“Good for its star rating”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

The White Hart Royal feels like its owners got halfway through refurbishing then paused to save up a bit more money before finishing the job.

For example, the room we stayed in had a modern feature wall, iPod dock, nice curtains and bedding and stylish tiles in the bathroom (brownie points for the White Company toiletries), but the bathroom also had unattractive vinyl flooring and the bedroom was made to look dingy by the ugly, gloomy overhead light.

It has to be said though that this is a three-star hotel and it is more than adequate for that category. Just make sure you ask for a room at the back if traffic noise keeps you awake, as it's on the main road.

The White Hart Royal is is a fab place to stay if you like hotels with history: the plaque by the entrance says that Charles I stayed there, and with stairs so wonky you feel like you're drunk when you ascend them, it shows (but in a quirky, charming way). The only downside is that the water in the shower didn't go beyond tepid - I guess because of the limitations of providing hot water for multiple bedrooms in an old building.

The staff are really friendly and helpful and gave us a lovely warm welcome despite our being there on a KGB deal.

On the whole, the breakfast was pretty nice, but the sausages weren't good - stick with bacon and eggs if you're particular about meat quality! - and unfortunately the croissants were stale.

However, dinner-wise, I cannot recommend the hotel restaurant enough: the food is really wonderful, and while not cheap, we were pleased we ate there. It's like an entirely different team is operating the kitchen in the evening.

If you're in Moreton for more than one night, it's also worth checking out the Thai restaurant round the corner - we had an amazing meal there too!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back if you get annoyed by road noise

I stayed here in January 2012 along with some old school friends for a "girls weekend". The customer service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The bar area and sitting rooms downstairs are great. The bedrooms are a strange mixture of beautiful new furnishings (curtains and a feature wall paper) and old anagylpta magnolia painted wallpaper with old fashioned (think 1970s) wardrobes and draws. The flooring of our toilet area was cold and horrid and made me wish I'd bought slippers! The food is good - not great, but good and the staff really try very hard to make your stay as wonderful as they can. Try the Manor hotel just up the road for the most amazing cocktails!

Room Tip: Get a room at the back! Our friends stayed at the front and it was very noisy both from the road noi...

We stayed for 2 nights in this lovely hotel, full of olde-worlde character and charm. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the breakfasts superb, and the evening meal was excellent. Our very spacious and comfortable room was on the second floor, overlooking the main road, but traffic noise was not a problem at all, due to the double glazing. I personally found the pillows a little too soft, but that was really a very minor issue. Definitely recommended!

Spent a long weekend here as a birthday treat and it couldn't have been bettered. From the moment we arrived to the time we left the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the King Charles Suite which was wonderful. Warm & comfortable with an attached sitting room. Though the room overlooked the busy main road, there was no real noise from the traffic. We ate in the hotel restaurant on Saturday night, the food was lovely, with good attentive, though not intrusive, service. Because of the high standard of our meal we decided to eat in the Snug bar the following evening, with it's lovely open fire, and we weren't disappointed. Breakfasts had a good choice of hot food, along with cereals, pastries etc. All in all a very enjoyable stay, infact we are already planning our next stay. Thank you Roberto and your team!
