Stayed overnight with a business colleague. The ball room had been decorated really nicely for xmas and we were well looked after by the lad behind the bar. The room was the biggest dissapointment as was in need of a good refurb. The balcony was not seperated from any other rooms so could imagine this could be unsettling to other... More

The hotel was clean, warm and comfortable with excellent views. Some of the carpets were a little worn and the paintwork/wallpaper showing its age but this did not bother me. The dining area had been nicely decorated for Christmas and the hotel had a nice atmosphere.

We have stayed at the Royal Hotel, many times over the last few years just as a couple, and also with our family, after it was recommended to us by friends, who had stayed there in the past. Every time we receive a warm welcome, and have always managed to check-in to our favourite room, which will remain a secret... More

We saw an ad in a Sunday newspaper for the Royal so we gave it a try. First impressions were, a great position on the hill as the road drops into Woolacombe giving impressive views over the bay and the moors to the side. On closer inspection, there are signs of wear and tear and a bit of updating required,... More

Brilliant Hotel, partly overlooking the sea, stayed in room 200, lovely family room, modern shower, fantastic view, with our own balcony. Breakfast was really enjoyable but needed a bit more variety, and self service. Evening dinner was very enjoyable but menu was repetitive. TV was very low in our room and could not see it, we did complain but nothing... More

Hotel somewhat faded and in need of a redecoration. Our room and bathroom was dated and could do with a refit. However the hotel was very clean, with good service and plentiful good plain buffet style food.

Threadbare carpet, springy thin mattress, very very tatty room and balcony. Very pricey for what you get. Am sure was great in the 60's but now is dirty and tired. A shame as some great spaces - ballroom etc and views beautiful but needs a major update. Only stayed one night to avoid travelling on a friday after 4 days... More

I have been to the Royal on several occasions and really enjoy it there. It is a little dated but the food is excellent and the staff are really nice. Good entertainment nightly. I'm off again there next weekend be interesting to see all the changes they have made since my last visit.
