Having read some of the reviews we thought this hotel would be okay for our short stay in Bray for a friend's wedding. Suffice to say if I ever have to go to Bray again I will not return to the Royal.
Firstly, the décor is out of date and the lift scared the life out of me. There isn't any air conditioning, no hairdryer in the room and a very basic shower. Believe me a Premier Inn is nicer! The service was lousy overall as we requested an iron and ironing board late at night, but didn't receive it until after 9am (not first thing as promised when they couldn't find one the night before).
If you wanted a clean cup for your coffee in the morning at breakfast you had to check. The breakfast was supposed to be continental...no sign of cold meats or pastries as expected (that is not a continental breakfast so don't fob people off!) Service at breakfast was like a snail - you had to grab the staff's attention.
