Stayed with my wife for 2 nights over the August bank holiday. A very tired looking hotel with what at best might be considered adequate furnishings. Thankfully this was only a bed for the night but our room was pokey with cracked bathroom tiles and burn marks on the heater. I asked for a different room but fully booked for... More

The Royal Hotel . . . sounds great, doesn’t it??! The pictures on the website look good, the write-up sounds professional and caring and the position of the hotel right across the sandy beach couldn’t be better! Clearly a non-brainer, right?! Well, not entirely! The advertised ‘Free Parking’ is for 4 cars only (and that if nobody outside the hotel... More

Stayed here because of a party nearby. Around 6 parking spaces shared with a bar and 5 times as many rooms give you a clue as to why you will end up having to park your car on a meter on some residential street round the corner and get up before 9:00am to put more money in - great! Wifi... More

Excellent staff and a high standard all round; comfortable and clean rooms and an decent breakfast buffet service Parking may be a wee bit limited on the hotel's forecourt but there's on-street parking around the hotel.

After an absolutely horrendous experience at the Marlborough (a few doors down from the Royal) I decided to pop in, I started talking to Julie (such a kind woman!) and explained my situation and all the staff were so lovely and kind and I managed to arrange a booking for that night for the rest of the weekend. I am... More

Disappointing that Trip advisor gave this dump 4 and a half stars which is why we booked. Whoever rated this has obviously never stayed here, could have been bribed or the owner got a lot of mates to write glowing reviews about an absolute dump. When we arrived they only had us booked for 1 night not 4. We should... More

Wifi was none existent in our room... More

Booked for a 2 night wedding anniversary break and was not disappointed. The receptionist was warm and welcoming and escorted us to our room ....the room was lovely... spotlessly clean and fresh (the housekeeping team had just vacated ... again friendly and welcoming) and the room was actually more like a suite with seperate seating area overlooking the amazing beach...

Had a wonderful stay at the Royal. We were greeted by a lovely receptionist and shown to our spacious room (so sorry I can't remember her name). The hotel was well kept and very clean, it was obviously well run and all of the staff we saw were helpful. The hotel is right on the sea front and has restaurants... More
