I titled my review based on my experience during my 2 nights stay with my fiancee for my 30th birthday, my partner booked the trip for us and I was a little worried because I have high standards when I'm not in my own house/bed :) however I must say this hotel didn't disappoint me at all.
The food! Amazing! Good choice for the 3 course meal I had, starter sea food soup, main pork cooked 5 ways, and chocolate heaven (very nice) for desert, my partner loved hers too, can't remember what she had though though the sweet was the citrus tart.
We also got a picnic from the hotel, very nice for a special occasion, we ate our's on the top off the hill with lovely views.
The room, we stayed in room 35, nice clean room, the bed was so comfortable, its was a little warm but we just slept with the windows open, the bathroom was modern but still was in keeping with the hotel.
We found the staff externally helpful, they couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable, they worked long days and none stop, I'm not sure what wage the hotel industry pay's but these guys and girls earn every penny they get.
And after all the wonderful food and drink there are some nice walks and plenty of steps around to burn it all off.
Thanks for memories the royal hotel and its wonderful staff.
