“Great Location”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Stayed for one night in this really nice hotel. Friendly staff, fabulous breakfast served by attentive waiters. There's a private car park for the hotel across the road. We stayed in room 116 overlooking the river, clean, spacious room and large comfy bed. No complaints at all and would recommend.

On arrival we were made very welcome, booking in was simple and access to the car park directions given. car park very close by. Our room was in keeping with the regency style of the overall hotel, Staff were friendly with a gentle quietness that allows for that home from home feeling to be absorbed in the peaceful settings overlooking the river Dee. We were asked if we needed any assistance with bags or familiarity to the area. We arrived as quests and left as friends, a very happy stay we would definitely recommend a visit. Close to local attractions and public nature park.
The dinning area is beautiful clean spacious and regency in style, breakfast is excellent and I would recommend the full English, items like eggs done to order. This Hotel would be great as a stop off during travelling or as a longer holiday stay. Thank you to Ramez and his staff.

Room Tip: Room 109 overlooks the river, it is warm and comfortable with a sunny outlook over the village, larg...

Positives. Central location, Good Breakfast, Fairly tidy rooms. good for short stay - 2-3 days.
However for longer I would be looking for something more.
Negatives, Hotel is under-invested in terms of staff and Décoration, indeed it was a job to find staff on occasions,and does need a makeover in certain areas there was a run down feel about the hotel which is not illustrated in the images available.

Not a fault of the hotel - but that bloody town clock!

I staid here overnight in June, and left feeling quite mixed. The place is clean enough, and has a nice view of the river.

The main problem is that the place feels old. It seems like something that hasn't had a new carpet or any work done since the 70s!

The breakfast was mediocre at best, but sufficient.

What I will say though is that the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, so I thank them for that.

I wouldn't want to stay for more than a night or two though.

This hotel is good for short stays. It has some positives, and negatives.

Positives

Bed was comfortable

View of River Dee was Spectacular

Location is central


Negatives or Improvements

The Room Keys, shouldn't be keys. It would be better if keycards were used.

One of the windows in my room didn't shut all the way, to me it wasn't a big issue but to those who have sleeping problems it might be

Amount of steps. Its not for those who are physically disabled/handicapped.

Other Comments

When I first walked into the wing of the hotel where my room was I felt like I was walking into a scene from the Shining. It gives off that sort of feeling.

Water Pressure in the shower wasn't wonderful

Ask for a room on the River Side (its quieter)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view not a street side room

Oh how this could be special, but it's not now. On arrival there was confusion about our booking. We couldn't have breakfast when we wanted as the American coach party had been given priority over other guests, we had to wait outside the dining room. The breakfast team were understaffed and the breakfast was poor. The room was adequate given the price point, no porter, no lift, dragged up luggage to second floor. Lovely views of the river. Oh what might have been.

Everything that needs to be said has been said; stunning location, no lift, sloping floors, threadbare carpets. Poor old hotel. Our room however was the best we stayed in on our 10 day tour (some at twice the price) with two windows looking out over the river which crashed and thundered by and a refurbished bathroom (do like a bath). Service varied from slow to non existent but we were in no hurry. Pity that the garden below the decking has been allowed to run wild. Breakfast was okay, cooked to order, though my bacon was a bit crisp round the edges. Time to go and there was no one in reception; we had to go back to the dining room to get help. We'd stay at the Royal again if we could be sure of a room overlooking the river.
