We have just returned from a 3 day family break with Aunties and cousins but left after two days due to a sickness bug that seems to be sweeping through the hotel. Many other vistors have reported becoming ill, this was first brought to our attention on the first afternoon when 2 ambulances appeared. Two of our party were sick whilst there, so we decided it best if we all left before any more of us became to ill to tackle a long journery home. Since getting home another two of our group have now gone down with sickness.
My personal views are that the hotel needs a complete clean from top to bottom and the food, which is very poor quality and the storage of it (ie. yougarts and juice left out in the warm dining room without any ice or refridgation) should be addressed as a matter of urgency.
Due to the fact that this is a Shearings hotel it tends to attract very elderly clients that go by an organised coach trip and really feels more like a home rather than a hotel. But in my opionion the hotel should be more vigilant with hygiene and standards to prevent this situation occuring.
Some of the rooms have been updated and acceptable but others should be condemed until the neccesary refurbs have been completed.
I feel sad about having to write this report but I really feel for the coach loads of people arriving, many with walking difficulties, as we were leaving incase they to are taken ill too.

- The Royal is an impressive building of intricate architecture built in the ‘Free Renaissance’ style and boasting fantastic views over the beach and bay. Only a short stroll to the shops, seaside attractions and the famously beautiful harbour and marina, the location could not be better for exploring all that Weymouth has to offer. Despite its imposing structure, the Royal is enjoyed for its warm and friendly atmosphere. The hotel benefits from a games room and comfortable lounges in which to enjoy the entertainment. During the day you also have the option to relax in the public bar whilst you admire the views overlooking the bay. ... more less
