Found the Royal Hotel by chance and booked a room for 1 night. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Our room was upstairs (no elevator) with old original French doors out onto the balcony overlooking the sea. The bed was extremely comfortable with lovely linen and bedding. We slept well, even though the doors are not exactly noise or windproof!... More

Second visit for dinner and the food was delicious both times. Very friendly staff. Have not been here in a long time due to bad experiences in the past but it seems that now they have worked it out. The chef is fantastic and we will visit again. We enjoyed the mussels which we locally sourced and the seafood pasta.... More

Since we were last there the tavern now has a old 'drawing room' theme, low lighting, and very inviting. The new menu for both the tavern and the restaurant was well thought through for both vegetarians and gluten free diners. Two nights accommodation, good firm beds, very clean and just lovely to open the curtains and look out across the... More

My partner and I had an AWFUL experience at this hotel. After booking a very expensive room for 2 nights at this hotel ($300 per night), we both developed rashes on our backs after being in the bed for less then 20 minutes. When we approached the hotel and asked for a refund, they only refunded us one night and... More

We are a middle aged professional couple who regularly have dinner at The Royal after a long hard week at work. We genuinely love this place because it looks, feels and acts warm, cosy and yummy. The carpeted floors keep the noise down and enable privacy so that although the place is usually busy and there is a humming friendly... More

Will not return. Everyone that I had spoken to said not to visit as staff are quite rude and the meals were average but thought I would give it a shot. Found the food to be extremely overpriced for what it was. Service was okay, location beautiful however even though I sat in the eye of the kitchen. Head chef... More

Four of us had lunch on Easter Sunday & although it was very busy our service was prompt & friendly and the food was delicious. It is not cheap pub food by any means, although it appeared to have a cheaper option for eating in another room and outside. The view is fabulous too.

We had a beautiful stay after our wedding. The room had charm and the continental breakfast was fantastic while sitting on the balcony overlooking the bay...have already recommended to family and friends.

Our group of 8 people came here for dinner on Wednesday evening 10 February 2016.. Dining area was about half full - not a busy night. Table service was very poor. Very long wait to order our drinks & meals. As an entree, my wife & I ordered the duck & pistachio terrine on sourdough toast. The terrine eventually came... More
