Excellent hotel with friendly helpful staff. Very clean and superb food served either in the bar or restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble and staff went out of their way to look after us. Hotel in an excellent situation for all the local sights and amenities.It was a traditional well run hotel overlooking the sea allowing long walks along the sea front. Car parking in the hotel car park or nearby street was free which is a bonus.The twin room was large with all required facilities and had a sea view. The reception staff were always ready to help with maps, directions or calling a taxi.

Had a Fantastic time here. the room was large with side sea view,great for watching the ferries. cruise ships and battle ships going in and out of portsmouth harbour. The hotel overall was of very good standard, the staff fantastic, and food very nice, we were with a large party so the meals were buffet style, we stayed an extra night when everyone else had departed our meal was then waiter service. The only let down was the bar prices Double Bacardi and Coke and a pint of Cider £13+ ouch. The hotel is a great base for getting into portsmouth, you can walk to the spinnaker in about half an hour or the buses ouside the hotel are every 10 mins.
Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 101 side sea view, quiet and warm sunny room

I stayed at the Royal Beach Hotel 6th-9th Oct 2013. It is in a lovely location overlooking the promenade and pier. Check in was efficient and welcoming and the reception area very clean. My single room was surprisingly spacious, clean, with a comfortable bed and the all important (for me) sea view. I ate breakfasts and dinners at the hotel-buffet breakfasts with plenty of choice and a very good evening menu. The wine list was also good and though the bottle I requested was not available, a similar one was suggested. The restaurant staff were friendly and ready to help if necessary. I had morning coffee in the lounge bar area and this is also kept well and it overlooks the promenade. As I left the hotel one morning I asked a member of staff for directions to Southsea town and she was happy to help. She told me what was available in the town and also roundabout. I would stay at this hotel again as I was made to feel very welcome and the location met my needs- a safe area for strolling with fantastic views.

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.
