Stayed at the royal 2 nights may 17/18th, wasn't,t really sure what to expect as the reviews were so much like marmite,love it or hate it! We arrived no probs, I had put a request in for some of the refurbished rooms as we had booked 4 rooms, but sadly we didn,t get them,so I was worried when we went to our family room,expect the worst and anything. Better is a bonus,we were really surprised, it was a little Art Deco,massive bed for us and a seperate little bedroom for the 2 boys, it was clean, and really roomy,had a sofa and 2 bucket chairs in as well! The hotel is the hotel itself was a little tired but the character of the hotel just totally makes your jaw drop, it was like stepping back a couple of hundred years,I loved it, Britannia haven,t started a major refurb yet(so we were told by a staff member) so when they do I hope it is sympathetic to the building, cos its wonderful,we found the prince regent room upstairs and fell for it straight away and it's roof top veranda, the staff were all friendly and helpful especially Scottish Keith in the dining room,who nothing was too much trouble,and witty with it! The food was really tasty,and well presented, the only downfall was that the bar was a little expensive,another treat was as we were checking out we asked if any of the large suites were empty if we could take a look at them, and to our delight we were given a tour of 3 suites an they were absolutley fantastic, loved the one that winston Churchill stayed in,and the gentleman that escorted us also gave us a bit of history on the royal!,so thank you royal hotel! So if ever you fancy a reasonable priced break do try the royal,book half board cos the food is really good!
