This was a last minute break for us, I booked the hotel because of its central location and the pool facility, as my husband surfs and I wanted to relax while he was surfing. On arrival the check in was simple, however the pool was not in use! We booked a superior room a dinner bed and breakfast deal for...

So stayed here for my Girlfriends 23rd birthday and asked when I booked the hotel on booking.com if we could have a sea view room. After waiting 1 week no one got back to me. As I arrived at the hotel we was waiting a good 20 minutes to check in as there was only 1 receptionist. As we arrived...

We stayed for three nights ,on a National Express holiday, and while the public rooms were lovely, but dated, our bedroom had no drawers, or bedside cabinets, and cheap plastic furniture with one single wardrobe. The food was good, but the service on the final evening went awry, and we waited 45 minutes for courses. The staff were generally pleasant,...

We had a great overnight stay at the Royal. We used a Groupon voucher for the stay, breakfast and dinner with a bottle of wine. The food was delicious and the staff were all polite and professional. Our room was fine and clean and the bathroom was too. The hotel itself does need some work and repairs in certain areas...

So much could have been better! I went with my partner and it was his birthday present trip. I could tell he was a little disappointed with the hotel. To start with, the girl at the reception forgot to give the the key to my room - I almost went up three flights of stairs only to realize I hadn't...

Checked in, for sure once it was a nice place but that was many, many years ago. Walked in the room, I am sure modern prison cells are more inviting. Walked straight out and went to reception who simply refunded the money without asking why or even what was wrong with the room. Obviously a regular accordance. Really not worth...

My wife and I stayed here for one night, friday 10 March. Our room was classed as a superior double with a sea view, it had the sea view but was definitely not superior, there were stains and iron burns on the carpet, the wallpaper was stained and peeling from the walls in places, the bathroom was very bad and...

Nothing Royal about this Hotel, yes we are on a Groupon so got it a bit cheaper but its dirty (tea splashes up the wall and skirting), mis-matching furniture (3 different types in one box room), damp patches on the ceiling, botched DIY and no room to move around. So pleased I didn't book the evening meal as I don't...
