Large apartment style rooms and the hotel is conveniently located at Gateway for all local activities. Parking a bit of hassle as car park located at back of property and shared with offices, so can be confusing to find where to park. Staff efficient.

This is an amazing hotel. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Service was excellent. The room was better than expected (really big) I'd definitely stay here again in the future. It's a lovely environment to be in.

Rooms are great and spacious, housekeeping services need a lot of attention, waited so long for simple items and rooms were never cleaned properly, items like water bottles was not replaced from the second night, tea and coffee wasn't replaced as well, staff need to be trained more especially in the restaurant, the waiter had no idea what was happening,...

I had booked the loft-type room, and was very impressed with the shear cleanliness and tidiness of the large area. The rooms could only be accessed with a key-card from the elevator, which put me at ease security wise. The room had three floors, the middle floor was the kitchen and living area which led to the balcony with an...

My overall impression of Royal the hotel is positive. Staff from Reception to the Cleaners are very friendly, approachable. No request is too much for them. That is a very big plus on the part of the hotel. I didn't quite appreciate the level of noise throughout the night from the cars along the road. I found that very disturbing....
