I stayed here overnight before running the Portsmouth Marathon, only a 10 minute walk to the race start, so an excellent location of you're running the race. The service was polite, punctual and professional. When I made the staff aware of noise keeping me awake at night they responded very quickly and the matter was dealt with. My thanks to... More

Fourth return visit to the Royal Beach. Hotel situated on the saefront opposite the pier. Easy access to Southsea restaurants and bars and the shopping at Gunwharf Quays. Good accommodation with the usual amenities. Excellant full english breakfast in a lovely setting as restuarant overlooks the sea front.

Booked this hotel as it offered EV charging and as an added bonus we found a good quality hotel. Easy to get to with a great sea view. the staff were friendly and welcoming and the room clean.It also has character unlike a lot of modern hotels.

Really enjoyed a good quality 3 course Christmas dinner followed by a sensible disco in the Ark Royal restaurant. We stayed at the hotel overnight in a large bedroom with huge bathroom. Breakfast was very good. Staff were very attentive and restaurant team worked extremely efficiently. Thoroughly recommend this event next year if you can't make it this year.

My girlfriend and I stayed for my birthday weekend and had a wonderful time. The service overall was fantastic with a few fawlty towers moments but nothing to cause issue or offence with, just funny if you have a sense of humour. They knew it was my birthday so gave us room 305 very large, spacious and the views were... More

Always excellent service, great value and a comfortable stay at the Royal Beach. My preferred hotel in the area. Some rooms have minor defects which are being worked on. however in 12 months of regular visits I have not had a serious complaint, unlike some other major chains.

We visited on a very busy Friday. The hotel had several Christmas parties going on but this did not deter from the service we received. Our room on the 4th floor had a great sea view a huge bed and was very spacious. Bathroom could do with a bit of an update but was very clean. All staff were very... More
