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

The service was friendly and very... More

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! Large shower room, wish it had a bath in it but it didn't, so had to contend with a shower only. However that said,... More
