4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Not a luxury hotel and a touch of paint here and there would have made a huge difference. However our room was comfortable with a super sea view, always hot water, clean and plenty big enough with good storage. The food was good and extremely quickly and efficiently served, staff pleasant. Very good position overlooking the quaint and picturesque town... More

A few days away with my sister and our husbands and we were so excited, we deserved this break and had been saving for ages. The journey up had been awful taking 12 hours so we were grateful to be given an evening meal upon arrival, the food was good too and remained delicious through out our stay, we were... More

Most residents at The Royal are older people, obviously they know a bargain when they see it ! The hotel was built in the mid 19th century and is a listed building and rightly so. It's a grand old place, even if it has lost some of it's former lustre. Its position couldn't be better and it's certainly worth paying... More

It was mum and dad's choice for a short four night break with them having stayed there before when they were more active. We had some concerns regarding the hotel after looking at some of the reviews below. But what we found was a comfortable hotel with great staff (in all areas). We had booked a Premier Room with sea... More

I must admit I was disappointed with certain aspects of your review. The Royal is indeed an old building and with this comes some of the issues you felt worthy of a mention. We have refurbished half of the bedrooms with a further number due to commence in a couple of weeks. Room 205 is a family room hence the... More

I believe this hotel was built during the Railway mania of the late 19th Century, it certainly looks like a grand hotel of that era. I think some of the hotel has been refurbished although other bits I'd say are original. The lift is one of the smallest and slowest I've ever seen, it only holds 4 people and then... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your mixed review. The hotel was indeed built circa 1860 with connections to the Railway and in the 160 years since then I can confirm that all areas have been refurbished (many times over). I’m concerned as to your comments regarding the “Premier” room. All of our premier rooms are to a... More

Stayed here in August with my two boys. The location couldn't have been better within a short walk to the harbour and shops. The hotel staff were first class and nothing was too muchtrouble.

Nice hotel, very warm . Good entertainment , but not Sunday Night . Dining room tables too close together , bit cramped , even for the staff. Bar prices extortionate, which tends to spoil the holiday . Overall Staff very good
