We stayed in the Wellington Room which has a great balcony overlooking the sea - you could not get much closer. We stayed there for 2 days in October. The room, the location could not be better. The breakfast was excellent and the staff very pleasant and helpful. All Niall we had a great time and hope to go back... More

Location is amazing, building is good but the service is lacking that special something. Over the past few years the food quality is on a downhill path I do hope they resurrect this as it is such a lovely place, with the potential for supremacy.

This has got to be one of my favourite places to sit and relax outside, watching the sea, people watching and sipping a glass of wine.... However I have also been in the evening, which is less enjoyable to sit and enjoy a glass of wine indoors as it is out. I have also eaten here twice, firstly I had... More

An absolutely delightful place. Wreaks and creaks of history in a wonderful way. Only stayed one night and wished I could stay longer. Get a room facing the Channel and fall asleep listening to gentle waves. Had breakfast only and it was good. Decent selection of beers as well.

We were in need of a cheeky escape from the London rush and went to Deal. We stayed at The Royal Hotel and it was fantastic. The staff (and in particular the receptionist) could not help enough and made dinner reservations, late check out and just all round lovely people. I cannot recommend the hotel enough and will be returning... More

Upon arrival the receptionist was excellent. My friend and I had particularly chosen two of the three large rooms with wooden balconies overlooking the sea. My friend was in the Wellington which had a very spacious bathroom (including two hand basins) with accessible mirrors - I wear contact lenses and actually need to get close up to the mirror on...

Very disappointed in the service and manner of the staff at the Royal. Vacant tables are not clean and service to get food and drinks was very slow. Expect better as the prices are not cheap and you get much better value elsewhere. The roast dinner is very poor as it is dry, not much of it and no flavour... More

This hotel is in a lovely setting right by the sea, staff are for the most part extremely friendly and welcoming and it's nicely decorated with a great seafront bar. There's nothing wrong with it - but it's just not in quite the class that it thinks it is and it is expensive for what you get. We had dinner... More
