurant person called "Sarah" came along. Obviously she was hungover (I hope)- she was firstly too busy counting coins to serve me then completely insulted me with a smile that was held up by an airplane hangar

One night business stay. Bed a bit hard but staff very helpful and overall policy appears to be one of flexibility towards guests. Hotel is positioned right on the seafront with frontal views across the Solent. Good way to spend breakfast/evening meal - and food was excellent

Although the inside of the hotel was a bit tired looking, we received a very warm welcome with the staff going out of their way to accommodate an early book in. The bedroom was huge, (we could have had quite a party in there) and the bed comfortable. The bathroom, again was a bit dated but the shower was powerful,... More

Thank you for your review, I am pleased you had a good stay with us albeit with a couple of hiccups, at the time of your visit we had two large groups staying for differing celebrations who requested large tables in the restaurant, this did cause a shortage of tables for two and is not a regular occurrence, but we...

I stayed on a cold, wet Wednesday in November so probably didn't see Southsea, or the hotel at their best. The hotel is a large Victorian building on the sea front, with a sweeping stair case, high ceilings, long corridors and large rooms. Its easy to imagine the well heeled visitors of yesteryear heading down to the pebbled beach with... More

Once again I had the pleasure of staying at the Grand Beach, Accompanied by my faithful Canine partner. She enjoys this property as much or more than I. She is spoiled by staff and other guests as she moves about beside me. Stopping to be petted and if lucky find a treat. I have written of this Hotel a few... More

I recently attended as part of a group for a line dance weekend, this is the second time I've been to this hotel. The rooms are lovely - I had a single, and unusually, it was a decent size with a good side view of the seafront and coastline. (As a single traveller I am more used to the broom... More

Thank you for a nice review of the hotel, I have noted your comments re bar pricing which we will discuss at our next meeting, we create approximately 60% of our own deserts and purchase a selection from a local patisserie so I am sorry you were disappointed, hope to see you again, best wishes Chris Gilmore GM More

I found all the staff helpful and the rooms are spacious and all your needs are met. The beds are comfortable and there are tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast options are wide ranging and good quality. I would definitely come here again I've been very impressed.
