“Warm and welcoming bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

A lovely place to visit in Nelson, always warm and cosy. Top hosts Richard and Karen go out of their way to be friendly. Highly recommended. Great place to play pool (free), watch sport, play darts or just chill out with a drink.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

While Travelling around NZ we stumbled across this amazing family run hotel/Bar in the heart of Nelson. We ended up watching the Lions Rugby Match here and boy were we made welcome. We were met by proprietors Richard, his wife and Richard Junior who welcomed us true NZ style. The atmosphere was amazing and for some reason I felt like I was at home in my local. There was a large selection of beers and wine (we were given samples of each until we decided on our drink!) and later in the night we were treated with free finger food which was amazing. We mingled with the locals and was even given control of the pub music play list selection for a while! Richy and everyone was really friendly and I can confidently say our night out in the Royal Hotel was the best night out we had in New Zealand!! A Must visit for anyone looking for a good time in Nelson

Great hospitality. Very friendly and relaxing being hosted by the owners, chilling playing pool and darts. Met some great people and had a cosy stay in the clean and tidy old school room. Very handy location right in the city also.
