“Don't book for a wedding!”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We were due to have our wedding at the Royal in spring 2014. After having a visit and reading the brochure we could see the hotel was dilapidated but the brochure stated the hotel was to undergo extensive refurbishment in 2013. This never happened and on subsequent visits the hotels state of repair worsened, increasing damp patches, shabby furniture and generally dirty. The hotel management team were unaccommodating to the menu for the wedding breakfast and we were told there is no menu sampling available which is standard practice for most wedding venues. Also, we did not sign a contract but the hotel felt it was in their power to with hold £200 deposit which we still have not got back. Ultimately we felt we were paying top price for a hotel and service which falls well below expectations, there are much nicer venues in the surrounding area, so brides and grooms be aware of this hotel, I would not recommend you book.

We eat at the Royal Hotel regularly and it never disappoints!! All the staff are warm, friendly and nothing is too much trouble even when we request food/drinks to have in the garden whether or not they are busy with functions etc....A big thank you once again!

I was booked in for two nights through work and after reading the reviews, I was dubious.
I was greeted with friendly attentive staff. Who explained the car parking procedure. The receptionist directed me to my room and explained where and when breakfast would be.
Although my room was not refurbished, it was newly decorated and clean. As was my shower ensuite.
Not knowing the area i ate in the restaurant. I was told it was a new menu with a variety of dishes. The food was hot, tasty and very enjoyable. The breakfast didn't disappoint either and was cooked to order and delicious.

Will definately stay again next time I am in the area.

I stay here a few times a month due to work. The hotel needs a good make over and it we'll dated. The rooms are old with wallpaper hanging off and damp patches on the ceilings. They can also get very cold when the temp drops however some rooms do have a back up electric radiator in. Breakfast food quality can be hit and miss. The showers in most rooms are very poor with most just having a trickle. On a positive note the staff are friendly and the bed sheets are clean. If I was paying I wouldn't stay here.

Very pleased with this hotel, tho0ugh we only stayed one night. Good bar, with real ale. Did not eat there so cannot comment on food. Room and beds very comfortable and room spacious. Location in Ashby is at far end of town centre, building beautiful Regency manor house.

Generally in need of renovation. Very basic room with a lumpy bed, poor TV, weak shower and radiator behind the curtains. Needs modernisation. The breakfast was a buffet style but poor quality with cold plates and no fried eggs! Don't expect anything special here.

My partner and I totally missed Christmas because of a nasty virus so today was to be our belated 'Christmas Dinner'. It did not disappoint. Three delicious courses, served by warm friendly professional staff ( later discovered it was a husband and wife team running the restaurant today. We'll done 'The Royal' a winning combination.) would highly recommend this Carvery to anyone. Will definitely be back.
