We had a one night stay on our way to using the Euro Tunnel. We booked a family room which on first inspection seemed very nice. However, as soon as you look a bit further you find there are quite a few maintenance issues. Grout failing out in the bathroom, lots of cracked tiles, damaged walls, shabby furniture. Looking out...

My Husband and I stayed in the Wellington Suite for two nights in may and we had a brilliant stay at The Royal. The Suite was a great size, with a huge bed and really nicely decorated. A roll top bath sat in the corner of the room looking over the Deal Pier. The hotel was right on the beach...

Nice hotel and lovely staff. At dinner in the restaurant my wife's steak was fine but my crispy pork was hard, overcooked, old and the crackling was not crispy. Disappointing! However, I will return for a lunch which I think they are good at, but will not return to their main restaurant for dinner.

We were very pleased to be upgraded to a superior room, which was lovely. The view of the sunrise over the pier in the morning was beautiful. We ate in the restaurant in the evening, the food was very good. However, a bit issue for us was that dogs are allowed in the restaurant, which really put me off. Shame...

Parking is easy, and free after 5PM. Excellent sea views and well staffed, although it was a little quiet due to the weather. Starters of Tapas worked well, and enabled us to look unhurriedly at the menu. The standard fish-n-chips is an any place you would visit, where this place excels is in their other items. Presentation, and taste were...

Went on bank holiday weekend for a family lunch in the hotel bar /restaurant. Overall the food was quite bland and my steak came out cold, which had to then be sent back to be reheated. Several people in our group commented on the lack of seasoning which means the Chef is not taking note of his food preparation. Overall...

The room at this hotel was just stunning it made the trip. Breakfast had long waits but the room is so nice i can let that go. Gorgeous views perfect location. But the room made my trip! It was the superior double room, friendly on arrival and makes you feel very relaxed.

The setting of this place is lovely, the main bar/dining area overlooks the sea, however when it's busy you can't be sure to get these seats. Service is excellent, they do their best to satisfy your needs, they pulled out an extensive ingredients list when my parter required something wheat free. The food however was lacking a little. Nothing was...

Whilst the food at the bar in this hotel has always been variable at best, on our last visit it reached a new nadir. We should have been warned by overhearing two complaints before placing our order for lunch. The first was about the complete lack of variety in the so called 'fish' pie and the second was about the...

Booked this last minute for our wedding anniversary as I remembered reading an article about it. Booked a superior room, which was very spacious. Staff very friendly. The only downside was no wifi in our room, but not really an issue for one night, and wifi was available in the lounge and bar areas.
