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

We had three very relaxing days last week,food and service all that you could wish for. O,K, its not 'Bijou'. With its history would you expect it or want it to be? Just a very well run hotel which tries to make your stay as relaxing as possible. All staff most helpful and restaurant service excellent. We will be back.

I have had the pleasure of staying at many very good hotels but have never written a hotel review. Until now, for the reason that I was incensed by John from London's unbelievable comments. My husband and I had a relaxing and most enjoyable break at the Royal Glen, and would highly recommend it. The food was excellent and the... More

This Hotel was a beautiful hotel in a good position (only a short walk to sea and town centre). We had a superior room in the new wing. The room and its facilities were excellent, in fact better then most 4* hotels we have stayed in. Extremely clean. Very friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. We felt the evening meal some evenings...
