We were 12 golfers stayed 3 nights. All the rooms were very good, sympathetically "restored" whilst retaining historical features. Bathrooms spacious and along with the hotel itself clean and well presented. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfasts we had on the three mornings were tremendous, great selection, both cooked and cold buffet. The evening dinner we had was... More

The Royal is a delightful, well appointed, traditional old hotel with plenty of history - Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton enjoyed amorous liaisons here - and a superb location right on the sea front. We arrived a little early, knowing that our room might not be ready, but reception couldn't have been more helpful, getting housekeeping to finish ours first... More

Came with the kiddies for a quick drink and nibbles with our friends that live in deal so it came recommended. Friendly staff and lovely view of the beach in the outdoor patio area which is has windbreakers so not much wind to worry about. Great selection of drinks at the bar with nice ale. Food was lovely and came... More

Always receive a friendly & welcoming greeting from the staff, it is comfortable & feels friendly, food is good too. Disappointed that we couldn't have our roast lunch on bank holiday Sunday, it was so busy all sold out, note to self - go earlier, that is not a complaint by the way, just glad that it is busy. As...

We hit upon The Royal by accident when looking for a coffee/teashop and enjoyed warm scones and coffee/tea on the terrace with a fantastic view. Going through the bar and seeing what diners were having for lunch made us we'd arrived earlier. Must try to return ! Really lovely hotel/pub with great atmosphere and friendly staff.

We had a short stay in Deal and ate at the Royal twice. The food excellent and the service friendly. The Royal is dog friendly and brought our puppy a bowl of water when we walked in. We visited in April so the weather was a bit hit and miss but I imagine that sitting on the second floor terrace... More

We were my wife and me to dinner at his restaurant last week. We had no reservation, graciously seated at a table for two. We brought the letter and after ordering our drinks, made us wait a while. The waitress asked us to leave us in error because the table was reserved, we show two other table without booking cartel... More

We've eaten here a few times during the years since we moved to Deal. The food is good, staff always welcoming and helpful. Last weekend, we went for Sunday lunch in the Bar area with sea views; as always, the food was good with lots of choice. The one thing which was disappointing was the number of dogs in the... More

We met relatives for a meal and there were 10 of us - so we had a room to ourselves. the food was really good and the service was excellent. I would recommend it. There is a very pleasant bar area and on a sunny day a wonderful decking area outside overlooking the sea.
