Stayed at the Royal Marine Hotel on Saturday for 1 night. We had a lovely sea facing room on the third floor (a bit of a climb). It had a double and 2 single beds. We all had a great sleep, no noise to be heard and comfy beds. The bathroom was big and had a bath with a shower... More

When we arrived, we were given the key of a room and told it was on the second floor. As we climbed the stairs the temperature... More

Rooms are very dated although we found them very clean. Tv and free view box very dated and controller did not work. The room was warm and quite and a good night sleep was had. Breakfast was good with a good choice, service was very good and overall good value for £58.

The only fault was the old fashioned very... More

We just turned up off the ferry and the manager gave us a sea facing room on the top floor. The exterior looks superb but the interior, while old and original, needs some TLC. Our room was clean and had everything we needed although the TV was a bit small. The bed was very comfy. We ate in Ghillies bar,... More
