This is our second visit to The Royal Hotel in recent years and I must say that my initial review still holds strong.
The staff are polite and so attentive, with many recalling our surname and greeting us whenever appropriate. The rooms are clean, and spacious with decor to match the hotels ambience.
This time our room was south facing, and the views of the sea were glorious.
However, all of this pales into insignificance when you step into the hotels restaurant. I consider myself quite experienced when it comes to fine-dining and this is nothing short of fine! The waiters and waitresses are discreet but assiduously attend to the comfort and requests of their guests. The food is simply devine, with a wine menu unsurpassed anywhere else that I know of throughout the Isle of Wight.
Sadly the weather wasn't kind whilst we visited which prevented us from enjoying the outdoor viewing area or swimming pool. However, in the past we have used both facilities and again have no complaints. the lawns and gardens are well manicured and full of many beautiful varieties of flora and fauna.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Royal so much, that we have booked to spend another 3 nights there next June, to celebrate our Ruby anniversary.
