We had a night in the Royal Anne. I saw the reviews on here and thought that it can't be all that bad. I was personally impressed that the Manager of the hotel rebutted the somewhat negative comments. So we thought,"its only 1 night, lets try it".
The night in the hotel was fine..They gave us a room on the upper floor with a partial view of the lake. Upon check in, the service could not have been any better. Very friendly, professional and welcoming. The hotel its self is showing its age in the lobby, but that was not a big deal for us. The room was clean and fresh, but the bathroom was refreshed with a beige colour paint. At first glance it looked fine, but deeper look you realise that they tried to refresh the bathroom in a somewhat cheap way. But again, how much time do you spend in the bathroom.
Breakfast was not very good. Albeit a contintental breakfast, I have had much better. if you can get a rate without breakfast included, try for that. if not, I would not count on a healthy breakfast before you start your day at the hotel. They had hardboiled eggs, pastry, bread for toast, coffee, tea, some fruit and not so tasty juices.
Suggestion to the hotel would be to remove the breakfast if that is all that is on offer and lower the price a little more. When I hear continental breakfast, I do not expect bacon, eggs, pancakes...but would like to see some nice yogourts, breads (brown or white), nice juice would be good too.
Given the price we paid (managers special), the location and ease of getting there, it was a good solid little hotel for our needs for 1 night. Its clean, close to restaurants and the lake. But it was still an average hotel. I did not see enough things that I would call the hotel above average or excellent..
