Thinking back, the Royal Hotel's beds are pretty much the most comfortable I've ever slept in. And it's strange, because there were two separate twin beds, with only what looked like a futon mattress and a duvet. But oh, it was so nice!
We stayed here over the winter holidays, so things around the harbour were low key, indeed. I imagine things are more bustling when the summer months are underway, but as it was, there are some nice little shops and restaurants in the area. I just don't know how jam-packed it might be during cruise ship season. The location of the hotel, for those walking from the train station, is quite a haul. I'd rec taking a cab if you're a family or not up for a little exercise. Good new is the airport goes stops at the hotel, so air transfer is a snap.
Hotel is clean and modern. Loved the shoe polishers in the hallways = nice touch in the messy winter months. That breakfast buffet is divine, in staging, selection, and taste. I never thought my boyfriend would be so amenable to be eating cold herring in the morning, but he looked forward to the buffet just as much as I did. Tons of great breads to choose from, as well as a yoghurt bar, cheeses, the fish bar, cereals, and the typical hot food steamers (with an ENG slant).
I would definitely stay here again and miss the best the comfy beds and tasty buffet have to offer.
