Having stayed at this gorgeous Hotel on several occasions over aperiod of ten or so years. We were extremely disappointed with the efforts of a newly appointed executive chef & his new team .The food at the 'Royal' was always considered by us to be the best on the Island. Alas,no longer......
undercooked, tasteless fish was returned to the kitchen. The staff however were fantastic. they couldn't have been more helpful & understanding. they even asked us if we would like to chose anything that was not on the 'Newly created "artistic" menu which we gladly accepted, finally opting for good old fashioned English fish & chips!
The following day we had invited friends to join us there for Sunday lunch which I have to say was very good indeed but we decided to cancel our prepaid dinner in exchange for the lunch which was very considerate of the staff.
Overall, this still remains the best Hotel on the Island in terms of staff friendliness,cleanliness,comfort & ambiance.
Please Please Please Mr Bailey try every method available to sort out this problem even if it means paying the previous Chef double to persuade him to return
