I stayed here recently with my wife. We attended a wedding and therefore thought where better then the Royal for an overnight at a reasonable price. We checked in relatively early. Unfortunately there seem to be some carry on in the bar which resulted in a distraction for everyone. We could have been left standing around like fools but thankfully one of the staff, a young woman named Diana, showed an awareness and sense of professionalism which was missing from most of her co - workers on the night and she welcomed us to the main desk and checked us in. I made reference to the distraction around us and in fairness she brushed it off and continued with what I can only describe as a very competent approach in the situation. One of her colleagues from the bar also showed the same work ethic as Diana but unfortunately I didn't get his name. All in all the reviews of the rooms which I have only recently read are valid and the hotel does need an injection of life and cash. I hope the owners realise the potential they have in their hands as there is not a lot of Hotel competition in Bray. Some of the staff they have are 5 star equivalent. How they have ended up here is beyond me. Hotel management should take note before it's too late. Will I return - the jury is out on that!
