We have just returned from a two night stay at 'The Royal' and it was nothing short of excellent. Our room was very big in comparison to other hotels we have stayed in which cost more. The room had a sea view, not just a small glimpse, or an obstructed view, but the whole sea for miles. The room was... More

The staff are helpful and friendly, the bedrooms are clean and tidy , the breakfast has many choices to cater for all needs, the bar is a very stylish upmarket bar and has a tapas restaurant included, the location is great with a restaurant either side of the hotel and only a short walk to the centre of town

Popped in here to use the recommended Noir facilities and was suitably impressed. Staff very attentive, food great and no long wait to be served. Granted it wasn't busy but even so prompt delivery to table.Well worth a visit and recommend.

The Royal Hotel is just above the beach which itself is nice; sandy and has interesting rock pools to explore when the tide is out. Fish & chips, ice cream and arcade just a few minutes walk, and the town centre 5-10 minutes walk. Davanti (Italian) restaurant is next door to the Royal Hotel which is handy, and is a... More

Its a real pleasure to stay at a hotel which is so clearly managed professionally and with pride. Extremely good value, immaculately clean and with a splendid breakfast. Front rooms have a fantastic panoramic view of the North Sea.

Parking was a little difficult as the spaces directly in front of the hotel are for the use of patrons to the Italian restaurant next door. We only managed to park near the hotel late at night. If you chose to park on any of the side streets nearby be prepared to pay. Upon arrival at the hotel we were... More
