The Royal on the face of it is a splendid old hotel situated in the centre of a town however the inside does not reflect its glorious location and frontage. The foyer is tired and worn. The gentleman on reception was helpful but not over helpful and had to be prompted to reveal the location of the car park.

The corridors up to the rooms are tired, dated and the carpets are threadbare. I had a room at the front of the hotel. It was decent sized but very dated. The bed was very squashy or used but was clean and did give a suprisingly good nights sleep. Although slightly down at the heal the room was not dirty. The bathroom was old but clean. (though did smell a bit musty)

I did not use the restaraunt or bar.

Breakfast was slightly haphazard. Two members of staff were wandering round but did not seem that effective at serving. One of which was in a very dishevelled uniform and looked more like he should be doing the gardening. Basic things like no milk on the table or clearing tables after they were used were not been done. An older gentleman appeared later and was very diligent and polite and made sure that everyones needs were met.

The reasteraunt is in a stunning room which overlooks the river. The breakfast when it arrived was massive and was worth the wait. It was hot and very filling. The toast was also good not the usual slightly warm and brown stuff you get in some B&B's

On check out the receptionist was very helpful and polite and quite different from the evening receptionist..

This hotel is passed its best and has so much potential. I was on a discounted rate which I found on the internet.. I am not sure I would have been happy to pay the full price.

Perfect location for all attractions in North Wales and right on the river Dee.
The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly.
Good bars and restaraunts within walking distance.
Even free Wi-Fi in our room.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is on the riverside in LLangollen and has its own car parking. Although my room was on the main street, it was not noisy. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The one drawback is there are no facilities for the disabled. There is no lift and there are fairly steep stairs to the bedrooms and another via the bar to the restaurant.

Ideal location in the middle of Llangollen but if you are travelling by car you will be lucky to get a space in the car park which is across the road. Reception was dated and the only way up was using the stairs as far as I could see. Stair carpet needed attention. We were on the second floor with a river view - shame about the view to the right of rotten felt and a pile of wood just let as an eye sore. Room was clean but furniture very dated. Breakfast staff were friendly and food was ok. Value for money - stayed in better places for this price. Would I go back - only if I was desperate for somewhere to stay!.

We have just had a lovely stay at the Royal Hotel.
Our room was spotlessly clean with a modern bathroom and a lovely view of the river.
Breakfast was good and the staff were friendly and helpful.
The new stylish updated Royal is a far cry from the old Royal.
We would definitely stay here again, it is in the heart of the town and on the river, perfect.
