With the name The Royal, I was expecting something very grand on the seafront, however The Royal is lovely, we had a sea view room which was large and comfortable, With an amazing bright green sofa!

This hotel overlooked the sea and right across from the Promenade. There was only a couple of parking spaces in front of the hotel, and we had to park in a side street. This could have proved difficult as residents park outside their houses, but we luckily found a space. This would be an extreme problem in the summer I'm... More

Small television and a... More
