I stayed in a twin room with my friend. What a wonderful experience! The room was clean, with an ensuite shower/toilet. (I noticed that other hotels within a similar price range had shared bathroom facilities.) Breakfast was included in the price, and was lovely (the usual full English, buffet cereals, juice, yoghurts, croissants etc). They were happy to cater for... More

Friends weekend away and it was lovely. Reception staff were very friendly and accommodating. Cleanliness was excellent, the room had everything you'd need and the beds were comfortable. Our room was at the back of the hotel so quiet at night, although some if our group at the front had some noise. The breakfast was lovely with a lot if... More

Booked two rooms for a two night break including dinner. Only ate in one night though due to an inflexible attitude to serving one child a meal off the bar menu in the restaurant. Ended in cramming us all around a table in the bar whilst restaurant stood half empty. Tried to negotiate with the restaurant manager but he feared... More

I am replying as one of the owners of The Royal Hotel. I very much regret that these guests did not enjoy their stay with us primarily it would seem because they chose to select dishes which are on the bar food menu as opposed to the restaurant and therefore were asked to dine in the bar dining area. Although... More

I was slightly apprehensive after reading some reports relatng to this hotel but to be honest I shouldn't have worried at all. The hotel is fine, and staff very friendly and helpful. Yes it's a bit tired in places and needs to be redecorated and updated but on the whole it was good. Hotel was very warm, we had to... More

Firstly there is no doubt that if you want convenience this is the perfect hotel, the location is perfect, literally opposite the train station and metres from the shops. For what we needed (being on a hen weekend) this was ideal. However the location does come at a cost, it is very noisy at night. I have seen on previous... More

I am replying as one of the owner’s of The Royal Hotel I very much regret that this guest had to suffer noise on this particular occasion from people leaving a bar/nightclub in the early hours of Friday and Saturday mornings.

Stayed for a girlie shopping weekend with a friend. The rooms are clean, but need a fresh lick of paint as does the rest of the hotel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We booked parking a week ahead and were told we had booked space in the hotel car park. When we arrived there was no record. So we... More
