our first time at the royal beach, its a gem, hospitality excellence , from all staff ,our room 308 was big and spacious, clean , bed very comfortable, views from windows over the solent were amazing, brilliant location, beach over the road from hotel, buses run every ten minutes, just out side of the hotel, or if you like walking there are so many places, with in walking distance, what we liked best was the vast dinning room with immaculate tables and fabulous food, complements to the chef, also breakfast was plentiful, HOT and FRESH, p s , car park to small, but that will not stop us from coming back, we enjoy our stay, linda and brian pearce Warwick

We stayed here in September 2013. Very comfortable room and great service at a very reasonable price. Great location right on the ocean and convenient to all the sights in Portsmouth. I would return to this hotel and would recommend it. The Royal Beach hotel made our stay in Portsmouth all the more pleasurable.

We had missed the ferry and were looking for anywhere to spend the night. We just drove and rang various hotel bells, no one answered as it was around 2315. This door was open and a totally charming night manager Peter Smith found us a room showed us the last remaining parking place and made sure we got an early morning call. Even at 0645 there was breakfast ready, super staff serving all manner of folk in a vast dining room with immaculate tables.

We have been to the Royal Beach Hotel for several years and hope to repeat this in the future. The staff are so very friendly and extremely efficient. Having asked for maintenance to attend due to dropping an earring into an inaccessible corner I was astonished to find this was accomplished before I returned to my room after breakfast, prompt indeed. My only complaint is the extra pounds I have added to my already overweight frame due to the excellent food we enjoyed. A most enjoyable short break indeed. Thank you.

Room Tip: Don't forget to ask for the view that suits you.

A party of 8 friends went to visit the Mary rose exabition in Portsmouth,on the 25/26th September 2013.
We stayed at the BEST WESTON, ROYAL BEACH HOTEL,On our arrival we found the reception people to be very polite,with all the information we would need,We were asked if we needed help with our luggage.
The rooms were large,clean, and very comfortable (see view rooms),
The restraunt was very clean and the staff could not have been more helpful,
We found the food to be of great satisfaction,
As a group, or on our own we certainly would return to the ROYAL BEACH HOTEL on any further visits to Portsmouth, one of the best hotels that we have stayed in.

Visited Portsmouth for 5 days on a coach trip from Lincoln. On arrival there was no delay, the Hotel staff were ready for us and we were directed to our room. The staff then delivered our cases to the room.The room was large,. clean and comfortable..As there were several groups staying in the hotel our group were scheduled for dinner at 1830 hrs. This was fine and after a little "nip" in the bar we joined our group in the restaurant. The food was superb, and the staff in the restaurant were very friendly and efficient.I know the hotel is getting on a bit, but the service we had could not have been bettered by a 5 star hotel.
