Having read some very poor reviews we were worried about having booked this. However, we were pleasantly surprised.The hotel is in great need of refurbishing but our room was large and clean with an excellent view over the coast. The staff were friendly and efficient. The price was very low and obviously this is a great appeal to coach tour... More

Booked to stay 2 nights in the Royal Hotel ( 14th - 15th April) we had a twin room and it cost £86 for the 2 nights, so expectations of the hotel were not very high. This price did not include breakfast, this was available for £6 each, we did not have breakfast. A 3 course dinner was also available... More

If you're looking for luxury, top class service, fine dining and modern decor, you might want to go elsewhere. If you want value for money or even a bargain, then try the Royal Hotel. The lukewarm receptionist set the tone and the hotel has seen better days but does have a sort of time-travel charm. The room was large and... More

We were looking to book rooms for upto 52 people. Luckily we were warned off by a friend. Unfortunately some of our guests had to stay here. It needs condemning. The manager was rude. The place is so run down and dirty, you wouldn't want a stray dog living there. We were forced to share our rooms at a much... More

My wife and I / friends arrived late around 10pm at night, seemed promising as we had to park in the overflow carpark on a high hilly area. The walk down from the car was scarey as there was no roadside lighting as you walked down the v steep hill, very dangerous!! The receptionist seemed put out when we asked... More

Was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews, yes it could do with updating but for £55 per night bed and breakfast what do you expect? Our room was fine, bed was comfy and linen clean, bathroom was clean too. Breakfast was good and staff were very nice and friendly. On the whole it compares very well with... More

Ok we stayed at the Royal Hotel as it is quite difficult to book just one nights accommodation in Woolacombe and I guess you get what you pay for. Yes it's cheap, yes the floor boards creak and yes the bathroom was slightly rank. It is also the only hotel I've even been to that has three pianos and not... More

My wife and I travelled to Woolacombe for a family wedding with the plan of staying one night and if we liked it we would extend our stay. The TripAdvisor ratings looked okay and it seemed apparent that it was an okay budget stay. I have to say we could not leave quick enough the next day. The rooms were... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights in this hotel, I do agree that it could do with a facelift but for me there was more to the hotel than that. We found the staff really friendly and helpful, always a nice greeting when you went to reception, the food was perfectly acceptable and good value. We were out every... More
