Room had 4 light-bulbs missing - why was this not checked? Bathroom was gloomy. Could only see TV if in bed, not from the sitting area. Breakfast service was non-existent - sat for 10 minutes with no sign of movement to serve us from behind the counter - did they think we sat there just for the view? No lift... More

Came down on an impromptu visit to see family. Booked one of The Royal's family rooms. Very spacious and beautifully decorated. Had dinner in the bar and food was very tasty. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and the staff were all very attentive. Lovely touch to offer fresh milk "delivery" for the in room tea/coffee and hot chocolate facilities. My 2 boys... More

We live in South London. Flying with 2 and 3 year old is a nightmare. So we went to Deal in Kent. I remembered it was one of the cinque ports so knew it had history. What a lovely place. The Royal Hotel sits right on the beach, our family room overlooked the sea. A nice big room and the... More

Nice hotel beautifully situated right on the beach front. We had a very nice room called Captain Parker which had a very comfortable double bed along with two bunk beds in a separate room. Very handy in the event of ones partner snoring! We and a group of friends enjoyed a fun evening and saw in New Years Day with... More

Celebrated the arrival of 2015 with friends at the Royal. Whilst the hotel has seen better days decor wise the atmosphere was good and from the moment we stepped through the door customer service was second to none. Without exception the staff could not have been more helpful. Special thanks to the manager, the staff who without any hesitation rearranged... More

The decor is very nice, but, starting to look a bit tatty, and not in a shabby chic way! More like in need of a very good clean. We had a private function room which was far too warm making a lot of us feel uncomfortable. also the room was very brightly lit. It would have been more atmospheric if... More

Booked their only wheelchair accessible room and was delighted with all aspects. Plenty of space and a very well thought out bathroom with bath AND walk-in shower. Lift only to 1st floor and room on street side of hotel. A sea view would have been a bonus but no complaints given the standard of the room. Excellent breakfast options and... More
