Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a lovely time on holiday late last year on a 4 night coach holiday. My mobility is not good so I took a class 1 mobility scooter, and was a bit worried about leaving it outside/where to charge the battery, as scooters are not allowed in the lift. I need not have worried. There is a small hallway just in the main entrance with 2 power points for charging scooters, but best to ask first if you are taking one. All of the staff were lovely and answered any questions I had. The food, well it wasn't the best but I was very impressed with the self service breakfast buffet. On the last night we all treated ourselves to an evening meal at their restaurant, and that meal was outstanding and for the sake on an extra £22 was well worth the money. I paid a very small single supplement and expected a tiny room overlooking the car park, but I was given a large double room over looking the sea, beautiful. The furniture and carpets were a little worn in many area's of the hotel, but I am sure that they will be refreshed shortly. Overall a very nice stay and I will be back in the future. If you wanted to hire a mobility scooter for the day the hotel will give you a local number.

We booked in for one night (Saturday) for a family birthday party. The hotel desperately needs cleaning, horrendous cobwebs and wall paper hanging off the walls in the dining room. Rooms were not clean with signs of mould/disrepair. However, that is nothing compared to the rudeness of the receptionist. We witnessed a couple politely complaining about severe issues, she was very rude indeed. We didn't dare go to talk to her about the lack of hot water in our room! This place desperately needs a complete refurb,

We were booked in for 2 nights for a family event. In our first room the TV blew up. took out the electricity and we needed to change rooms. These things happen and the night watch man was amazing, he is a credit to the hotel. Then we went to make a drink and noticed the colour of the water from the kettle, it was disgusting. I went to complain and the receptionist said the manager would come and find me that afternoon - he didn't. When I checked out and asked the same receptionist why the manager didn't come and talk to us she claimed it was my fault! She was rude, she was offensive, she lied and several guests overheard this. The thing is the hotel is very tired and it needs a lot of refurb but the food really is excellent and if you exclude the Rottweiler on reception the rest of the staff really try hard. The location is beautiful, lots of parking, great lounge and you can see in Victoria time this place was a real gem. The food is absolutely exceptional.

Clean room, sheets were nice Shower was small and hot water plentiful. If anything the room was slightly hot for us. But we opened the windows. Hotel staff were so helpful and friendly. Especially Jon and Gavin. Plus Louise in Dining room. New Years Eve was amazing Johnny Lodge had everyone dancing. He is an asset to the hotel. Food was really good especially New Years Eve they pulled all the stops out. One elderly man guest was being an absolute idiot before the evening started and he was swapping all the table names around for the entertainment. But Jon soon put a stop to his antics. Overall we had a lovely time. And the rain stopped so we could go out for a walk. We would like to return.

A beautiful building, was probably one of the best in the street back in the day, but now feeling a little tired and needing a bit of TLC. It was very clean. The house keeping was exceptional. Warm, welcoming, friendly and comfortable rooms. The beds were so soft, it was easy to relax and get a good night's sleep. The reason for my 4* review was the en-suite bathroom. It was so small, cold and the hot water took an age to come through, by that time the shower tray had filled with water because the drain was obviously blocked. (I did tell reception before leaving) Buffet breakfast was all very nice, plenty of selection, waiting staff very friendly and helpful. All in all a very good stay. I would definitely recommend anyone stay here and I will return in the future.

Just back from a weekend stay at the Royal watching the Elvis tribute on the Friday night followed by The McCoys on Saturday night. I must say the six of us really enjoyed our stay. Yes the rooms could do with a bit of tlc. ie redecorating but the food was nice you can't complain about that most of the staff are very friendly and helpful. And we are definitely going back when there are acts on we like.
