horrible experiencePosted Sep 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
there is no room service so when we got there we were left hungry as all the surrounding pubs dont serve after 9. the rooms were horrible ugly and old deco which had an old smell. The bathroom was just ridiculous so dirty and the tub was permanently stained. the worst hotel experience ever I wouldn't recommend it.

Woul not returnPosted Aug 19, 2013
Location: Very good
Service good breakfast good and great views of woolacombe bay but the rooms are very dated could do with a big refurb we had a family room a double and 2 single beds, the double was that bad the first night did not sleep at all so swapped with the children for the rest of holiday they didn't seem to mind the springs you can also here every footstep of the people above you we had a balcony but the floor was all cracked and broken.

Ok for families but could do much more.Posted Aug 12, 2013
Pros: Cheap and good distance to the sea.
Cons: Noise, dreary staff.
It was a last minute choice to stay at the Royal. The staff were averagely polite but seemed very dreary, stuck to the bare minimum. The room was clean but could really do with some updating. Could here every word and footstep through the walls of passers by or the next rooms. Good for families with kids as there seemed a lot of entertainment. Overall an ok last minute/cheap option.

Cheap, cheerful and good valuePosted Aug 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Nice location with a stunning view across the bay. A 5 minute walk to the beach and shops. A decent hotel, friendly service and a nice indoor pool. One one or two of the other leisure pastimes could do with an update but thats nitpicking. Rooms cleaned daily to a good standard. No problems.

dreadful bathroomPosted Aug 10, 2013
Pros: view across woolacombe bay
Cons: bathroom, parking, too many stairs
Location: unable to walk anywhere, situated on a very steep hill
Hotel room was reasonable,however the condition of the bathroom was very poor. The bath had some very unpleasant stains and was completely unusable! It was in need of a complete refit, a shelf for toiletries would have been helpful. The hotel is situated up a very steep hill and is a difficult walk to and from the village of woolacombe, this needs to be pointed out as it makes the hotel totally unsuitable for many visitors.

Shabby, scruffy and overpriced: AVOID!!!!Posted Aug 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Without doubt the grubbiest, shabbiest and most depressing hotel I have ever stayed in, and I have stayed in a lot. Bathroom had chipped paneling, stained bath and worn out floor with no extract fan (contravenes building regs). Corridors unventilated and musty. Breakfast tables set out in straight lines like Butlins; breakfast poor, coffee undrinkable. Would not be a problem if the price was, say, about half of what was charged. However, it was totally full, so what do I know/
