What a place! Boyfriend had booked a surprise Valentine's weekend at The Royal.
The hotel is immaculate, classy and has friendly and welcoming staff. We had a fabulous room looking over Ventnor harbour and the hotel garden.
We ate dinner at The Royal on both night's of our stay. The food was excellent - couldn't fault it. The cheesy soufflé to start was amazing using a local cheese. This was followed by pork and to finish a deconstructed cold rhubarb crumble and custard that was to die for. On the second night we had a 5 course tasting menu the highlights of which were an amazing duck main course and a rhubarb tasting platter that was as pretty as a picture and tasted as good.
We had eaten at The Ledbury in London (2 michelin stars) the weekend previously and though the food at The Royal is not quite as refined, it was still perfect.
Travelling home today and taking with us great memories of a lovely hotel, offering excellent service and outstanding food.More
