Been a few years since last visited this lovely hotel on the Esplanade. It has been totally refurbished, ( in keeping with the history) ,excellent food and lovely staff. Book a table near the window and enjoy your meal while looking out over Port Phillip Bay.

Since the new owners refurbished last year, this place has got better and better. It's a beautiful old building with high ceilings and original features making it a unique place to dine. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. You definitely get value in the quality of the food. There a casual outdoor area and a front bar... More

The Royal Hotel has the best accommodation in Mornington. Black and white decor, amasingly comfortable bed, fantastic shower and each room overlooks the ocean, so we watched wonderful sunsets every night. To top our stay off the breakfast basket was truly wonderful, what a great way to start the day. We are gluten free, not only was there gluten free... More

The Royal Hotel has been totally transformed and now has a modern ambiance in a historical shell. From what was a very average or below average pub the Royal now is fine dining and as good as it gets in Mornington. The food quality and presentation was good as you would expect from the chef at Walters Wine Bar and... More

I have been going there for years on and off. Been a while since I was last there and it has completely changed. More a restaurant than a pub. The waiters were excellent, attentive but not intrusive and very helpful. My husband and I ordered the chicken dumpling soup, arancini balls and salmon. The soup was superb, the arancini were...

The atmosphere was lovely, a lot of money spent on refurbishing,however more money could be spent on food supplies! We were served our seafood platter, which looked undersized and when the waiter returned a short time later and took it away again we thought thats it was a mistake as the seafood platter for 2 was not enough for 1...

When four of us visited a few weeks ago (on a very busy Sunday for lunch), we were impressed by the food but got the feeling that the service to our table was particularly good only because we were looked after by an older, more experienced person who we knew from another place. Two of us went back at about... More

Having recently read a newspaper article on the revamped Royal Hotel, my wife and I decided to pay a visit for lunch. We were not disappointed. The venue has always been a favourite because of it's location overlooking the bay at Mornington and the recent refurb has only enhanced the ambience of the place. The menu is quite comprehensive and... More

We held a function at The Royal last night and it was FANTASTIC! The upper section of the bar was set aside for us, the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly, the food was fantastic and everyone had an incredible time!
