We enjoyed another very pleasant stay at The Royal - comfortable bed and good food. We stayed in one of the back rooms - very understandable fpr one night only and it was quiet. Please do something about the shower!

Our first time at a Brend Hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful. There was a small problem with the basin waste and it was quickly resolved by moving us to a better room. It was a pleasant stay for 2 nights but seemed a bit lacking in something for the price. Will we stay with Brend again? Probably.

I stayed here in March for one night. In fairness I think I got the last room in the inn, so I would hope that the other rooms were a little more spacious than the one I stayed in. The storage heater had been on when I opened the door, so it was a bit like entering a sauna. Once... More

The Royal was a comfortable base for our day trip to Lundy Island. We enjoyed the second floor room with the huge bay window and traditional flowered curtains, looking out on to the station platform, the railway line now being the Tarka Trail. The reception staff were very helpful. We also enjoyed dining in the historic Kingsley room with its... More

We have stayed at various Brend Hotels for a number of years from time to time and have always been extremely satisfied with the value and the whole 'hotel experience'. This time was nearly as good but not quite. Firstly, the good: bed, linen, cleanliness, room, attention to detail, well trained staff (generally) and the 'old-fashioned' 'Miss Marple' experience was... More
