Great description by Pauly T as a graceful old lady. She was creaky. She could do with a bit of an update. Parking is tight. Some parts have stopped working (heating in my room) but oddly none of it seemed to matter because it's just a nice place to stay. I booked a 'value' room so got no sea view... More

The Royal Beach fully lived up to the standard we have previously experienced in a Best Western Hotel. Accommodation and dining are of a high standard with good Wi Fi room connection, but it is the staff who make these hotels special. Everyone in reception, bar and restaurant was so pleasant and polite, and eager to please. It makes a... More

Thank you for a very detailed review of the hotel and the services we offer, I am pleased you had a good stay with us and I will look at ways of improving the directional signage to the rear of the Hotel. We now charge £2.50 supplements for kippers and smoked haddock at breakfast as it was becoming apparent that... More

This is my favourite place to stay. Like a graceful old lady residing by the sea. Sure she's a bit creaky but why shouldn't she be, she's an old girl and a wonderful part of the Southsea skyline. The staff are always brilliant. I stupidly left my wedding ring in my room. I called the hotel and spoke to a... More

A traditional uk seaside hotel. Was mainly full of white van men. Nevertheless check in was quick.the room was small but comfortable. It did get warm throughout the night despite the heating not being on. The bathroom was in need of refurbishment. For a one night work stay it was adequate. Arrive early if you want a car park space.

Thank you for your comments and I am pleased you found everything satisfactory, we are refurbishing bathrooms as I write which will give the rooms a more modern feel and I'm sure you will see a difference if you visit again, but don't expect to see Manuel in the restaurant, best wishes, Chris Gilmore GM More

Having looked at reviews before coming, they were mostly positiv. So that helps. Our stay was very comfortable and staff polite and atentive. Food was to our liking. Only one negative comment. We enquired about Bike Hire & reception staff did not know of any nearby cycle hire busines. As it happened, we came across D2R Cycle Hub, Clarence Esplanade,... More
