I stayed at the Royal Glen for 4 nights with my 10 year old daughter and 7 month old baby. There was plenty of parking. On check in there wasn't anyone to help with my bags. As you can imagine I had quite a bit with a baby but it wasn't to much of a problem and I managed, luckily... More

My wife and myself decided to take a last minute break in Sidmouth and we chose the Royal Glen Hotel via their website. Booking by phone was very easy and dealt with by a very pleasant and friendly lady. We decided to book a superior room with dinner and breakfast and arrived to be taken to a very nice, large...

Stayed at the Royal Glen for a long weekend in July. Very difficult to find fault with any of the weekend stay. The décor and furnishings sit perfectly with the age of the building. Facilities both in our room and generally at the Royal Glen are good. We used the pool- thoroughly enjoyed it. Has a nice little bar area,... More

We stayed at this Hotel for the first time this year, staying four nights plus breakfast. A historical building in tranquil surroundings, a short walk to the town and even a shorter walk to the seafront. We had a standard room, overlooking the garden area. We found it quiet and peaceful, the bedroom a reasonable size, nothing too modern or... More

3 trips to Sidmouth in the space of 21 days and 2 stays at The Royal Glen. We arrived quite late, early Sunday morning the first time, to be greeted by Mrs Bess who was waiting up to book us in. This is a lovely hotel with friendly staff and excellent breakfasts. Would certainly stay again.

This hotel is a very nice place to stay. It has a Victorian period atmosphere carefully blended with modern comforts. The staff are friendly and efficient. Problems are sorted with a smile and speed. The restaurant manager is always on the ball and dietary requests dealt with promptly. Food is very good but perhaps could be more varied. It is... More

Stayed at the Royal Glen this weekend for a family get-together - in all there were 12 of us of varying ages. Its a lovely quaint hotel in a great location just behind the Victoria Hotel. I have read through some of the reviews and whilst there aren't many bad ones I still think people are really unfair! Ok so... More
