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

Oh dear me! The room we had here was just horrendous - I couldn't work out what the smell in out room was but it was a cross between a mould and a damp smell that was so strong it just makes you feel sick. We ate down in Woolacombe down to not liking be cleanliness of re whole building... More

Excellent value for money in this tradtional family hotel. The views are stunning, encompassing the spectacular hillside of the combe and the vast and beautiful bay of Woolacombe. Never bettered in all our wanderings in Europe. As with all 'mature' hotels that offer good value for money there are shortcomings such as tired carpets and occasional dodgy plumbing but this...

This is now my 5th stay and yes it's a bit thread bare but it offers great food (as much as you like) a great pool with towels provided. The staff are very friendly. My family can't wait to go next year. It offers superb value for your money.

This was our fourth visit to the Royal and I am so pleased it is still there, still independent, still has charming shades Fawlty Towers and still has that world-class view over the rolling hills to the crashing waves on the vast beach below. They really need to make more of the view by revamping the balconies - they are... More

Large family rooms with bunk beds and section within the room, great when you have 3 kids. Super location for woolacombe and cheap. The rooms and the hotel are very tired and in need of decoration and the hotel is on the budget side. Some of the staff are need customer service training. Although the pool is dated, it is... More
