“Wonderful hotel”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is really fab, the room was out of this world we were in the Wellington, it had a balcony with table and chairs and a heater so we could sit out at night and look out the sea while drinking our drinks. The room had a bath in the room looking out at sea. Also a shower in the bathroom. The staff there are wonderful really helpful James was great thanks to him. The food was great, (dinner and breakfast) we would love to go back there x

We stayed at the Royal Hotel when we were married. We had such fond memories we decided to return again. We were not disappointed and had a lovely time again. The suite was very nicely updated without losing any of the old world charm. The Boat House is also one of our favourite restaurants in Deal.

Good food, lovely room, nice bar. I would stay here again. Views were great too.
We had a traditional roll top bath in the bathroom and a separate shower. Room was warm and the bed was very comfortable.

The Royal is our favourite hotel, a mix of style, location, great service and value for money mean that the beautiful town of Deal has a hotel to be proud of.
All the rooms we have stayed in are beautifully appointed and a very good size. The hotel maintains a family feel and is a focal point for the town.

Room Tip: If you can book early enough the family rooms with the balcony are a must.

I've stayed at the Royal Hotel several times travelling from my home in Chatham. The rooms are very spacious, clean and the restaurant food good value. The bar is unusual being on the shingle beach. Deal is a traditional seaside town and the Three Compasses restaurant just over the road is also an accompanying attraction. The cinque port of Sandwich is close as well, you can even walk there on a nice day along the beach! Deal has great seaside walks to the south as well.

I stayed here in July with my 2 children and my mother. We moved room for the 2nd night of our stay when a sea view room became available. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and all our belongings were moved while we were out for the day. We liked the hotel with its' shabby chic air and its' location on the seafront. We were limited in room choice as we had a family room but both rooms were pleasant although the first, in the attic had a VERY small shower cubicle. The downside was the food, we ate in the restaurant the first night but following a disappointing meal we decided to eat elsewhere on the 2nd. The breakfast we had paid for and so ate both mornings but it was really very poor. The choice was limited and the cooked breakfast was really not very good,quite greasy and obviously very cheap ingredients. I'm really not sure how eggs can be cooked to taste that bad. I did comment on the poor quality of the food when we checked out.

because the room I had was rather nice - it was big and comfortable and the bathroom was also very spacious, with a clawfoot bath and a shower. It did take me a while to work how how the shower tap worked (the secret is turn the handle quickly and wait outside until the water warms up - unless of course you like to have a cold shower first). What let the place down for me was the breakfast. I always have continental and the choices were average. The coffee was luke warm every day - an experience shared by fellow guests as I observed some of them sending theirs back. The crockery and cutlery could have been cleaner. Nonetheless, I would stay there again, now knowing what to expect. The location of the hotel is hard to beat and the Reception staff was lovely and very helpful.
