This is the second time I have stayed here. It is in a great location with ample car parking which is a bonus. Staff are helpful and the place is a very relaxing experience. The rooms are adequate but the bathroom could have been cleaner , when I say cleaner things like the sealant around the bath needs replacing. I... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel was smart in appearance with two large car parks which was the main reason for booking this place. Most of the other accommodation where mainly guest houses with little or no parking. Had to change room for last night as I booked the third night last minute. The first room was very small, but...

I spent 2 nights at the Royal, never having stayed in Skegness before. The Royal is an old hotel and, of course, its age shows through despite all the work done on it to keep it up to scratch. However, in many respects this adds to its charm. Her floorboards may creak and the wall-paper may look a bit jaded... More

We stayed at The Royal Hotel for our 45th Wedding Anniversary, we had spent our honeymoon in Skegness in a cheap self catering bedsit, with a toilet at the end of the hall, so thought we would do it in style this time in an Hotel. The Hotel was in a nice quiet location but within easy walking distance to... More

Only booked the week before I decided to spend the weekend in Skegness. Had tried other Hotels/Guest Houses and the Royal was showing it was fully booked on the Hotel Booking Sites (well, it was mid August). I phoned the Hotel directly who managed to fit me in. Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor, it seems to be a bit... More

Spent a weekend in Skegness in August and stayed here in a family room. It is a nice hotel with a unique décor and some lovely grounds. The location is great as you are near the front and central area but also slightly removed which is more peaceful. The hotel has it's own parking which is a further bonus. The... More

We booked to stay here as we were attending a wedding reception held at the hotel. Hotel is in a good location and there is plenty of free parking. The check in member of staff was friendly, however there was a mix up with our rooms. We had booked two twins but one was made up as a double. In... More

We stayed here for a week fron the first of August, the Hotel looks ok from a distance but a closer inspection reveals all its flaws, our en-suite room was tiny, you had to put the kettle on the floor and unplug the TV to make a hot drink, the shower was either a red hot or stone cold dribble,...
