After a busy few months, me and the other half decided to take a well earned break. We wanted to do absolutely nothing. Royal Beacon Hotel seemed to be the one we were looking for, so we decided to go for the Double Room. The Price of £105 per night including breakfast seemed reasonable too. We arrived on the Tuesday... More

I stayed in the beacon for three nights in august 2015 and on balance was happy with the hotel Pluses : minutes from.beach and town centre so did not need car. Bed very comfy and room quiet. Substantial breakfast. Large room big enough for me to practice yoga ! Mostly friendly obliging staff. Minuses : the decor is very dated... More

Dear Vata68 Your report is quite extensive and provides some valuable feedback for both ourselves and for guests reviewing our hotel, via this popular site. So thank you for taking the time in providing your comments. Obviously there are restrictive areas around a building, that is over 200 years old, that limit both access internally and with our small car... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. We opted for the set lunch menu allowing you to choose either a starter and main course or a main course and dessert for a brilliant price. All 5 of us chose a main course and a dessert. The food was simply sensational. I ordered the chicken Sunday lunch. The chicken was so juicy and succulent... More

Beautiful historic facade. Room (budget double i.e, no sea view) was immaculate and unscrupulously clean, white is an extremely unforgiving colour for bed linen and towels, both of which were spotless (trust me, I watch four in a bed!)! Staff were friendly and accommodating, allowing us not only to check in early (normally 3.00pm but we had arrived at 6.30am... More
