Situated well in the town, very friendly helpful staff, convenient car park, nice breakfast. Very well kept and clean
Very dated and needs a refurb, nothing is tatty just quite old fashioned!
The publicity description of the hotel does not convey the very high quality of the service and food provided; the staff were attentive without being intrusive. This is excellent value for money.
Great feel, warm room, clean & tidy throughout, good food & v helpful staff
Good clean, comfortable accommodation that felt safe. Tea etc in room & breakfasts very good. Service generally good & staff pleasant. Bar food very good & menu varied. Car parking just across the road, so quite convenient. Would I go back? Yes
First night my room was between men's & disabled toilets & a cloakroom created in the next room for a formal dinner. Very noisy! First breakfast groups & couples were served ahead of me (sadly not unusual for single travellers!).
Bed comfortable Staff Helpful Located near town centre Comfortable bar.
Decor in dining room dated Plastic flowers in same Music in dining room. Heating too variable seemed to have heating virtually unadjustible. Non opening windows Charge extra for cafetiere coffee Dangerous shower too hot too cold not able to adjust easily
Didn't think it was value for money. We were in an attic room, wouldn't class it as 3 star accommodation. We left the room one morning at 10 when we arrived back in evening our room had been cleaned and room door left wide open rang down to reception to tell them they apologised and said have a look round and see if anything is missing. They didn't even ring us back to make sure everything was ok. We were not impressed.
food and staff excellent lovely hotel
location did not match up
Traditional English hotel Huge room in historic building Very grand with original features Delicious food
Decor needs a little sprucing up
Good size room with excellent heating it was very warm and comfy,the room was very clean and tidy.Good breakfast with plenty of choice.
Bathroom was a bit dated,taps on the sink were hard to turn off and on and the water took forever to drain away, the shower over the bath was a bit on the slow side and sometimes the shower head would drop and flood the room!!. Not the best view out of the window a wall about 10ft away.The room was over the kitchen which was very noisy from the extractor.
As a place to work from, in the main, this hotel serves its purpose well. The bed was very comfortable and the bar meals well priced and of good quality. Staff were helpful and friendly. Although certainly not speedy, there is enough wifi to get emails.
There was no temperature regulator on my shower - which required some pretty nifty footwork to avoid being alternately hit by very hot and freezing water.
Great location and great staff Good place near the sea
Clean & comfortable room, excellent bathroom & shower. comfortable bed (single room) Good breakfast, pleasant breakfast room & friendly staff. Private car park
We enjoyed all our stay. The staff were friendly. We got an upgrade free to a room overlooking the river, which was comfortable and clean. The food and service in the Restaurant were fine. We commented that it is good to see hotel food of good quality.
Thank you so much for all you did to make my 60th birthday celebration a very special evening. We were just a small group of 5. The service, food and wine were excellent. We have stayed at the hotel several times over the last few years and the standard was as good as ever.
Quiet room (214)
Outdated storage heater in room, which was a little chilly. Impossible to get a constant, comfortable shower temperature
The hotel was dated but had lots of charm
Food was bland,tasteless and lacked imagination. We found the menu offered a good variety
Everything as usual......!
A lovely sense of old-fashioned care, deserving the title "Royal". We had intended to go out to a restaurant but I am glad we didn't - the food was good and the service stylish.
Service, facilities and cleanliness all great. Lovely dinner.
Bed was very hard indeed. Not easy to cross the road to get back to the car park.
Very friendly welcome. Value for money. Old fashioned charm
Bathroom towels were far too small. Room too hot.
Super breakfast with fine service.
The room itself was a little small for two people.
Beautiful hotel, excellent staff and fantastic breakfast.
Bed was a little on small side
The staff went out of their way to help me. They couldn't have done more. Perfect location for a trip to Lundy
The hotel is right by the Bideford Bridge and was really comfortable. It really was an excellent base for exploring North Devon.
Food was good, not very hot tho, staff very efficient and friendly. Our room had a horrible view but was clean and comfy.
