My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in late July. Our room was slightly outdated in respects of the bathroom and old fashioned TV and curtains but was spacious, clean and must have recently had a make over as it had new carpet, new bed and seemed to have been recently painted. Your view of the hotel probably depends... More

Looks tatty from the outside. Nice hotel,in the process of being "done up" The staff (apart from reception) were lovely. The rooms were very clean but the beds were vey hard Only 6 channels on the old tvs. Phone reception poor,wifi patchy. The food was fantastic, a multi choice hot buffet. The pool area was seriously in need of modernising.

We had a balcony room. Carpet was tired, décor needed updating. Bathroom was dated but shower and bath were fine. It was too windy to make use of the balcony (cold July weather!). BUT we had a fantastic time. The breakfast was always lovely, the pool was warm and full size. The best part was the shows and the friendly... More

We stayed at the royal for 5 nights in July and we had a wonderful stay. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was great. The towels were soft and fluffy and bedrooms comfortable. Recommended for an enjoyable stay.

Location, car parking, lashings of hot water, all excellent. Décor lets the hotel down, but this is reflected in the budget price and I found room 102 was fresh and spotless with white linen and towels. Food of reasonable quality and variety, so no complaints there. Breakfast was a bit late for me as I like to eat at 7.30... More

All staff are really good, the man behind the bar (Darren)looks after all who comes in and knows how to keep the wine cool . I was there with my wife for a short break and had a good time that,s all we wanted
