I regularly stay at The Royal on business and look forward to visiting everytime. Staff are without exception friendly and cultivate a lovely atmosphere - reception is 24 hours, and welcoming (particularly when arriving in the rainy Northeast in the dead of night). Breakfast buffet is perhaps a little more basic than more expensive hotels - but does the job...

As my brothers and sisters live across the country we never get to see each other all together at Christmas as we all spend time with our own grown up family. We planned a weekend away at the Royal and from the minute we booked it nothing was too much trouble. I rung up and told Julie that we was...

Felt very welcome. After problems with the wifi in my original room, I was moved to a much larger one with a sea view. Bathroom though large, had a very small shower and no storage space, just a small shelf over the sink. Limited parking on a first come firt served basis. Some street parking near by. Reasonable breakfast. Friendly...

Stayed here for 2 nights. We were told they had a function on downstairs but could offer us an Italian buffet in a private area instead. The food was awful and nowhere near enough for our group of 18 people. I've never seen pizza like it! Taking deep pan to a whole new level!! When we complained about it the...

The staff at the Hotel were very welcoming and explained about the restaurant and bar for dinner or snacks, We had dinner on first evening which was very enjoyable , nice atmosphere and quite inexpensive....

My flat was out of bounds for the day so I decided, since I've stayed here before, to enjoy another night at The Royal Hotel. Once again I enjoyed my stay. Enjoyed a couple of drinks in the adjoining bar, had a comfortable stay in the room I was given, bed was comfy, Freeview TV, tea and coffee facilities, complimentary...

In general it was warm, clean and roomy with good breakfast. BUT The mattress is well past its sell by date and is very soft, saggy and creaks every time you move. The noise from the music in the cafe below was very loud so sleeping before 11pm is not possible. The window blinds are all torn at the edges...
