I have just come back from a weekend of rock and roll with Strolling Steve at The Royal Hotel and had an absolutely brilliant time. Separate from the entertainment because that wasn't organised by the hotel, the whole weekend was almost faultless. The only 'negative' I have was that the room we had [which was a balcony room on the... More

Have just spent another great weekend with friends at the Royal. Our room had been recently decorated and gave us plenty of room. Although some rooms are in the process of being up-dated the hotel overall offers very good value for money. The food choices were excellent and the entertainment both nights were good. This is a budget hotel so... More

I don't no why people are moaning about this hotel.. I have stayed there many of times and will do in the future. ok yes it needs up dating, but if that did happen the prices certainly would not be as they are (cheap) the hotel has good food and a very good breakfast very chilled and relaxing, no pressure,...

Oh dear me! The room we had here was just horrendous the entire hotel is really shabby. Could do with a new mattress, unless you like the lumps. Cleanliness needs to be addressed for the whole building Staff pretty rude in general to be fair - not very good for a shabby old hotel which needs customers. did remind me... More

Just stayed for weekend coach holiday at the Royal. while bedrooms are a bit tired they are clean and comfortable. The reception, dining, bar and other public areas are modern and comfortable. the meals are good. All food is freshly prepared and the choice is OK. The staff are very efficient and helpful. Great sea views from rooms.

Paid a bit extra for a room with a balcony which was worth it for the view and to sit outside. All of the hotel is really shabby. Could do with a new mattress, unless you like the lumps. Constant humming noise all night. Breakfast really could with an upgrade especially adding some fresh fruit. Staff responses were mixed. Would... More

Don't read too much into people's negative reviews we stayed last weekend and found the hotel to be a joy to stay in . Yes it's dated but that made it even more homely . Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room 405 was great for a family room. We have no complaint and will be returning x

Great views from this hotel and just a short walk to the beach. Yes its a little dated and could do with a revamp but it's good for the price It's not a 5 star hotel so don't expect it. Every staff member we found very helpful and polite. We didn't have an evening meal but the breakfast was great... More
