We stayed at the Royal for 2 nights, and very glad we hadn't booked in for longer. Reception welcome was poor. We enquired if we could get a bar snack that evening, since we had enjoyed a hearty lunch en route and were told No. Dinner is between 6.30 and 7.30, no chef on site after 8.pm and if we... More

Friendly welcoming reception. Stunning location. Excellent buffet breakfast. We had a sea/countryside view room with balcony. Decor and furniture dated and tired but very clean comfortable bed and furnishings. Access to the rear carpark is very steep.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during a mini tour of the West Country. It was our first stay in Woolacombe and we were disappointed to find so many pubs and cafes closed - some only opening at weekends and others not open at all until Easter. The hotel must have been great at one time but is... More

This was our fourth visit to the hotel. Very good value and and excellent food. Vegetarian meals were better than anywhere else I have stayed. There is a wonderful pool which you can swim in from eight in the morning until nine at night.

This hotel has a stunning location near the beach at Woolacombe Bay. Although we enjoyed our stay, the hotel is in need of a refurb. It has an indoor pool, which although clean, is very tired the hotel itself is dated and old fashioned, particularly the decor and furniture in the rooms. Having said that, the place was clean, the... More

Just got back from weekend break at the Royal, treat ourselves every year to a break here. From the greeting we got at reception we knew it was going to be another wonderful stay. We were allocated a room with a sea view and balcony at no extra charge which was nice. The room itself was very nice, plenty of... More

Stayed here via a Leisuretime coach trip mystery weekend. Apart from the miserable receptionist we had a wonderful stay. We paid £49 each for the trip and was not expecting much. Arrived at the hotel and was allocated room 408 which overlooked the fields and had wonderful views of the sea down the road. Our room was dated but very... More

After reading some of the awful reviews about this hotel it really made me think after we had booked it. But I must say we were pleasantly surprised. Ok it's a very dated hotel and really needs updating but the staff were very polite and helpful. The hotel was comfortable and very warm considering it was middle of February. The... More

We stayed here for one night as a stop off before our week at a local caravan park. This hotel was very shabby looking from the outside the car park was very steep and quite frightening but couldn't be helped. From reception and first impressions hotel seemed ok. We checked into a family room and it was in desperate need... More
