33 members of our walking group stayed at the Royal Hotel from 29 April to 3 May and had a very good stay. The location was perfect for us. Our rooms were on various floors throughout, some of the rooms had just been renovated whilst others were still waiting for the upgrades but on the whole people were very satisfied considering the price we paid for the whole package. Yes, windows could be cleaner but on the higher floors this is a common problem with sea front hotels and not an issue that detracts from our good stay.Reception staff were pleasant and efficient and dealt with any queries promptly. We were located in the top end part of the restaurant and were excellently served by Pavel and Joan who were so enthusiastic and efficient. We thought the choice of meals each day was very good and the food was always served hot. Our thanks went also to Marion the restaurant mangaer for helping us celebrate the 60th birthday of one of our members on the first night. The help given was much appreciated.The use of the public rooms in the evening was a bonus and allowed the group to socialise more than when we have used B&B's in the past and entertainment was available in the form of quizzes, bingo, pool and snooker tables if members required them. Otherwise, you could just sit and chat whilst having a nice drink. All in all we were very satisfied and would have no hesitation in returning to the Royal again.
