The Royal Glen is a quality hotel nestling in a little valley just a minute’s walk from the western end of the promenade in the lovely seaside town of Sidmouth. The picturesque Connaught Gardens are immediately right of the prom. The hotel exudes old world charm and character – lots of wood, leather and historic artefacts. As one might expect... More

A lovely hotel in a quiet location and just a few yards off the sea front. Our room was comfortable and very clean, breakfast was good. It also has a small indoor pool and gym which was very nice. An enjoyable stay.

My friend and I have just spent 3 nights at The Royal Glen and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were most welcoming and helpful. The food was delicious - full English breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed the music both at breakfast and during the evening meals, especially the waltzes. Our room was William and was very comfortable and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Sadly we only ate in the restaurant on the last night of our stay - it was excellent with a good wine list. We only wanted 2 courses and not the set 3 courses but that was not a problem. Bedroom was nice and spacious with tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast... More

We booked a "Standard" double room for 2 nights & unfortunately appeared to have been allocated the smallest room & bathroom, compared to two other Standard rooms which we were able to view, after our first night. We have never seen such a small shower cubical. So avoid room 22 - 23 & 27 are much better for the same... More

Thank you for making a review. Your feedback did indeed come to us via reception, and was discussed how to make an improvement, but i am sorry that you felt your view point was not taken seriously. I am also sorry that you did not have the opportunity to change rooms. More

We just stayed here for 3 nights, staying here for a family wedding in Sidmouth. We were a large family party and all of us couldn't praise the hotel and staff enough. We only had breakfast but that was very good. Close to the beach, shops and restaurants with car parking. All of the staff are a credit it to... More

Room 4 for one night. It was a bit of a problem. The room is on a spot where the fire door in the outside corridor opens and closes. The corridor also creaks and soundproofing is not much good. So you hear everyone chatting away as the creak up to the fire food and open and close it. A lot... More

We and our two friends took advantage of a Spring break offer and spent four nights dinner , bed and breakfast here. This was our first visit to the Royal Glen and we all had a really nice time there. The layout of the hotel reflects the various additions made to the building over time but it is none the... More
