The Royal Norfolk Hotel
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in Bognor Regis
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We booked for one night, asked for a sea view and got a car park but hey someone needs to have this view! Check in was efficient and room relatively clean and presentable. Window had three settings for the opening dependant on which way up the block of wood was, I assume this was a temporary repair!, bed was lumpy and the room cold with seemingly no way to alter the rads. Breakfast okay. My recommendation sort out the rooms and give all your customers the same attention as your coach parties present throughout our stay.

Stayed: September 2012, traveled as a couple

The location is excellent. The staff are very efficient and professional. However, the excellent breakfast was spoiled by a large coach party. Which seems to be a regular feature of this otherwise great hotel.

A fantastic Alfa coach holiday.We had a relaxing time with friends. Lovely sea view rooms which were clean and furnished to a comfortable standard. Shower and bathroom were very clean. The food was great with lots of choice and you could get any combinations of meals with extras if required. The menus were available for all week which helped to organise your meals. All public areas were always tidy and clean. Although we did not make use of the entertainment the function room was always full and we had good feedback from fellow travellers. We were able to have drinks outside or in the lounge. The Pimms were delicious! All staff were extremely helpful and cheerful, nothing was a problem. Our waitress (Rosie) was exceptionally diligent to her duties and knew our personal preferances after a couple of days! When we arrived there was a fayre on the hotel green so our entrance to the hotel was accompanied by a band playing the "Dam Busters" which we found welcoming. Thankfully the band stopped at 5 pm! A very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Pay extra for sea view- well worth it !

Reasonably priced well appointed and friendly hotel in Bognor Regis, right on the front and overlooking the beach. Rooms spacious and clean. Probably very grand once and although not having the newest fixtures and fittings, there's very little impression of 'tiredness', unlike a lot of similar hotels. The breakfast was excellent. Free car parking

Room Tip: A sea view will cost another tenner.

Had a week at this hotel for the 4th time & I must say in my opinion it is the best in the leisureplex hotels we have stayed at, Nicely situated just across the road from the beach. The staff are friendly & in our experience will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. We payed a bit extra for a sea-view room which was well worth it. The room was clean & nicely decorated & in the dining hall our waitress Rosie was fast & friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Loved it . Room was very clean, staff were very nice, good breakfast, lovely views, had a very relaxed stay here. Nice to have clean cups in the room, just a shame the weather was not playing fair. Entertainment on the night was good. We slept very well.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view
