I've been staying at Real since back in the 80s. Since then the town has changed a bit, going more upscale. Gone are half the souvenir shops, and instead they got 2 new museum buildings, china shops and restrictive traffic/parking rules. Real used to be a Relais & Châteaux restaurant, but apparently not any longer. The kitchen used to be run by one of the 2 founding brothers, but currently being run by his son I believe.
Been there a few seasons ago, and I hope it is still as good. They have both an indoor formal restaurant, and outdoor terrace. When I was there in the summer, they were serving dinner only on the terrace. Even on the terrace they had a large tasting menu, that was very good, and hard to finish it all. Buffet breakfast is being served in the formal indoor restaurant. It has a few choices, mostly cheeses, but very nice an quiet. They have an extensive wine cellar/wine list, and wine celllar visits may be arrangeable these days, though never been on one.
The hotel best feature is its central location (free parking). Reception closes overnight, but seems to be open quite late. The family occupies the few rooms above the restaurant, and the floor above that has the few rentable rooms. Rooms are generally small. The old rooms are in the front, facing the street with a nice view, but have the sink in the room, out of the bathroom. The new rooms are in the back, no windows, but have full service bathroom. The hotel sellable attributes are its dead central location, being able to dine/drink at the luxury restaurant and take the elevator to the room once finished. Last time I tried to book a room in March for a July stay the hotel was sold out already. Needed to get a room at one of the adjacent hotels, and use it as a base for dining and wining at Real.
