I visited this hotel in June and although back when i was kid Royal hotels were just that royal and swanky only meant for people of the highest class. This hotel was cheap and it kept to what i would expect a 'Royal' hotel would be. I only stayed for one night but the service on entry was great you walk in and walk up some stairs or take the elevator up to the reception where you are met by what i have to say is some pleasant staff. On entry to my room it was impeccable and met my expectations, except the windows were a bit grubby. On trying the electrical appliances all except the lights and telephone were working. Turns out they forgot to turn the electric on in our room, but the service we received to help resolve this matter was very good. The room was also particularly stuffy and no matter how high the air con was put there was no real difference but this did not affect my sleep. The room was overall though very good. Your room was serviced in the morning whilst you were at breakfast which is served in The Captain Scott room, which to me was what you would expect from a 'Royal' hotel. The breakfast and staff were all very lovely.
Overall it was a very pleasant stay. I would defiantly stay again.
