We stayed at the Royal Faulkner during folk week, when I imagine it is at its busiest. Even so all the staff who were stretched for time were polite friendly and efficient. The hotel is clearly a one off and harks back to a time when life was more gracious where people talked to each other with interest and respect and where those who could would take afternoon tea. When booking at the Royal Forkner the option is to take full board. Which means that the overall price includes a full cooked breakfast, afternoon tea and an evening five course meal. All of the food tasted fresh and
It was clear that we had a team of chefs who used either local produce or very high quality suppliers.
Our room was on the first floor well appointed with a Seaview and balcony. Many of the guests
were over the age of 50 or 60. As we were there in Folk Week the mix was slightly better
with some younger people as well. But this hotel very much caters for its elderly customers, having said that anyone, irrespective of age would like a sea view, free internet access, fresh tasteful food and the kind of friendly service we experienced.
Thank you to the hotel for a lovely stay
