Because the last 3 day New Year’s trip 13/14 to the Royal Hotel in Woolacombe with Urquhart coaches was such a pleasure we decided to give it another go this New Year in the hope it was just as good. I’m a big believer in not going back twice and maybe spoiling our first experience with this hotel but we... More

We have just returned from another wonderful Bridge group holiday at this hotel. It is not the poshest but the staff are wonderful, the rooms are spotless with comfortable beds and the food is unbelievably good for the price we paid. The place has a certain graciousness with comfy sofas for the older people amongst us but also has a... More

Hotel is in a good location perched above Woolacombe and it's long sandy beach. Family room was more like two rooms, reception staff good, breakfast was tidy enough and the staff very efficient but the main star was the night porter who managed to find a paracetamol for our ill son....that man is worthy of a knighthood or at least...

We've stayed at The Royal several times over the past 15 years and are really sad to see that it isn't being kept up to date. As all our previous stays have been in rooms overlooking the car park we requested a balcony and as the hotel is located on a hill overlooking Woolacombe, the view was absolutely gorgeous but...

Just come back from a twixmas stay. Used to be buzzing but no atmosphere. Really going down in my opinion. No Biscuits or shower products in room. Food ok but now no fresh fruit at breakfast and difficult to find anything other than frozen vegetables for dinner. Chefs smoking outside back of building, Shame, possibly our last trip
