Just spent 2 nights here, and have had a brilliant time. Cannot think of anything to criticise, extremely friendly and helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. We had a balcony room to celebrate a special occasion, and have had the most lovely weather and time there. I agree with other reviewers, the only slight drawback is the parking, but... More

We have just returned from a family weekend at this hotel, 5 adults and 3 children and really nothing was too much trouble. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel very welcome and at home. The rooms are well appointed, and the beds were extremely comfortable - everybody slept very well. The bathrooms were a little... More

My second trip to this hotel and firmly established now as one of my favourites. Upon arrival the manager and many of the staff remembered us from our previous visit which was really nice given we had only stayed for a couple of nights. We stayed in the Nelson room which is wonderful and has a balcony overlooking the sea.... More

We stayed two nights in one of the rooms with a balcony which is just yards from the sea. The hotel is old and they have managed to keep the character of the building while still making it comfortable and homely. We loved sitting on the balcony and looking out at the sea, the promenade and the pier. Deal has... More

We stayed here over the weekend, had a lovely room, the food was good and the staff were very helpful. The location was great with views to the sea. The only problem we had was the small car park which can fill up quickly.

We decided to visit Deal and chose to visit The Royal Hotel because we had a Shepherd Neame birthday voucher to use and we were really impressed. Very friendly polite staff. The look of the Hotel was lovely! Food was really enjoyable we couldn't complain at all. Well worth a visit and we shall return as really enjoyed eating there.... More

First time back to the Royal Hotel for a while. Beautiful day, nice staff, great pint of Masterbrew, nice lunch, but who on earth had the idea to replace the nice tables and chairs with crude benches all lined up like a school dining hall? Awful. Had one pint, one course and went somewhere more comfortable.

Its not very often that you get the chance in England to be so close to the waters edge in a hotel room. We had a great time exploring Deal and its history, great coffee shops and restaurants. Sarah, Katie, Cathy and the rest of the team really looked after us and Sarah's knowledge of the area was Baedeker like... More

Had a great stay here. We had the William Pitt room which was huge, with a fantastic bath room. Breakfast was great & the bar was nice place to enjoy a view of the beach. We'd stay here again as we have family in the area & this give us a good base.
