Stayed here for seven nights in a twin room. Room was spacious and comfy and could not be faulted in any way. Breakfast was of a high standard each morning with plenty of choice. Ate in restaurant a few times and food was top notch. Staff helped to make stay pleasant.

Just got back from two nights at this hotel with my significant other. We had a lovely stay! All the staff were super friendly and attentive and whilst it I true the reception is not always manned there are always staff at the bar to be found who will help with enquiries. The hotel is in a great location too,... More

Found this place while touring the east coast of Scotland. Standard room facilities, clean and modern. Ok overnight stay in the heart of the centre of town and by the sea. Public bar within hotel. Comfortable room. Vegetarian cooked breakfast a bit small and lacking.

Okay the rooms are nothing to write home about but are clean and fine as a place to lay your head. We were lucky enough to get a room with a seaview which made up for any lack of finesse in the rooms. We got a good deal via booking.com for our one night stay. Breakfast was standard enough but...

We arrived to an empty reception, Waited only a few minutes though. Looked clean but was aware of an unpleasant smell at the entrance as per previous complaints. The male staff member could not have been more helpful. Showed us to our room and carried luggage. The seaview was minimal, better view of a flat roof and next doors kitchen.... More

We wandered around Stonehaven for a bit trying to find the hotel, then discovered they had changed the name and fascade. Now it's called Number 44. There was nobody at the reception desk and after pressing the bell and waiting for awhile to ask directions to The Royal Hotel, was told we were there. Were given a key and told... More

Hotel is quite central, and has some sea view rooms, but for me, that is it. We had a small room, overlooking the beach. When we arrived there was no one in the reception, and we had to wait. There are no lifts, which is not acceptable for a hotel, and seems like the hotel is going through a renovation,... More

Good value for money in central location in stonehaven. Friendly, attentive staff. Pleasant room with nice sea view and enjoyed the free folk festival in the bar. Nice choice for breakfast and smooth check out.

We booked a table and were shown to it promptly and given menus, which were quite extensive and not expensive. Food and drink arrived quickly and was very good quality. Far better than you might expect in a bar / restaurant. Service was excellent from friendly staff. It got a bit noisy when 3 young lads came into the bar... More
