The double rooms are dated and cramped. The family rooms are remarkably spacious and the pool is a fantastic extra considering the cost of the hotel. The receptionist is sarcastic but helpful and the bar staff very accommodating. The evening entertainment is good considering the lack of audience response on the nights we stayed. I really enjoyed staying here. Yes... More

The bed was clean and comfortable, however the TV stand stuck out into the room leaving only an 18" gap to the bed. I tripped over it on the way to the toilet and hurt my foot. The bathroom was shocking. Holes in... More

We were a group of gardeners on a coach trip to visit gardens in North Devon. My room was tired, but very clean and I slept like a log. The food was plentiful, the staff wonderful and the hotel was spacious. The entertainment was excellent and most of my group of "gardeners" danced the night away to brilliant live music... More

We chose to visit this hotel, it was not that clever on the way to the room we looked out of a window, fab view but how long will the window stay in the wall the wood work was rotten and a smell of new paint, but you could see the effort to keep it in working order. The room... More

We have just returned from a three day dancing break at The Royal Hotel. Although the hotel is a little dated it was clean and warm and I cannot fault the staff who were all extremely helpful and the food was excellent and plentiful. A really good value for money break.

I brought my friends down for the weekend and we had a great time at the Royal. A little dated, but clean and super food. Staff friendly and helpful great value for money. No wifi in rooms but in public areas around reception. Will definitely come again, my friends are planning our next stay. The beach at Woolacombe is fabulous... More
