An excellent value Sunday lunch despite turning up without a reservation, Service was excellent. Friendly staff. Food was good. Menu was varied. Prices were very reasonable at £50 for three including drinks. We struggle to find good places to eat in the north of Liverpool (well Sefton). Happy with our choice this time. Car park and on-street space if full. Will return.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled with friends

Hi
Thank you for your review. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we continue to upgrade our facilities and rooms constantly. In fact, at the moment, we are refitting room 10's bathroom and when we do things such as that, it is a complete rip out and new everything all round. It is the only way to keep a 200 year old hotel in with the 21st Century. I hope you chose the Royal Hotel on your next visit to the area
Kind Regards
Gordon

Held 80th Birthday meal function for 40 persons. Staff excellent, nothing too much trouble, Food well cooked, and all served hot to a great standard. The function was enjoyed by everyone who remarked about the helpful staff on duty in making the function enjoyable. I would certainly recommend this venue to other parties. I would like to congratulate the staff on their hospitality skills and hard work.

Stayed here for one night whilst on a weekend visit to Liverpool. It's ideal for a short stay. Room was very clean and comfortable, all staff extremely friendly. Breakfast was freshly cooked and a wide choice. Its only 5 minutes walk from Waterloo station where you can get a train into the city centre -only takes 10-15 mins and was £3.50 for a day return. I would definitely stay here again.

We were attending a Christmas gathering in Crosby so booked to stay at The Royal £90 for B&B. The hotel is clearly a popular venue. When we arrived the restaurant was busy serving Christmas parties and when we returned from our meal the merry-makers had transferred to the bar.

The Royal is a first rate small hotel. The reception staff were friendly and helpful - we were allocated a spotlessly clean room on the third floor. Overall the hotel's décor may be a little dated, but our room had a large flat screen TV and a modern bathroom.

Breakfast was very good and cooked to order.

If Crosby beach is where you want to be - then The Royal will not disappoint.

Hi
Thank you for your review. Our restaurant is extremely popular over the festive period and in 2013 we decided to stop having the Disco/Entertainment christmas parties we have held on previous years. A right move which means our residents can enjoy a more peaceful stay over weekends in December. Being a small independent hotel, we are always refurbishing rooms and updating them in a classic style that is befitting of the old lady of waterloo, The Royal Hotel which is 200 years old next year.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to be of service when you visit Liverpool again

On Saturday 16th Nov 2013 we held our wedding at the Royal. It was the most stress free wedding from start to finish. Firstly Steve Moore who organised the whole wedding, as we work away this was so helpful, and what a fantastic job he did,from the champagne reception,to the wedding table looking so beautiful with amazing flower arrangements and candles, it felt so romantic .THANK YOU so much Steve. The wedding breakfast meal was delicious superbly cooked by Gavin and his wonderful kitchen staff and expertly served by Jamie and Steve. We spent the whole day and evening at the hotel and had the most brilliant time, it was relaxing and fun and we felt very special as did our family members. Thank you also to Steve, Becky and Lisa on reception, Connor, Jake and Alex behind the bar who did a brill job, and all the Managers and staff, including the lovely ladies who keep the hotel and rooms absolutely spotless, you all make our visits to the hotel memorable. Would not stay anywhere else on our frequent visits to Liverpool and if anyone is looking for a perfect wedding venue look no further. THANK YOU ALL AGAIN FOR OUR SPECIAL DAY, see you in a couple of weeks.xxxx FABULOUS

A good hotel which is very handy for the train into Liverpool. Very friendly and helpful staff and the restaurant was very good. Our room was recently refurbished and comfortable with a good view of the Mersey Estuary.

Hi
Thank you for your review. Our location is often mentioned in trip advisor. Whilst we are not in the city centre, we do have excellent transport links for trains, buses and cars and we are only 15 minutes to the city centre, 5 minutes to the container docks and 15 minutes to the football stadia. Many guests enjoy our beach location for the peace and good night's sleep which in some city centre hotels, is hard to find
We hope to welcome you again to the Royal Hotel
