Stayed overnight at The Royal Norfolk Hotel to see what the Bognor was like, that's a different story however!!
The hotel was generally okay and the staff were very polite and efficient, no issues there.
Our room was a sea view room which naturally had a supplement and due to this additional charge made it poor value for money. The room contained very old fashioned furniture including a four poster bed which was far too big for the room and was also very uncomfortable due to a poor quality mattress. There was also a ridiculously tiny wall mounted LCD TV that you couldn't see properly whilst lying on the bed due to being obscured by one of the posts of the bed!!
The bathroom was okay but suffered with some minor maintenance issues, such as a bath plug not attached to the bath, an unsightly and amateurish repair to the bath where the coating had been damaged and no lock on the bathroom door!! There was also a rather poorly performing bath/shower mixer tap which made a shower an interesting experience as it switched from hot to cold!!!!
We didn't take dinner but breakfast was adequate, only, we felt.
To sum up our stay wasn't spoilt but we felt that this hotel was expensive for what it was.
