There is no tip that I can give on how to choose a room because you will only get what the receptionist will allocate for you. I have been to The Royal in previous years and have not had any complaint. However I was down there last weekend with a group of people and I have to say that the... More

We booked 4 nights b&b. Arrived and found lift was not working so had to carry bags to second floor room. When we left the lift was still not working. The hotel needs extensive modernisation and lots of tlc. It is sadly very tired looking and this is reflected throughout. Our shower in the bathroom went from freezing to scalding... More

Stayed at the Royal this last weekend. Was promised a specific room when we rang and booked a few weeks before due to complaining about a previous visit. On arrival was given room 212. Once again the bathroom was antiquated, wall paper and coving were hanging on for dear life, carpets threadbare, riddled with damp and balcony totally unsafe with... More

Having read some reviews, I wasn't expecting too much and the hotel lived up to the expectations. Although it was a cheap deal, I think we've been spoilt by staying in places like Premier Inn where you know what you're getting (cleanly and consistently decorated, good bathrooms) and can also get rooms cheaper than we paid here. The bathroom of... More

The room we were in needed updating, spacious with a balcony with a sea-view, the bathroom was large with a walk in shower, a little dated but very clean, as were all areas. Dining room also had sea-views, we had breakfast only which was plentiful and had a good choice, value for money for a large hotel.

This a truly awful hotel,in a poor decorative state particularly the two bedrooms that my wife saw. The staff on reception were unhelpful,and would not change the initial room on the fifth floor,which had a shower which was coming away from the wall,very shabby decor,and windows which were very dirty.Did I not mention? The lift was also broken,and her room... More

Stayed here last week with my husband and son. Ignore the negative reviews. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food very tasty. Rooms, although a bit dated, are large, clean and bedding smells fresh. Darren in the bar is a great guy. Craig on reception is very funny. We will definitely be booking next year. Thanks for a fab stay.

The hotel was very conveniently located for the beach at Woolacombe. No need to take the car down to the beach. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We didn't use the pool as the evenings were always nice enough for use to spend the time on the beach, and during the day we were out exploring North Devon. The... More
