I love going to the Royal, and I have returned several times over the past few years. The rooms are comfortable and quiet; the food tasty, although I might have eaten too much, and the staff are helpful and friendly.

we stayed for two nights food was excellent, staff was very friendly including Richard one of the grandsons room was nice but two of the drawers were not fitted in properly so I couldn't use them. we were a bit disappointed when we came back at 5.15 after walking around gardens for 4 hours to be told we couldn't get a drink as the bar didn't open until 6 o'clock, so we walked into town to get a well deserved lager & glass of wine. floor boards were very noisy & you could hear everyone talking walking past the room.

Only a one night stay but I found the staff very accommodating and the hotel had a nice atmosphere. You can use the gym and swimming pool in another hotel in Barnstaple but that is not really practical if you get back to the hotel late in the day. Good location in Bideford.

We stayed for a week whilst competing in a County Week Golf competition near by.
The room was cleaned every day and the staff went out of their way to accommodate early breakfast for the team and late evening meals together.
They would have provided a separate room for a friendly presentation but instead we were able to use the restaurant after the other guest had left.
The staff were simply excellent, the food just lovely and trust me we tried everything can recommend their specials!
The only down side of the trip for me is timing out on the Wi-Fi too quickly but considering that was the only downer everything else was brilliant!
