After reading previous reviews on the royal hotel weymouth, we decided to book the hotel for our yearly holiday. On arrival there was no welcome, when we eventually entered our room it was like walking into a sauna, the window only opened 3 inches and there were no fans available till the next day. The food was good but not... More

Admittedly we were not guests at the hotel, but given there wasn't a decent restaurant in sight on the front in Weymouth this seemed like a good place to eat. The food was frankly below average...the chicken caesar salad was greenish white as all it contained was shredded iceberg lettuce & chicken slices & piles of dressing, the ploughman's...shameful. No... More

We have recently had a marvellous holiday at The Bay Royal hotel! We have stayed at a number of Shearing hotels and this is one of the best!! The location is superb, just cross the road and you are straight onto the beautiful, sandy beach. My mum's room was a slightly more old-fashioned decor but extremely comfortable and clean. She...

The perfect location, right on the seafront and if you're lucky you can park right outside, the staff will give you a notice to pop on the windshield to park free. A nice, large hotel with some nice modern décor added which mixes old and new. Fairly average dinner - 3 courses - but the dining room overlooks the sea... More

As you drive along the sea front, you eye is immediately caught by the impressive Royal. Built in 1897, with the foundation brick laid by Queen Victoria. It took two years to build,opening in 1899. George 111 visited it. During the war Glen Miller is said to entertain troops here. It's a splendid example of Victorian architecture. On entering the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Royal is an impressive building of intricate architecture built in the ‘Free Renaissance’ style and boasting fantastic views over the beach and bay. Only a short stroll to the shops, seaside attractions and the famously beautiful harbour and marina, the location could not be better for exploring all that Weymouth has to offer. Despite its imposing structure, the Royal is enjoyed for its warm and friendly atmosphere. The hotel benefits from a games room and comfortable lounges in which to enjoy the entertainment. During the day you also have the option to relax in the public bar whilst you admire the views overlooking the bay. ... more   less
