Recently stayed at the Royal Hotel for one night. Hotel is situated directly across the road from the train station. Car Parking is about 500mtrs behind the hotel next to Police Station, above and below ground, it is pay and display, machines do accept credit and debit cards, approx £12 for 24hours the hours overnight are non chargeable and therefore credited to the next day. Easy walking distance to shopping areas and all tourist attractions.
Room 209 - Cosy in size, as I was single occupant it was OK but two people would have trouble moving around. Room was clean and bed comfortable, however the room could do with modernising, new kettle, Nespresso coffee machine, simple things such as updating the hotel directory and this room favoured Blankets instead of quilt not to my taste. The iron you need to get from reception. The bathroom has a shower only. This room is right on the intersection and was not satisfactorily insulated to block out the noise from outside traffic or late night revellers returning from train station. There appears to be secondary double glazed window however this has been blocked from closing all the way down, hence does not block out the noise, so not a pleasant nights sleep was had, and at a price of £89pnight I found this to be not acceptable.
Positive - The Restaurant - Food both for Breakfast and Dinner was excellent as was the service and reasonably priced. Beware though, for those with big appetites the rolled Plaice (main course) was very small, starter size portion the accompanying side dish of new potatoes was larger in portion size.
Staff, as per other reviews friendly and efficient, however I was disappointed, when having given feedback on the noise I was told next time ask for a room at the back of the Hotel, shouldn’t all rooms be assured to give a peaceful nights sleep isn’t this the point of a hotel?
I do hope management fix the soundproofing for all rooms affected but in the meantime it may pay to ask for a Room at the Back and maybe a much reduced rate be offered for those noisy rooms!!
