My boyfriend and i booked a double room with a sea view, paid a deposit over the phone as we were told it was booked. When we arrived on Saturday, we were taken up to a room with 2 single beds instead of a double. We did have a sea view but the window was nailed shut and as it was 21° we needed an open window.
We were then moved to another room with a double bed but the view was horrendous. Just rooftops. I ran the taps in the bathroom and they rattled and made a loud screetching noise which vibrated through the floor to the bed.
After being asked to move for a 2nd time to a 3rd room we were extremely annoyed and tempted to try a different hotel. Luckily the 3rd room had perfectly working plumbing, windows and a double bed.
The walls are paper thin, the corridor makes a lot of noise when walked through and i didn't find the staff to be overly friendly. The breakfast was good however, and the woman in the breakfast room on Sunday morning was very polite, friendly & helpful.
We definetly want to go visit Stonehaven again but we will not be going back to the Royal Hotel.
