Traditional hotel in a central location

Posted Apr 18, 2014
Cons: This hotel does not have a lift, so it may be unsuitable for some people.
We had an enjoyable 2 night stay at the hotel. The decor and furnishings reflect the history of the hotel. We loved the quirky sloping floors and interesting antiques. The rooms were comfortable, well maintained and nicely decorated. The room had tea and fresh coffee making facilities. The breakfast was excellent, with an extensive choice of foods. The dining room has a brilliant view of the River Dart and it's promenade. The staff were well mannered and friendly. It offers several different styles of dinning. We ate in the informal Galleon Bar. The service prompt. The portions were a bit too big for us. Overall the hotel has a nice atmosphere and I would recommend it.

A treat of a stay in Dartmouth.

Posted Aug 16, 2013
Pros: The food, the air-contioning, the cleanliness.
Cons: The price. The noise of the seagulls, day and night (or so it seemed).
Location: Best location on the front.
I would highly recommend this hotel. Very clean, comfortable rooms. The air-contioning system was the quietest I've experienced in any hotel, it was an absolute godsend in August. Excellent breakfast, great choice of everything, the orange juice was topnotch. The two bars served superb quality meals, great atmosphere. A bit pricey to stay the night, not cheap, but good location in Dartmouth.

A Very Comfortable Place to Stay

Posted Jul 22, 2013
Pros: Cleanliness, Helpful staff, Comfortable well appointed rooms, Great breakfast
Cons: No lift, particularly if your room is on the top floor!
Location: Fantastic location overlooking the inner harbour and river and in the heart of the shops, pubs and restaurants. No need for a car to explore the town.
A hotel in which we have stayed previously and wouldn't hesitate to do so again. Very comfortable, great breakfast, pleasant staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dartmouth.

Best hotel in Dartmouth for business and pleasure

Posted Jul 15, 2013
Pros: Breakfast, free cotton bag, unique room
Cons: No air conditioning in the rooms
Location: Location is rght in the town and perfect access to everything (shops, restaurants, ferry crossings, Britannia Royal Naval College)
I've stayed in a few hotels in Dartmouth, on business and it is definitely the best hotel in Dartmouth. The hotel is quirky, in a good way and unique. The only downside is that there was not air conditioning in my room and it was slightly hot when going to bed. However, apart from that everything else is perfect. The breakfast was perfect, giving you a great start to the day. They even allow you to take their cotton bag on the door as a gift. Highly recommended hotel, looking forward to booking up with it again when I return.

Seagull nightmare

Posted Jul 2, 2012
It was impossible to stay at the hotel for more than one night of our planned stay of 5 nights. This was because the hotel is plagued by a horde of seagulls who make a continuous loud noise throughout the night. We have never had such an apalling experience.

Royal Castle Hotel, Dartmouth

Posted Jan 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
Have stayed many times at the Royal Castle. However feel that it is slowly going downhill. Only decent hotel in the town centre, and is therefore popular. However it is living off of its past reputation Bedrooms and bathrooms are in need of a make over. When booking online, be aware that if you are travelling with children the rate you are quoted and agree to is not the rate you will pay. Hotel will call you and tell you that each child is an extra £20 per night ( the same as if you take a dog!!). Have no problem paying the supplement, but first time ever that once I have booked, hotel call within 10 minutes and am told that the price I have agreed to pay is incorrect. Also be warned that if you book or are allocated a river view room you will suffer disturbed sleep. Rooms are above pub entrance so smokers under your window until closing time, beer delivery and then bin lorry from about 5am!! Positive is that the breakfast is great, service not so good on second morning. Owner very friendly and is always around and about hotel talking to guests. Hotel seems to have lost its' shine.
