What a special treat - excellent service, complimentary champagne for our 20th wedding anniversary, warm, quiet, central and beautifully appointed. We found the room our reception was held in and relived happy memories. A truly special stay.

My partner and I have stayed at the Royal at least a dozen times - not because it is a good hotel, but a convenient one for our purpose.

Sadly booking cancelled, replacement room very hot, 2 hour power loss,no TV or WiFi.also had to depart prior to breakfast service,sadly no reduction of B &B rate. Also car park a nightmare as other guests block exit by parking in access areas.

We booked three double rooms at a great rate and received good value for money. The rooms were all clean, well prepared and good for our needs. The location of the hotel was great for access to the city centre but not affected by city centre noise. I would recommend this place as a better alternative than the budget chain... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a lovely room and really comfortable. The food in the restaurant was and breakfast as well. It is in an excellent location to walk into the city. The only slight drawback is the parking situation and is a bit of a lottery if you can get into the car park.
