I always enjoy staying at the Royal in Deal. The hotel is centrally located on the beach, with increasingly plenty of nice restaurants nearby. If possible you should try and get a room with some sort of sea view. I have always visited Deal by train, I think if you go by car parking isn't great, but staying at the...

We spent just one night at the Royal, accompanied by our little princess black pug dog. We three had a lovely friendly welcome and were very pleased with our sea view room. The room was exceptionally clean, the bed comfortable and the wet room splendid plus nice bathroom toiletries. Also a lovely heritage style bath in our room; lovely touch,...

Deal is my home town and now live away but in celebrating a significant Birthday it was a pleasure to have lunch at The Royal with my brother and sisters. A hotel with much character and history back to the 18th Century and used by many sea captains awaiting to join their ship off the Goodwin Sands. We were a...

My sister and I had one night stay at the Royal Hotel. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival.

Arrived to a lovely warm welcome. The hotel is bang on the sea front 5 minutes walk from the train station. Parking is right outside if you're driving. The hotel is full of character with parts dating back way back when. Our room was on a slope but it added to the novelty rather than cause any problem. Bar is...

This hotel was booked for us by friends. On arrival we found it to be as near to the sea front as its possible to get, its right on the beach. I believe its one of the oldest & most historic hotels in the area with famous guests over the years from Admiral Lord Nelson to Winston Churchill. Very clean...

The Royal Hotel is virtually on the beach in the centre of Deal. The food and staff were excellent. Smiles are not in short supply here! Free parking is about 10 minutes for slow walkers away, as the carpark by the side of the hotel is metered and regularly visited. Room was huge with a view along the seafront. Very...

We both enjoyed scampi & chips - large portions, piping hot and well-presented. However, the stand-out feature of our lunch was the excellent service. Order was taken very promptly by an extremely pleasant and friendly waitress, and the food arrived in quick time. We had a Shepherd Neame birthday voucher, so had two meals for the price of one. All...

Ate here on Saturday morning with a group of 6 adults and 1 child and had a terrible experience! We sat down and all ordered from the breakfast menu, 3 of the 7 meals ordered arrived promptly with the remaining 4 being totally forgotten about! When questioned for the first time the young girl offered no apology and barely spoke...
