Staying away on business is a real bore, especially on a budget, you are never quite sure if your booking will pay off, however, I'm delighted to say, I got it right this time! The Royal and Fortescue has made this week a pleasure to be away from home! The staff are wonderful! Greeted by the smiley receptionist, helped by the porters with parking, especially after returning from a late shift, they were more than happy to help find me a parking space! Exchanged morning pleasantries with the chambermaid, waiting staff are very polite and attentive, and the barman was lovely and even remembered my drink, from the night before! Everyone looks happy to work here which is always a good sign! The food is wonderful, having 3 restaurants, there's no chance of getting bored with the same menu and the room service menu is more than adequate. The room is clean and well presented and surprisingly comfortable for a twin! The location is brilliant with good access to all the wonderful shops, and Barnstaple has a few! The lady who works in the toy shop opposite is lovely! If you fancy a treat, the nail bar opposite is good to, ask for Terri, she works Tuesdays and does a fab pedicure! The Sister hotel has leisure facilities, which I didn't get time to test out, but did nip over for a massage with Suzi, well worth it! She's a great therapist! The lounge area is extremely comfortable and I was pleased to watch the sport season on the tv in the corner (on quietly as not to disturb!). All in all ive had a great stay and look forward to coming back again! Thank you!
