I remember seeing this hotel on a previous visit to Dartmouth many years ago and have always wanted to experience a stay here. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome and shown to our room even though it was earlier than the official check-in time. The valet parking is ideal as the hotel is so central to local amenities that there is no need to drive. Our room (10) was at the rear of the hotel, but overlooking the central atrium, and was furnished with a large four-poster bed and period furniture with a large modern bathroom. The celebration carvery on Sunday evening was excellent in the Grill Room overlooking the harbour, as was breakfast the following morning. My birthday cards were obviously noted by the staff as upon our return later that day there was another card and a gift from the hotel - a very nice touch and much appreciated. The two well-stocked bars were always well patronised by local people as well as residents which gave them a friendly atmosphere. We ate another superb meal from the a la carte menu in the Grill Room the following evening which easily lived up to our expectations. Although perhaps a little more expensive than you might expect for a 3-star hotel, the Royal Castle more than makes up for it with levels of service and attention to detail that are truly outstanding. I've been trying to think when I've stayed at a better hotel anywhere in the world, but haven't come up with anything yet! We congratulate Nigel Way and his excellent team of helpful, friendly & professional staff for making our stay such a memorable one.
