We stayed at the Royal Duchy Hotel for three nights during the last week in July.
The hotel is in a perfect location for the views from the terrace across the bay, and an easy walk into town.
The public rooms are beautiful; large, high and comfortable.
The staff were courteous, helpful and friendly at all times.
The breakfast and dinner were excellent in every respect.
We had booked for B & B, but had dinner at the hotel on two of the nights.
On the first night a magician came to each table and did various disappearing type tricks, which was fun to watch. On the second night a 'free' casino was set up in the lounge, also great fun.
My only slightly adverse comment on the stay was that the room we were allocated was not really four star.
It was pleasant enough, but my partner, who is very fussy about such things, found some dust on the light switches and skirting boards, and the windows needed cleaning inside.
The TV was also small.
However, everything worked, and the room was'nt a bad size.
This is nit-picking on what is a marvellous place to stay, and we would definately go back again.
