This was our first trip to the north east. This hotel is fantastic & the staff are even better. Room: We stayed in room 12. It is massive (look at the pictures), well decorated and very clean. It has a sofa area overlooking the beautiful promenade and a comfy double bed. Coffee/tea making facilities were also available, however only thing... More

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

This review is for the Noir Restaurant as we didn't stay at the hotel' We were using a Groupon for Tapas in the restaurant. The Tapas was excellent, a good choice of freshly prepared dishes which would have been good value even without the Groupon (Special deals between 12 noon and 7PM weekdays anyway). The service was friendly and very... More

For the price and location, it was OK for us. We booked late on a Friday and were pleased to get a room for the same night. We paid £140 for 2 nights, 1 room, 2 adults, with free WiFi and breakfast included. However, the room was not the nicest we have stayed in. The towels and sheets were clean... More

We needed a hotel and it was late in the evening. We had stayed at a hotel in Whitley Bay the previous night. But wanted somewhere a bit nicer. We had seen the Royal on late rooms but thought it was a bit expensive. Anyway it was getting late and we were tired. We managed to get a room at... More
