“Rooms, service and cleaning second to none”
Reviewed 6 March 2011

The staff work very hard and are very very pleasant indeed alway on hand to help or see to your needs. The food is well worthy of the four stars.
Bed rooms are quite large, if i had to complain about anything the bathrooms are very cold. Our bathroom would have benifited having a larger radiator instead of a small towl warmer. we did report this to the reception. Overall very nice stay at the ventnor hotel.If you are lookin for a spa high life weekend look elsewhere mostly retired people who go back year after year i guess

Stayed for 3 nights with partner and 13 month old. Initial room was ok, although 3rd floor a major pain lugging lots of bags and travel cot to. Main problem was that it was freezing, Even the bathroom. We woke during the night because we were so cold. However hotel staff were excellent and we moved the next day to a lovely warm room.
Hotel and staff were great with our little one (and there were several small tots staying). Lots of highchairs in restaurant, high tea for them as well and a great baby-listening service. And for us - breakfast cooked to order, fabulous food in the evening and a good wine selection, so wonderfully relaxing. Owning family often around as well which seemed to keep staff on their toes!

This was our 3rd stay at The Royal, which we have returned to because of the quality, comfort and friendliness of the hotel. The hotel staff have strove on each visit to deliver the best level of service with nothing being to much bother.

We went to the Royal for our first wedding anniversary and could not have asked anything more of a hotel. The room was modern and ever so stylish whilst also providing loads of space and a wonderful view over the perfectly presented hotel grounds and outdoor pool to the sea. All the staff members were attentive and helpful from the check in to check out and the food could only be described as 5 star. I would have no issue recommending this hotel to anyone I know.
