The Royal Norfolk Hotel
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in Bognor Regis
Reviewed 25 October 2012

I went on this hotel with Alpha travel, and found the hotel very clean and comfortable. The staff were very polite, helpful, and friendly.
The food was good value, with plenty of choice of menu, and i would recommend this hotel
For 'TravelwiseKent' to comment on here that the hotel was full of Alpha coaches, and in some was indicating that we shoudnt be there, i find insulting. If he is such a snob, he should go elsewhere
We are mostly older people and have more manners than he has.

Looking for somewhere to stay whilst out on a sketching 2 days, I found a special offer on the net for this hotel. At £75 a night it was excellent value. The hotel was welcoming, staff helpful, and the room spacious. It was clean and was as well equipped as it needed to be, and the breakfast was very good. All in all I would certainly recommend this if you can get it at or near this kind of price.

We booked in here as we were going to Chichester the next day for a lunch but all hotels in that area were fully booked because of Chichester Revival weekend. The hotel is clean, comfortable, plenty of free parking and very good disabled access. The room was spacious with a great sea view. However it is in partnership with Alfa Travel who organise coach holidays at the hotel so we were lucky there was only one coach party during our one night stay.

We decided to eat elsewhere as the dinner menu looked very basic with little choice. We had a drink in the bar before going out and where the coach party were going to the dining room in stages. The hotel also appeared to be full.

I have no idea what the restaurant is like apart from saying you get waiter service for breakfast which is a nice change. No complaints but no rosettes either.

Room Tip: Ensure you don't get crowded out by coach parties before booking.

We booked for one night, asked for a sea view and got a car park but hey someone needs to have this view! Check in was efficient and room relatively clean and presentable. Window had three settings for the opening dependant on which way up the block of wood was, I assume this was a temporary repair!, bed was lumpy and the room cold with seemingly no way to alter the rads. Breakfast okay. My recommendation sort out the rooms and give all your customers the same attention as your coach parties present throughout our stay.

The location is excellent. The staff are very efficient and professional. However, the excellent breakfast was spoiled by a large coach party. Which seems to be a regular feature of this otherwise great hotel.

A fantastic Alfa coach holiday.We had a relaxing time with friends. Lovely sea view rooms which were clean and furnished to a comfortable standard. Shower and bathroom were very clean. The food was great with lots of choice and you could get any combinations of meals with extras if required. The menus were available for all week which helped to organise your meals. All public areas were always tidy and clean. Although we did not make use of the entertainment the function room was always full and we had good feedback from fellow travellers. We were able to have drinks outside or in the lounge. The Pimms were delicious! All staff were extremely helpful and cheerful, nothing was a problem. Our waitress (Rosie) was exceptionally diligent to her duties and knew our personal preferances after a couple of days! When we arrived there was a fayre on the hotel green so our entrance to the hotel was accompanied by a band playing the "Dam Busters" which we found welcoming. Thankfully the band stopped at 5 pm! A very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Pay extra for sea view- well worth it !

Reasonably priced well appointed and friendly hotel in Bognor Regis, right on the front and overlooking the beach. Rooms spacious and clean. Probably very grand once and although not having the newest fixtures and fittings, there's very little impression of 'tiredness', unlike a lot of similar hotels. The breakfast was excellent. Free car parking

Room Tip: A sea view will cost another tenner.
