This is a beautiful hotel. Yes it needs money spent on it. The room we stayed in was clean and neat. The staff were lovely helpful and we had a giggle with a few of them. Looking at the negative reviews I can see why they are writing some of it but when customers treat the staff as hired help... More

Not too bad poor service , breakfast needs to be avoided unless you on rashons or don't know good quality!! As I say very poor quality food. Rooms are tired and over priced. Great location and a grand hotel in its time so quite interesting to see

We stayed here for a long weekend, on arrival was surprised to have to pay the bill up front, but apparently it is policy. Our room was a sea facing as requested, large room with comfortable beds, bed linen clean, couple of places in room that needed more thorough cleaning but overall satisfactory. We had booked dinner for both nights... More

Prior to travelling to the hotel I called up to confirm the recommended carpark (the hotel does not have its own) and to ask what time check-in was and was told it was 15:00. As we planned to arrive in the morning and the carpark was 5 minutes from the hotel I enquired if there was a secure area where... More

Well it's safe to say I will not be returning here. I wouldn't advertise that they have a pool. It's too small to swim in... and I had to pay an extra £3.50 for the pleasure... plus additional £2 for towels! The pool area was covered in 'No Jumping' signs which all guests ignored. It was one of the worst... More

Unable to park car at hotel but you get 50per cent discount at ncp. Booked in 3pm room not what is on website but comfortable. I noticed outside our window were the extractor fans for the kitchen so asked at reception what time they would turn off as very noisy. I was told 10-10.30 at 11.30 I spoke to reception... More

We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and have always enjoyed our stay. We were aware that it had been taken over by the Britannia group but did not realise just how much it would have deteriorated under their management. We paid extra for a double sea view room, and although our room (314) had two windows, our... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay, and from the reviews was expecting Baghdad. As a family very happy with the hotel ; yes the hotel is very tired in places but there are clear signs of general ongoing maintenance. Perhaps we expect less than some habitual moaners; under staffed but cope adequately. On the whole room clean but not... More

We visited the Royal for one night as a last minute family get away and paid £127 for a family room with a sea view, The Royal is a large hotel part of the Brittania Group, hence full of coach parties, and families. It has been very beautiful in its hey day but now would describe it as faded at... More

After reading many negative reviews of this hotel we were full of trepidation. Nevertheless, we found reception to be very helpful and pleasantly welcoming. We had a double seaview room and a single room, all on the 3rd floor. Having mastered the room numbering system - not quite logical but challenging we found our rooms. Entering the double room we...
