After reading some reviews on here, I was a bit concerned about what we were letting ourselves in for. This was gifted as a Groupon to myself by someone else. On arrival, we recieved a very warm welcome from the man on reception, and this friendliness continued throughout our stay, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. However. ..this hotel... More

We had a College reunion at the Royal last year, and as we usually move around the country for our annual reunions, we tried to find anywhere in the UK that offered us as good a deal as the Royal. We had tried to book The Stratford Manor but they got sniffy and wanted us to sign a contract as... More

Had a wonderful stay at the hotel and spa.. The 3 course meal was absolutely beautiful! A lovely room with brilliant facilities! Wonderful staff and great night time entertainment in the hotel would recommend to everyone to stay at any point in the week.

On a spur of the moment visit we decided on the royal .The price was reasonable at 52 pounds a night with breakfast included .On first glance looked very nice but after a closer look it looked tired and in need of a lick of paint .When we eventually retired after a meal at a local Chinese restaurant we were...

Having just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel I have to say that although it is faded it is charming. I saw how hard that all the staff were working and I really appreciated this. I have to mention the lovely lady in the bar, I don't know her name but she was slim with short dark... More

We have just returned from a one night stay at this lovely traditional hotel. The first room we were offered was at the back of the hotel and was a bit dated with a view of a brick wall. The Receptionist kindly offered us another room overlooking the sea. The entertainment was very good and the breakfast was plentiful. The... More
