I last visited the Royal Court back in the late 80's but recently chose to stay the night because of a good deal on the room. My first impression as I walked from the car to reception was that it looked some what tired and dated. I found my room pretty much the same - dated and in need of a refresh/update. Initially it smelt musty so I had to open the windows, this did cure it. However the room was clean, servicable and good value for the price paid. I was disapointed that the bathroom had no shower but again was not going to complain for one nights stay. Again the bath room was rather dated but servicable. Unfortunately I could not use the wifi as the signal was too low.
I could not fault the service and the staff I encountered, and the breakfast that I ate the next day. I can't comment on the rest of the food but a chap was having a bar snack next to me and it looked and smelt good. Again the furniture/decor let the bar down as some seats were ripped and looking very tired.
I didn't get chance to use the leisure facilities but the looked reasonable.
I would say that it was overall good value but is being let down by the dated furniture/decor. It appears to not have any money invested in it since the 80's. I would stay again but only for the right price. I would also make sure I had a shower in the bathroom room too.
