Stayed 3 nights in this wonderful hotel and had a great time. All the staff that we came into contact with were friendly helpful and very efficient. The room was huge, very nicely furnished, light and spotlessly clean. A special mention goes to the room attendants who did a fantastic job each day. The food and drink is excellent value...

Really lovely staff, excellent service, incredible food - no scrimping on portions. Had a lovely stay, comfortable place that has a real high quality feel. Lovely surroundings, though we didn't have good weather so stayed in, happy just to enjoy the inn and its comforts, the bar and the open fire. Will definately visit again

Stayed at the Royal Hotel, for one night only..What a lovely place, the standard double bedroom was huge, with a 6 foot bed, the food was so reasonable and really delicious, with so much choice. The bar prices were cheaper than my local pub...fantastic. The best thing of all was the staff, from the bar to the receptionists, and waiters,...

This is a lovely hotel with all the charm of an old English inn. Our room was a little tricky to find with lots of corridors and stairs to negotiate but was worth the treck as it had great views of the river and was very comfortable. The restaurant setting was charming and food delicious. Staff were very friendly and...

Dear Marilyn, Thank you for feedback - The Royal is a grand old lady but it can sometimes feel a bit of a maze as you explore her corridors! Great to hear your visit was so enjoyable, hope to see you again soon Rob, Lead Receptionist

Closes at 11:00, what is the point? Although great views, the room on their website promises oldie world chic - but you end up in the modern wing (well it was in the 70s). Better places to stay in the town centre and are actual hotels rather than a glorified pub with rooms.

Dear Guest Usually I would start my response by thanking my guest for their review but I am unable to do this on this occasion. We are an old English Inn which has 42 bedrooms, two function rooms, a majestical dining room and a great bar area with roaring fire. Thankfully 99% of our visiting guests and our loyal local...
