We wanted to make a booking at the last minute and initially had difficulty in getting our calls to reception answered. Fortunately we did not give up ! We were given a very large room with a very large modern bathroom. It was spotless, well decorated, bright , airy and adequately furnished with many of the little extras (shampoos, biscuits etc). There was a side view of the sea.
The restaurant appears to need a chef but the breakfast was faultless.
We will return to this excellent location.

Room Tip: Ask for a full sea view, if available.

Fantastic location on the beach. Go for one of the sea facing rooms if you can. Well worth the money. Staff are great. Will be back. We had breakfast on the balcony over looking the sea. even though it was chilly, there was a small heater to take the edge off.
Loved it.

Lovely rooms, great food, friendly attentive staff in a location right on the water. What more could you want ? The price is also quite reasonable for the quality of the hotel.We had a a family room that was quite spacious, would recommend this hotel.

We recently stayed for a couple of nights at the Royal Hotel Deal in one of their sea view rooms, Nelson!

The location of the hotel is great and the room was lovely, plenty of room with an amazing terrace overlooking the sea! The bathroom was quite small but o.k with a walk in shower etc but we also had a freestanding bath in the bedroom... It would have been lovely to have had breakfast on the balcony however the weather wasn't good enough.

Breakfast on the first day was o.k but on the second when the hotel was full, the staff struggled, we needed to ask for the the buffet to be replenished and service was a lot slower , they probably need more than 2 waitresses when the hotel is full to make sure things run smoothly!

The bar downstairs was very busy and noisy on the Friday night, but quieter and more cosy on Saturday.

All in all a lovely weekend break and I'm sure we will return!

Nice and cool. Modern/refurbished rooms. Perfect location. Good british food. Very kind staff.
Best place to be in the region !
We stay there every month, no regret at all. The room overlooking the Channel is very nice, as well as the wooden balcony. We will come back ! Hope we can have a beer outside with warmer temperature in June.

The position of the Royal in Deal and also for playing the golf course was ideal. The hotel rooms were v good and well priced for the location. We were well looked after with one of the roooms being unavailable on the first night and then spending one night in an altenate room. Not too much trouble and the staff wee v good. My only issue was that breakfast was slow and the staf did forget things which was a problem as we had tee times to meet. Overall though we enjoyed our 3 nights and were well looked after.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms on the side did not attract a premium cost.

Our room had a lovely sea view and was extremely comfortable. Brilliant, happy staff made the whole stay relaxing and fun. Breakfast was especially good, both for choice and service. We have returned since for a meal and drinks because the Royal has such a good atmosphere. Parking in the adjacent public car park turned out to be fine, staff explained the rules and overnight parking is actually free. Slight problem with their web site when booking, very odd siting of shaver point in bathroom, otherwise only praise.

Room Tip: Sea view, away from the street probably best.
