Went with Shearings for mid week back, hotel is dated, but a lot of these Victorian hotels are. Room was modern and clean, we had sea view room with balcony, tea and coffee provided in room. Food was adequate, not al la carte, but three choices for starters, mains, and desert, and was really good for the money we paid,...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, which is very much appreciated by all who work here and will be extremely beneficial in making improvements where necessary.

I stayed at The Royal Hotel from 3rd to 6th February and was absolutely delighted. I've been to several Bay Hotels and this is the best. It's not tired and dull like some of them. All the staff were excellent and very attentive and polite. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. I ate in the smaller dining area...

Travelled Friday to Monday with Shearings to this hotel and found it very welcoming. We had a lovely big room overlooking the sea. It was warm and comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and the food was good. The hotel is right on the sea so it is easy to get around. The only complaint I have is that...

Just returned from a long weekend with National Holidays, had a lovely stay staff very friendly and food very good for us but our friend is a vegetarian and there was only one choice for the main meal I think there should be a little more selection.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Royal is an impressive building of intricate architecture built in the ‘Free Renaissance’ style and boasting fantastic views over the beach and bay. Only a short stroll to the shops, seaside attractions and the famously beautiful harbour and marina, the location could not be better for exploring all that Weymouth has to offer. Despite its imposing structure, the Royal is enjoyed for its warm and friendly atmosphere. The hotel benefits from a games room and comfortable lounges in which to enjoy the entertainment. During the day you also have the option to relax in the public bar whilst you admire the views overlooking the bay. ... more   less
