Having read some of the reviews I was somewhat sceptical about staying at the Royal, however after staying there for two nights I do not have any negative comments. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed with a very nice en-suite, I do agree that the rooms opposite the station were noisy, in the main I think this was due to a lot of passing traffic (taxis) and also late night revellers returning home but I think this is expected in a town centre and of course Bath is a major tourist atraction. It was quite warm on the top floor, however if you kept the windows closed and the secondary double glazing shut there was little noise and the oscillating fan provided kept the room cool.
We did dine in the restaurant and I could not fault the food in any way at all, in fact on our table of 12 people every single person agreed that the food was well presented, served piping hot and was of a very good standard, in fact it was delicious - also very good value at £17.50 for three courses. The restaurant staff were both friendly and efficient and the bar was also comfortable and well kept. The hotel locked the doors at 11 pm and the bar was then for residents only.
We could not find any fault with the breakfast, there was a very good choice and it was all served hot and was of a good standard.
All in all the hotel was very good value and was only a short walk from the town centre, we would have no hesitation in staying there again.
